first attempt at growing.....HELP
    #3211872 - 10/04/04 12:50 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

OK..I've decided i will be using the PF Cake tek/Casing Tek.Heres what i plan on doing.PLEASE make any corrections and/or suggestions.

1.cook 1/2 pint jars in a pressure cooker for an hour or so at 12psi.
2.make substrate out of brf/verm/water
3.fill jars with substrate and top layer of verm, pop a few holes in the top,tape up the holes and cook them again to sterilize
4.inject the spores, tape up the holes, screw on lid loosely
5. wait 2-3 weeks till its all white and furry and nasty

up untill this point im fairly confident(i hope).I really want to do the casing tek so at this point i am planning on...

6.sterilizing an alluminum baking pan by putting it in the oven at 375* or so for about an hour.let it cool
7.put a 1/2"-1/3" layer of vermiculite on the bottom of a alluminum baking pan
8.crumbling the cakes on top of this.
9.put the baking pan into a large plastic bin

this is all im concerned with for now as i havnt gotten any of the materials yet.im thinking im would put the jars inside this plastic bin for colonization. how would you guys handle the temp/light situation for colonization?

hey Im new at this too, but have some well colonized jars waiting to pin... anyway I dont think you need to pc the jars before the substrate as they will just be resteralized with it anyway. also, you probably just forgot to write but, dont forget for your casing to be a casing you need to put something on top of your substrate, not just under it.

george castanza, altitude should not make any difference. There is no reason why it would change anything, assuming you use your PC properly.

They don't really start looking gross and nasty, they start to look like an angelic sort of white.... It looks like the purest and most interesting thing in existence when tripping.

I love cakes, but MycoBags (See MycoBag.com or Fungifuel.com) are way easier. You buy a bag for like 15 bucks, and sterilize your syringe and plastic on the edge of the bed and squirt in the spores, then wait 4 weeks for them to grow :smile:

Cakes are like a work of art though... They're something molded by your own two hands, yet entirely independent of the rest of the universe at the same time.

Actually msltj20, all you do with mycobags is inject the spores, and then the colonized grain fruits in the bag. I've heard of people getting 200g fresh from just one bag.

You inject spores, let it grow for about 4 weeks, put it under some light when its fully colonized, and it'll start to fruit.

if u are doing casings, u can just spray down a plastic bag and put it ina rather warm room till u get sum nice pins. if they get fuxzzzy, or big. put them in a dry bag.

the bags i use are white standard trash bags.
