My PF TEK GOOD??
    #11186127 - 10/05/09 12:51 PM (8 years, 19 days ago)

ok im just going to right up to the inoculation.. first my equipment.. 10 1 pint jars, fine verm, Bobs red mill BRF, filtered water. cooking pot, ok so i mix 2 cups verm, 1 cup BRF and 1 cup water per basis. fill the jars up 1 inch from the top. wipe off the wet verm residue at the top then take dry verm and fill to the top. DO NOT PAD IT let everything loose. put lids on put tape over the holes then put 2 layers of foil on top... but in cooking pot with a cloth at the bottom to keep it from the bottom and not to crack. fill with water about 2 - 3 inches let it boil and steam for 1 hour 30 mins.. then take out and let sit for the nights or 6 - 10 hours.. then i take a reglaru bin cut out the one side of it and clean it.. then inside i will inoculate this is to keep the airborn contams out as much as possible.. keep in my my room i sprayed clorox stuff all over and turned all the fans off. then i take foil and tape off and inoculate towards the glass 1/4 CC per hole. or 1ML a jar..i let tape and foil off so it can allow for gas exchange.. let jars sit in room temp 75 - 85 and in a few weeks should see mycelium..

so what you guys think this good?? any suggestions.. im about to try for my 2nd time i failed completely my first time with no signs of mycelium! but i didnt follow all these directions either so maybe thats why..

It looks like you're going by the book this time. That's good.

There could be many reasons for failure. Could you tell us ways in which your first attempt differed from your second attempt? What did you use to inoculate, LC or spore syringe? Were the jars cool to the touch prior to inoculation? Did the temperature ever go well above 85 degrees? This is just a small brainstorm. You could try turning half of the jars over or loosely covering half with foil. Basically, experiment a little and figure out what works.

Most of all, be patient. Colonization from spores can take quite some time, especially at 75 degrees.

no my first grow i did some stupid stuff like taking a sterile syringe and injecting it outside in plain dirt! and i didnt even sterilze the needle to red hot after words... and the water content was way to high.. the spores may have been non viable.. no contams though.. i used a regular 10cc syringe

Make sure your using "MicroPore" tape, I don't know what kind your using... Also, I wouldn't take them out of the pot until your ready to knock them up. Don't even open up the lid... Just leave them be in there until you are ready. Regular lighter would work, but make sure you spray/wipe it down.
I bought a little lighter lampt at wallymart for like 1.99....
Also, I always kept my micropore tape on my jars. I kept the foil off, and never had a contam. I also never had a dry layer of verm on the top.
But just to be safe I'd say leave the tape on it because it cannot hurt. It's not like it will stop air from flowing.

Good luck man!!! Be patient! :smile:
