Best way to cultivate?
    #2336049 - 02/15/04 02:45 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I am going to be ordering two syringes of golden teachers, two syringes of equators, and one syringe of Puerto Rican spores in one week. :mushroom2:  I was wonder which way is going to work the best to cultivate these shrooms? I have read many posts on different teks and am wondering which is going to work best for the least amount of money, and be easy for a newb like me to handle.  I am open to as many suggestions that you can throw at me, I AM THIRSTY FOR KNOWLEDGE! :nut:

If you don't have a pressure cooker, you should do the PF Tek. Otherwise, do what you want.

On second thought, if you don't have a pressure cooker, get a pressure cooker.

Dig the big sig.

I was reading about boiling the jars in a large pot for an hour or more, with a tight lid on it. But I was wondering (stupid question) do the jars have a chance of cracking in the heat? Also how much would a pressure cooker send me back?


p.s. thanx i made the sig. the other night, was thinking about changing it though

You can find them cheep on e-bay.

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.

You can get a Mirro 8 quart pressure cooker at walmart for $35 and it will do everything you need until you find out it you need a bigger one.
Its a good investment

Give us an approx. budget here... $50, $150?

One of the cheapest ways would be using the PF tek with some diluted coffee (experimental)and growing invitro, click here for more info .

If you want to do grains, large, quality PCs can be picked up off of ebay for around $40 including shipping. Get a cooker 12 quarts or larger because they can hold way more jars than the smaller Mirros.

Since I'm assuming this would be your first grow, doing casings with crumbled PF cakes would be cheap, easy, and have a low chance of being messed up. It yields better than cakes and doesn't require a PC.

Well is sounds like this PF Tek is going to work best for me, and yes this will be my first grow! EXCITMENT! :lol:


EDIT- forgot to mention my budget, well I would like to spend as little as possible but I will spent up to 100 maybe more.

id say forget the pc and get a humidifier, that way you want have to deal with spraying and fanning every couple of hours. If this is your first grow than let me tell you, spraying and fanning sucks. It is a huge hassle and spending 40 bux for a humidifier is the way to go, especially if you are using brf/verm. you can buy a pc after you know how to grow and want to start using grains. good luck on that.

I find the pmp (poor mans pod, which is told how to build in the faq) makes a far superior fruiting chamber then ever having to deal with the humidifier. As well as the whole setup costs as much as just the humidifier... but to each is own.
