My first P. cubensis grow is still in progress. 12 BRF jars inoculated with EQ a month ago. 2 showed no signs of germination and 1 got contaminated. I feel that 1/12 jars contaminated is pretty good for a first time P. cubensis grower, but I don't think I put enough spore solution into the 2 jars that never germinated. If this doesn't work out, I'll always have my azures to go back to.

In the middle of my first grow right now. Two weeks into colonization (PF-Tek) and all of my jars are about 95% complete. No contams whatsoever.

First time I grew.. having no knowledge of the shroomery or PF-Tek, got 12 out of 12 contams... tried shroom wizard's tek, I wasn't being sterile enough... 2nd grow...I discovered the PF-Tek, and other mod's.. no problem's w/ contam's problems what so ever, grew beautiful mushrooms. Fun thing about this hobby is there are so many ways you can cultivate mushrooms, get ureself a preasure cooker, and you can do just about anything.

If you failed on your frist grow, could you state whether or not you used a pressure cooker? I am going to start mine soon, I have a PC coming from eBay but I'm a bit anxious. Thanks.

If you have a PC, you're pretty much in the clear. Even with steam sterilization I've gotten no contams. BTW, my first three attempts actually were done with Myco-Bags. None of them worked.

gf's first grow:
innoc. 12 jars pf tek w/ Ausrailian strain from the keeper (now she knows that was a big mistake)
7 of 12 colonized/ing well
2 have been birthed into large igloo cooler
remaining jars are between 90%-98% colonized
she steamed steralized on lowest boil possible for 1 1/2 hrs
she recomends using a gas stove if no PC--muchmuch easier to control
