Just a couple of EQ trays from a clone I took a while back. The trays are 50/50 Horse manure and Wheat Straw in kitty litter trays spawned from BRF cakes. They have a 1 inch thick casing layer that is 50/50 verm/peat with lime added from right PH. Something strange I have noticed about this strain is that It doesnt like being dunked!! Each time I dunk the substrate for a couple of hours the pins start to form and then they abort. I ripped up the substrate of one tray and noticed it was very very wet...it would dripp water when I squeezed it. On the outside though I could see healthy looking mycelium. I dont know It just puzzles me. I guess it was just too wet...I think from now on I will just mist and scrape the casing layer instead of dunk and hopefully I can have more than one flush. Here are some pics of the two pinning trays. I will post some more as they mature.

By the way Do any of you out there dunk your cased bulk substrates or do you just scrape and mist?? Any feed back would be needed as I really want more than one flush with these guys.

Very nice looking pins, man! I scrape with a fork and mist inbetween flushes, but many dunk with great success.

lookin' nice Bob! big substrates, I don't dunk I recase and mist like heck for about 3-4 days after the flush.

Smaller subs of poo I dunk and recase usually. Lately I haven't been casing the poo much.

Looks good man! Unless the substrates very hard after the flush and has lost its ability to soak up water quickly, i'd just recase it with good, moist casing material. After it's been allowed to heal up for a day after the casing layer has been cleaned off from the first flush. If the substrates hard and has started to shrink up and pull away from the sides of the tub or tray, then you'll have to dunk it to force feed it moisture for 12 hours or so.

Here are some updated pics I think they will be ready to harvest by tommorow morning. One of these trays fruited just like I hoped with total surface coverage but the other didnt do so well but I have no complaints.......EQ is a great all round strain. Like DDD says they are the Northern Lights of Cubensis.:greenboun

Yes I have been really impressed with this EQ clone. I have cloned before abut havent resulte like these. All in all this is one I need to preserve for the future. Does anyone know away to store LC Clones(Not Agar) for future uses. I have tries the fridge but Everytime they die or something from the time I store them in the fridge to the time I innoculate new jars they never recover or grow.....Do not work!! Do the airport technique need to be applied to the LC Clone to add fresh filtered air periodically during storage in the fridge. Any advice would be appreciated.

Nice fruits Bob!

My EQ's fell over like that too. Its like they come so close off the top of the sub and casing that they aren't rooted deep enough to hold the weight of the huge caps and stems they put out.

Yours trays and casings look nice and healthy :)

Nice fruits.
I just wanted to add that a possible reason that your trays are "very very wet" after you dunk is that you have a little too much manure. In my experience manure tends to get soggy more than straw.
I would also try and let it drain a little longer.

Thanks. These EQ are very potent I would say compared to the last few I have tried. The last two trays are fixing to flush again and I will post some more pics as they are ready.:eusa_danc

Yeah, I have only started using manure and think I messed it up by over dunking, it got very wet. In future I will weigh my tray before the first fruiting and add water until it is nearly up to that weight again. If your tray is too big to weigh you could weigh your shrooms and maybe add back 90% of their weight as water to the trays.
