questionaire from a newbie
    #1866936 - 08/30/03 10:39 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Ok here is my situation, i have 7 spore sryinges, and i figure for a good result i could innoculate 42 jars (1 sryinge per 6 jars) For the best yield i plan on using the PF Tek, and some form of casing. I'm not too sure what kind of fruiting chamber would be the best. SO what im asking here is, what are some paramneters i should work with when innoculating 42 jars, what kind of fruiting chamber would be ample for that many jars, and if i should be aware of anything when doing so many. If somebody could help me out that would be great.

Shit man. Why so many? You can do what you want on the terrarium. I guess a big ass aqurium. Or four ten gallon aquariums. Good luck thats gonna be a bitch of a project. BTW one syringe is enough to do 8 jars.

well i figure, go big or go home, and its something to keep me busy. I've got many friends who love to eat the magical mushroom, so i guess it would be nice for all of us to have an abundant supply. Thanx for the quick response everybody, if anybody has any other tips that would be great.

if its your first time i would reccomend doing a smaller batch first to get the process down, just so you dont fuck up 42 jars (or 7 syringes)..because i know thats something i would do.

I started growing a couple of months back, and would take chinacat311's advice. You will most likely screw something up the first time, probably get a contam of some sort, or not get the casing right (too thin, too thick, too dry, too wet, wrong PH etc..)

Plus 42 jars is one hell of a lot of pressure cooking, I don't know how many PCs you have, but I only have 1 and I can do 4 jars, 70mins to cook up, same again to cool down. What I would do is work in batches of 6 a few days apart, syringes will keep for a while if stored correctly, this will spread out to workload and leave you will a constant rolling supply. If you space it right you will be taking prints just as you case a new batch.

PS: Thats gonna be a lot of shrooms don't accidentally break you brain :wink:

you can do half as much jars, spawn bulk and get twice as much fruits.
hell, given you have an abundant supply of poo and/or straw, you can just do a dozen jars and still have as much if not more fruits.

Yeah, I would agree with the others, don't do all 42 at pnce. I screwed up my first batch of 12 due to the fact I slightly miss read one step of the MMGG. Anyways I currently have 20 going great. Since I aim to do a 12 at a time I can see how you could easily be doing 42. My PESHaw aren't even pinning and I am already eager to start by PR and have several more prints on the way.....

In the event that you do decide to do all 42 I would really recommend using corn syrup (then you will never run out and will know if you technique is sound before starting the jars). Also I use the paturize and sterilize thechnique. This works awesome and allows you to do more than you could in a PC.

BTW: this has been the most helpfull forum ive EVER been on, and if anybody has any tips for me personally feel free to PM me. THANX.

My friend's suggestion is that you choose a good casing tek. Trying to fruit that many cakes would be a major headache, but they would all fit into several nice thick casings without too much trouble.

His personal favorite is coir and verm.
