just got my spores
    #3252059 - 10/19/04 05:13 PM (13 years, 6 hours ago)

hello all. i am a first time grower, and i just recieved my spores. i am following the pf tek for this time cause it seems easy. i was reading one time and this board said to not leave the tape on the jars, great info thanks. so i got to thinking "what else do i not know? i have read all the begginers tek's so i have those bases covered. i would like so good info from the seasoned vet's on the good little tricks. also i do have one question do i spray the jars while incubating and if so how much/often. thanks

spray? your best bet is to leave your jars alone light slows the growth down keep them at the right temp be patiant oh yea good luck man and make sure everything is clean dont slack on it its better to be almost OCD when doin anything with your new hobby

No you don't spray your jars while incubating. Put them in a warm 80 to 85 degree dark place till they finish colonization. Use a tub in tub if you don't have a warm enough place. Just follow the tek to the letter and you will be fine. Good luck.

dunking is usually done between flushes to rehydrate the cake for the next flush. the cake is submerged in water for 12-24 hours. some roll the dunked cake in dry vermiculite, then spray until wet, and put back in terrarium.

Great to hear you found a new awesome hobby! Don't forget to shake the shit out of that syringe just before inoculating your jars, this evenly disperses spores in the syringe as they tend to clump most often. GL and welcome to mycology 101! :wink:

Glad ya figured that one cause even the pro can forget sometimes, this is probably the #1 newbie mistake so be forwarned. There are alot of things that you can find by reading as many basic teks as you can, you will pic up a little something here and a little something there ya know what I'm sayin? let the needle cool before inoculating, ya I know but but you asked, that also goes for the jars after sterilizing if they feel warm then they're too hot still. A half cc/ml per hole injecting as you draw the needle out helps disperse spores better in the substrate. Don't tape the holes just use foil over the lids and keep the foil on throughout the incubation period. I could go on and on but these are enough tips to get started right! GL ll

Cold shocking goes hand in hand with dunking. Dunking increases yield noticably and cold shocking is one of your three pinning triggers, it doesn't have to be in the fridge as it only takes 8-10 to get the benefit of a temp drop cold shocking just gives it an extra kick in the pants is all. :wink: Heres something that will help you understand a lot better as to whats what in Pinner town :wink: :

Did ya even check it out? It's loaded with tips more than you could ask for. Then read up on the basics again. Your better off doing some work of your own so we can answer more pressing questions. I put my time in now it's your turn ll. We are a generous bunch here but it's time to absorb all that info I just turned you onto.

And BTW I don't give little tips I give Tips! Tips are what aid you in succeeding and that cannot be considered little. Again GL and may your mind expand as rapidly as a pin develops! :wink:
