Guys
Important question.... I came home today, one of the shrooms was well opened (havent been home for couple days) and had black "soot" like dust on the top of the cap, on the stem and over the cake a little bit too. I'm really hoping its just the spores but can anyone confirm? I don't wanna infect anything else if its some contam!
Cheers in advance
peace

I just found this thread... missed it somehow before.
I gotta compliment you on your ingenuity! Those cakes look damn healthy!
Here's to your next flush!
Have you sampled the fruits of your labor yet?

indeedo

when the veil breaks and the cap matures, spores 'drop' from the gills
but since spores are microscopic, the air picks them up and swirls them around
this is one of the reasons why we print in a still-air environment

be well

why, have you thought of printing any caps?
if looking for info please refer to the archlves, 1st "/\" in my sig and scroll down to 'printing'

this will start you on the road to self sufficiency, and its great experience to have

another thing you can do to carry-on the genes is to 'clone' a nice cluster of musrooms
by utilizing a small piece of inner stem tissue in a liquid culture (easy) or on agar(advanced)

Thanks everyone for your support!

The cake that never gave me any caps has sprung to life after the dunk - the only one so far (other than the odd one or two on the others). All the places where picking occured has nicely grown back with mycellium so i'm pleased with that (no contam!). I've heard the cakes can take about a week to start pinning again, is that what I'm looking at do you think?

Haven't sampled any yet, but will be tonight with a couple of mates. From the first flush I got about 8 grams dry that is worth taking -- I would've had more than double that but the shrooms that I picked first actually FERMENTED inside an airtight jar after being next to a PC fan for 2 days -- a couple of them weren't -fully- dried and even the silica gel didn't suck up the moisture - so they were throw aways... very unfortunate!

Very interested on doing some prints or clones - not sure which way I'll go about it, but i've still got some time to do it... I just wanna try them out first, as you'd all have to agree with! :D

Thanks again guys. I've posted some pics of the current moment.

Be safe
Peace

Peace

next time place them on a piece of paper with a fan blowing on them out of direct sunlight

until they are BONE DRY, and the stems can crack in half, before storing

haste makes waste :(

have a great time on yer journey later!

if ya have any last-minute questions, feel free to fire away

you are going to have a great time man!

be well :)

it varies but 3-6 days is about average after a dunk

Hey guys,
Had 2.5g of dried shrooms.. didn't feel much at all.. very mild high..
My mate who weights easily 20kgs more than myself was tripping quite nicely he said from about the same or a little less.
Next time i'll up the dose by about 1-2g I think.
peace

an eigth on an empty, but not hungry stomach will do ya (3.5 grams)
if no effects in an hour eat another gram

your tolerance is high
and i don't believe bodyweight has anything to do with it...
his brain chemisty is just different different than yours...

its also to be noted that potency can, and does vary from specimen to specimen,

try from a different cake.

be well

Thanks cap, i'll have to try from the second flush, i'm looking forward to it.
My friend said its one of the best feelings he has ever experienced, outside in the dark was amazing he said.. Made me feel jealous that he got it and I didn't!
Peace dude!

Last night I picked most of the shrooms from the cake that didn't pin the first flush (They grew so fast - after coming home from work and they had all dropped spores!), all were substantially bigger than from the first too.
Got almost 70g wet and am going to try them out at the end of the week - Hopefully they will be a little stronger and I'll take around 3.5g (thx Cap).
Anyways enjoy the pics.
Peace
