PF - Tek / Re: good air/bad air?
« on: August 19, 2007, 04:37:23 PM »
I am more interested in knowing if air circulation is essential while colonizing and also for fruiting. 

this basement room should be good. carpet, finished walls. exercise and drum room which I don't use too often right now.  the door stays closed to keep dusts and things from getting it. don't know how much air exchange goes on in there though. too warm in upstairs rooms for most of the day until fall and winter come to play.

nos hit. I've been sayin that in all of my latest posts and replies. If reading one tek, you should stay with it, but then use luck and instinct to make the right decision if ya need a bit more info that the teks don't cover.
other hand, I'm new at this plus I am not of the "lucky" club so I get to learn the hard way usually.

thanx bro.

PF - Tek / good air/bad air?
« on: August 19, 2007, 11:48:11 AM »
does N E one know if it is important that air in a room needs to be circulating for the colonization process?

 scenario: a room in the basement(@ 10' X12') no windows and door closed.

another matter not discussed or mentioned in any TEK.

 Q # 2- is there a particular syringe tek I should avoid? I need to sterilize for near future use

wow, mabey  I'd better have that recepie.
 stuck on cakes.

after the cakes colonize they can be crumbled and cased? I think I read a tek on it somewhere.

yea, possible. I got them from the Hawkster at a time when he seemed to be in a hurry to go shroom hunting and must have left my order on the back burner. I received them five weeks after my order. They were clumpy spores if you can remember from my notes in the forum. the remaining two don't have as many clumps as the first two.

my next attempt is 6 jars using one of the remaining 2 syringes I got from him, and I am paying attention now I know a little more since first try.

 anyone know which is better or easier ?Simple minds TEK or PF TEK, In basic cultivation.

No no no, that tek for simple minds call for, in US measure per six 1/2 pint jars:
 1 cup  BRF, 3.5 cups Verm then add water until it is "just right".
that means for 12 1/2 pt jars the ratio is : 2 cups BRF and 7 cups Verm. how much water? possible to not get enough water?

Now read the recommend from PF TEK for simple minds.

For one pint jar(~240 ml) you will need:
=> 140 ml vermiculite
=> 40 ml brown rice flour
=> some vermiculite to fill the jar to the top (app. 20 ml)
=> water
,,,,,,, (so how much water? so not too much or too little is used?) How much is too little anyway?

the next tek in line(how to grow mushrooms) calls for 2/3 cup Verm, 1/4 BRF, and 1/4 cup water per 1/2 pint jar.

and on and on goes the conflicting info's.

I didn't consider in my beginning that those teks were so different, possibly helping to cause my project a failure.... thanx for listening.

Dudes, when a situation occurs such as cakes turned bluish green, from what who knows, and not advancing anymore, starting to smell a bit moldy, can a bleach dunk or something else help to snap them out of that stage? I believe there is a chance for revival but I'm new at this beginning stage, sooo.

they were in my opinion, birthed late, then late to begin fruiting then if that isn't enough, went haywire. Turning blue (choking up?). fanning and misting and light religiously each day best I could. begin to pin then went weird. see pics in the forum at the bottom of the topic, "how bout now pics, updated".

 i'm going to grow some damned shrooms if it kills me. I'm thinking of using the tek for simple minds again,if that's allright. have all the components already.

Who knows the correct mix ratio of verm/brf and water in "US" measure, cups, not ml. for 12 1/2 pt jars. or 6 no matter.
is it 7 cups verm and 2 cups brf.? how much water in measure.

Also I need to know what other info I need to follow. Apparently I read too much info from too many different sources. failed two 12 jar batches, just in time for fruiting too.
some of those cakes by the way are starting to grow new myc, now I really don't know how to handle them. where are the dunk teks or info.

thanx for all your patience with me. I'm a damned good laborer, somewhat creative, but not a very good brainer.

 I don't like giving up. thank you very much.

thanx dude, I'll try to remember where that TEK is, cuz  damn if I ain't gettin ready to go another batch of them freekin cakes. I have a problem with temps here so I'd probly need a bunch of coslty equip.

and tryin to figure what strain I would go with. I have spores of Mexican, Redboy and s. am whatever that is
oh I guess So. American mabey.

doin a syringe ought to be a trip speshly if I failed at cakes, c'mon.


Cultivation / more grow teks?
« on: August 16, 2007, 06:56:54 PM »

you have saran wrap on your tub and you fan a couple times per day. Does your tub have holes or is it just a plain ol tub?

Hay Baph. which tek did you use for the bleach dunk?

and did your cakes look anything like those I sent a pic of (third up from bottom in "how bout now Pics"?

Cultivation / Re: Attn: Anno, Baph, Warrior etc.
« on: August 15, 2007, 08:08:51 PM »
I really don't know exactly what went wrong or when. I know of a few things I can improve or do different but those teks don't cover several infos and some that might have made a helluva lot of difference. dig? It'll take a year to read up with my schedule.

so  I should, toss the whole thing? all of it? wow

How bout a bleach or cold dunk? at least for the 6 cakes in the third pic up, from ?

and that weird dwarfy lookin one growing on the side???  bottom 2 pics. no salvation for any of them?

they were doing great until after a couple weeks in the FC . that's after two months plus, waiting for them to fully colonize. something was not right. mabey packed to tight or just waited too long to birth em.

mabey bad spore syringe(???)!

2 months of reading (on spare time) and 4 months from start to trash. It'll take the rest of my life to figure it out at that rate. guess I'll hafta find some ready to eat, on the street level if It's gunna take that long.


thanx bro.

peace out

 I think my project went south on me. the whole damned thang, just when it was sposta git good.

any advice concerning the latest pics (of the bad)I sent in the cultivation forum, Topic: "How bout now? Pics. Updated"[/u].

I think I failed, and for several reasons of which I hope I learned a few things. Other than that I needed info that wasn't mentioned or covered in the TEK's which I studied for a couple of months before attempting.

anything: questions and suggestions please and thanx

I did gain from replies, tips and suggestions as well as criticism from ya'all which I appreciate.

thanx for continuing to help with a lost cause.

they're not getting a lot of fresh air (how?) since one tub is sealed and the other with holes. the light is indirect sunlight from about 1-2pm to days end around 7-8pm now days. and I have been fanning both.

been gone for few days, had someone who doesn't know anything but what I have told doing the fanning and misting a couple of cakes don't look too good. (see below)

the temps here have been near 100* and the tubs are in a room and not much air circulation. a window is open several inches.

any precautions to handling mold???

some activity(slow) but green

no activity yet and green or blue

what the heck is this?

thanx Anno,

it will be interesting to know what it is doing that is not explained in the info's and TEK's.

is my growing issues common or unique? I'm sure everyone experiences different scenarios?

Ok but to touch they feel kinda wet and sticky(?) I hope that is good description.

I covered 90% of the holes and the humidity is staying up and steady now.
