http://So i did things a little bit different in my first grow. i really was lazy in gathering my materials but i collected everything i needed. I Basically bought OBR (organis brown rice) insted of the flour becuase NoOne is healthy in this part of the country. so i decided to mix part verm. part rice and part water. i didnt have a proper PC so i just used a pot with a tight lid and a hole for a little steam to let through. i didnt want to buy spores for the simple fact that i didnt want to police knocking at my door, so i had a hippie friend come over and he let me choose the nicest looking DRY cap from a few Z's. and i said to hell with it. took the gills and sprinkled them into a mason jar. then i used poland spring water to hydrate the gills. within 5 minutes of the water being squirt in, the solution turned blue.i then PCed my 4 jars. inoculated 4 jars with 1ml. i thought to myself theres no way this will ever inoculate and colonise. but i had faith. about a week into incubation one far turned completely blue and every rice grain was covered. i proceded to toss it because it smelt like pennisulin. so its about 20 day in and i have colonsation! who would ever think that using non floured rice and not cooking it or anything and not even PCing the right way AND With a dry cap... no contamS!! i would deff. love some critisism and other info about this miracle!!!!!!

That's pretty crazy, I wouldn't have thought it would work either. Props to you.

Oh, and if you not in one the select states, California and Geordia..maybe another, then spores are completely legal.

No need for microSpore tape. You got a dry verm layer.

@agent47

yeah man i know!! i was psyched!

i went from walking down the street one moring to get fresh shit and i plopped it in a ecosystem i built.. HAHA what a disaster that was. it had bugs and all sorts of creatures in it. and funny thing was they must have been all tripped out because they were acting abnormal. Btw i find that the BRF method is extremely more easy,interesting,and informative.....

Happy Trips

@leopardMan

and what about using just whole rice? i didnt cook it tho, i didnt even let it sit.. i just batched it all right there. will that have an effect when birthing through fruiting because of lack of hydration?

Verm is there to retain water. Rice for nutes. So you should be fine as long as there are no contams.

its wierd because only one inoculation point has grown that patch. out of 4 jars, 8 points, i suceeded in one 1/8 ratio. and the one lucky jar happens to not grow any lower. it has just decided to strech its way around to the other side. is this due to lack of water?

FF is a much more experienced grower than me, so listen to him. He knows his shit. I don't think you will have moisture problems though but contams issue. As long as there is some water inside the jar you will be fine. But again this is only my take.

well i kinda thought that due to the fact that the rice was soft but still crunched.It was first time ya kno and i really was just throwing it together. it was all sterile and all but the rice seemed like it could use more water. But one thing i noticed was condensation on the inside of the jar. it could be due to the fact it incubates at 83... but yet again i really dont know much because it hasent become second nature yet.
