Well, this is my first time at this after many years and then I'd only done a couple of runs. I 'nocced 'em up on the 14th and this is what they look like on the 20th. I'm pretty happy with the results so far... just got to keep an eye out for that green meanie! :nunchuck:

As you can see in the pics, I've got pesa, golden teachers and pf amazons. Any tips, trick or anecdotes are welcome. :bow:

Looking good ! :cool:

I just started some PESA as well and they are showing. Since its been awhile you could take the easy path and birth the cakes maybe with a verm casing (dunk and roll).

You could also do some cakes and experiment with some of the others. I like to mix straw / poo with colonized grains or cakes. Whatever tickles your fancy.

I noticed your lids are tinfoil with holes. This can work for sure and I think I see a vermiculite top barrier which helps. You may want to explore threads around here with lid setups. Many use tyvek or polyfil. Tinfoil lids can tear very easily.

Here's a lid link: http://mycotopia.net...s-lids-filters/

Hope all goes well for you. Keep us posted.

cheers

oibchip ... thank you! I'm very pleased with the results so far! :eusa_danc

eastwood ... thank you and I'm posting a pic of my fruiting chamber. will have perlite and water in the bottom. As you can see, I painted a little over half way up for light.

hyphaenation ... thanks! I believe I'm going to take the easy path with my first run and just do the cakes. I'll experiment after I get a little more confident. thank you for the lid link!

Hippie3 ... thanks! I appreciate it!

mycobri ... they did get off to a fast start. :hippie: When I made my syringes I sort of had a bit of spore overload.

Here's a look after one week ... almost there!
:meditate:

Great job Miss Nomer.Make sure when you add the perlite that there is no standing water just get the perlite wet.Good idea painting the fruiting chamber walls.It should benifit you by dec those cakes and its not really much extra work.Amazons, Golden Teachers and pesa were excellant choices.. Keep us updated on Miss Nomers grow show.

eastwood ... Thank you! :D I'll be sure to just get the perlite wet and keep it moist. I'll definitely DEC the cakes. Each strain will be a new treat for us, so this is all very exciting. We've only gotten to enjoy zooms a couple of times and we loved it. :loveeyes:

oibchip ... nope, not long now! The bottom of the jars is almost finished colonizing. I can't wait to get on to the next step! Patience is not one of my virtues. lol :eusa_shhh

cheshire ... I have some in LC but I was afraid they'd contam'd in our recent move. They spent a few months in storage but temps were in the 90's. I've included a couple of pics to see if you guys think it's contam'd or not. The one with Golden Teacher myc in it still has big, white puffy clouds, but that one dark spot has been in it for a long time now. It doesn't really seem to be spreading. I've kept my eye on it for a few months now. :mistrust:

the chosen one ... I try to use the 'kiss' method as often as I can. lol I don't need any help in screwing things up, especially when I try to get fancy and do something I'm not knowledgable enough to try yet. :eusa_pray

I must say I've really enjoyed my reading on this site. All the highlighted words/links in the posts are a super help for newbies like me. Thank you to the Powers That Be. :bow:

I completely agree. Myco U :bow: :headbang:

I wanted to ask a question. Does it matter what you place your cakes on for fruiting? What are the preferred items used for this? Can anything be used as long as it's sterile?

Some folks use foil or mason jar lids. I like the plastic lids off of butter/yogurt/soup-whatever containers. Helps keep the perlite clean and you can move the cakes without handling them. gluck

Birthed my babies this morning. :loveeyes: I can't wait to see the first pins!! I will try to be patient but it's gonna be tough. Hopefully things will all go smoothly and we'll have a minizoom forest before long. :eusa_pray Thank you all for your valuable input and kind words. I really appreciate it!! The archives here are a wonderful resource and I've spent a long time reading there. Overall, I'm very impressed with this site. :cool::heart:

If this grow goes well, I really want to tackle some grain teks and casings next. I've only tried once and it was a miserable failure... contam city. :eusa_booh Maybe I'll have more luck this time around. I am a bit more dedicated this time.

Thats a great labeling system.
