PF - Tek / NEED HELP FRUITING STALL
« on: November 01, 2010, 12:51:33 PM »
hI

I had one cake in a dozen that grew myc fast, so I put it in my FC before the rest of the gang. I usually case them but I stuck this little guy alone. It started growing fine, nice long thick stems, then it stopped and got really skinny at the end, my caps never finished and never opened. The myc is all over the stems and is taking over the caps as well. My humidity is fine and they get plenty FAE????????  what the hell,   I put a few more guys in with him but they havn't started rolling yet.

PF - Tek / Made a mistake. HELP!!!

I have a dozen pftek jars incubating and I made a mistake and left my temp at 88 degrees.  I noticed and turned it down. Well, they are growing except for the bottoms of some jars.  Should I keep them incubating? or cut off the bottoms and crumble them up in casing???

General topics / Growing wild in CT
« on: June 11, 2009, 06:42:26 AM »
If there is anyone from the new England area, Have you seen any species growing wild here? 

I found a few in my yard and run to the computer to try and identify.  I wasn't 100% so I left them alone but they looked a lot like liberty caps. I didn't think the northeast was a suitable place for wild growth? 

I think they are going to be on my pizza soon.

PF - Tek / Pinning on a contaminated cake
« on: June 04, 2009, 08:34:36 AM »
I have my cakes in my fc and one is starting to pin.  I noticed a green spec on the top of the cake on the other side of the cake.  What should I do?  Cut off a portion of the cake or use the peroxide/water method?  Its been so long since I got some fruit, I dont want to loose these cakes.  HELP!!!!!!

I have my f/c in a closet where there is no electric, My fc is running about 80% humidity.  I blocked all the holes and added a little more water. What else can I do to raise the humidity?

I dont have space in my incub to make a new batch just yet.  Do the syringes need refrigeration or freezing?  I'll be pissed if they go bad.  Thanks...

What will happen to a jar if you inoculate with 2 species?

PF - Tek / Can you use a heating pad to colonize jars?
« on: March 05, 2009, 08:56:05 AM »
I'm going to try one more time, I just purchased pre sterilized jars from a web site.  The cakes that I made are not as bright white like most pics I see of fully colonized jars.  Some spots of my sub didnt totally colonize 100%.  I shook one and it was crap inside, i chucked it.  the others are mostly done except for a few spots that just wont turn white.  Its not discolored just the sub hasnt gotten white.  Are the pre sterile jars good?
