PF - Tek / So it begins
« on: August 11, 2004, 08:48:55 PM »
A couple of quick questions here:

1.  Should I be concerned with condensation build up on the inside walls of my jars?
2.  Is there any special sterilization procedure for fruiting chambers?  Or do they just have to be generaly clean...


1. No
2. I just wipe the FC with a bleach solution 1:200 and with the perlite (if ur using perlite) 1:200 solution in the water and misting bottle as well.

I was to lazy to go and buy h202 lol

So far I havent had a problem at all with bleach!

hope this helps

I dunno about you, but before I noc up my jars, I sterilize the needle with a lighter.  I repeat this again every 2 jars to prevent cross contamination.  I dunno, just something I picked up from another tek.

I just wipe the needle with swabs.

Ok Ive started my first go at the PF-Tek 4 Simple Minds.  I had to make me own syringes from a print, (Ralphsters  :D )

So far 2 of the slower jars have Green Contam  one of the fast ones 90% got black contam.   (Im using a PC) ** I chucked out the bad ones **

Black stuff just ripped throught the Myc in 2 days started as a dot then just ripped through like a storm.

19days since Inncoulation 7 of 10 are 98-100% colonised! :)

Why is it that all 10 where made at the same time and 3 contaminated ?

What could of caused that ?  May the needle hit a bug in the air or I had a couple of bugs land in my spore solution when I made it ? *Oven Tek*

Annoying but atleast I get to make up some more jars again!

I did a dry temp fruiting run with twin tubs (one tub in another with heater).

Outside air 20-22 degrees inside with heater set on 32 deg, i got a variation between 24-28.  Now time for a humidity run.

Are the humidity levels to remain the same once the cakes hit the terrarium.
Or where can I find a very informative piece written on the temp and humidity levels, through out all the satges.  Im yet to begin, but Im going to do a dry run first to see how the temp and humidity levels go.  I see if I get them right then I should start not fumble along the way.

Ta. :lol:

Do many Poisonous Species of Mushrooms grow in cow turd ?

Or is it a pretty safe bet if they display the basic signs of being magic :D , they probably will be ?

Any help greatfully appreciated

PF - Tek / Spore Printing.
« on: May 19, 2004, 03:17:20 AM »
Hi all,

 Im just wondering about hows the best way to spore print and get my samples into a syringe.  I have too get my own wild specimens to begin this process.  I have just read that you can Spore print in a glass Jar and then add your water to it and do it that way.  Also keep some spore prints on paper for later use aswell.

I cant remember where I just found this info, any help to set me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!
