PF Classic Neglect Questions...
    #1436604 - 04/07/03 05:17 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

OK, now, please dont refer me to other sites, ive read all about it, Im interested to see what all the friendly folks on the forum think about this, and I would really like any suggestions for improvement! So heres my situation: I have 1 jar of PF classic, fully colonised. Last night I scraped off the top dry verm layer, and put the cake into a tub of faucet water to dunk overnight. It was in the water for about 11.5 hours. While it was soaking, I fully cleaned the jar it was in, sterilized it with alchohol, the whole works. Overnight I lowered the temp in the incubator to 75*F, from 85*F. I took the cake out of the water, lightly dabbed off the moisture from the outside with paper towells, and put it back into the jar. Now the jar is sitting in the incubator at 75*, with the closet light on. Theres about 8 feet between the light and the jar. I have a flourescent light that I can use, and one of the main things I was wondering about is if it would be better for me to have the flourescent light on it, instead of just the closet light. The flourescent light could sit at any distance from the jar, im sure. So let me know what you think about it, any suggestions are more than welcome! (Sorry about the super long message!)

My neighbor thinks you are missing the point of the Neglect tek. The idea is to leave it in the jar, forget about it and let it grow. You don't need to keep fucking with it.

All the jar needs is a little ambient light to initiate pinning. The source of light does not matter much.

And I'd hardly say I messed up the neglect tek....I just did what mycotopia said, and they recommended dunking, so thats what im doing. and the whole reason im fruiting in the jar is becasue i dont have have a fruiting chamber. why else would i be trying to do it this way? believe me, if i could do it outside the jar, i would.

The neglect tek is a waste of time. Don't you even own a plastic bucket ?

yea, i do, the problem is i do not have the luxury of havingt his out in the open, it has to be fairly incognito, so plastic bucket wouldnt work. believe me, ive thought over this.

No you did not do what they said. They said to dunk it in between flushes. You supersoaked the hell out of that cake.

Doesn't sound like a good idea. It's best to have a cake in an air-tight container while dunking. How clean was this tub?

You might get some contams from soaking it in that tub.

When I've done neglect jars I've just left them until the mushrooms
are ready for picking. Pulled the cakes & mushrooms out of the jar(sometimes
using a knife to help pry the cake out.) Picked off the shrooms. Rinsed the cake
under the Kktchen sink tap, stuck it back in the jar, filled it with tap water, weighed
the cake down with a piece of cork from a wine bottle, and stuck it in the fridge
for 8-12 hours. Then poured off the water, blotted the cake, stuck it bak in the jar,
and into a drawer or on a shelf or whatever.
