completly lost
    #1063898 - 11/18/02 09:32 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I have recently purchased some soil, and some brown rice which is supposed to have prints in/on them. I purchased these from my local headshop.
I have a teranium and acess to canning jars.
In all of the guides here on shroomery the spores are shown on syringes and you have to shoot them into the sterile mixture.
So my question is do I just sterilze the jars? or put in all the stuff I have and then sterlize them?
I am completly lost on what to do and the guides/faqs aren't working quite right for me.
Thanks to anyone who can help.

Sounds like you have a PF jar? Try looking up info for the PF tek and see if that's not what you have going on.

You would need to mix the substrate, sterilise them, and then innoculate somehow. If you only have spores then you will need to get a needle and learn how to make a spore syringe Good luck!

uh...... if the headshop sold u brown rice flower with spores already in it... it should already be in a sterilized container im guessing, all ready to grow?? But that would be illegal for the shop to sell you.. so im guessing that u just bought plain old brown rice flower. the basics of growing are outlined in the faq.. and yes, spores come in prints or syringes, nothin else that ive heard of. The main idea behind growin mushrooms, is get a substrate (brown rice flower), sterilize it, then put the spores inside and let em grow. about a month of reading will be much better than running out and buying a bunch of useless garbage.

Im pretty sure that the prints are already on the rice.
It's in a clear bag with what looks like brown rice in it, and then their is a card in there that shows a picture of mushrooms and says "Indian eye cubensis"
The other package I have is what appears to be a bag of soil. Each one of these items costed me $20 with a total of $40. The store did sell a kit which I couldnt quite afford ($55) when I arrived at the store. It appeared to be all of the same stuff, but came in a tupperware with holes punched in it.
Should I put the two bags together in little jars and then sterlize?
then into the teranium they go?
I have read the faq's numerous times and think I understand them, except since what I bought didnt come with a syringe or print I'm just a little confused.

If the spores are already added then you MUST NOT STERALIZE. If you do you will kill the spores. If it is like you are explaining it to be then I would imagine that you just need to mix the two ingredients and add water, but you are bount to get contams. Sounds like you may have just wasted $40.

I would go back to the headshop you bought the stuff from and ask them for directions.
If they are selling a uniqui system or something confusing they should as a rule provide instructions, otherwise they are allowing newbies the opportunity to totally crash and burn.

sounds like you blew $40. If you could post some pictures of exactly what you have i'm sure we could help you. I'm confused on what you bought.

Sounds like you bought a knock-off of the Homestead EZ-Gro kit. A bag of rye berries with a spore swab suspended over them and a bag of compost. If that's the case, drop the swab into the berries WITHOUT OPENING THE BAG and shake it up, then incubate for about 2 weeks in the mid 80's in the dark. After the berries colonize, mix them with the compost in a tub with holes in the lid and you'll have shrooms in a few weeks.

I don?t know if that was a dig or a compliment, but it?s no secret that I love the kits... These though, NOT the EZ-Rip....



My latest shot (last week). More to come.

No dig at all, I was merely stating facts my friend.
You most deffinatelly and conclusively have the most experience with grow-kits.
I don`t think theirs anything wrong with grow kits.
From your results they seem to be awesome.

Is that an old picture or did you get another kit? Bought one of those about 6 months ago and it turn out beautiful.

I'm working on getting pictures of the bags up and hopefully will get them up later tonight or tommorow; the bags do have cotton type looking things on them which I assume are on there for moisture, but may have some other purpose?
I hope that I didn't waste the money, if that is the case I will just go back to the store and buy the whole kit and then use the stuff I have as a second batch.
thank you all for your replies so far they have been really helpful and hopefully I'll be growing and shroomin in now time.
:cool:

dude, don't go back and buy the whole kit, then you would have spent about a 100 bucks on worthless junk. do some reading and and it'll save you lots of money and frustration.

alright here are the pictures of what I have bought.

Here is some pictures of the "brown rice/spore" thing I have.
The first picture is a close up of the rice and the spore picture card.
In the second picture if you look to the top left, you can see the cotton type air thing. These are in a sealed bag that needs to be opened before I get to that actual bag.

here is some pictures of the soil I bought.



Note the second picture has a close up of the cotton type thing on the soil and the rice/spore bag.

Does anyone know what I am supposed to do with all of these things to get some mushies from them?
thanks

Well, it looks like tripmeister was bang on.

In the small white bag would be the Spore Swab......you somehow have to get the swab out of the bag and drop it onto the substrate.

whatever u do, dont pierce/open the main bag or u will contaminate the whole thing.

*******************
the second lot of pictures i am lost on......the cotton pad on that one just looks like a hole so the substrate can breath. You need to ring the headshop up and ask.
