PF - Tek / Re: Do PF Jars need to breathe?
« on: June 17, 2009, 01:37:54 AM »
Excuse me for pointing out that you guys got onto grain and the subject was PF tek.  Fresh air exchange if my memory serves.  As for Florida, ain't there crime there?  I'm from North Queensland, Australia.  Similar climate but not so many douche bags.
So... how can it hurt to put a little tyvek filter over the jar?  My contamination rate is like 80 - 90 %

I've been meaning to ask the same thing.  So after puncturing the micropore tape with the syringe, you just put the jar in your warm dark area, right?  I mean with the puncture holes there.  Where contaminants can get in.  If I tape those holes over, does the mycelium starve for air?

I'll keep on trying guys, thanks for the feedback.  My latest effort is 24 jars!  I figure it's gotta increase my chances, and hey this aint expensive or anything.

Five or six attempts at PF now and most attempts have been contaminated by green mould.  I've had most contamination in the jar. IE after a couple of weeks, the jar gets green shit growing in there and killing the white mycelium, but I've had a couple of fruiting sucesses where I might even get a couple of mushrooms but then the dreaded green shit moves in and destroys everything, including my enthusiasm.
I live in a tropical area, North Queensland, Australia.  There is a lot of mould and mildew here naturally, so I'm thinking I need to take extra precautions. 
When I innoculate, should I put a filter over the top of the jar, so that it can still breathe but mould etc can't get in.
When I fruit in the fruiting chamber, how about I filter the air that I pump in there, EG by filtering the air I pump in there by wrapping the fish tank pump in a filter of some sort?
Anybody else live in tropic environs?

I got sporeprints sent to Australia from a well known supplier in Illinois.  Used a PO box with fake name and looked over my shoulder when I picked it up LOL.  Or maybe I just got lucky.  By the way Australia is waaaay conservative with this stuff.

Anybody got any tips or links to same for growing shrooms from prints?  I can't go down the syringe path due to being in another country.

Can anyone give me some tips on growing from prints?  Can't find much on the net and it seems that prints might be the only way to go, me being overseas and all.

Does anybody know what will happen if I purchase spores from UK or USA and import them into Australia.

Desired result:  Nothing, start growing mushrooms.

Unwanted result:  Large men with suits and haircuts knocking on my door.
