Hey,
I don't get a chance to use a camera very much, so when i do i like to take pix and show em. :) this first pic is of a bin where nickel sized holes have been put in the sides of the bin. six for the long side and four at the shorter. then tyvek is taped over the holes on the outside. this seems to have helped when i went out of town for a couple days. the cakes looked healthier when i came back since i've done this. the rh doesn't seem to drop either as the sides of the bin have stayed dripping wet without extra misting (misted once when i birthed the cakes) this bin contains 23 cakes.

heres a pic of the cakes inside...

these cakes were birthed about a week ago. these tex pin so damn fast, the bin this one is sitting on was already picked and dunked a day ago. this bin was a bit dry so i added water to the casings slowly over a three day period and now are back up to par. :) the flush is kinda spread out amongst the cakes... some cakes are just starting to pin...
pins.JPG
while some are almost ready to be picked. right now there are three bins in a closet with a small desk fan blowing down on them on low 24/7.

here are just some tex shots. :)

this shot gives an example of the cakes flushing cyles being off of one another.. the far cake is just starting to pin.

the other bin in the closet is an experiment with a corn "casing" (but not really) with a verm rez effect. i just added one handful of really moist (almost wet) verm. to each quart of corn and laid that out in a bin with similar holes and tyvek to the first pic i posted, except i put four large holes in the top press n seal "lid"...
cornbinfirst.JPG
this allows for nice gas exchange while i'm away. I also air out these bins twice a day when i am around. As you can see here, I split the bin in two halves. i felt better about having two casings instead of one big one. i think this will pay off. i wanted to keep it really simple so i didn't case it. i've tried casing rez'd corn before with bad results so i left that out to allow for better gas exchange from within the sub. the pinning doesn't seem to be affected very much... it's knotting up like crazy. pins are showing up exponentially. i test how dry the sub is by just taking a kernel of corn off the top and pinching it between my two fingers. if it mooshes easily then the kernals underneathe that are nice and hydrated.. will definately keep it updated. :)

Nice work, man! Heart-o-simplicity there. I'm looking forward to your shots of those subs exploding...

Pretty cakes, too.

ok, here are some updates... the first pic is the cake bin i posted.. i picked a little over a dry oz. from this bin already (you can tell where there is bare cakes) it's coming along nicely as always. :) ....
justbin.JPG
heres a pic of the third bin that is starting it's second flush... notice the first pins coming in. :) !!
secondflush.JPG
ok, this is where i get really excited.. i finally came up with a way to do whole kernal corn in bins without an extravegant humidity setup.. this was possible (for me, mind you) i think because of the 1. verm. rez 2. splitting the sub in half and 3. no casing. all the other times i cased and they went south. and anytime i did no casing without any type of verm. rez, i had extremely poor pinsets. i think that the verm. rez was just rough enough to promote nice pinning. without the casing layer i was also able to pick off a kernal here and there to see how well the sub was hydrated.. this is what i did for misting and airing out. first i laid the corn (with verm. rez) out and misted the walls and sub itself, then let that sit for two days without airing out to let it recolonize. then i just aired it out twice a day until knots appeared.. once the first pins came, i misted VERY lightly. four pumps of very fine mist, one in each quadrant of the corn. this rejuvinated the sub for pinning.. remember there is a fan blowing on these bins from above 24/7 also. this along with the tyvek covered holes in the sides of the bin made for nice air exchange.. :) basically i let it sit, airing it out everyday until pins formed, then misted lightly as needed....

and just for fun... here is the three bins together. :) thanks for looking at my progress. :)

thanks. :) can hardly wait til they open up... it's going to be pretty. :) the damn thing is still pinning too. lol most of the pins are up but i think that by the time they open the holes will be filled in with half mature pins.

ok here are the last updated photos. :) had to get em before the camera was taken back.
 

bin1.JPG bin2.JPG bin3.JPG

no pj, this is a new iso. and not really an iso. i used the faht jar but i didn't try and get an iso.. i just nocc'd it up... didn't do the one drop thing. so there were probably 3 or 4 substrains.. tex do well either way. :) but i have been using the same poke a print for a very long time.. since i posted on how i made em actually.. so that one print has lasted me... shit.. i don't know.. over two maybe three years. :) thanks for the compliments all. :)

mycojay,
yeah those are holes of similar design.. just smaller... a little smaller than a dime sized. they were originally put there for the monotub design i had where there was a perlite layer under the sub. they were suppose to allow air exchange to the perlite level.. but i ditched that idea. now they are just there. i think they definately allow some air exchange at that level but not very much. but hey, didn't really hurt em either. :)

i would also like to point out that this is not a new idea... HF originally taught us you can do a rez effect with popcorn here... http://mycotopia.net...html?1090561374

the only thing that i did different was no casing layer.. but apparently you don't need one. :) damn, i miss HF... good dooder. :)
