hey guys, Well im going to try and grow hawaiians, after a moderatly good PF experience, and i would like to get any tips and stories of success growing this strain that you all have. When you answer tell which Tek you used and how nice your yeild was. This is from your own experiences, none of these "Everybody has there own way to do it" answers, even though i know thats how it works. But i want to hear your individual stories. thanks

Hawaiian is my favorite race, becaus of its few aborts and large flushes. Growing them on pf cakes, a half-dozen cakes yields 1/2 ounce every time they flush...grown outdoors on dung they make themselves right at home and produce an ounce per dungheap, about 1/2 gallon of mycelium. They're a good shroom, plenty strong, and makes all kinds of crazy's the best cultivar IMHO

definitly one of my favs, too.
works with any tek, colonizes fast, fruits heavy.
a definite winner.
try it on birdseed, cased, it kicks ass.

thanks guys, which casing method works best? just the verm casing or some fancy one

I just put a good deal of effort into starting some Equadorian run's being Nan said it was one of her faves. I'm just at the point of casing tonight and was wondering....Gee I've done alright with the PF race but with that I've only done two different TEK styles. Am I gonna be able to expect the same patterns of growth with the Equadors?

if you're ready to move beyond vermiculite,

By trent (Cali_Sk8r) on Friday, November 16, 2001 - 01:30 am: The Nook

Hmm, how bout this? Im thinking that it might be kind of redundant, but how bout putting the cakes into a perlite humidified terrarium, using the double ended casing tek but instead of using just vermiculite, if you used the formula that you linked to? Anyone ever try something like that? if so did it work out good? if not does this idea sound like something to try? thanks

you could do that, i suppose.
but it's more typically used for a full-fledged crumbled cake/casing than for intact cakes.

AFOAF knows someone who has pf hawaiians at almost 2 weeks. they have been at 70 +/-6degrees and should be fully colonized in a few days.

Will these pin "invitro" or will they be hesistant as the pf-hawaiian page says. How long should they wait before birthing the jars. 4 recieved a little over 1.5cc spore solution while others recieved less. the 4 should be done soon.

once again, just asking for any experiences people have had with the hawaiians of this nature.

also, when should they start giving them light; when they are fully white or at 4 or so weeks.

they don't invitro to well. let them sit invitro for about a couple of weeks after complete colonization and then do the PF double ended cake casing tek. They are one of the best cubies

mine pinned invitro, but were not heavy invitro fruiters. do like pf said.

Do as PF says. A couple years ago, when I was younger and dumber, I simply threw away some Hawaiian cakes that failed to pin in-vitro, because I was used to the fat, in vitro primordiation of PF's strain. Fortunately, i tossed them into a trash can full of grass, leaves, sticks, and a little water. Well, this story of abuse has a happy ending -- a fat crop growing in a (somewhat unglamorous, but what the hell) trashcan on my back porch. Got some treasure coasts out of the deal, too.
