PF - Tek / Ideas before I get started - input please
« on: September 30, 2004, 01:15:02 AM »
I travel for a living, but when I am home I think I may be able to cultivate. If not, im disappointed! I expect to be out of town for 3 weeks. I am using an aussie strain.

So, in order for me to yeild 3 waves using pf tek method, I have some questions about automated setups.

Here is my plan:
substrate and innoculate jars/glasses before I leave town (est 6 cakes). Setup everything for incubation in my closet - inside one of my rubbermaid storage containers.
I expect to have this environment to be tested for accuracy before I leave town using a meter. Preferrably keeping it at a medium temp so colonization does not occur too quickly. After all of this has been setup, I leave town.

When I get home, I expect the cakes to be colonized, and pinning (or close to it).  Birth and begin the fruiting using perlite - follow the pf tek manual from then on, with only one variation - your tin foil method instead of using a cap.

While I am expecting these to fruit, time is VERY important, cause I leave town 2 weeks after I get home, is it possible to get maximum flushes and yield in that amount of time after beginning the fruiting process? I read so much about it, and found it to be too variable to count on maximum yield. I really want to try this, but I want to know if I am wasting my time, or if I am going to miss one of my flushes due to my time constraint.

Will using smaller containers during substration allow for a faster fruiting process? I understand that there will be less area for the mycelium to grow, hence a faster colonization as well, but under cold temperatures I can safely be gone for 21 days and not ruin my cakes.

Any tips or ways I can modify my method for me to be able to cultivate in this lifestyle? Or do I need to move to washington to pick em?
