This is very nice to see, I am planning on growing shrooms one day, but I still have much to learn. Thanks for making the topic.

That looks quite easy to grow, easier than marijuana for shure. Is it?

I guess it can certainly be considered easier as there is a marked lack of human input on the grow cycle. You just need different tools (pressure cooker, etc) and the knowledge of how to keep your work area EXCEPTIONALLY sterile which is key in the reduction of contaminated jars..touch wood so far, i have 36 jars on the go and no contaminents:cool: :hello:

you could be produceing so much more for so much less work and I would lose the fogger.

High humidity is yes a pinning trigger, but also so is the top layer of mycelium drying up.

90-95% humidity is optimal for inferior cakes.
70-85% 85 being best for caseings and bulk. Some bulk methods 95% is def exeptable if out cased.

Hey, nice shroom grow :D....

Sorry to stray off topic a bit, but how hard is it to do without the ordered spores? IE: collecting spores from a wild mushroom.... As this is all I have access too, Ill have a squiz and try find out what strain grows round here, but its a rare one, thats for sure...

Good luck with the pinning, hope you get some psilocybin in those babies!!!1

hey, thanks for the input. unfortunatly the only way i have got spores was through mail order and i never had a problem. Look into that, there are a lot of reputable retailers (www.sporelab.com) and remember...its not illegal to buy a spore syringe :)

I think it would be very dangerous to grow from wild spores, as the risk of getting a poisonous mushroom and growing from it is high..and i wouldnt risk it...

Unfortunatly, i cant do casting due to space constraint. if i ever do go bulk, i will definitly go with castings, it looks intersting.

Thanks for the input, Pinning pictures up a little later.
