Update. 1/2 of the jars are done. Some of the jars are lagin behind the rest, but Id say about 5 more days and they should be done! I was going to brith these as cakes but Ive decided to do a tub. Im going to break up the cakes and spawn to staw and worm casings. My husband told me to do cakes because he said Im still a newbie. I told him I want to go strong just like him and do a mono tub. So here we goooooo!

Getting ready to spawn to bulk. We both work a lot and need to find some time to be together. Id do this myself but this grow is all hers and Im not steping on any toes. Btw I just threw out another jar (eq). Only 1 eq jar left. Also 1 nepal chitwan jar that dont look good. So all in all total 3 jars went bad. So far 22 jars of pesa are ready to go.

I'm with you there smurfette all the way. I was a noob and now I'm gonna go bulk myself thanks to the help from the community and my old man irishlion. I have confidence just like you and some of the other women here on topia. Sounds great!:eusa_clap:heart:

Smurfette...ette, right? Or is it only the hubby that calls you that? I'm new here and rather blown away by all the skillful growers. I've only got three grows under my belt...BRF cakes with Brazilian. That strain has fruited OK for me, but in the jars, it doesn't show the Rhizo growth that your Pesa jars did. Those were most impressive. Sorry you lost a few to contamination...but you have plenty left.

Looking forward to seeing your transition from cakes to tub. That's probably going to be my next grow so I'm at the edge of my seat! Nicely done...
Peace,
Dee

So I got the shit started today... literaly! Out of the 21 pesa cake that were done I put 13 of them in this bulk tub. The other 8 are in fridge dunking now and will birth like regular pf tek with dec. This was a lot of work! Im very excited about getting this done and cant wait to see my first pinners. When I see my first pins Ill post some more pics.
As for the tub prep. I used pasturized hpoo and straw and spawn was brf. 13 brf cakes were broken up and layered inbetween straw/hpoo mix.
My hubby mushhut also started 2 tubs today as well same mix except his spawn was colonized rye. He did 2 differant strains. Well here are some pics of the process and 2 pics of a very rizo cake before crumbling.

This was a nice grow for me beacuse I got to just sit back, take pics and let sombody else do all the work. Lol. I got to repost that last pic that didnt show up. There were a lot more jars that looked like this but I only had time to only snap 2pics because the wife was saying "hurry up i just want to get this done". She now sees how much work goes into growing these guyes.

Well the pic did it again dont know why I can post that pic.

Hi Smurfette,
That looked like a bit of work. So you just crumbled the cakes? I heard that a cheese grater gets them broken up too.

I'm confused about that mycelium shot in the jar...there wasn't any dry perlite on top. Is that the way you do cakes? And why, If I may ask? Just trying to learn.

Peace,
Dee

PS: Nice toes...

Yea, there is no need for dry verm layer with the way my hubby makes the jar lids. sylicone injection ports and tyvek syliconed (2 layers thick) to the top. The tyvek we use is house wrap. Never any need for a dry layer of verm. Heres some pics of the jar lids.

OK, ette, I understand now. Just never seen cakes done that way. Though I have heard of people using cakes with no dry perlite for making isolates. Just drop a chunk of sroom on top of the cake and let it grow.

So you can also use the same lids for liquid culture too I'd assume. I'll have to look into that because my first LC attempt grew out a whole bunch of dark little floaters...had to trash it. Thanks for the info and best wishes on your bulk.
Peace,
Dee
