Will they survive?
    #2379768 - 02/26/04 03:16 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hey guys,
I've been lurking for a while but couldn't post because hotmails spam filter was eating my registration forms. Anyways, 2 days ago, I attempted a small cultivation process. I had 12 quarter pint jars, organic brown rice flour, vermiculite, and 10ccs of equadorian p. cube spores. Anyways, reviewing the PF Tek, I made a bunch of errors that I want to know if they will prove fatal without waiting weeks. First off, the jars were still slightly warm to the touch, rather than cool when I inoculated them. second, I only inoculated through one hole in the jars, and the needle didn't go deep, it was just through the jar lid. However, there was no dry vermiculite/brf at the top, it was unison through out, and I used a lot of solution, at the end I had 3ccs of my 10cc syringe left. I don't care if its going to take the mycelium longer to colonize the whole jars, I just want to know if theres a good chance that most of my jars will pull through.
Thanks,
P2K1

maybe, without the layer of dry vermiculate on top you're at a higher risk for contam. it kinda depends on how warm the jars were, if you could pick em up and shit then they were probably cool enough. The fact you innoculated only one hole won't make a huge difference, it will just take longer to colonize because the spores are less dispersed. Basically you'll probably do alright here, maybe a slightly higher contam rate but otherwise they'll pull through. It will just take time, and more of it most likely.

they were likely too warm but its hard to say. only time will tell, but i would really suggest using a verm layer next time, and also i think quarter pints are pretty damn small. i use half pints for cakes.. anyways just my two cents

Thanks for the responses,
After a long time of travelling around getting my supplies (No car) I had already wasted weeks, so I said enough of enough, I went with the quarters because I couldn't find any larger, figuring it was just as well for a first experiment. I was using a guide from clandestine.txt I downloaded off of textfiles.com, it was uploaded last year so it seemed recent enough. I didn't find out about having a dry layer of vermiculite until after I did it. I could easily hold the jars, they were merely warm instead of cold, and there was no longer evaporation on the sides like there was after sterilization. I don't care if it takes longer to colonize the jars, I just care that it works, and I don't mind if I lose a jar or 2. Ive got 3ccs left? What to do with it? Should I multiply the PF Tek formula in one of the larger mason jars I found downstairs?

Use the Karo tek, it will turn your 3cc's into 300cc's....

Scroll down a bit to see how it is supposedly "perfect"
Edit:
Do I need to use corn syrup? Are other substances acceptable, e.g. honey, maple syrup?

honey is no good, read that article you found. honey contains protein and wax which will clump up and shit. I dunno about maple syrup but I'm skeptical. Just get some corn syrup, its cheap, and available at almost any grocery store.
