Im gonna start a new Tek!
    #1058584 - 11/16/02 07:29 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

A tek almost no one has heard of! I call it the mass or bulk brf or wwf tek!

Heres how my plan is:


I already have two glass bowls, one 3-pint and one 5-pint. I didnt buy the 8-pint since I doubt itll fit in the PC. Then I plan to use the same stuff thats used in the 1/2 pint pf tek. whole wheat flour, water mixed with verm. Then I add a dry verm layer an inch thick. Cover an inch and a half of the top of bowl with aluminum foil and PC for 90 min since its a large area to sterilize. Basically the same as the 1/2 pint but larger so Ill get more shrooms. and im gonna use EQ strain, they grow crazy fast. its been 5 days and my 20 ounce glass is already having growth half way to the bottom on one side and all 4 innoculation points have grown a mycellum circle. Its thick white so cant be cobweb. I say 3 weeks before entire jar is done. The large bowl will take maybe 4-5 weeks

Sorry, that's already been invented. It's called the PF-Tek

"Sorry, that's already been invented. It's called the PF-Tek"


is it different enough to have its own name or is it nothing more than a "modified" pf tek? an analogy could be said if someone uses the pf tek, but instead of verm, he uses "something" else thats just as good as verm, would that deserve its own tek?


"I think it'll contam before it gets fully colonized."


never had a contam so Ill take my chances. even the 1/2 pint jars that took 6 weeks to colonize didnt contam. accroding to my math, the odds of this contaming is only slightly higher than the pint jars. i calculate itll take 5 weeks for EQ to colonize it.


lets do the math:

I have 9 and 20 ounce jars with EQ. the mycellum grows an inch in all directions each 3 days. so therefore a tall skinny jar and a short wide jar with equal volumes, the wide jar would colonize faster. The furthest part is what I measure, since the mycellum would conlonize all closer points by then. in this case, the height of the said containers takes the longest and since the bowls are as tall as the 1/2 pint jars, why would it take much longer?

have fun with that. Almost every newbie has had your idea, but strangely there are no teks written up on it.

Anno does the PF-Tek in drinking glasses but he doesn't call it the Anno Tek
Why bother modifying the PF-Tek? Just use a real substrate, that isn't 80% rock.

"theoretically the fastest container for colonization would be a perfect sphere"


true, also known as a fishbowl, but theres little difference between that and a cylindar with its height and base equal.


"if you flip a thin tall jar on its side, it's magically wide, huh?"


but the opening does not change. the point is, the area furthest from innoculation site would take the longest. an analogy would be the flow of water in the pipes. if you stick a hose in the middle, the longer end takes longer to get wet. if the pipe is a T shape then which ever end is longest. you see?


"If it went 1 inch every three days in each direction, then all 1/2 pint jars would colonize in a few days."


my 1/2 pint jar is 5 inches, so thall take me 15 days to colonize.


"And why would it contam? you have alot more material that contams would just love to eat up- more nutrients = more chance of successful germination and contamination of the evil spores."

if I PC it for 90 min, all the nasties should die reguardless. there might be a problem due to the huge surface area of the top of bowl, but my aluminum foil should still cover it all.


" Whats better- 6 weeks of a big clumsy cake, or 2 weeks for a bigger, better one"


to be honest im doing the cake as an experment to try to prove it works as good just takes a a week longer. lets see I successfully pull the feat off with no contams and 4 week colonization time

also BRF is weak. no sense in trying to do bulk if its gonna be geh substrate and weak shrooms. but go ahead with yer newbie ideas.

"You've only grown once."

I innoculated 6 more jars on 11-11 so make this twice!

"In all your cultivation experience you've never had a contam."


thats right!


"A FISHBOWL IS NOT A PERFECT SPHERE YOU JACKASS!!!! "

I never said it was, but its speherical in shape.


"also BRF is weak."

I agree, no point in growing 50 jars, but one huge bowl is a different story LOL and besides I dont own a horse nor cow :frown:

Good call. There is nothing interesting about a slightly modified pf-tek.
Nice avatar cheif!

There so is advanced talent and luck in getting a 3 or even 5 pint bowl to grow using a highly modified verson of the pf tek! has any of you even tried any other containers besides 1/2 or 1 pint?
