PF - Tek / USING WHOLE RUBBERMAID BIN AS CASING
« on: September 19, 2004, 11:13:06 AM »
Quote
I Have been reading about casing and was wondering if I thoroughly cleaned my rubbermaid bin, if I could use it as one big casing to use more volume. My question is would I put my cultured substrate down and cover with pressure cooked substrate down like normal, or would it be wise to throw down some pressure cooked substrate first, then cultured substrate,then a top casing layer. Or maybe another soil would work best to put down first since it would directly touch the bin.

I've done this before......it's actually remarkably effective, altho you have to be careful about cleaning the bin if it's been used for anything before.  A 20 min bleach soak followed by a dilute h2o2 rinse works pretty well for me.

Good luck!

I thought it was down again right now.  But it looks like it's just taking an extremely long time to load each page.

General topics / additives

Has anyone heard of adding tyramine to the substrate for greater potency?
If so, has anyone tried it, and what have your results been?

What about other additives? are there additives that can be added to the substrate to increase potency?

I can't say anything from experience, but another additive that has worked (at least, its been SAID to)
is Desmanthus Illinoisis root bark.  Theres also been some discussion about the use of dried phlaris grass as a substrate additive, but i've seen no results from that yet.
The mechanism appears sound......from what i understand, putting a supply of already formed tryptamine into the cycle allows the fungi to pick up the psilo-x compound metabolic cycle in mid swing, thereby allowing it to create more active compounds than if it had to work all the way thru.

Yeah....was on earlie, but then a few people registered at TDUB got a mail saying that Vamp got hit by the DEA...
then that was discredited thru a rapid series of phone calls, and another was sent out, basically saying that they weren't joking around.
Then someone pulls another DDoS attack, and here we are.
This is bullshit.

But yeah, i'll hide here for a bit. :ph34r:
