@[email protected]@'s 1st post; Want to grow some Pan Cyan's?
Posted 20 December 2007 - 07:27 PM
Hey everyone!! This is my first post in the Mycotopia however, I would like to share my wonderful experience of growing Pan Cyan Hawaii’s for my first grow!! Don’t listen to the horror stories, all you have to do is give them what they want, and they will give in return 10 Fold, I promise. So, here it is.
1) Choose a “Pan” happy jarring substrate (wbs or a mix of wbs with planting soil works great)
2) Steralize your jars (pressure cook or steam)
3) Wait for the jars to cool by putting them in your fridge or freezer. (speedy)
3) Use sterilizing processes to inoc your jars (I used quart jars for mine w/ 4 point inoc)
4) Place them into a warming area (tub in tub with aquarium water heater at 81 F is perfect).
5) In 2 weeks they will be done
1) Buy a mini bail of staw at home dep. for 3-4 dollars. Cut to 2 in. strands and then pre-pasteaurize it by soaking it overnight in bleach water and horticulture lime.
2) Buy compost; (Mine was 2 dollars for a 40 lb back with humus in it) then strain and wash your straw and mix it in 50/50 with the compost and put into oven safe trays. You want to leave enough room for the jar substrate mix to also be mixed into the trays so that you will eventually have 2-3 inches of spawned substrate after the pasteaurization process
3) Cover with foil and place your compost/straw trays into your oven and bake them for 2 hours at 175 degrees F. Yes, it smells like shit because, it is shit..silly! Ta da now you can hurry up and let them cool in your freezer. No time to wait!! (just don’t let mom/wife/girlfriend or whoemever see the trays of shit in the freezer, ok?)
4) Now you have cool trays. Mix a very small amount of lime into the mix and use a Ph tester to make sure that your mushies will be happy there. 7.5 is perfect shoot for that. Once ready, you can mix your spawn in (2-3 in thick total with compost/straw) and then recover with the foil, this time adding some holes for air to get in. Place the full trays into your incubator. Wait 5 days.
5) Peak in at your bulk sub now! Grows fast, eh? Yeah, I was shocked. Now, get yourself some peat,cactus mix, and verm and mix it 25/25/50. Pasteaurize in the oven once again, maybe an hour is good. Let cool fast in the freezer and once again mix a touch of lime for balance.
6) Lightly sprinkle the casing layer onto the bulk substrate at about ¼ to ½ inch. No more!
7) While uncovered, you are ready to place the trays into your Fruiting Chamber…Chamber..Chamber….Ch….(echo echo echo)
8) 1 week later and you could have pins like me, nice fatty ones too. Good times.
Fruiting Chamber Solutions
1) 90 Ct. Sterlight Tub with clear lid 11 $
2) 2 Foot hose (cheaper the better) 2 in diameter $3
3) Nashua waterproof multi purpose tape (Best stuff to have, it’s waterproof and semi-reusable) it beats the crap out of duck tape and it is easy clean up, a must have!! $6
3) Ultra-sonic cool mist humidifier. ($25 dollars at Wallgreans)
4) Electrical outlet timer. 2 on/off setting at 30 minute minimums work good (HomeDep.) $6\
5) Finally, humidifier filter for (clogging up the hose and for sealing up the FAE hole on top of your FC. Got it!! Check it out…
Re-use your fish tank water heater to make a heat-bomb and use that to keep the temps a little warmer in the FC. Pan's would rather have 85 F over 75 F. Use your special tape for sealing it together.
That’s All!!! ok so you’re spending around 50 bucks for a large amount of killer shrooms, well worth it. Good luck, and thanks to all of the great people at Mycotopia who educated me on how to be successful instantly, Thank You…@[email protected]@ :eusa_clap
Pictures are soon to follow A.S.A.P. Thanks!!!

i see your fruiting out of turkey tins. another alternative that foaf is using are black seedling flat trays. they are not as deep but very useful spacewise and for efficiency.
the depth is about 2". you run your casing at level with the top of the seedling flat. very good stuff.
not sure how long those turkey tins last but from experience, they get bent out of shape real quickly. cat litter trays also work very well. get the ones that are about 6" deep or so.
