Startin' a new grow!
    #1849980 - 08/26/03 12:21 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Hi all! I'm a noobie, but i have been reading through shroomery for a while, so I decided i'm gunna start my grow! I already ordered and got some B+ spores from ralphster, and i have some BRF, but im still waiting on the vermiculite (ordered it off the internet). I'm using kerr and ball 1 pint jars and i'm steam sterilizing. But I have one question about the syringes. Do common syringes measure in mLs? cause mine does. What is the comparison to a mL to a cc?
thanks :mushroom2:

a cc is a cubic centimeter, which also happens to be one mL. i believe that 1cc of water also has a mass of 1g, but don't quote me on that.

please tell me yer joking KuSsH!  that or your grandma REALLY should retire!  :lol:

but YES, pints take FOREVER to colonize, but don't give up on them even if they seem stalled.  just make sure to loosen the lids after a couple weeks.  the mycellium will grow along the sides of the jar at first.  then they will fill in the middle before finishing the bottom.  this is the point at which they may seem stalled.  to increase colonization time, add a 5th inoc point in the middle of the lid.

As previously stated acording to physics 101 1 mili litre of water has a mass of 1 gram and occupies 1 cubic centimeter of volume.But you already knew that .

lol...i think kussh wants the guy to either colonize super fast with 5ccs per jar or only use 1/5th of a mL (which ain't jack shit worth of solution) per jar...

sorry kussh...yer granny's probly a nice woman but i don't trust the measurements from anyone who's 60 years or older...

BrainFarmer,
I have purchased 1 pint jars also. I was thinking instead of going back to the store and buying more jars, I would just fill them half full and have a thicker dry(non-nutrient) vermiculite layer on top??
What do you guys think?

Hey shroomidel,
I just sampled me first B+ from my first grow w/the guy who hooked me up w/the genetics. I did it poor man's style (steam, like you, but got pint jars and am getting a pressure cooker and bird seed this weekend!) I had great results! I got 6 g. off of two small casings that collonized and fruited WAY faster than my freind's cakes (in a humidity controlled dome w/ a digital therm/humid guage. He was blown away that they were ready before his! Go casing, that's the way. I can't wait to try birdseed/compost! I also got some PESA's and me friend's Koi samui (Am I spelling that right? prob not) are going to be ready soon as well. We are going to trip[ our asses of on Labor Day! I saw your thread and it inspired me to tell my story because I was in the same place you were when you posted only a month ago! I hope fungus grows out of every squre inch of your setup. Good luck and good trippin!

Also, my syringes have ml and cc both! According to it, 1ml = 1cc! Just thought I would add that!

This may help a little

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.

Yeah. The definition of a milliliter is one cubic centimeter of water.  :wink:  Such is also the (older) definition of a gram -- one cubic centimeter of water at STP.
