nice work.
the cakes looks dry, consider dunk after the flush.


... the photo isn't clear enough I guess, but the cakes are well hydrated. After harvesting a five to six hour dunk is performed, which some suggest is potentially excessive, or at a minuimum unnecessary.

The fruiting chamber has a high RH as you can see the condensation on the sides of the FC.

Been difficult to determine when exactly the fruiting cycles are ending. Generally, thus far the cakes are being removed after the first two largest stipes break veil. The intent being to prevent spores from spraying into the FC. Not sure if this is solid thinking, but I speculated that spores laying on the perlite might invite contaminants??

~~~ As for other comments, "experienced travellers" handled the dose, riding the wave. If one were to encourage a first time journey for a friend, they would act as a guide down the rabbit hole :space:

I harvested the fruits on the two cakes and they were, in fact, in need of hydration.

Man you're good!!

In fact, I eliminated the foil they were sitting on and placed plastic grating in the FC. Much to my surprise the Perlite had dryed significantly, as well.

Good call... Thnx!

Sagiboy... I think they're both stoned and looking at you.

Btw... are those dance moves from Pulp Fiction or is that the Macarena?

I had to add this in... It falls under the lessons learned theme.

I had worked without temperature monitoring when doing the first mycobags. On a thread somewhere I read about the importance of temp. monitoring (I was winging it for the most part by monitoring the area but not the interior of the noc-box). This was a poor choice.

In a second run temps. were just checked using a new set-up (a small lead/sensor connected to a digtal monitor outside the box) and the internal temp. was 91°! Not in the killing range, but far more than the recommended 84° - 86°.

Anyway... the point being for all other noobs, spend the money on a decent temp. / hygrometer device. You owe it to our mushy friends (and you ultimately are the winner)!
