    Probably about 180 grams dry. Can't recall tub size offhand, but per tub: 2KG grainspawn + 500g coir / 500g vermiculite and some gypsum / ~16 cups water. 3 tubs, two of which produced 2 flushes (could have done a third, but life got in the way), and the final tub is nearing the end of the first...

    I can say it's been a really interesting journey. It's a bit heart wrenching when you've given it your best shot, watched innumerable tutorial videos and read hundreds of guides, etc... and then your damned tub turns bright ****ing green. That said; it's one of those things where you have do...

    Second flush of one of the previous boxes - Less quantity, more quality:

    Ratio is around 10:1.

    Again... Caught it a bit late, so quite a lot of spores (it's incredible how fast they fruit).

    It has actually become a problem. I have a couple of tubs, and it turns out each one produces over a kg. Also, likely to get 3/4 flushes per tub. I am actually feeling uncomfortable with how much I've inadvertently produced (after my initial failures, I went a bit balls-to-the-wall, to have...

    Howdy folks. Well, one tub has produced enough for ~25 verging-on-the heroic doses:

    Thanks. :) I'm obviously taking precautions when posting here - I would not recommend (personally) posting publicly about this sort of stuff if it can be tracked back to your real self (if growing and posting pics, etc).

    After mutilating a couple of tubs in the beginning, and after learning more about how various people go about growing I figured I'd stop the tub abuse and see what happens, and it turned out better than expected! As an aside, if anyone ever wants to make really nice holes in a plastic tub, a tin...

    That is the interim plan, however, given my environmental conditions are less than ideal, I would ultimately like to have sterilised bags of twenty or so to work with at a time (as ultimately, one of the first rules is at every step possible, limit the potential for contamination). But yeah -...

    No holes at all. Tub is not airtight, so for incubation, clips on, towel over tub in warm area. For fruiting, I simply unclip the lid, fan with the lid, mist as needed, and put it back without clipping it down (to allow for gas exchange). The challenge here is figuring out how much you need to...

    I will happily do so... assuming I can find plates somewhere. Was hoping to find locally (i.e. without having to buy them online) - Boxes of 500, which may be a few too many. :laugh:

    You absolutely can! God knows what you might get in the post as a result though. :p

    Thanks! I haven't sorted out the agar stuff and such yet, but I did get two spore prints from two lovely specimens, which I will work with going forward with this strain. I also note that this was super-basic; unmodified boxes - Previously I've tried with holes, controlling airflow, etc, and...

    Howdy (...it's possible we have met before...). Substrate is CVG (500g / 500g / 100g + ~16 cups boiling water pasteurised in a bucket for 24 hours. Ratio of spawn to substrate is 1:2 - which works out well - as I have spawn bags that can hold 2kgs and the above recipe is just about right to...

    Hey - A really shitty stackable non-temp controlled food dehydrator; it's very difficult to not slightly burn them. Which reminds me: Anyone have any recommendations for a quality unit I can obtain in South Africa (they are oddly hard to find)? Thanks!
