Pan "sandoze" Growlog
Posted 05 May 2009 - 12:56 PM
I had one print left 6-8 month old.
So I decided to make one casing tray,so I can have some fresh prints again.
Got some shrooms of this grow,and decided to take new prints,and use them right away,when they are still fresh.
The prints were a little light tho,because it wasn't such a big grow.
I wanted to see how fast fresh spores grow compared to the old print I had...
So when I made some new brf jars for spawn,I used a little more solution per jar(4ml),because there weren't much spores on the print.
The jars collonized in 13 days.. the old(print) ones took aboud 24.
I'm now at day 15 from the time I made the brf jars, and the casing trays are cased and will probably go into the terrarium next day or so...
The substrate of tray one is a little thinner then tray two as an experiment.
So far I'm very happy with the results,and I made some pictures of how everything looks so far...
This growlog will be update every few days or so ! :)
Here some pics...

B.t.w the substrate is made of 50 % poo and 50 % vermiculiet,spawned to one jar per tray.
Spawn to substrate ratio +- 1:2
Casing layer is made of 50% peat/coir/compost and 50 % vermiculiet
Incubation temps are 26 oC / 79 F

Btw nice poo storage bin.

Substrate height is only about 1,5-2,5 cm?

This makes me want to pull out some of my old Pan Sandoze prints and try a run.

Looks good. :-D
Substrate height is only about 1,5-2,5 cm?
Thanks everyone,for the heads up...
Yep,substrate depth is 2,5 cm and 3 cm with the top casing layer.
I've got some heavy overlay,so as a little experiment,I gave one tray an extra casing layer,will see how that works out.
I have got only one more picture,because things slowed down here, because of a cold weather front.
I couldn't get the terrarium above 24oC.
But today the temperature rised again,and the temp. inside the terrarium is an average of 28oC !

looks great man. When you colonize your trays are you leaving them exposed to light?
No ,I kept them in the dark till the top casing layer was about 50% colonized.
Next time however,I will put the casing trays directly in the terrarium,right after I add the top casing layer.
Just to see,if that will do something with the pinset and/or overlay.
...btw. here's a picture from today...
I think I see some primordia on the right tray..
You can clearly see the overlay on that one,..the left one has a second casing layer,but it did look the same as the right tray,before I added the second layer.

It looks like the overlayed trays,aren't doing well.
The tray with one top casing layer,has only a few very tiny shrooms.
I dunked it,but it doesn't hold up water very well,and so far nothing yet.
The tray with the later added second top casing layer,has two bigger and fatter shrooms growing.
it's looks like they grow under the top layer and have there roots in the first added casing layer.
This tray does perform pretty bad aswell.
The two other trays are looking much better,and I make sure I give the casing layers a good spray a couple of times a day,so it's nice and wet.
I think they will show primordia on Sunday...,this is also the day I will probably stop spraying.
I have more hope for the last two trays,..but who knows..,maybe the first two (with the overlay) will give some more shrooms on the second flush,but I have my doubts.

I'm also waiting for pans (cambodgiensis) to break through, but it's going veeery slow. Anyway, I'm keeping a few BRF jars in the fridge for insurance, in case of failure on first try (which I think there is some likelihood of).
BTW, are those the plastic trays you get meat in from the supermarket? I'm using some of those, which can be pc'ed, and they look very similar.

Easy to clean and just the right size for my Terrarium.

That's what I do. I even put casings and cakes in the same terrarium. I add a pretty light (no more than a half inch) casing layer of 50/50 coir and verm once the spawn has run... just enough to cover the the substrate... and then put it directly in the terrarium... I've NEVER had a problem with overlay using this method.... but then again, it may be different for Pans, which I've eaten, but never grown.

Btw my casing layer holds some nutes,but I like it that way,..seems to give it a litlle more pins.
