i bought some little mason jar brf jars and inoculated them with Guadalajara, golden teacher, and john allen. only the guads and teachers made it through incubating but i ripped off bits of the john allen mycylium that wasnt contaminated and through that in a grow bag and shook it up and there has been more growth since. i put the guads in a small bread pan and layered it kowanite compost and spawn, there was about two layers of compost and three of spawn, i didd the same with the teachers in a tub twice the size. its been about four days since i broke up the cakes and put aluminum foil over the containers and set them in a dark high up place where it will stay warm and cozy and ive already seen mycelyium poking up through the dirts. its first succesful growth of any kind after a plant-k kit that cost 150$, i failed, i bought at least 4 grain bags and injected them and they all failed. so i mpretty glad about seeing myclium, i love its way of life anf im happy i was able to cultivate mushrooms. i will post pics and show what the set up looks like

Good you didnt give up/

 

Patience is key to this hobby.

 

Keep them misted and fan some air a couple of times a day. Clean water to mist, clean air to fan.

 

Welcome to the site as well!!

The tray in the second pic in post #5 looks kind of wet.  Just keep an eye on that one.

 

The tub you have the small tray in--what are you doing to boost humidity?  That tray is way too small to create a decent micro-climate in there.

 

And I see you lined your tray with aluminum foil.  Mycelium will eat through it eventually.  I wouldn't mess with it now, but for future reference.

can i turn the substrate over and fruit outside of the box as a cake or should i just leave it there. if all goes to worse i have a :meditate:monster truck tire oustide filled with aged horse manure and black wood mulch on the top. All failed experiments go into that pup and hopefully something pops up. :tinfoil: :deadhorse: :weedpoke: :smoking-hookah: :thumbs_up2: loving these smileys

You have more manure aside from that? If not maybe bury your failed projects somewhere else and use that horse "gold" for future bulk projects! Just this cat's .02 cents. Welcome aboard btw.

 

:tinfoil:  is my favorite

Good point on the hpoo, unless you have access to plenty.

You can fruit the sub either way. Most folks like to fruit from containers to focus most of the fruiting on the surface of the sub.

If you still can, please remove that photo of yourself asap.

 

In any case a mod will do it as soon as one sees it.

 

Edit: And while you're at it, delete what you wrote in the "what's on your mind?" box since that's a major forum no-no.
