Hi folks, this is my first post to these forums, I have been reading them for a couple of weeks now, and gaining knowledge along the way. I am trying my first batch of pf jars. I did 10 with 1cc spore solution, and 5 with 2cc's.

Being a first timer in this I have had many questions that I really needed help with. I found Thor on The Shroomery website, got his icq, and have been talking to him for maybe a week now.

I have to say that this guy is the most helpful person I've ever encountered in connection with any website. I have asked him numberous questions and he has patiently answered every one without making me feel like I'm pestering him.

I have just finished my inoculation of the 15 jars today, and will post results as they occur. I am hoping for success with all of them, but realize that I may have failure with some or many.

I just had to say what a great person Thor seems to be. Thanks Thor for putting up with me!

Also for anyone who is thinking of trying to grow for the first time, let me give just a word or two of advice.

1. The entire PF Tek is online located on many different websites. Don't bother with purchasing the $10 booklets, unless you just want a printed out copy. I spent the money and got the books, hoping for some extra "magic secrets" only to find that I had already read ALL of the info online.

2. When I bought my jars I got Kerr half pints, but failed to get the short ones. I will get short ones next time, I think they will work better.

3. Take the advice of the numerous people who have been successful, and have posted advice online. I have not yet spoken to 3dshroom, but if this person is anything like Thor, (and I bet they are) you'll find a wealth of info by communicating with them.

Again Thanks Thor, and I will keep everyone posted on my progress.

Yes, Thor is a great guy. I have talked to him on the phone, and he is very freindly. I can't wait to meet him at the fest(gathering forrum for detail's). I hope all goes well with your jar's. Good luck.

Well it's all true, every time I have a question you seem to have the answer. :)

It has only been about 48hrs since I started my first jars, the rest of the 15 were done aprox, 12 hrs later.Maybe I'm dreaming but I know I'm seeing some type of fungal looking growth around the bottom of the jars, and in line with the pin holes in all of them. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Day 3 for all jars, 3 1/2 for the 4, still seeing "some" progress not as much as I had hoped for after the first 24 hrs, but I think things are still looking good. Planning on starting a second batch soon..
