newb question
    #2888686 - 07/14/04 07:17 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

1. How many 1 pint jars can be inoculated properly with 1 10cc spore syringe?

2. Is it ok to allow different strains with similar growing parameters to fruit in the same chamber?

Thanks!

1. 6 - 10
The smaller, 1/2 pint jars work better with the PF tek though.

2. yes.

Excellent -- thanks for the info. Why do the 1/2 pints work better?
I have a large All American canner/cooker that and fit almost 20 pint jars.

Another question I came up with:
How long can you store a syringe? And whats the best way?

Also -- can I sub. Perlite for Vermiculite (sp) ?

The 1/2 pins colonize faster and with less problems due to better air exchange(towards the bottom, since they are shorter)

HAHA!
Hey I appreciate the info guys...A couple more questions came to mind:

1: Vermiculite vs Perlite...any difference, does it matter?
2: What about cow dung compost?...I noticed it at home depot the other day.
3: Can anybody recomend a good brand or type of electronic thermometer/Hydrometer (humidity) available online or at a major dept. store?

Does "Black Kow" have a pretty powerful smell? What I'm getting at is, is it practical to use indoors?

they are used for two different things in the cultivation process
verm is used when mixing some substrates
and when adding moisture two a substrate (ie casings or rolling a cake in verm)
perilite is used to humidify fruiting chambers

you have to walk before you run
i would say that you should make sure you are confident in your abilities at the pf tek, casings and grains before moving to a bulk substrate

brianjamez what species is your gnome planning on cultivating? cubes i assume

OT:
im using 280 ml (which is approx 236 x 1.19) jars and they seem considerably thicker (just a bit) than the 1/2 pints is this bad?
ill be using pf tek, should i buy some 1/2 pints and chuck these away? (end of OT)

what do you plan to use the verm/perlite for, the chamber or the cakes?

oh yeah sorry to jack your thread brianjamez  :smile:

Dood, my thread is your thread!
Yea...cubes...B+ actualy. I actualy finaly found the verm. today....took me awhile. Lowes Home Improvement is the only place close that does nearby. Not many specialty stores around do...suprisingly.

And yea, the verm. is for my substrate cakes.

One thing I am have a hard time finding is brown rice flour...can this be sub'd with say a whole grain or wheat flour?

Thanks again for the advice. Really helping me clear some things up.

you can get a coffee grinder and grind up brown rice. i couldnt get brown rice flour either so i had to break down and finally buy a coffee grinder.

It dosen't have a real bad smell. I haven't had any complaints from my o'lady. Also just so u know, if u grind up the organic BR, your cakes colonize a little faster then the reg flour. Either way will get u what u want.
