  1. Im writing to inform the community of the passing of a dear friend and member of the SAB forums, who was a member from the beginning, who sadly lost their battle with cancer this morning. Naja naja was a fine man and a great contributor to the community and his passing will be felt by those who have had any dealings with him over the years. He was taken far too young. Please spare a thought and raise a toast this evening or whenever you receive this news. Naja naja, thanks for being such a legend

    What is the most delicious gourmet mushy?

    Fat King oyster steaks are one of my favourites so far.

    Efficacy of casing

    Ive seen someone who used to use it for cubensis, and got lazy once and left it off. The flush was as good if not better, so they stopped using casing altogether from then on, and is perfectly happy. This is in a small, enclosed fruiting environment with high humidity levels.

    Mushroom seeds

    Has anyone tired growing them out on the board as directed? Of couse going to agar will contamiante, but wood is always more resitant to contaminant growth.

    I agree there should have been a clearer write up from the start, that would have been heaps more helpful...

    Shotgun fruiting chamber

    I think he didnt bother writing a specific tek because it was as easy as you see in the photos - spawn in a bucket, put on a shower cap and colonise/fruit. Its that easy. Here is a link to a more detailed explanation - http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/18892960/fpart/1/vc/1 And another one here - http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/9501009 There is lots of talk these days about side pinning happening not because of light hitting the substrate, but because the substrate pulls away slightly from the side of the container and provides a brilliant micro-climate for the pinning to happen on the sides. That seems to be the consensus rather than light.

    Shotgun fruiting chamber

    Its worth reading through the thread, he never wrote a tek on it, but that thread describes everything in detail. There are four holes around the top, and two near the substrate level. The holes are covered with micropore tape, and the substrate is spawned in the bucket, leveled out, and a shower cap thrown over the top, pushed down, and the bucket is thrown under a blanket to colonise. Once colonised and starting to fruit, the shower cap can be lifted up to increase fresh air. To fan the bucket, the shower cap can be lifted up and down like a lung - pulling in filtered air through the micropore covered holes. The best option however is to have a small fan on in the room, but not pointing at the buckets, to keep air circulating. This eliminates the need to maually fan and basically keeps them as a completely automated neglect tek. You can mist every few days if you want to stop things drying out. The whole thing is protected from fungal gnats so these won't ever be a problem again using buckets, and if a contamination occurs in a bucket, its isolated from the other buckets and can be disposed of easily. These can be used to fruit anything, King oysters perform really well in buckets.

    Refrigerating Cakes

    Hi and yes - you can store cakes for many months in the fridge to stall growth, but dont leave them much longer than 6 months or they will start to deteriorate.

    Eucalyptus mulch vs Pine forest

    So how about a wild eaucalyptus forest patch? I would think there are differences between states as well... SA has some very unique eucalyptus subs, and the WA eucalyptus subs are just ridiculously large, aggressive and potent.

    WA Gyms, tis the season

    First finds south confirmed as of the 9/5/2013. On track for my very rough 'second week of May' rule of thumb... But very thin on the ground on that day, only 5 specimens located. Edit - Subs, that is - not gyms.
