MetaFAQ - Cultivation Forum Proposal
    #3201198 - 09/30/04 08:49 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Although we have a FAQ with a rich set of questions and answers, it seems like a small subset of the FAQ's keeps coming up over and over in here.

I propose a Frequently Asked FAQ sticky thread. It'll be a sort of MetaFAQ or FAFAQ. Get it?

I'll start the thread now by posting the first Frequently Asked Frequently Asked Question, the one about which strain is best/most-potent/most-yielding, and other experienced growers can reply with their own favorite pet FAFAQ's.

When we have, say, 10 or so, one of the mods can make it sticky.

:mushroom2: What do you think??

3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

What's the best/fastest-colonizing/most-potent/highest-yielding strain?

FAFAQ: http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23248

They're all very close to the same, and for a beginner whose less-than-perfect technique is likely to account for a huge variation in yield and potency, the tiny variations from one strain to another will be lost in the noise.

You'll get more mileage out of reading the FAQ and improving your technique than you will ever get out of choosing one strain over another.

Later, when you have more experience, you'll learn the subtle quirks of each strain and be able to exploit them to improve yield and potency.

The only good advice about strain selection for a newbie is to stay away from oddball strains like Penis Envy or glow-in-the-dark strains.

:mushroom2: Good luck!

Can I use a blacklight?

Mycelium will pin and fruit under UV but it will develop genetic damage that will show up several generations down the line. If you're not printing and you just grow from purchased syringes, UV light will work since you will not be propagating the genetic line, but the only good reason to use it is for stealth.

:mushroom2: Good luck!

How long are spores/syringes good for?

Spores prints kept dry and stored in a cool, dark place will remain viable for years.

Spore syringes stored in a refrigerator will easily remain viable for six months and some as old as two years have been used to grow mushrooms.

I've heard of dunk and roll, but what is it?

1. Birth your fully colonized cake into a zip-lock bag then add water until cake is fully submerged.

2. Place in fridge for 24 hours.

3. Remove cake and roll in clean vermiculite.*

4. Fill a shallow lid with dry vermiculite and spray with water till nice and damp.

5. Place cake on vermiculite.

6. Add dry vermiculite to the top of the cake and mist the entire cake, vermiculite and all.

7. Place in terrarium and wait eight days on average for pins.

* To sterilize vermiculite put in microwave safe container (spread out evenly) for ten minutes, then stir and use. Also make sure to wet the vermiculite to target moisture before microwaving.

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

Well through increased vocabulary there comes increased knowledge, so newbies should learn the terminology as quickly as possible in my opinion.

And those were the directions as given to me when I first asked that question, all those months ago.

My spore syringe is completely clear, is it still viable?

There is no evidence to support that saturating a syringe with spores (giving the appearance of an extremely dark or black syringe) is any better than a clear a syringe.

As long as you went through a reliable vendor you should be fine. You could also try shaking the syringe and holding it up to a light, more often than not you'll be able to see spores floating around.
