PF Tek - First try
    #11321863 - 10/26/09 01:14 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I inoculated 12 half pint jars with the alacabenzi strain 3 days ago. They're in a bathroom of my house that I don't use at all. I have a small heater in the room that keeps the room between 79 & 80 degrees. The thermometer in there has a 24 hour history to track that.  I used home made brown rice flour with a little extra water, as directed by the PF Tek instructions. I got home tonight to find mycelium growing in 5 jars already!!! F-ing stoked!!!
My terrarium is already built but not tested. I'll do that several days before I start birthing the cakes.  It's a filtered, positive pressure setup. I'm using an aquarium pump in a filtered chamber to force fresh air up & through a layer of perlite. I'm figuring that when I test it, if it doesn't work right, it will be easy to convert to a shotgun setup. I want to try to avoid that, however, because I live in a very old house in a humid area. I am not confident that I can avoid contamination with that method. I'll post updates & pics as this progresses.

Seems to be going smoothly so far. I spent a lot of time researching beforehand, so I think I'm fairly well prepared.  My jars look just like many on this site, so hopefully they'll grow well. If I have any questions though, I'll definitely post them.

In this hobby if you don't do research you're almost bound to fail. You have to have the theory down before you spring into action, and then finely develop your technique.

Thanks for all the encouragement.  I figure worst case scenario, I can refine my technique & get another syringe. I'm hoping to trip on X-mas day.  I also have about 3 cc's left in my original syringe in case a few jars get contaminated. I should be able to inoculate a few more if necessary.

Make an LC and have unlimited innoculations.  You could make three with that amount one of those will be clean for sure

Quick update. Everything is going smoothly. Jars are about 3/4 finished. No contams so far. hopefully I can birth them in another week or two.  Got the LC stuff. Haven't started that yet. On the back burner for now.

Make sure you wait a week after full colonization for the myc to consolidate.

Also a very simple LC tek.

Post up some pics :wink:

Please forgive me. My good camera died so all I have is my cell camera. I have birthed all the good cakes. 11 of 12 made it. The 12th got contaminated with the black nasty.  Oh well. They're all growing soooo fast. It's crazy.  I ate 1 small one a couple weeks ago, just to see. Got some decent CEV's. Headed up for about an hour, Peaked for about 2 & came back to normal in the 4th hour.  On 12-3, I tripped with 2 friends. We each ate about 4 med sized shrooms. Not sure about weight since they weren't dry. We all experienced intense CEV's, body high, & euphoria. I'd place the trip at a high level 2 to low level 3 range. Again, the peak was during hours 2 & 3 with hour 1 being the trip up & hour 4 being the come down. All three of us experienced about the same trip level & duration.  I'm ok with the 4 hour time frame, but it seems kind of odd since most people report 6 hour trips. They are growing faster than I could possibly hope to consume them. I guess the first run must be called a complete success. Btw, the file names are also the dates the pics were taken. I'll post more soon since the growth is much more now than it was on the 2nd.

I shut down the project last night.  Final tally was 63 grams, dried. For a first time grow, I'd call it an overwhelming success. It accomplished exactly what I set out to do. I'll probably do another grow next winter. I have enough to explore the other side for now!!!  I also split 8 grams last week with a friend. We both broke through. It was amazing.  These little guys are POTENT! Thanks to everyone for your help & suggestions & thanks to Shroomery for all the research material. This is one of the best & most informative forums I've ever used & I definitely won't be a stranger.
