Honey ( or Karo )
    #1938600 - 09/21/03 08:45 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

The basics: optimal ratio 5% honey/sugar and 95% water. For 100ml of water this is about 5 mil of honey. Even simpler, for 100ml of water use ~1 tsp of honey. I use 1/2 pint jars. You can use a regular metal lid and band and pop a nail hole in the lid or use a plastic lid with a septa port (for syringes, self-healing). If you use the metal lid just put a couple pieces of duct tape over the hole. Put the water in HOT. This helps the honey mix in. Drop in 2 marbles (used to break up mycelium). Add the honey. Close jars and shake till well mixed (no unmixed honey, will look like very light piss). PC at 15 pi1 for 10-15 minutes (not too long or sugar carmelizes). Let cool. Innoculate. If using metal lids with duct-taped holes make sure you have a piece of duct tape handy to cover the hole immediatley after innoculation. Incubate. Check/Shake every 24 hours. Should be ready within 3 days of innoculation. 4 at most. Use what you need and refrigerate the rest. You can keep a culture alive for a very long time like this. Makeup some syringes full of sterile water so you shoot the water into the jar and then suck it back up. This way the jar really never runs out. When the culture starts to wear thin (usually around 10 syringes for 100ml of culture) just use one the culture syringes to innoculate a fresh jar of honey water. Also, healthy mycelium in honey water looks somewhat like stringy cotton and will break up rather easily (don?t forget those marbles!). Contams are powdery and sit on the bottom and kick up like a dust cloud when shaken. Hope that helps

Fun time

The strain is Mikado.

mostly indica. The Mikado is a quick maturing, large-yielding strain that's predominantly Indica, but with a long jagged single leaf with pattern. Under the 18 hours light, the stems and leaves are coated with crystal. The female plants show hairs making sexing a breeze. Liked for its long-lasting, playful high, Mikado can be enjoyed 45 days after flowering is initiated. Perfect for a sea of green.
Height 5 feet Flowering time 45 days Yield 10 0z Harvest outdoor Sept 30

I think of going to the grave without having a psychedelic experience, like going to the grave without having sex. It means that you never figured out what it was all about. The mystery is in the body, and the way the body works itself into nature.

It needs not be said, but mag...yer the shit! is that a straight verm casing on the aluminum pans? why no casing on pf looking jars? my karo jars are taking like 4 days to get whispy strands of myc near the bottom. slower than yer discription. is this OK? what is best way to identify contams in karo? smell? sight? speed of colinization? Also I have read the teks and some ppl inject peroxide into colonized karo jars. Is this nessacary or even reccomended?

thanks and kickass mang!

1. Yeah the casing is strate verm.

2. Nothing on the jars, it was before I came up with dunk and roll.

3. Yeah it's ok. Always give or take a few days on stuff. Nothing is ever without it's little twists.

4. I find that sight is the best. Anything growing but those little white strands isn't good.

5. To be honest I've never injected peroxide into a jar and I can't honestly answer it since I've never heard good or bad about it. I don't like to answer when I haven't tried it myself even if I've read about it.
