This is the one from above with the smaller first flush. This flush is the second, and the basket was dunked after the first.

The one in the last post above has been dunked again and is ready for Flush #3.
This is the second flush of the other one.

Dunking seems to work nice with these.

The biological manipulation is a fun hobby. The quest for knowledge is never-ending. "We know where we're going and we know where we're from. We're leaving Babylon, going to our Father's land" -- Open to interpretation, of course. But you get the main idea.

very impressive! where was this stored at throughout growth? i mean, where would one put this during colonization, and then where to fruit?

Re: Spawn-- With Wild Bird Seed, it takes 3-4 quarts. With popcorn, more like 5 quarts.

The baskets just set on a shelf in a closet during colonization. For the first flush, they were in front of a window, just getting the ambient light through the closed blinds. For the second flush, I left them in the closet and turned the light on while I was at work ( a little more stealth). I also had them elevated on a chair or colonizing monotub and had a HEPA fan setting on the floor below.

Make sure to check out visions' laundry basket tek in the archives, if you haven't already. Lots of good info in there. I think the overall yield will be consistent with what visions got, although he got it all in one flush.

Ya I have, pretty interesting stuff. One final question though .... when letting it colonize the straw do you have it in the dark, or just out in normal lighting conditions??

Im curious if this open air technique could be applied to monotubs by simply butting the straw mixture in a tub and leaving it out in the open to colonize and fruit, maybe with a bag loosely over it to hold in moisture.

My friend doesn't really worry about the lighting while colonizing. Just sets them in a closet to be out of the way. Ultimately, it is dark in the middle of the basket.

Also, keep in mind, that the colonization isn't really open-air in this case. The baskets are wrapped with plastic wrap (with holes poked every couple of sq. inches).

then during fruiting, the clear trash bag is draped loosely over the basket. My friend has found that it is important to have a fan or hepa going near the baskets to keep just enough fresh air circulating into the trash bags.

Re: tubs. My friend has fruited trays using clear trash bags. Again, see the note above about having a fan and the bag loosely draped. Also, my friend kind of "shakes" the clear plastic every chance he gets to encourage air. He also takes off the plastic completely once a day, for examination, and air exchange.

Yes. Both the green/blue baskets were dunked for 18-24 hrs. prior to the second flush. The have been dunked again and are pinning for the third flush. See post 28 above.
