It's really really really hard to trust anything other than what you're growing yourself anymore I do remember her many many years ago somebody telling me that the government has made it almost impossible to grab the peak the precursors for real Lucy I'll just assume that it's still that way any government that would make oxycodone available to everyone and make Quaaludes illegal are f****** douchebags

Wish I could definitively say its LSD. I mean unless my age is the difference I have to take a monster shit as I start to see the effects. The effects are spot on to the blotter I got from a Deadhead friend that would cop a couple sheets every time they came around. Funny Ive been trading the same buddy weed for Penis envy mushrooms lately and I was more scared of that than LSD...Until now. I took 4g at least weighed out on a kitchen scale during the superbowl half time show lol it was VERY similar to LSD. I had a great journey. Very spiritual and connecting to everything not just everyone. At that dose it seems to last as long as LSD. needless to say it was refreshing to come back lol

Looks like you got your self a problem not knowing what you got. I no a guy that can definitely tell you if that’s what you think it is.
He just needs a sample and it will only take him 2 hours to report back to you once he no’s what you got:)
That is if he can remember what he’s doing😉

Rye grain?
Yup. I grow culinary mushrooms in bulk, this is a little different. Those just got started a couple days ago. 5 strains, we will see which one does the best.

Probably not the way most people do it, but I have the stuff laying around.

me too! really need to get the agar made up man... life is getting in the way though. really hoping to get some azures going in an outdoor bed (harvest in fall) and also planning on trying my hand at some clones from store bought oysters and will do some straw through the summer on those. of course that's all if I can get my ass in gear and get the agar work going.

I started just buying potato dextrose agar in plates already sterilized in bulk. When I did the math, it's a no brainer for me to NOT spend the time prepping plates. You can get them pretty cheap if you buy in bulk, but you can even get them 10 at a time from Amazon and saves a lot of fukking around.

I throw away the old dishes and just keep moving. Just easier all around. That and the plastic bags are really all the trash I make - I'm OK with that. Soon there will be mushrooms breaking down plastic at scale too. (I hope)

i've considered getting the premade plates but I just couldn't justify the cost vs risk of receiving contaminated plates. I've always wanted to get into making my own plates anyways (lots of fun biology experiments can be done, not just mycology) so it's a win-win for me to do it myself. Plus, blanks are cheap and disposable so it's not a huge loss if i'm to blame for contamination during initial pour.

the bags are going to be a great upgrade this time round. previously I've done mostly monotubs and they're just so space consuming vs bags that can be fruited in and take up almost no space in comparison. They're also way cheaper vs sterilite or rubbermaid tubs and are equally capable of some quite impressive flushes. hell, i was even debating doing a few oyster bags just for the sake of setting em on the kitchen table or counter and letting the kids have their minds blown by watching the fruit bodies appear and grow super quickly.

Figure since I don't have anything running atm now's the time to get on with the agar work. Need to build a new SAB and then can move along with getting plates made up.

Here is my SAB

I have never received a contaminated pre made plate and I’ve used thousands. But fun to make yourself if you are doing small qty and enjoy every part of the process.

So you grow out cubensis in a bag? I’ve never tried it that way. Seems like it would significantly reduce size of flushes. But that’s how I do all the edible varieties. I order wood pellets by the pallet and use an 85 gal sterilizer. I just don’t see that as a good way to grow button size mushrooms. Maybe I’m missing something?
