Mist the cakes directly.  No humidistat necessary.

the lids of my totes aren't clear, they're white. I couldn't find a clear size that would fit in my spot. it also gets to about 58 at night in there, but during the days its like 66-68. should I be worried? should I find clear lids? i can't position the light to the side due to the space

Clear would be ideal.  The temps are a little low so expect growth to be very slow.  Get a small space heater and bump those temps up a few degrees to about 72F, and growth will happen faster.

:whathesaid:

You are going to want to use a light with 6500 kelvin (color temperature of the light) or diffused natural day light. It is best if the intensity of the light is bright enough to penetrate the surface layer of your substrate to stimulate pinning just below the surface.

There are three distinct realities occurring simultaneously.

The first involves a single point or object.
The second involves that point/object's relationship with other points/objects.
The third involves their relationships in motion.

Great Work Ziran!

I remember back in 1999 when I first attempted the PF Tek. It was the original one (drip shield and all, no perlite!! Amazing that I got the few shrooms that I did).

Now the PF tek is updated and so much easier to follow (and have success with)... the dunk and roll, shotgun terrerium, and other evolutions have improved this tek 10 fold.

Thanks to all those who helped modernize this easy beginners tek! If I hadn't had success with it, I probably would've given up and not moved on to have the success with grains and agar that I enjoy today.

Ziran one note i think is worth adding since this is the best most recent pf tek.

When filling jars, they should be filled fluffy and full of air pockets. Not packed down with a spoon, finger or by hitting the palm of your hand on the bottom of the jar. Packing down the sub leads to additional weeks (even month)longer colonization times from the first signs of growth.

Pics from eats thread showing the light structure the sub should be like, to promote quick colonization

5. Load up our jars with our BRF-Verm Mixture to the band line. When loading them, don't pack the mixture down. It needs to be light a fluffy.





Changed step 5 of loading the jars to reflect fluffy loading.

Also corrected this section of the guide. One of my images broke apparently. Also fixed how much water to use with the 23 quart presto.

1. Place your trivet or metal rack (I use a combo of both) into the bottom of your PC and fill with 3 quarts of water for a 23 quart presto. (Refer to your manual if your PC is a different style.)







Also moved this text to correspond with the correct pictures.

Ziran said:
3. Add 1 cup of water to the mixing bowl and mix thoroughly.




God. That last update makes this guide 100% more readable. :happyclaps:

What's the yield comparison between leaving the cakes whole and dunking and rolling or breaking them down and mixing evenly with some sub?
