Has my pf tek gone bad?
    #25269325 - 06/15/18 07:32 AM (2 years, 6 months ago)

Its been about 10 days since I inoculated my pf tek jars.  This is my first time doing this.  They werent growing until I put the cabnet of jars outside every night.  Then I noticed a lot of growth due to the warm weather.  Anyway one of my jars has a kind of odd coloration.  Ill attach a picture here if it lets me.(edit* this forum wont allow jpegs)

If I keep letting it grow in the jar to see if it goes away it wont spread to the other jars right?  I should probably allow kt to keep growing?

Its definitely gone bad.  Its the only one that grew too.  This is my first time growing.  Is it ok to put the cabinet with my jars outside at night to take advantage of the warm weather or is this a way that will contaminate?

Ok, I threw away the bad jar and I took off the foil and tape.  I also put the cabinet in a spare bedroom with a heater where its around 80 degrees.  Ill get a thermometer tomorrow to make sure it doesnt get too hot.  Again this is my first time growing and I really appreciate yalls help.  Ive been watching a lot of videos and reading this forum.

80 is too high ! You want it in the lower 70s . Bacteria thrives at higher temps . Don't stress about it though, I made a TON of mistakes .. . Just keep reading and asking questions :smile: you'll be reaping the fruits of your labor in no time !

Those yellow cakes no good. Put them in a hole along the north side of your foundation they may fruit

Ok i turned the temperature down.  The only reason i turned it up was because i saw a youtube video that said higher temperatures can grow twice as fast.  I need them quick.

I dont know what im doing wrong i inoculated two more jars thursday and theres no sign of growth.  I injected 3cc into each jar.  This looked a lot easier than its turning out to be.  I bought the new jars online so theyre supposed to be sterile and ready to go.  My house stays at 70 degrees exactly (pregnant wife) so thats why i had a heater.  Is there any way i can speed up this process? I use the mushrooms for medical reasons and im nervous ill run out.

It can take up to 2 weeks for growth to appear so don't stress yet !

Higher temps will make them grow faster ... because your mycelium will be doing a last ditch effort to battle off the contamination that comes with high temps . But once they are contaminated it's over with . So best bet is be patient with them. It won't happen overnight unfortunately... for us mushie lovers the wait is half the battle :smile:

P.s. Steer clear of random youtubers who claim to know what they're doing ... they normally do not. Lol your best bet is to read the PF tek on here . It has very detailed instructions for noobs :smile:

I really appreciate the help. It has been kind of overwhelming seeing them go so slow.  I ordered a ton of spores so im going to inoculate more jars when they come in.  Hopefully these new ones go ok.

This hobby will teach you patience is key. I still get stressed when I don't see growth but its really not worth it to stress about. It just takes time so try to start working on something else and forget about them check them every other day or so. Having more projects going is how I get distracted from all my waiting times lol Good luck to you!

Warm is bad bruh. High 60s to high 70s only. Warmth is just a catalyst for bacteria and mold. Your fungi may not mind the warm temps but everything else loves the heat!

On you next round of jars. Leave the foil on the top. It will act as a barrier. It will keep any particles from getting inside. I did it as an experiment.  I did a test group with some regular jars and left the foil on about half of them. I changed my lids to the plastic ones. I ordered some of the syringe filters and self healing injection port. I am trying to prevent tricadermia and other contamination.  I started 4 months ago on learning mycology.  I am a HVAC technician so i built my own laminar flow hood.  I had spare parts it also helps that i get contractors prices at the parts house.  To stop as much contamination as possible i did a full cleaning on my HVAC system.  I pulled and cleaned my air conditioning inside coil. I bought a UV light and installed it along with doing a duct cleaning.  You can purchase a ozone generator to kill everything else.  Get a cheap vicks vaporizer and buy some fungicide and run just your fan. Set the vaporizer in the return and let it run for 2 hours. That will kill anything that is in your ducts. If you have a buddy that is a ac technician you can do this pretty cheap. It will hedge your chance of not having contamination. I had a lot of failures and i was getting pissed.i picked up the mushroom cultivator by Paul stamets. That has a lot of good information. Another good one is the Magic mushroom bible. It is focused on just cubensis but it is updated. I am just cleaning up the contamination in my house and trying to win a war. When you walk you are stirring up 30 million particles per square foot. You will never have a 100% clean room but this might help. Doing these things has help me a lot. My success rate has increased. I am currently working qith tampanesis golden teacher and panaeolus cyanescens Jamaica. I started with b+. I want to say thanks to everyone who has posted here. It has been a get help. I hope that i can shed light on the subjects myself. If anyone has any questions just ask.  I have been doing hvac work for a very long time. I can walk you through the installation of a UV light. Or anything that is ac related.

Don't leave the foil on. It keeps your dry verm Barrier from drying out rendering it ineffective as a filter.

The shroomery has done a decade long experiement called collective experience and foil on sucks. Tens of Thousands of trials have already ruled out leaving foil on.

Your duct cleanliness couldn't matter less to your ability to do mycology work indoors. You would sooner be asthmatic before dusty ducts started causing issues to your cakes/tubs

TMC is only a good book to new people to the field. The more you learn the more Paul becomes a dumbass.

When doing sterile work you can have 0 particles get in your work. Regardless of your room having 30,000 or 30million particles. Same amount of precaution(flow hood or SAB + good techniques) avoids them regardless of their concentration
