PF tek Results?
    #1584012 - 05/28/03 04:54 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hello,

Of course, like any newbie, im probably asking a question that has been answered time and time again, i am sorry. Me and my friend are planning on growing some "cakes" using the PF tek. I am curious, how many mushrooms should we expect to get(DRY WEIGHT) per 1/2 pint cake? and 1 pint cakes?(twice as much i assume, but you never know with shrooms)

thank you for your time,

K

Grow Log
Tek : PF
Strain : South American [SA]
Spores : Came from homemade prints. 36 total jars to be injected.
Substrate :Brown Rice Flour [BRF] and Vermiculite [Verm]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10:15 PM 3/4/03 : Project is started. Jar prep is just putting small holes in the lids for the spore syringe and then taping them closed until inoculation. Tape used is the standard black electrical tape. First batch of jars is mixed. The mix used is 2 parts verm, 1 part water, and 1 part brf. [ This mix is the max fruiting formula by PF.] Mix is put into 1/2 pint canning jars lightly, not packed in, and left it airy. Put substrate in until it reaches the threads of the jar, then add dry verm the rest of the way.
Jars are PCd at 10psi or 240f for a period of 45 minutes. Then jars were left to sit overnight to cool.


8:39 PM 3/5/2003 : First batch of jars injected. (24 jars)

10:04 AM 3/6/2003 : Incubator is running to low 77F. Going to turn it up today.


5:45 PM 3/6/2003 : Second batch of jars is in the PC will be injected tomorrow. Turned up incubator runs at 83F. 86F is the best and if the incubator is 83F and myc growing in the jars is suppose to create a little heat I figure this should work out well.

1:11 PM 3/7/2003 : Second batch of jars is done. (12 jars)

12:10 PM 3/9/2003 : Jars are doing good, no signs of contams


2:54 AM 3/19/2003 : Tape removed from the holes today and coffee filters put over the top of the jars for added protection. Holes were opened so the CO2 in the jars could escape. I gave 12 jars to a friend who kept fucking up. 24 jar?s about 75%done.


12:13 PM 3/22/2003 : Well it's Saturday and the jars will probably be done by the 25th. So it was 36 jars. 12 were given to a friend, 24 done by Tuesday.

10:26 PM 3/23/2003 : 15 jars were done enough to put into dunk. I dunk and cold shock before birthing and after every flush. The other 9 jars have a spot the size of a pea that has to be covered so I'll do those on the 25th.


7:17 PM 3/24/2003 : 15 jars put into the pod. Put in and put a layer of moist verm on top. With geolite I just put the cakes on it. With some other chambers I put the cake on a lid filled with verm. This is done to give the shrooms on the bottom and the top of the cake some added moisture.
The other 9 jars just finished so I'm going to give them a couple more days to make sure the middle of the cake is done.


4:57 PM 3/27/2003 : 5 More cakes birthed today, 4 left going to do them tomorrow or 3/29/2003

3:58 PM 3/29/2003 : Well I lost another cake. My wife's little 1 cake pod made from a 2 liter and a small fish pump and a little geolite used up her last cake so I gave her a SA to grow. The last 3 are in the cold shock dunk.
So the total is 36 jars done all colonized with no contams. 12 given to a friend, 1 to the wife, 23 mine

12:08 PM 3/30/2003 : Last of jars put in

12:02 PM 3/31/2003 : The first 15 cakes are pinning nicely and some have shrooms coming from the bottom.


11:01 AM 4/3/2003 : Things look to be going well.


1:02 AM 4/4/2003 : Took the first flush from four of the cakes. More will be done later today.


5/8/2003 : Total 23 cakes 164 grams dried.

total lifespan-dates are two months later.
Kottonmouth-use the search because as you said this has been asked many times, and you can see what other ppl said about it. and it is so variable that it could be anywhere from 3-10grams dried per half pint-its all on you.

thanks a lot for the help, i appreciate it.  Once me and my friend are done growing our cakes we will have pictures of our progress like Magash showed.  It's awesome that we can log on here and ask any question we want about growing shrooms, and they can be answered by people who know what the fuck their doing.  Fuck a mushroom kit, the PF tek definately is the best way to go for a newbie like me.  Once i get better at mushroom cultivation i would like to start growing using casing.  I want to grow mushrooms like they are shown growing in kits(where they are just fucking flourishing all over in the container, no cakes, just all shrooms growing everywhere out of the container.  I bet that yeilds a shitload more shrooms, probably the best way to do it huh?

Can anybody point me in the direction of where to look to learn how to grow in that manner(like whats the best guide to follow?), i know im a lazy fuck for not looking myself, but you know you have nothing else to do, so you may as well help a brother out :laugh:.  If you want to prove your point and not help me, i understand, i will learn one way or another eventually.

thanks again though :laugh:
