Some Invitro Falbino Cakes
Posted 08 March 2014 - 02:01 PM
The first pic is just a pretty cake, even after I picked some aborts and handled it roughly.
The second pic really illustrates the variance in Falbino fruit pigmentation. It is all over the map. Note the two larger fruits, and they don't even look like they should be on the same cake.

Questions regarding harvesting cakes:
Do u pick the entire cake clean of anything that grew or was growing?
After the dunk can u cut away any funky looking tissue? How do u clean up the cake prior to fruiting again?

I have dunked the previously harvested cakes and returned them for another flush. I
have also taken some prints for future endeavors (learn to print efficiently; it is a key to the hobby). I can usually get at least 3 or 4 flushes before the mycelium begins to die. The harvests will vary, but I will yield at least a dry ounce per flush. So that is a quarter pound of shrooms, which should get me through a Sunday afternoon.
Thanks to all the good folks who participated in this thread. Good vibes on all your projects.

Sorry if I confused anybody.

Just wish one of our vendors carried the spores.

I think these containers are a viable option for some other exotics, too, as TCO mentioned, and I have a couple experiments upcoming.
But I have run these containers with at least a dozen different strains of cubensis, and all fruited nicely. I have been using the containers for several years, so it's tried and true.
And it works in a very small space, no doubt. In this hobby, you gotta love stealth.

When harvesting do you clean all of the above mentioned, or just the mature fruits and aborts. For instance on a cake I have counted over 100 pins, dozens of aborts, and 7-12 fruiting bodies. The aborts turn black but pins and knots stay white? I'm confused because I read to leave pins and knots... Thanks for any further clarification.

If you can dunk the cake without knocking off the small pins, you can leave those be. Remove mature fruits and aborts. Not damaging or removing small pins is sometimes difficult, though. If you picked the cake clean, another complete flush would occur. Just handle the cake gently.

as far as the plastic containers go I feel when you strip everything away and have a basic method, then you can experiment and test variables. this form of experimenting can debunk old myths and also break new ground. in an environment where there are other variables present experiments will not hold as much value.

This strain looks great, definitely something I'd like to try one day. Luv the pics.

Falbinos are a nice strain. Pretty potent and some big fruits.
Yes, this method will allow you to experiment with different variables and species. I am going to give psilocybe semperviva a run on these in the near future. It should work fairly well, except I will have to tend casing layers and provide a little extra FAE.
And Old DaVinci knew a thing or two. I bet he had a couple FCs somewhere in his art room, lol.

My version of your deli container set up.
I will try out the next brf cake that comes my way
Bottom is a 2 cup round
Top is a 4 cup tall round
Slit the thread ring in the tall container in 4 spots so that it will slide down over the bottom containers thread ring and hold in place.
Should work well in theory....
And this little tub
will hold 6 of these pods pretty snugly for a fairly discrete set up for a 1/2 dozen cakes.
Bet one could get a fat little personal continual harvest of 3 cakes every 2 week or 6 cakes every 4 week harvest and replace type rotation.

since its PP5 I wonder if you could noc up the pint with some pans using poop cakes, case and cap with the quart and fruit. the only problem I see is standing water. what could you use as a drip shield?

Wolf, you could take half-pint poo cakes and fruit them in the quarts. You would need to provide a few air exchanges here and there, but the quarts would function well as a fruiting chamber.

Forget about complicated systems that require plugs, and monitors and such. Especially when your learning like me. If after you try u wish to invest more time with a humidifier and fruiting chamber then go ahead! Set up a Martha if you want to!
quart jars/containers for cakes and grow bags from outgrow for bulk. It's effienct, cheep and gets you where you want to be!
