so these look a little meatier than the ones from the castings and the verm

so we shall se how much the straw helps soon enough

the green box, merm gave me the idea, is a quarentine, in another room of the house , i got micropore tape, which....

really funny thing about micropore tape is that i went crazy trying to find the shit but no package in walgreens or any other chain store had anything that was called micropore tape

but then i started to read the back the other day , and theres this thing on the back of the package that says the hospital name for this tape is called surgical micropore tape, but at the store

look fer soft paper tape its the same thing hehehehehehehehehe

anyways back to the quarantine box, well i saw the tiniest speck of green on this baby sooooo what i did was i isolated it, and i got a diluted bleach solution and moistened a q tip and pressed it on the trich and the surrounding areas, and that was like four days ago,

still no trich !!!!!, now theres this little fuzz like stuff growing up the stipe, maybe bacterial infection, who knows,

i fan everything at least four time a day

Looks like you are starting to get that shit dialed in!

Nice pinset.

Could you explain what you mean by the bleachy water dunk. I did a search, but couldn't find anything specific.

Your question provides its own answer ... see the glowing word dunk ? Click it and follow the links.

There is a wealth of dunking info there.

i really think you need some damp perlite in there at the bottom of that terrarium. i think lightly misting the sides will help as well.

you can get some chicken wire. it can elevate those cakes a little bit. although sometimes caseroles can work for that as well. but then you can't get as good of a double ended casing tek.

if your setting some of those casings that kinda just stalled a bit and fruiting from both sides. try adding a sterile damp verm layer underneath the entire casing substrate. this will help out and maybe boost those guys a bit. hope that helps. looks to me like your drying out a bit. you just need to up your relative humidity about 15-20% and i think you will get a bigger yield.

that last pic looks the healthiest of all. if you find the coir drying out too much by becoming lighter in color. try misting it lightly. not all at once. but just lightly, then wait a few hours and do it again. if its not dry. then just up the rh by adding perlite and misting the sides. if your pumping air into this chamber. your airflow is too high and your sacrificing yield by drying out your casing too much. so, if thats the case. either a) put your air exchange on a timer for 15 mins every two hours or b) lower fan speed or use something with less force. you really don't need tons of air exchange at all times. you need a balance of airflow and humidity to make that perfect environment.

I'm no expert by any stretch but the casing looks a bit thick in the first pic second post. That might explain the limited fruiting.

ok about the cake care, i do mist,

but generally i find that having the tropicaire with a heat pad under it, on 24 seven, with 10 fae exchanges with my electric fan a day

and i can screw the perlite, IF , i have two or more trays in there,

the reason why those trays are outta the box, is cause i made em a little two wet, and i didnt put like a layer of verm or something on the bottom


to absorb the pooling water so like four of my trays got trich

and had to be thrown away so i took all the trays outta the boxes to be safe, thats when i noticed the trich on the bottom of the others

another case, the one in the green box, had trich and wet bubble, and i was gonna throw it out

but i wiped the infected area with bleach

and after the bleach dunk

the pic of the really healthy casing is the same one in the green tub

so they woulda never really dried out, i just put em in my cupboard and let them be, and i still managed to pull a quarter

so basically that casing in the last pic shoulda been thrown out,

but i saved it and used the bleach dunk and no nothing

just big ass healthy shrooms hehehehehehee


now about the casing layer, with the prs, they are sooo agressive, you might have to patch your tray four times before they start to pin, and you could still get overlay, so instead of adding on thick layer, i slowly add a bunch of "sprinkle" layers, and since ive been doing that ive had greater results with the prs,

once they overlay, they get water droplets, BOOM , trich heaven hehehe

christ wait till you see the other block tommorow im gonna pick most of em

theres a super monster

i was wondering when selecting a canidate to use for an isolate, what characteristics must one look for to have that entire tray filled with shrooms effect?

cause im thinking if you isolate a huge one, when you use that isolate, your gonna get one big shroom on your tray thats all

and when you isolate a shroom from a big cluster, on the next tray you will get just one cluster, like the one you cloned

im sure this is wrong,

but i know from canna gene tampering, its harder to spot preferable traits in males

so i was wondering, to help select the ideal canidat for an isolate, would i need like a microscope or some type of measuring instrument

or i just clone the pretiest one

a method to the madness please hehehe

wowee

one thing about prs, is that i heard they are hard to fruit,

well once they do though they become hemmroids and they never go away,

jezus, ten days after the dunk, i have another half z cracker dry, now thats fast as fuck for a flush at least with what ive worked with

well come to think of it all ive worked with is b+ and prs and i just started citiwans so im just talking out my ass heheheheheheheh

wow they keep getting bigger, i hope you likee hehehe

PRs can be bitchy to get going, but they tend to be very nice to you once they start fruiting.

When choosing an isolate, I always go for the biggest, most solid stem (generally from the first flush). Simply because those are easiest to clone...
