List of Grow Supplies
    #1575178 - 05/24/03 10:08 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Hello everyone! I've been reading this forum and site for about the last month or so, and decided to give my first grow a shot. I want to do a couple casings of B+ strain on the standard PF Brown Rice Flour cakes. I've prepared a list of supplies I think I will need and any comments/suggestions appreciated.

12 Canning Jars (1/2 Pint)
2 Big Rubbermaid Tubs (for the water-heated incubator setup)
3 Small casing trays
Jiffy Mix
Vermiculite
Brown Rice Flour
Drierite Dessicant
Thermometer/Hygrometer from MycoSupply
Submersible Water Heater w/T-stat (is 50w enough?)
Some B+ Syringes

Again, any comments and suggestions are welcome. If I didn't give enough info about my grow, please PM or post. I have so many ideas and so much info in my head, it's hard to keep straight.

I don't know if you are trying to go the cheapest route, but if you are, you may want to look into one of these incubators. You can put one togther for about 15 bucks.

A thermometer is not completely necessary, though they are helpful.

And how are you going to sterilize your substrate?

Other than that, your list looks pretty good until you're ready to fruit.

jba6511: I assume you mean a layer of perlite on the bottom of the tank right?

Skikid16: Thanks for that idea! To sterilize, I was planning on just boiling the jars according to PF for about 2 hrs. Is that wrong, because I've heard so many things about pressure cookers? One more thing, why did you say "until I'm ready to fruit"? That implies that I'm missing something. Thanks again for the help.

fugu: What do you mean "you want some cake or case decide it. use pop corn to start"?

LOL-ya like fugu's comment is going to make sense to anyone-lmao. and 50w is more than enough. when you go to the store, there are guides on how much water you are heating to how much wattage you want, you wont need that much-thats for sure, since you will only have a couple liters-a gallon or two-to heat. steam sterilizing works, bu tyou will need a tight lid, and one hour with water going no more than half way up jars is more than enough. some say barely touching the jars or no more than an inch-whatever you'd like. follow the tek exactly and you will get shrooms-change it just the little bit and you 'might' fail. the foaf, and other foaf's on the shroomery have had 100% success with steam first time, then turned slack, or didnt do this or that the second time, and shit hit the fan-well, so to speak. also, everytime the foaf has used fresh verm and flour from the bag, there have been no contam probs-100% rate even with steam. but opened dry bags of verm were used later and resulted in slow growth, bad smells=bacteria endospores that can survive one hour of sterilization. so my advice use fresh, or just throw on a baking sheet for a half hour at 300. good luck and all the best to ya!

Thanks jakeholman. I'll do a bit more research on sterilizing the jars.

Looks good for incubation. As far as I see, you don't have a fruiting chamber on there, which is what the perlite is used in.

FunkyBudah:  I thought that if I cased, I didn't need the Perlite because the casing provides all necessary moisture.  I also planned on fanning out my chamber and possibly misting the walls a couple times per day.  If I'm wrong about that, PLEASE correct me cuz my brain is about to bust :grin:

not really-you want the mycelium to grow through the casing layer slightly to expose it to light for even pinsets, and the air still needs to be very humid. if you have a hygrometer than check to see if misting is enough, but perlite might be necessary-especially if you are fanning your chamber regularly-spraying wont do.

If you steam sterilize, then you need to do it for 60-90 minutes. When I used to steam sterilize, I liked to cover the lids of my jars with aluminum foil, to insure no water enters through the inoculation holes.

If you are casing, you don't NEED a terrarium, I've seen some good results with just covering the casing with seran wrap, and misting occasionally, but a fruiting chamber does make it easier, IMO.
