:love:

I should check my old threads more often!

So this was my first oyster grow and they are a very forgiving strain. They colonize grain super fast, are contam resistant and no FC is required. That's right! No fruiting chamber required! I use Lazlo's newspaper grocery bag tek (link in the first post) and then i just set the bags right on my dining room table. After full colonization occurs, i just loosen the tops of the bags and fan with a paper plate every once in a while. I used to cut little holes all over the bag, (oysters require massive amounts of FAE) but i find that just loosening the tied bag handles & fanning encourages a massive top cluster without having to worry about side pinning. Plus, when you go to dunk you can just fill up the grocery bag from the top and there's no leaking out of other holes cut in the bag.

BTW, oysters like direct misting, unlike cubes. So proper hydration is super easy, just spritze them whenever you happen to walk by. :)

Dude, that tek is GOLDEN! Don't be afraid to make a big huge bag either, really stuff that grocery bag to the top! I had a 3 pound first flush off of one of my blue oyster bags that i was eating for days...

Funny how threads like this one come back to life at the right time. I just made a new bag of Blues tonight. I like your modification of not cutting holes, gonna try it that way. Also bought a big ass bag of pearl dowels from Sporeworks recently, gonna get them going too. Yum I cant wait :eusa_droo

The blues taste pretty good, but IMO the pearls taste best. I love how the blues look when they grow out though... not a true dark blue but more of a dusky bluish grey.

Yay, pins! :eusa_danc I am enjoying your thread, eats!

actually all my pins are on the top. i just loosened the top b4 i read that you said to do it. just thought it might help. and the bags are sitting in the direction of the air vent. i was thinking it might dry them out. but its far on the other side of the room. all the pins look like they are on the top. one grouping popped out the side and actually made its own hole.

ive misted directly on the pins about 3 times today. and i can see some other bags start to look good. yeah i really want to try the yellow oysters. or golden oysters. they have a really nice color.
