Last night I tried some more shrooms with a friend. Had about 3.5-4 grams dried and I finally felt the effects. Unlike my mate, it built up very gradually, where as as soon as his hit it was very obvious. Was still a mild high but felt pretty cool.. But next time i'm definetally going to up the dose to expereience a proper trip.

I have a few more shrooms on the way, looking very fat. I'll post some pics up in a couple of days when they're ready to pick.

peace

hmmm you sure they're cracker dry?
if so, your tolerance is sky-high! :D

happy to hear things are going well,

and hope you catch a good trip next time..

go for the quarter ounce in one dose if you have to! :amazed:

1/4-1/2 ounce wont kill you--even if your tolerance was low..

don't forget set and setting have a lot to do with it.

here's hopin third times a charm!
be well

it's not all that uncommon for some few to need 4-5 g dry
or even more
to trip hard,
tolerance between people varies almost as much
as potency between shrooms.
it even varies from day to day, it seems to me.
how much and how recently you've eaten,
other drugs ingested, etc.
many factors in play all at once.
but in the end
it's better to dose low than to freak out.

we've had members here that stated they needed at least 5,
i believe that rodger was one of them, claiming to often eat 8-9 g
for a decent trip.
tolerance again in play.
if one shrooms often
there are two kinds of tolerance, kinda like memory,
a short term tolerance of about 4-5 days,
pretty severe but fades fast.
but there's a long term tolerance too
that takes months to fully subside.

Its strange though, I probably only took a gram more than last time - and last time was very very mild effect and this time i could definetally feel it. The only "visuals" i got was looking at the venetian blinds which looked as though they were warping slightly.
I think the setting also had something to do with it.. There was about 10 people -- only one other did shrooms with me, the rest were drinking and smoking.. It wasn't dark and we were watching a movie together - I guess that definetally stops you from tripping because you have something to concentrate on.

Well its time again for another update...
The cakes are starting to pin again - but one stood out to me as the most promising..... I've counted at least 30 pins beginning to grow - and to add to that - there are huge amounts of tiny bumps that look like they will pin too.... Looking quite good for my 2nd flush!
I'll post some photos when they're further matured.
Peace

Got some pics finally..... growth is still outstanding, very pleased..
Humidity in there is perfect from the looks of it.
Temps have been around 19-20 degrees C, which is a little low from what i've read, but the shrooms don't seem to mind at all..!
Feel free to comment... always helps :)
Anyway, enjoy.
peace

:eusa_clap BRAVO!

looks like yer doin everything right

how are you humidifying?

i suggest you clone the largest shroom growing in a cluster's inner stem tissue

you will find your results to be more plentiful and more consistant this way.

fabulous grow, keep up the great work :)

As simple as it sounds the best method I have found, to get good tissue to clone, is to use gloves and tear the fungi down the middle lengthwise. Then using a flamed scalpel cut a small piece of tissue from the center of the cap. If you cut it rather than pull it apart, you will drag any nasties that are on the outside of the fungi into the tissue you want to clone. This was the best piece of advise anyone ever gave me. I have cloned a few store bought fungi like this.

Me too... Can eat a good 1/4 (7g) and be able to "handle it". They can "hit" differently too though at times... comes from multispore variation, and environmental stuff.

Thanks for the replies guys.
Is there any cloning technique that is the most popular and/or easiest way? I've really got no expereince in cloining fungi so I have NO idea where to start.
Had a look in those links and people seem to do it differently in every thread.
I've still got a half-syringe left of spores that was unused when I inoculated these cakes, so i'm asuming they'll be just as good performers as this batch now.
Peace!

prepare a liquid culture jar (2 simple teks linked below)
sterilize glovebox
load sterile tools into glovebox (alchohol lamp or Bic Lighter, isopropyl alch. or iodine)
select a nice large, clean lookin mushroom growing in a cluster preferably of 3 or more
keep in mind that you can and should clone more than one mushroom
in case it lacks in potency you have something else to grow that gets you high
also good to have at least a couple spares just in case one or two gets contamination

now you have everything in the glovebox, you have washed up
and suited into the same gear you used to do innoculations in the glovebox,

use roo's tek i quoted in the above post, where he 'tears' the stem open,
and use a sterile new razor blade or scalpel or tweezers to remove a
sterile untouched piece of inner stem tissue,
which you will drop into a pre-prepared Liquid Culture jar
this is a good tek >>http://mycotopia.net...html?1081303707
another easy tek >> http://mycotopia.net...read.php?t=5017
'LC Basics' [tips] >> http://mycotopia.net...read.php?t=8779

disturbing the air as little as possible as you work, open the lid of the LC jar and drop the tissue sample inside
close the jar lid and incubate at <80 degrees Farenheit
add a few pieces of broken glass to the jars if you are pressure cooking them,
this way the sterile glass shards can be used to macerate the tissue when you are ready to draw syringes,
or you could just build a stirplate and let it do the work for you with a lil help from a metal rod :)
build a magnetic stirplate with an old computer fan >> http://mycotopia.net...html?1081303707

hope this helps, let me know if there's anything you don't understand, glad to help

be well

Thanks heaps for the well written post Cap, i'll do an attempt when I can get a few jars together. Btw, sorry I didn't reply before -- in answer to your humidity question -- I keep it up by keeping a constant high level of water in the humidity dome tray -- there are holes in the floor where the cakes are sitting on which is where the water is underneath, and the fluoro light keeps temps up there so that the water can evaporate. Even when the light isn't on (and temps drop to 19 degrees C), the dome has large amounts of condensation -- so i've never needed to mist at all.

Anyways, I've got a rather important question (since it may involve contam).. On the cake that first started pinning on the 2nd flush i've noticed most of the small shrooms have this dark blueish colouring, mostly just under the veil area.. I know that blue is generally associated with bruising, but i'm posting just in case.. I've included a picture to show what it looks like. Just in case i've moved it to the corner of the fruiting chamber away from the other cakes.

The only thing I can come up with is that the little ones have been possibly bruised/disturbed since I pulled out a few of the larger ones around them.

Also, alot of the smaller ones also have lots of fluff, which i'm presuming is excess mycelium growing on the actual shroom.. is that what ya think?

Also posted a positive pic of 2 healthy looking cakes which are pinning nicely.

Cheers in advance

Peace

I'm thinking it may be too long of a dunk and the cake is over saturated... More air changes and a lil less misting. When the substrate is really really really excessively moist I tend to see that type of growth on the bases.
