What to do??? PF Tek
    #24673281 - 09/30/17 07:47 PM (3 years, 7 months ago)

Hi everyone, this is my first post so forgive me if anything isn't correct but we just need someone's advice on what to do in our situation. This is our first time growing mushrooms from a golden teacher syringe we got from a shroomery sponsored source.  Right off the bat we fucked up and got 1 pint jars when the store didn't have half pints, and we noticed the needle they sent us was really short and barely made it past the verm layer. We inoculated them on september 2 and noticed the first growth about a week later. Since then, 2 of the 10 jars got contaminated and 4 of them were taking a little longer to start growing. now we have 2 jars at almost 100% colonization that have a couple inch or so long pins growing in vitro and 3 or 4 others with pins that are at less than 70% colonized. We have everything for a SGFC ready to get set up but there's still other jars that aren't done colonizing and haven't started pinning yet. We've been keeping the temperature around 75-80 with a couple hours of sunlight through the blinds for a few hours out of the week. we just need someone with experience that could help us figure this out.

I would just wait until a jar gets to 100% an then birth it I usually birth when i seen pins but that's in 1/2 pint jars but just birth them whenever 1 gets to 100% the invitro pins will be fine but try to get you some 1/2 pints and good luck

Yeah as you clearly know that is one of the potential problems with using pints for PF Tek. They don't all need to be birthed at the same time so you're fine to go ahead and leave
the still colonizing jars a bit longer to do their thing. The jars that are near 100% should be birthed and just wash off the un-colonized parts as you're doing the dunk. If the ones
around 70% haven't flat out stalled then perhaps give them a little longer, or again just wash that portion off and dunk.

If you want to use a steam bath half pints are what you need. Pints need to be PC'd as they are harder to get hot enough in the middle.

Research "spawning mushrooms to bulk." The ability to perform grain to grain transfers makes it a very efficient method. I personally started out doing "bulk work" with spawn bags and a syringe. Now I have plenty!!! The "PF Tek" method is however a very time tested way that many have great success with, innoculating grains and then spawning to bulk using substrate was just easier for me.

just wait it out. if you want to tell if they are still colonizing, take a sharpie and make an outline of the mycelium, if it grows past the line they are still going. And you can put colonized cakes in the sgfc as they become ready.
