Ha ha... Uncle Ben Tek is actually working (so far)
    #26902011 - 08/27/20 12:04 PM (6 months, 4 days ago)

I'm a newbie and am not advocating for this but it seemed like such a crazy thing that I had to try it for the novelty. I bought ten Uncle Ben's Brown Rice bags, did a Capri Sun injection along with a single hole punch (like from a paper hole puncher) all covered with micropore tape.

I had no expections but after 14 days it appears (from this bag I opened to see... a throwaway now obviously) that although slow growing, that it's growing!

So I mushed up the remaining bags a bit and I'll leave them in the closet to do their thing. I'll post an update in a week.

I don't plan on using or suggesting this as a regular thing but the idea of growing magic mushrooms in Uncle Ben's bags from Walmart was too much to resist. :grin:

That's the best looking one I've seen

Doesn't work terribly well.  I've tried it out of curiosity and overall progress is slow (week 5 currently), it's easy to overdo it with spore solution leading to wet rot or mold and you can't see progress clearly.  Not to mention that these rice bags are stupidly expensive.  The target demographics is clearly people who want to do this as a one-off thing and have plenty of time to spare.



Next time I'll try to use pressure-cooked grain jars instead.

I’m gonna try this tomorrow and will post pics of my progress.. newb in action here lol. I watched a good UB tek on YouTube and the newer bags supposedly are more transparent to see thru? 🤔 the method I’m trying is making my injection port at the bottom middle but to carefully not get too close to the fold of bag.. then, as “sterile” as possible, cut each top corner and cover w micropore tape for good air exchange. From what I have seen on forum so far is the lack of good air exchange that’s  inhibiting faster growth?

I'm a complete noob myself and have been doing my first agar run. After my second transfer I didn't want the plates going to waste so I thought I'd throw them in UB bags. I have two tubs which started pinning a few days ago and two I S2B Monday and a few more bags colonising.

So the tek has been working OK for me so far. I fully intend to make jars myself but nothing wrong with experimenting :thumbup:

Awesome J-13, would love to see your pics!
This literally is my second go at inoculating (first is still chilling with “promising” mycelium growth day 10 in all in one grow bag) that I made my own spore syringe with. Fun hobby for me with trial and error..
Obviously, I could go into great detail about using aseptic technique, (yes, not sterile technique because I’m in health field and had to point that out lol) but not going to go there.. this is pure fun noob experiment for me. I did find a corner in a small room and turned air off in the house completely for about 30min. Also used a hepa filter in the room 30min prior too then shut off. You can’t see the 70% ISO in the pics but had it in a spray glass bottle nearby and used it to wipe down everything before I touched it, including my hands. Used a K95 mask and didn’t rip the micropore tape until I needed to use it. The tape is by no means sterile so I can see where contamination can be introduced almost right away. I just happened to have a pair of sterile gloves lying around so was a plus not necessity was just been a little extra about it lol. Can you see where I made sure at the top I left a rim of tape for the ventilation? Used triple wiped down w iso on scissors to cut so hope I didn’t screw myself by skipping the flame sterile on them. I did flame sterile the needle. Put them in a box w sm strip of tape to close box in cabinet above clothes dryer. Ha! We shall see!!

I've had a couple failed attempts using MSS. Decided to give agar a go and doing everything in a SAB and I haven't had any issues since. I think I just got shite luck with the MSS.

I don't flame the scissors either just wash them and spray with ISO and let dry.

Good luck with everything though dude I'm sure it will go great :thumbup:

I'll post some pics tomorrow too

Agar is amazing and easy once you get the hang of identification of contams

Sorry dude pics are not the best like. the two tubs colonizing have two bags of UB each as well as the tubs that have started fruiting, the bags will be three weeks on wednesday, and the agar is a fifth transfer. i was gonna do another transfer from them but i think i will leave them and take a clone from the tub ill make from the three bags.

I just used coir and the bucket tek and then eyeballd everything lol. Probably close to 50:50.

Good job I think agar is defo the way forward. Make a still air box and make sure to be as clean as possible, take your time, label and document everything etc.

Good luck dude

Nice job any updates??
I feel like the corner cut is def better as far as GE goes.

I had 5 bags that looked good but when I opened they had green stuff in the middle. I have had better results with the Target brand bags and I am moving to BBTek but will still do a few bags because they are so easy.

From that dozen of rice bags only three survived and I used them to spawn two shoeboxes. I've got four flushes out of them, about half a pound wet which turned into an ounce dry. Plenty for now, but I'll try to do better with a different Tek sometime next year.

Wee update... Getting very close to my very first harvest. hopefully before the weekend.



Colonized three bags were S2B on Monday and my other two tubs are fully colonized starting to see a few knots. hopefully have more dense, even and faster growth than first two tubs
