PF - Tek / RH and temp in the COLD NE
« on: February 18, 2010, 11:35:44 AM »
Hey guys,
     I live in the Northeast and the winter is cold and dry. I was planning to fruit my BRF cakes for my first grow in a tub with a perlite base. Didn't Know a way to keep my heat in the 70s while allowing air to penetrate the bottom to allow evaporation, as I am using a tub with water and an aquarium heater to heat. Any tips or ideas would be great.

Thanks guys.
PS I just hit up 5 more jars too. OH YEAH!!

So it seams as though I was getting myself to worked up. Out of 5 cakes I now have 4 with all 4 innoc spot growing at least quarter sized mycelium. I think I put too much verm anti-contam layer on the 5th. I was about to trash them too. I have to work on my patience!!! Thanks for the support!
I'll try to keep you guys posted in this thread as to the progress of my first grow!!

So you're saying that in theory it is possible to make a spore print directly on agar and get mycelium growth?

Again.. I am a newbie  waiting for my first jars to colonize. I'm trying to not ask questions that were previously answered so patience with me is greatly appreciated.

hey thanks, just trying to suck as much info as i can from you guys and maybe hook some of you up with more info as I get more into this.

That setup looks sweet, cheap, and easy. I'm assuming that that pump produces humidity for the FC? and the lava rock to help with that? Does it also help with the FAE?
Maybe simple ??s, but I'm real new to this and reading almost EVERYTHING you guys are posting. Much info from all you guys. Learning a lot.

Hey guys....
It's been 7 days since I hit up 5 jars with a spore syringe I made from a print of Alecbenzi. I am using the BRF tek. I didn't know how long to let my spores sit in the syringe I made before I hit my pints up, or if it matters how long I let them sit seeing as there is a good amount of moisture inside the jars.
Just wondering seeing as I am about to set up my next syringe from my last spore print and I would love to see some nice ropey growth in my jars.

Helo, who was nice enough to give me some hope in a prior post, said he/she has waited 20 days to see growth. is this common?

and again.... how long should I let spores sit in the syringe before I send them into a delicious BRF cake?

Thanks guys!!!

     Thanks, I feel SOOOO much better. I've read so much from the "pros", that they make it sound so easy. I cant wait to see some growth and then move on to  some grains.. sounds like so much fun.
aLSO thanks for the tips for syringes.
If I reuse a syringe, can I just boil it, or do I need to PC it? as I don't have a PC quite yet... thats why I had to go with the BRF Tek.

Thanks guys.... Well at least if nothing grows i know I'm not getting any contaminants in during my syringe making and inoculation. That's sweet. What is a good amount of time to let my spores sit in my sterile water before I knock up my jars? and whats the longest you guys have ever waited to see signs of mycelium? and how long should I wait before I scrap this batch?
You guys are so helpfull!!! I've spent soooooo many hours reading this forum.

« on: February 15, 2010, 02:28:40 PM »
Hey guys, on my first ever attempt at growing I hit up 5 one pint jars of BRF cakes about 6 days ago. I followed a  Tek on making the syringe from a spore print. I the only syringe I could get my hands on was only a 5cc. I used one spore print that was shipped to me about 5 months ago.
#1 - I only let the spores sit in the syringe for about 2 hours before I hit the jars up. Later I read that the spores should sit in the syringe for at least 24 hours. Do you think I'm doomed?
#2 - For the first 6 days I didn't have a good setup for incubation and only had temps around 70F-72F. I just set up a better system today and now can easily maintain temps at 80F. Do you think the combination of these two beginners errors will doom my first crop??

Also curious about where to buy syringes legally? I'm in the northwest and drug stores looked at me like I was some idiot when I tried to buy syringes there.

Thanks so much guys

I also had one more thing.....
     I'm using a strain called Alecbenzi. Anyone have any experience with this strain? Thanks

Hey Guys. I've read many of your posts and replies. I'm just started my first 6 BRF cakes in 1 pint jars. Getting spores here is a pain in the ass, so when I get a jar fully colonized I want to make something besides a spore print so I can grow again and don't need anything sent to me. Any ideas? don't know what will last the longest.
You guys are wicked knowledgeable.... thanks a bunch.
