Sucess Story!!
    #1107539 - 12/03/02 05:15 PM (15 years, 8 months ago)


I just wanted to give all the newbies and prospective newbies a bit of encouragement. I am into the harvesting stage of the PF Tek and I'm glad to say that approximately 35 days after receiving my syringe from Fanaticus, I have harvested enough you know what to last me for at LEAST 6 months and even have enough to give out to friends. A few tips that I learned...(1) the smaller the incubation jar the better. I started using 1 quart jars and the problem I had was contamination always set in before the jar could fully colonize. I now use 8 oz. jelly jars (Ball) and they colonize fully within 10-15 days; (2) when putting the substrate into the jars, try to keep the substrate as loose as possible so the mycelium can penetrate the substrate more quickly and effectively. For my harvesting chamber, I went to Walmart/Target/Kmart and bought 1 gallon plastic see-through containers (about 25 inches high) and simply added about 2 inches of perlite and a quarter inch of regular tap water. I just started drying them naturally on my window seal above the kitchen sink. The whole thing worked like a charm! Feel free to email me for any questions.....From Houston, Texas.

What was the light cycle you used?

Well, obviously for the incubation period, zero light. After putting them in the growing chamber, simply placed them on a large windo seal I have in my living room. But after a cold spell came in, I put them on my bathroom counter top and leave the recess lighting above on all day and all night to add a few degrees extra heat. Hope that answers your question...
