Second round of this attempt as you know. Northspore offers manure for substrate, this is what I need? The boomr bag?
I am mostly certain this what I needed from last time, I’m verifying. I’m trying to be successful the second time. lol.
Thanks for being patient.
Glad you are facing the challenge and hope you do well. I use Boomr Bags. They do have pasteurized manure in the Boomr Bags. Be sure to have at least a 50/50 spawn to bulk ratio.
So I am the type of person that learns by doing. And I have heard of doing break and shake of your jars. Well I seem to remember @MidwestGuy saying that he rarely gets contamination but the times he did it was from shaking the jar. So after reading that I have been cautious about shaking my jar. Well I wanted to see what happened. This jar was growing pretty slow so I decided to give it a shake and I may of just got lucky.
This is the back side the other side is done. And it’s growing really well now
This is a Madagascar strain and the mycelium it’s very aggressive. Done in maybe 5 weeks
Second I finally got past the fear lol and took mushrooms over the weekend and had a good ole time lol. Next time I’ll take more I might of took a little over a gram. Was fun and now I’m not so scared to take them . Lol
I always shake my jars or bags. One thing that I have found makes a difference is tapping the jar for about 30 seconds after to re-compact the grains. I found when there were ‘gaps’, the myc isn’t able to jump across and would stall the jar. When you stall the jar, you risk slowing down the growth to the point that possibly could allow contamination.
Yeah still nothing not even so much as an email confirming my cash made it there really bummed out!! This was my 3rd order from them never had any issues on the previous 2 but to not even have them tell me they didn’t receive the cash? That’s just shitty business practices for sure. So to all fellow mushy community members buyer be ware. Mushroom dot com has let me down for sure.
That is a huge shame, who you gonna go with next?
lol. I took my 0.5g microdose this morning and zzziiinnnggg I was off an hour later. No visuals, but definitely a buzz. I think it was because the microdose was a cap and no stems.
Not sure yet have to do a little homework and find out what strain I want to try
I had good luck with ShamanMushrooms.
@first I really like reliable spore dot com they have a great 4 mss for 49.99 that’s like 12.5 per syringe
started b+ plus for the first time and after doing the chamber, found some grains got left in a jar and formed a pretty big network. going to pluck them out and put them in agar plates, see how they do.
Looks fun. Keep us posted.
Loving that pic! The will to survive is strong in that bunch.
Used my homemade flowhood (finally). only did 2 plates for right now, see if this thing actually keeps out contaminants. ended up grabbing more of the mycelium than i intended, pull one little thing and the whole rope came will see how these do. trying to teach my friends to grow for their own supplies, and if i can give em some good plates to play with, more fun all around
That’s what it’s all about
