Findings after 4 months...

Now that I'm coming up to my 4th usage of the PF tek (all fruited in the PMP), I can't convey how much  :heart:The Shroomery :heart: has helped me out: Keeping me knee-deep in fruits that are some of the tastiest specimens I've encountered,  ever!  (being very succesful with; Transkei, my personal favorite; Blue Meanies, the Ralphster's P.C. strain; Koh Samui Super Strain-THE and T3-Ralphsters; and Ralphster's South American)

With that out of the way, I'd like to share some observations to possibly help some others out :thumbup:

Speeding up the colonization process has to do with keeping the substrate as aerated as possible (best way I've found is to use medium-large grade vermiculite and to not pack it down, except for shaking to level-off before putting in the last .5-1" dry barrier) and keeping the temperatures consistently in the 80's.  Using more than 1cc worth of solution helps a great deal to speed things up, but it's not entirely neccesary (and it's quite wasteful, imo).
I've gotten colonization times down to 13 days using 3cc of solution (Blue Meanies) per jar, keeping the innoc. holes open (no tape and jars up-side-down), in 85? temperatures.  Time from innoc. to first fruits was 27 days (could have harvested sooner, but allowed to sporulate).

Also, one way I've found to revise the Dunk/Roll tek is to first dunk the 100% cakes in 1:10 h202:h20 for 24 hours, then bury into sterilized 60/40 coir/verm for a day or two.  Once taken out, there's a nice casing layer on the cakes that pin like  craaaazy and shoot shrooms out from all angles.  Best so far from one cake was 56 fruits.

Terribly sorry if any of this is just repeated blabber, but I just thought I'd share my findings with the collective.

Have fun :thumbup:

Nice post, dood. Good stuff for the masses.

BTW, I like the dunk 'n' roll mod. Might just have to give it a go.

I'm so ready to start growing. I've shroomed twice and loved it to no extent. --Mindgames
