Did I waste a hundred dollars
    #27117775 - 12/31/20 10:42 AM (2 months, 8 hours ago)

Good Morning,

If this post breaks any rules, I apologize.  As I am completely new to growing any type of mushrooms, I decided to start easy.. 

I purchased 2 all in one grow bags off Amazon.  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TRHYDLK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I also purchased a syringe of Jedi and another of B+ off 2 different vendors.  I inoculated each bag, and... nothing happened.

I am not even growing mold.  Bags are high in moisture content... No signs of mold growth... Just no growth what so ever. 

Do neither of these strains grown in said medium? 

One vendor was an approved vendor on a Reddit
The other vendor was an online vendor I found...

The reddit vendor has been in used for years and everyone raves about him.  So I was thinking that it may be that the growth medium was the issue?

Anyone have any thoughts?

Spores can take 2 -3 weeks to germinate. Haw many cc did you inject?

B+ 1/3 of a syringe - nothing grew after a month so when I did the Jedi, I did the entire syringe thinking I did not inject enought

Did you shake syringes?


Also what temperature are you keeping the bags at? Lastly I assume yes but they do have the white filter patches correct?

They were sitting next to a register in my house (spare bedroom) room temp is 70F so I believe the register is putting out 74F or so..
Yes they have the breathable tape at the top.

Premade bags are notorious for giving first timers issues. Start making jars. mushroomvideos.com has all the info you need to be successful in this hobby.

Only buy from the shroomery sponsors page. Reddit can be a dumpster fire

Smaller containers like 1/2 or 1/4 pint mason jars are much easier to colonize then huge bags.

How long have you been waiting on these bags? Spores can take a while to wake up.

B+ 6 weeks
Jedi a month

I really want to buy my first jars.  Are they sold on here?

Yeah I'd give it another few weeks just to be safe. If theres still no fuzzy white growth then try again.

Its important not to get discouraged early on, I'd say everyone fucks up the first few times. Its all about practice and improving your self.

You can use basically any glass jar with a tight lid. If you are just starting out you should get 1/4 pint mason jars (Ball is a popular name brand) and do the pf tek with them. You can get them at places like target or amazon

I think its better to have lots of small projects going on then one big project.

You probably are not going to get the crazy yields the first times. Its all about learning the process. Keep reading and stick with it. When you finally get some fruit, don't forget to take spore prints!

70F is on the low end but not bad.  The syringe did you shoot it in the middle or near the edge of the bag? If it's in the middle it may very well be colonizing and you can't see it yet.

Premade bags and kits usually end up bacterial. I highly suggest starting with agar. It seems intimidating at first but it really isnt so bad once you get the hang of it. If you're good at following recipes and have access to a pressure cooker, you'll do fine. Chances are that the spores are dirty anyway and even if you do get them to germinate in a bag, you're likely going to grow other things that you don't want. D3monic has a good agar write up. The link is in my signature.

If you can't get a pressure cooker, brf cakes usually have a high success rate when directly injecting spores to grain.
