four qts of WBS were spawned to a pasteurized gallon bag of home-made worm poo/hay compost in two turkey baking trays. After a few days of colonization a coir casing was applied. Pins showed up in about a week and are now about four days old.

More pics to come but my phone's bluetooth is giving me problems.

this morning two caps on one of the trays opened and they weighed in at 50 grams fresh :loveeyes:. Hopefully those other pins will follow.

This is a first attempt at spawning and wanted to see what the clone took to best so there is another tray of WBS>>Coir and two 10 gal totes of WBS>>Timothy hay/Coir.

I hear people have problems with the hay contaminating but no problems so far.

Hey, i think you have a blue thumb too..:thumbup:
It does look like they could use a bit more fresh air though..

Hay as a sub can be pretty reliable if plenty o'spawn is used and it's not loaded with seeds...

Thanks guys!
FAE has increased now that I'm back in town. Also they were getting light at weird angles causing them to grow every different way. The casing not shown in the pic actually has a much better pinset but i can't get my phone to transfer the pics to my comp.

i'll keep you guys posted.

Nice! The lighter for scale is a good addition to your pics.

Small caps might indicate lack of FAE.
I'm sure someone will have a nice trip on them :amazed:

total dry weight for the first flush was a little over two dry oz. No pics for now.

has anyone had problems with corroding of these types of aluminum pans? I noticed tiny holes wearing away on the sides of the pans visible in pic 1 of post 7. The bottoms were the most corroded and the cakes bottoms were hard and black. Could this be from the metabolic wastes reacting with the aluminum? I'm definitely using plastic next time.


The two 10 gal totes (WBS>>Timothy Hay/Coir) are starting to pin. FAE has been increased to 6-8 times a day but the small caps may be coming from a poorly chose clone.

Myc eats tinfoil...so thats why you are seeing holes in the pans...

here is a pic of the newest fruit from a WBS>>Coir/timothy hay. 3 qts were spawned to about 6-inches of substrate in a 10 gal tote.

This thing is HUGE! 112grams fresh.

here are a few pics of the setup. the tub was made from the same clone LC in the first pic. The fruit has started drying and is bluing nicely. I had my doubts about Timothy Hay at first but it has put out some nice flushes.


The last pic is the newest batch of jars nearing 100% colonization which i plan to spawn to either straw/coir or horse poo if i can find some soon. :weedpoke:

this tub was neglected after that first biggun and all the aborts were picked, and when checked on, the tub was very dry. the caps still growing were cracked on the top so water was added to the substrate. The result...exploding stems!

The bottom of the stem was really skinny and dense but once the extra water was added the top segments expanded and became hollow and even splitting. these caps are going to be left to open so hopefully a few decent prints can be taken.

to be honest i have no idea what strain. Its a cube strain from a sponsor. The original fruit was rose combed from the bleach in the misting water and was cloned cuz it looked interesting.

An inner tissue sample was transferred to a Karo LC and then used to knock up three agar LC solutions. 15 qts of WBS were knocked up and run through different subs just for kicks.

This last tub from that batch of WBS was made of pasteurized Timothy Hay from wally world and Coir. It has thrown out some of the weirdest looking fruits that bruise DEEP blue and are very dense.
