I wonder how many new logs you could have grown out while you were trying to save that one?

I still recommend getting one flush from a straw log, then pitching it out and starting another. Straw is cheap. I suppose I should add, imho.

as long as they are healthy, squeeze em for every shroom they have in them

I get my yields over 3 flushes with logs... first is best but after a dunk they still put out 2 more flushes that almost equal the first, sometimes even a bit more... Also, if there is a beating contams archive I have cakes that just finished flushing and they had some pinkish contam while colonizing, they did fine after a bleach dip.. Also I have a PF cake that had some army green contam that the mycelium took over, looks like it ate it... And I have one that looks like blue-green trich but the mycelium has almost completely taken it over as well... I ain't opening any green jars in here, though....

I listen to your advice, Rodg.
I'm in total agreement.

This is just a side project.
I merely wanted to see if I could make it fruit.
Didn't expect anything other than a learning experience, but I got a bonus.

I've been keeping busy...
Getting better at logs, trying some more laundry baskets, experimenting...
I'm just beginning to experiment with composted horse manure.
I recently procured a nice spot on a good friend's land for a compost pile. :)
How do you think a log would perform with around 25% compost?

Peace,
AS

don't let anyone rain on your parade,
it's not all about maximum efficiency
at least not in my world.
the joy of winning the challenge
is more than enough by itself
to justify the effort.

and i recommend dunking it for more flushes
because while straw may be cheap
time is not.

and i recommended using bleach to save this log.
which worked nicely, i might add.

his own.

I just want to make sure that you are referring to sunlight as a separate topic entirely.

I bleach dunked the hell out of it, Hippie.
I was planning on 12, but wound up dunking for 15 hours using your recipe.
It was (still) contaminated when I dunked.
That's why I dunked for so long.
The smell was hard to miss.
It's back in the terrarium just chillin.
I left it out for a few days to drain and breathe (on a plant stand in my bedroom)
And wouldn't you know it...
New mycelial growth.

If this thing flushes again I'll be happy as a pig in shit.
The wet weight of the first flush 4 hours after harvest was just a gram or two shy of 10 oz. Well over 10 oz. including the caps I printed.

I'm going to try to upload my harvest pics again after I post this message.
It's still messin' with me...

Peace,
AS

Alright, I bounced the box
I really hope that it worked.

Marvelous
It did work
Here's the log right before harvest.

BTW... Harvest day was 5/5/05, two days after the previous pics.

Man that log looks great! Damn! I've had so much luck with turning shit into gold with bleach. I hope this thread will inspire people to persue using it with there dunks. The shit works! That log is a fine example! Nice job too! :)

Beautiful bouquet man! I hope you like your neighbors- that looks like fence hopping material.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
This flush was a much needed pick-me-up after a long battle with contamination.
This is actually the first time that I've successfully fruited from straw...
I will forever love bleach.

Thanks again everyone, for all the kind words and support.

And Hippie...
Well...
You da man!!!

Forever Grateful,
AS

BTW... No fence hopping neighbors... lol...
Nothing compares to sunlight for a nice photograph.
