Hey Guys.

As you've read in my other thread, my name is Hein. I am from South Africa and have never grown mushrooms in my life. Taken it once and that's it.

I met a guy from who I got a free syringe of Fanaticus from. I read on some sights that if the syringe water is slightly violet, then you've struck it lucky. The syringe I got from this dude was dark grey with many thick clumps drifting in the solution. So I was very happy.

The grow medium I use is Vermiculite and Brown Rice Flour. Mixed it to specs and filled 5 jars to 2cm above top. I put a layer of dry verm on top and seald it with a double layer of foil. I then took another piece of foil and made a 3rd top.

Then I pressure Cooked it for 45min and left it over night to cool down. This morning I inoculated the jars but seeing that I'm new I used way to much. I ended up using only 4 jars. OOPS!!!! 

So that's it so far. Will update as it goes on.
Some feedback would be appreciated cause I would love to continue and grower more difficult strains later in life

Hey guys

My name is Hein and as you'll find out now, I'm quite new to the whole growing of mushrooms.

I got my substrate I'm gonna use as well as some spores. Everything is happening tonight so I have a question. When I birth the cakes, and they have pinned, do I keep them under a light cycle or isn't it that necessary. My friend who I got the spores from says that it must go under a 12 12 cycle.

I read onm some pages that it doesn't need any light cause only plants photosynthesis, but isn't a mushroom a growing organism???

Please any advice would help a lot
