yeah, there isnt anything that anyone is going to tell you here that is CLEARY outlined in a FAQ or in previously existing THREADS that can be found using the SEARCH function. especially since you are starting from scratch and are not trying to solve a new problem or propose a new concept.
read, read, read, sit on the can and think about what you read, then read more.
can this be locked?

Go buy the Mushroom Cultivator by Paul Stamets. Then incorporate the PF tek into it.

Hmmm...a fellow Overgrower.

Here ya go.

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.

Overgrow rules.

I learned everything I needed to know from this website, you should be able to, also. Just takes time, take the time, and you will be rewarded.

I never looked at the FAQ. I just used the 'Growing' section. It has basic & advanced cultivation Teks. I researched for approx. 2 months, before even buying any equipment. I have had NO contamination, but did frig my first 3 jars(just the sub).

Just keep reading, you'll get it!

lol, shit if you can grow the green you can grow a fungus fosure. :smile:
Go with Magash's grow log, wich is based on the pf tec. My friend just started growing too and found the volume of info OVERWELMING to say the least. I finaly convinced him to forget all the fancy shit and just focus on the pf tec. Follow the fundementals of STERILIZATION and TEMP. You do this and from everything I have seen, you will succeed. Also check out Magash's "poor mans pod" (do a search in the forums) my friend created one and it really takes the 'hard' out of fruiting. His cakes are pinning like crazy. (plus he used Magash's "dunk and roll" tec, also in the forum)
Good Luck!
