    Simple monotub...pretty sure it's a 50 gal bin with polyfill holes at 1-1-1/2" diameter; 4 located at one inch from the bottom of the tub and 2 located at each end centered at 1 inch below the top. The sub is just coir verm and gypsum.

    Hi Dick~ I just thought I'd stop in and say hi to the other shroom people on the site. I've had great luck with mushrooms com. It's run by one of the oldest hands in the game.

    Anybody do PE or stones?

    Came back from vacay to find my tub a total mess. Contaminated with trichoderma I believe...pics coming soon. I picked all the shrooms I could before I left and dried them but left the pins. They all grew out and dropped spores; a few of them apparently rotted because nobody picked them and that I think is where the contams began. Oh well got a nice bunch of fruits from that tub.
    Luckily I have a second tub that is now colonized. Just started it into fruiting conditions so stay tuned for more boomers y'all

    Sclerotia from Ps. Mexicana... Sort of a nutty taste but in the way you'd expect squirrel vomit probably tastes. But you can literally knock up jars of wheat and not do another damn thing for six months, and harvest the stones... or use bags if you don't want to tie up your jars.

    Ahh yes sclerotia. Always wondered what they were like. I actually don't mind the taste of fresh shrooms but it's the texture when dried that gets me. That's why I usually opt for sippin on tea instead of direct ingestion. Are the psycho-effects of stones similar to shrooms? Do you put siracha on them? I put that shit on everything....

    Ok so after that disturbing pic of a grossly contaminated sub here's a fresh clean one with some lovely pins just coming up. Looks to be a nice first flush for tub numba too...

    Guess I caught these a bit late; they already started dropping spores but a nice flush nonetheless....

    IMG_5211.JPG These popped up the very next day and more pins are still growing....the caps are so fat the trays in the dehydrator won't even stack together. I had to place trays right on top of the shrooms to smoosh them down
