Allow myself to introduce myself
    #3136301 - 09/14/04 10:27 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hi, Hi guys I am a first time poster. However I do have one successful grow under my belt. I did have one cake that I successfully grew in my tupperware terrarium. I got a little over a quarter dry out of it before my friend who colonized the cake and gave it to me decided to break it up and make tea with it. Well I am deciding to give growing a try on my own; from the beginning. Today I went to wall mart and purchaed these items:
Pressure Cooker 4.2q - $17.97
pennington 4lb bag wild bird seed- $1.00
Colorox Bleach $1.00
2 3pack eazy seal containers, microwaveable, 32oz-4cup $2.00
12 one pint mason jars- $6.84
Msc... spray bottles, alchahol, hydrogen peroxide... $5.00.
I already have a 55 gallon, huge black container that is doing nothing, and the previously used clear terrarium with grow rocks and an air pump going into it. I just looked its 19qt. I was wondering where to start. I already have spore prints, but no spore syringes. I took the spore prints myself off of the previous cake I grew. I do have a digital camera and can post pics of everything. Thanks for any advice.

no need to post pics of everything. Sounds like your on the right track. check out Mycosupply a shroomery vendor for syringes. She always has good deals. Just make sure you follow your tek to the T. WBS is good but if your doing cakes id almost go for the PF tek your first time around and do a WBS casing for your 2nd grow. I think you would do better to start the simplest and work your way up IMO. But for the most part your on the right track. If you think your comfortable doing WBS and casing it then go for it. but remember BE STERILE!

Isnt there a Way That I can get around using a syringe? I also got Polyfil while at Wallmart. And I also Have a huge bag of grow rocks that could fill the 55 gallon container... Right now I have 6 of the pint jars filled with the bird seed to soak over night.

You may want to try another grain first. I find it annoying to judge moisture content of bird seed as compared to say popcorn or rye. Those are both cheap as hell, by the way.

You need to polyfill the hole in the jars since your doing grain. You need to fill 2/3 so you can direct the needle to the wals from the one hole in the center and so you can shake.

You dont need a syringe from a feed store you need a syringe full of mushroom spores. Where do you think they come from?

:ooo:
No shit, I couldn't find one that cheap when I went shopping there.
I wanted a decent sized one and the cheapest I saw was 30 bucks I think.

Anyways... eazygrowin...welcome to the shroomery! :grin:

Since u are doing WBS i suggest u return those pint jars and get urself some
Quarts. The bigger the better. If not, its cool they will work just fine.

Have u thought of how u were going to incubate?

U dont need a syringe if u use petri dishs!
U will need a way to hydrate ur prints IME
either with the use of syringe or petri dish.

U might wanna get some rubber gloves and a facemask, but they are not needed.
Ur gunna want some polyfil to let ur jars breath.
U might wanna start thinking about if u want to spawn it to some poo or just case
it. Any thoughts on witch?

Good Luck!

Enjoy ur first rating from me! 5 Shrooms!!

I dont think a newb is up for agar work so going from a spore syrine sounds best.

I advise you to do PF cakes with the MMGG method your first time. (google mmgg). If you are going to skip PF cakes, then I suggest you go with rye. It is much easier and more forgiving than WBS.
