Just a couple of questions before my first grow. I'm going to try the PF tek. On the supplies, because of family members coming to stay, I'm not going to be able to start the grow until the first of the year.So I'm going to get stuff item by item. Will the Perlite,Verm,BRF be all right If I buy them and they sit in the garage or my closet? I was planning on using the bag tech to inoculate, looks super easy and added stealth from the old lady is a plus, any thoughts or special supplies? Lastly lighting. What do I need? the pf tek videos don't go into the topic very much. Thanks for the info. and as always, Go Phils!  - Lenny

Maybe you should talk to your old lady first. Not to get personal or anything but that doesnt sound like a very smart/nice thing to do..

You can store any of those materials indefinitely man.

Get yourself a (preferably clear) plastic bin for fruiting in, a 6500 K fluorescent light bulb, and some consent from the old lady.  Happy new year.

These materials aren't going to go extinct. Why not buy the materials when your old lady will let you? :wink: (sorry couldn't help myself).


Just FYI, doing all of this is pretty simple--especially the PF tek. I don't know what kind of family situation you have, but you can easily do all of this in a closet. You can even buy pre-sterilized jars online.

If you're going low-budget, then sterilize your own late at night. It's going to take 3-4 weeks to incubate and colonize a jar, and after that you can shove the cakes in a tupperware container in your closet. Just keep an eye on them 3 times a day.

But even once you DO make mushrooms...how will you take them if your family is always around looking over your shoulder???

In regards to the OP's OL: my former GF was strongly anti-drug, but pro-mad scientist.
She got a huge kick out of the whole thing, once she saw it- but she didn't see anything until I had fruits. I talked to her about it in a sort of general and unbelievable way.
"Yeah, I was reading about it on the 'net. You make these jars see, with grain and fancy lids. And then you shoot in the stuff, and leave it alone. Then you mix.. " and her eyes started to glaze over a bit and she tuned out.

So yeah- preclearance is probably good, but there's nothing wrong with wanting to maintain a low profile.
As far as that goes: sclerotia.

You make it all possible. Doesn't it feel good?

Thanks for the info. I can handle the old lady, just always be lived in letting a sleeping dog lay.

sclerotia?? what's that? 6500 K fluorescent light bulb? I'm planning on fruiting in a closet with no light socket. What are my options as far as a portable lamp? If I bought pre-sterilized jars and inoculated via bag tek does that eliminate the need to place in boiling water/pressure cooker?

Dammit I got stoned and forgot to ask when you buy the spores in syringe, how much normally comes in an average syringe? how much do I put in each jar? What if anything do you do with the left overs?
