Prepping for first grow
    #27339989 - 06/08/21 11:52 AM (6 days, 17 hours ago)

Hey everyone,

Prepping for my first grow (B+,GT). Have to nail down the tek I'm planning on using. Been looking at Munche's monotub tek. On the fence if I should modify or not due to how dry it is here (as dry as dry gets). Have syringes, but thinking of transferring to agar to ensure a clean spawn. Going to go with groats and straight coir first go around. Thanks for reading, any input would be greatly appreciated. Excited to get started.

I'm fairly new as well.  I decided to go with agar.  I'm glad I did.  If nothing else, it's a great teaching tool because you can see what is going on.

Munch’s is a good tek especially in extra dry conditions. 

If you can do it, agar will make things easier. Short term learning for long term ahhhh. 
Lots of teks. Check out Mr. Alien’s holy grail plastic plates. It’s satisfying to reuse rather than discard.

It's great stuff, thanks for the input my friend. Looks like I'm on an agar hunt.

My first time I tried spore syringe to oats I wasted half my syringe on 5 jars nothing grew... luckily I tried agar at the same time. Used a drop or two on each dish and had much more success. Moral of the story agar can make your syringe last so much longer! I suggest doing a few plates at a time just incase a few contaminate or dont germinate. Just my 2cents from one student to another

Thanks for the input. Think I'm going to run Pastyplates for my first go with agar.

Hi! Welcome to Shroomery! Sounds like you have a good plan. I am working on my first grow as well. One happy little mistake that happened to me  was during the peak of morel season when I neglected looking at my agar dishes for a few days and found them sprouting shrooms! Freaked me out at first but I found out it's a good thing! And the fact that the fruits bruised blue when they were damaged was another happy sign. I was able to transfer these to new plates and then those dishes went to grain. And hopefully this will increase the odds for my second grow. Good luck to you!
