Stupid newbie questions
    #2447124 - 03/18/04 02:47 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

OK I'm brand new to mushroom growing, spent the last few days going over most of the FAQ's and reading posts and think I'm ready to get started.

On my first attempt, I plan on buying a dozen prepared jars from pfjars.com and spore syringes from sporesource.com.

Questions so far:

1. I plan on using the perlite method for humidification, do I need a drip shield with the perlite method?

2. How many syringes (12cc) would I need to properly innoculate 12 1/2 pint jars?

3. Am I better off just sticking with one strain for this first grow or should I try 2 strains for the variety.

4. What size cooler/rubbermaid box would I need to hold the 12 cakes, or should I break them up into 2 coolers?

5. If I decide to use only 6 of the jars at first, can the other 6 pre-prepared jars be kept frozen or something (to prevent contamination) until I'm ready to use them.

6. How long are the spore syringes good for, how should they be stored if not used right away?

1. No! Not if your not spraying.  Some droplets can build up on the top of your terrarium but usually theres no problem.

2. 1 :syringe:  You should use 1cc per jar.

3. 1 Strain

4. "Poor Man's Pod"

5. Ive never heard of freezing or anything.. id suggest using them as soon as you can.

6. They can be good for quite awhile. Storing them in the fridge is the best way, but NOT the freezer.
