« on: May 27, 2008, 11:15:15 AM »
yeah, Ive been trying but i live in the northeast and its been pretty cold recently, my closet is against an outside wall. anyways i have a few more pins popping out know, but the original ones are starting to turn a little but black at the end and they haven't grow anymore, should i cut them off? also my cakes are starting to turn a bit blue at the top, not green definitely blue. i know its bruising. is this normal during fruiting? i definitely have it humid enough

PF - Tek / Slow pinning or stalled?
« on: May 22, 2008, 12:40:38 PM »
i've had 3 cakes in the fruiting chamber for 10 days. the first pin appeared on one cake 4 or 5 days ago. Its now the size of a pencil eraser and doesnt seem to be doing much. there are two other pins on the same cake but both are smaller in size. where i live its been rather cold at night. the temp of the FC has been between 72 during the day and 67 at night. Ive been keeping humidity high via a air pump humidifier. light has been 12/12 using a 24watt xenon lamp. the other two cakes havent really done anything, but all three are covered with small lumps of collected mycelium. Ive been doing as much research as possible, but if this doesnt work it will be my second failure, so im trying to get advice before alll hope is lost. Also what tek do you guys recommend for making a mycelium syringe? thanks

PF - Tek / PLASTIC OR BLANKET
« on: April 25, 2008, 01:17:32 PM »
i'm using the pf tek. i have my jars in a large rubbermaid container. should i have the plastic lid on it and just take it off once a day for air exchange, or should i leave the lid off and drape a blanket over it just to keep the heat in. i figured with the lid on it would give the jars a slightly more steril environment. any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cultivation / EVERYONE READ (WARNING ABOUT SPORESTORE.COM)
« on: April 17, 2008, 03:15:11 PM »
I ordered two strains of spores and 12 myco jars on the 3rd of April. After ordering I was looking around their site and when i clicked on one of their links, a red screen popped up, the right hand upper corner of the screen said Hacked By Emultormania.org in black letters, otherwise the screen was completely red. After seeing this i got kinda worried about the fact that i just gave this website my credit card information. I wrote them 1 email a day for the next 5 days about this subject and never received a reply, which kind of worried me. Also in these emails I requested that they notify me when my package had shipped so that i would be able to figure out when it would get here. Yesterday, APRIL 16th (13 DAYS AFTER I PLACED MY ORDER VIA CREDIT CARD!!!) I received an email saying that my order was being processed and would be shipped out within the next 2 days. No appology, no answer about the red hacked page, nothing. Beware people, dont deal with this company, I thought I was dealing with professionals but apparently I wasn't. Just thought i would warn you guys so u wouldnt have to put up with this crap.  Do anyone know a reliable website for cheap jars?

Cultivation / Re: Grow bag FIRST TIME . HELP!!!
« on: April 17, 2008, 02:54:58 PM »
Yeah pretty sure i lost it to bacteria. The rye berries started to turn to mush, no more mycelium growth, and it started to smell worse (think dead animal). That sucks, what a way to start out. Anyways do you guys recommend sterilizing the syringe with alcohol or heat? Ive seen videos show it both way. I want to try eveything i can next time to avoid this. Thanx for the help baph, and chemicaltribe.

Cultivation / Grow bag FIRST TIME . HELP!!!
« on: April 13, 2008, 06:38:07 PM »
Hi this is my first attempt to grow. I went with a 3 LB. Rye bag that i bought online and a syringe of B+. I innoculated with 4 mL. I then more or less shooked up the contents to mix the spores around. The bag is incubating in a rubbermaid container which is kept at 80 degrees with an aquarium heater. After 5 days growth appeared in several areas. Its been another six days since then and the growth does not appear to be spreading. How long is the normal time for a 3Lb bag take to colonize after initail mycelium growth? there are 3 areas of growth, 2 the size of a pencil eraser and on the size af about a dime. Does taking the bag out of the rubbermaid container and into the light to check it have any negative effects? any help will be greatly appreciated.
