Day 2 - What I've learned
    #25655397 - 12/03/18 08:55 PM (2 years, 3 months ago)

1) It's just as easy as the TEKs and videos make it appear. Except when it's not. It's not when a noob like myself has a brain-fart along the lines of "Next press the red button, but first..." I totally spaced sterilizing the needle between jars (PF TEK). I'm hoping that the needle having just come from a sterile package is gonna save my butt, but maybe not.

2) It took more stuff than I thought. To do 12 jars it took a full 6 cups verm, 3 cups BRF and 3 of water. I had like a teaspoon extra left over.

3) If the instructions don't work, figure out new instructions. I'm not particularly dexterous so the whole "lightly press down" when filling the jars didn't work for me. So I'd fill the jars to the rim and then smack them on the counter (with a protective towel in place) to settle the mix. Worked great and gave me a much more uniform compaction than smashing my thumb on it. Plus I didn't get any mix stuck to my fingers,

4) The spore syringes came with real fucking needles. Don't stick your thumb. :syringe:

5) The SAB works great as a germination chamber. At least I think hope it does.

6) Waste a couple jars as controls. I left one packed, sealed but not sterilized to see what will grow. I left one sealed and sterilized to let me know if my steam bath did the trick. The rest I inoculated. I probably used too much spore water but being my first time I wanted to get results as opposed to volume.

So I've got 2 grows to babysit on PE and one GT, 5 jars each. If I get anything interesting I'll post some pictures.

How can you be in two places at once, when you're not anywhere at all?
