My 1 week old PF jars, How do they look?
    #1750404 - 07/26/03 11:39 AM (14 years, 29 days ago)

Hi everybody! Well this is my first adventure in growing. Here are some pics of my jars taken yesterday, 7/25/03. I only started four in case I mucked up. They seem to be doing excellent. Inoculated on 7/18/03, its only been 1 week and two of the jars are allmost covered. The other two seem to be right on track with the normal, 1/2 covered. I'm using pretty much the straight PF TEK other than the incubation temps Im keeping at 81*F. The first pic is one side and the second pic is of the other side of the jars. No sign of anything funny looking, contam wise. By the way, if my jars were contaminated, wouldnt it have shown by now? Just wondering. So, how do they look?

They all look very well! congradulations! I don't see any signs of contams, and yes, according to Stamets, as the mycelia grows it releases antibodies into the substrate that prevent other spores / bacteria from growing. They also use up the nutrients quickly. Thatis why it is so important to have every variable (moisture levels, incubation temp, etc) correct, so that the p. cubensis mycelia has a good foothold, and no other nasties start to grow. Good job!

By the way in case your wondering, Thai Koh Samui T3 is what your lookin at. This was my choice to try first. This is supposed to be a potent strain. Can anyone verify that?

Theres one thing thats bothering me though. There is condensation building up on the insides of the jars but its not collecting on the bottom. Is this ok or is it harmful?

I thought so. The condensation didn't seem to be hurting anything. It surely hasn't slowed them down. This is so exciting! I havn't had this much fun in years! Cant wait to reep the fruits!!

I was thinking of casing two of the cakes with just vermiculite but im not sure about contams. If I do I'm at least going to sterilize the verm in the microwave. I would love any tips on how to case, I've read alot about the supposedly bigger yields. Is it true? Does it get contams easier?

might as well learn to case NOW.....
you will be doing all casing in the future :smile:
its not that much harder, yeilds are better, it prepairs you for more complex teks that require casings...
it teaches you to be clean...

yea casing does give you higher yeilds, and its not that hard to do. casing with straight verm should be fine. good luck

  I never tried strait verm. I stick with the 60/40 coco coir / verm and I had to waste 3 casings before having success. 

Don't make the mistake of not sterilizing the bottom verm layer!  I sterilize everything in the PC. Seems to work great!

What are the size of these jars? Less than a half-pint? You'll probably need 2 of em to make a small casing.  You should keep the 2 others and birth them in a terrarium.  It's the best thing to do if you don't wanna risk to lose everything.  Once your cake is fully colonized, it won't contaminate until 2 or 3 flushes assuming you use a clean terrarium and add a little H202 when dunking (if you want to dunk before birth).

Now that you know how to grow mycellium without any problem, do more jars!!

good luck!
