Give me your best start to finish teks please!
    #25252892 - 06/06/18 09:40 PM (2 years, 10 months ago)

After a winter of failed attempts I need to start over.  I tried many different methods and don’t have a single mushroom to show for it :frown:
I am stubborn though and am starting over.  I just ordered blue meanie and golden teacher and an agar kit from **********.  Thought the agar kit would be bomb proof to give me a good start.
****There are a couple of really old posts showing start to finish, asking again in case there are newer teks****
So I can learn what I am going to use specifically, and not get side tracked by so many different methods, I’m looking for someone to tell me specifically which teks they would use for the whole process.  At this point I don’t give a shit about cost, I can order what I need, and I do have a pressure canner.  I will be eternally greatful!

How'd ya fail all winter?  Not sterile?

Multispore master spawn to further jars or strait to manure or coir and bulk that bitch.  Easy peezy!

Things get complicated if you let it.  Personally I have little patients for criminal activity.  It takes a lot of clear vibes and calm nerves.

I finished a first successful grow with:

Patsywhyte’s Easy Agar Tek

Impossibly Simple Whole Oat Tek

Tic Tac Toe Agar

How Spitball prepares CVG

and

Making Shoeboxes

Lots of ways to go about it, but this worked for me.

Read to understand the theories.  Not knowing the theories makes the practices all the more difficult.

I think you’re very right.  Just overwhelming all the info and some of it is conflicting.  Was like a hummingbird on red bull zipping around to all the teks

Agar wedge to 4 Step easy Rye

Spawn rye to Franks simple coir


Make a shoebox

Step 2 and 3 kinda intermingle

Dude i hope you didnt got syringe from that vendor, i didnt try their print, and will not, but their syringe are total garbage  :argh:

You can take a look at my grow log by clicking the link in my signature for all the details, but if you going with syringe from that vendor since the beginning, thats prolly why you didnt saw a single mush yet from your grows.

Just a heads up. Were heading into summer soon where your sterile technique is gonna be put to the test. Some people knock out a few grows in winter and early spring and think they're hot shit, then summer comes a long and suddenly everything they make contaminates.

I personally like the "let's grow mushrooms" videos.  The thing that matters most to you for making a shoebox or a tub grow is Clean Spawn.

Spawn is whole grains colonized by mycelium. We break up the colonized grains and mix it with a pasteurized substrate. Each grain acts like it's own little 'mushroom seed' and inoculates a point in the substrate.

I recommend franks WBS (wild bird seed) tek for first time spawn creators. Make sure you have a fine strainer for the seed though, you don't want that going down your drain.

Shit Seb, don’t say that! I went with them because shroomery recommends them.  Well if this goes wrong I guess I’ll find a new source.

Haha!  I found out about the WBS while straining and picking out the sunflower seeds.
Why is summer worse?  Pollen in the air?  Higher temps?
Also, who does the let’s grow mushrooms videos?  Looked on youtube and there are pages of videos with the same title.

Both. A lot of bacterial and mold contamination can lay dormant at temps in the high 60s and mid 70s. A lot of people get away with bad sterile technique during the winter and then temps rise and suddenly those mold spores that fell in, that normally would germinate, suddenly have really warm temperatures and there's more of them to boot.
