A few complaints about TEKs
    #1024295 - 11/05/02 12:37 PM (21 years, 7 months ago)

I'd like to say that I have some complaints about the TEKs that I've read. Most teks that I read make it extremely hard for the newbie to judge exactly how many hours of light a day one should expose their cakes/casings to. They also do not specify very well when in the mushrooms growth do you harvest the cap for spore collection. Is it best to do before the veil breaks?? Best to do it while it is breaking.. or after it has broken??

I am thinking about writing a tek that includes a lot of stuff I just learned as a newbie that is not listed in the teks. Sure some of it is common sense, or mundane... but newbies should have the chance to learn about what their getting into before they screw it up and then learn about it. Why not learn from where others have made mistakes?

Yes, the FAQ for one,
and to answer your question:
>?? Best to do it while it is breaking.. or after it has broken??
After when the cap nearly flattens and you see spores on the veil.

I agree with you. For a very detail oriented person like me, every tek leaves some tiny questions that I can't stand leaving as unknowns. But everyone's style of learning is different and I realized if I wrote a tek the way I wanted to read it, most people wouldn't get it. But I guess that's why this forum is here, so people like me can ask stupid questions all the time...too bad I didn't know it existed when I first started growing, I could've asked a million stupid questions  :tongue:

Thanks. I am also a detail orientated person and like every last detail explained, outlined, and in bold print. The teks don't really show much... and that's fine for the majority of persons. Personally I would have to say that I do not enjoy guessing how many hours of sunlight to put my mushrooms under. some say three, some say twelve.....at least in the marijuana grow guides they actually outline veg and flowering state light... etc etc.

it's much more important to have the light right for cannabis. if you don't do cannabis light right you'll get crappy buds or no buds at all.

my friend leaves his shroom lights on 24 hours a day. some people use only ambient light. the point is that it's not that critical to get an exact amount of light for shrooms. they just need something to let them know to fruit and which way to grow. best bet: go in the middle with 12 hours.
