no growth in jars
    #1628674 - 06/12/03 12:58 PM (14 years, 15 days ago)

Hi, I Tried to grow shrooms using the Wizard's grow guide and I can't even grow any mycelium in the jars, any ideas why?

heres what I did:
mixed two 2/3 cups of organic rye flour with 8 cups of perlite with two
2/3 cups of water, boiled it in a big pot for 20 min. and 3 days later i
injected 3/4cc into the jars. it's now 6 days later and nothing is growing in the jars.

I bought the sprores from www.sporemagic.com

thanks, any information is generously welcome. please email crazytxdude86@yahoo.com

Are you sure your meant to use perlite? And the perlite / flour ratio seems a little off. I've never bought from that site before, it's possible the spores are crap.

Lol perlite... it's vermiculite dude... are you using this?

Shroom Wizard's Grow Guide

if you actually did what you said, read up and pick one of these when you start over...

Yeah man... useing perlite does seem a bit odd, as it does exactly the opposite of what you want, it releases water instead of retaining it like vermiculite.

And rye flour? Are you sure you don't want to be useing rice flour?

read the pf- tek and get your spores from a real vendor. this site has the pf tek under faqs at the top of the page.  www.nansnook.com has the original copie under archives then tek. i know if i can do it anyone can do it. try to learn how to swim before you jump in the deepend. :grin:

Those ladies who work at home depot are evil..... once when i was younger, i had my terrarium at a friends house, whos mom worked at Home depot, she found the cakes and terrariums and called the police who tried to charge my friend, but they couldnt prove shit, so we got away with it somehow.. i have no idea why....
what i am trying to say is:
DONT TRUST THE WOMEN WORKING AT HOME DEPOT..they are evil
