PF - Tek / SO frustrated...please HELP
« on: September 16, 2012, 06:37:52 AM »
Hi my friends..
I'm writing here because I'm gettin so frustrated from this..

Time ago i tried my first brf cake experience , and it goes great. lot of shroom and 6/on 7  good cakes so i was happy, iv made my own print spore and collect them.

after a while i tried more brf cakes with my print spore, but germination seems to be decrease brutally..
i think is normal due to the fact that I'm new to this and also i can get some bacteria inside (infact in that period i had more wasted jar) and also very few mushroom from the ''good cakes''

now from a while....I'm gettin NOTHING and i mean nothing , no white micelium , no mold...just fucking nothing
and I'm doing this like iv did it the first time... i also tried some more  spore syringe from the shop that suppose to work....and just nothing...i also made an incubator for leaving it at right temperature !!! (27 Celsius) but still nothing....

what do you suggest? is maybe the concentration of clore in the tap water?
is maybe that i let the cake sterilize just for 50 minutes (just with vapor, i didn't have a pressure cooker, nut i get no mold so i don't think is this)
maybe theres too little spore in my syringe? (i see them very black so i don't think this is the problem too)
maybe they are already dead by leaving them in the fridge for month?

I'm getting crazy and frustrated...please help!!

well when i come back from the vacation i have made the same process i usally made.
dunk it out and then leave it for 24 hours in the water for reydratation , all submerged,

then i take it out and put it in the fruit chamber that have no fan and just some expanded Clay (i think is the right name)
with high humidity. The other time it want all good and it was start pinning , this time no pin and also bad smell

hi guys,

I'm back and i have a simply question for you pf cake runners.

i was leaving for my holiday but i had notice that at that time my 2 jars were already full colonized , but i have to leave for 2 weeks so i remember somebody saying that ( iv read it on this forum) you can leave jar fully colonized also for longer time.

so i left from my home for the two weeks and when i come back i immediately start the process of rehydratation and i stuck them in the box with 100% humidity , today after 2 days i was waiting for pinning like crazy but i found nothing and also i found some groce smell come out from the cake i think.

Cake are regular, i mean no sign of infection or strange thing....maybe they need more days of rehydratation? that maybe becouse i left it more days in the jar.

you can tell me your opinion.
thank you very much for support

i suppose that you need (i speak for my experience) more humidity in the case for pinning...
just pour some water inside the case so the humidity would be at 100% and then you can see start pinning cake like crazy !!!

after 3-6 days of making grow pin , pour out the water from the case and control well the humidity it must be at 90-95 % your shroom gonna grow well and also remember to fan when growing they need oxygen otherwise they dont grow up but down.

hope its help

« on: June 10, 2011, 09:11:37 AM »
hi guys !

some month ago i have tried do do some liquid culture and today opening tha wordrobe i have seen that the liquid in the jar is quite colonized , you can see different ''clouds'' of micelium around the liquid and i think they are gettin bigger with time.

can i use that LC to inoculate directly my pf jars?
and if it yes how much i have to inoculate x jar?

do i might have problem with sucking the white cloud into my syringe?

tbanks in advance!

« on: May 04, 2011, 10:34:33 AM »
hi there ....i haved incoluated some times ago, some little jar with a syringe of ecuadorian...

i haved wait but this times something wrong its start to growth.

it SEEMS like white micelium but if u look better is more gray than white the color and it seems to be much more fluffy stuff..
i dont know what this is , by  a quick search on the web it could be some with mushroom mould that its called Verticillium

anybody knows something?

i cant post photo if u want

thanks in advance

yes man , iv got the same problem.

its too much water inside the chamber. check out the humidity % and leave it around 90 %
when you do that you can see tath they will grow in height !!

its not about patience becouse regular spore becoming to germinate normaly after 4 or at maximum 15 days i think , its something about the spore and the water in the syringe .

i get this more clear.

after first attempt that i have failed iv found the residue of a syringe left in the fridge for a little bit of more time (after the first inoculation)
iv injected the water that was left just to get the syringe clear and make another attempt from the beggining.

the little water that i have injected has germinated!!!! so i think i have to left the spore in the syringe more than one week at least to make reidrateted or something....

the second attempt was made with spore leaved in the syiringe something about a week....and it failed also....
but it seems odd to me , becouse i have read that 24 hour for reidratate are enough!!

another important question,

can i reuse my NON inoculated jar for retrying ?? i v opened one and its smell like cheese....
maybe i have to reidratete and resterilize also the substrate?

ps: i use vermiculite and rice flour
