I thought someone would say that...
No it's the shadow of the water reservoir next to it.

I like the smaller trays too. Do you use nutes in the casing layer for cubes? Since these grow so quick, contamination prolly isnt a big issue i bet. I can't wait to see your pin porn :amazed:

I like your bubbler setup too, its extremely similar to what I use... I might have to try using those tupperware type resevoirs... those are tight!!! Do you run it on a timer?

Very nice log!!

Thanks..!

I use the same casing material with my cubies...
verm peat/compost/coir and some other stuff,premade from the garden center.
Sometimes I use cactus soil to,but this work fine.
But I have to say,I lower the amount of nutes in the cubie casings.

The bubbler isn't on a timer...it works 24 hours a day.
Easy setup..and it works great.

I agree... the setup regulates the humidity and FAE extremely well.

I do mine a bit differently though... I have my reservoirs outside of the terrariums. Exact same concept and same equipment.

Ahah! Makes perfect sense.... I knew there had to be a reason :) I must try this species, as it seems like i wouldn't have to change my technique all that much. Thanks for enlightening me. :bow:

Experiment failed...

I got only 1 gram dry ,from the two trays,before it contaminated...
Looks like this strain doesn't like overlay !
The other two trays (see picture) are doing better,but the shrooms are small and few.
I will give it a dunk after I harvest the first flush.

I made new spawn jars ,and will do this experiment again,but will only post results,when there is some improvement compared to this one.

Great pics as always SC. Love to see those Pan grows even if they "fail".

Thanks.

Yearh, very nice pics indeed. The mushroom shadows are pure art!

All these mushrooms only weigh about 1 gram dried? That's amazing. I'd have thought there would be at least a few grams.. Definitely some small and light creatures. Well, hope you have better luck with the next run!!

No,sorry...the mushrooms from the failed trays (only pictured in the first few pics) with the overlay ,gave me only one gram of shrooms...

The trays on the last picture has to be harvested yet,and I think that flush will give me aboud 5 grams dry.

hey space :) can you explain more about your 2 casing layers on that particular tray? at which point is each casing layer applied? and why do you use 2 casing layers instead of just 1?

That was just an experiment.
Two trays got overlayed,so I decided to ad another casing layer to one of the overlayed trays..,just as an experiment....
Both trays didn't do well.

Sorry it is a little confusing,with my typing style... :o

no problem space - it wasn't your typing, it was just a method i'd never heard of before! :)

so you attempted to alleviate the overlay by application of a second casing layer, and found this to not be helpful. you also found that the overlaid tray with one casing layer didn't perform well. is there anything else you can try to fix the overlay? does scraping the overlaid surfaces help induce pinning, like it can for cubes? or, are you kinda screwed once you get the overlay, i.e. there's no way to fix it?

I don't think scraping will help,..I think it's more a moister problem.
But maybe I should give it a try sometime..never tried scraping neither with cubies.

Great info and pics as usual Space! I use the pancake mix in bags. Because the pans are less resistant to contams than the cubes I dont spawn them to anything.
Just colonize, open bags and put in trays like yours. Skipping the spawning to bulk step seems to work well for me.

I am not talking shit, but I think the average joe like me can get just as much crumbling the cakes and casing them than we can spawning them to bulk. The race against the contams with pans is crucial ime.

If you do any further experimenting, I would love to see a bag of pancake mix crumbled and cased with cactus soil vs. cake to bulk.
