JARS! plz respond!
    #350504 - 06/28/01 03:29 AM (15 years, 8 months ago)

I'm a newbie to mush growing. i'm using Shroom Wizard's tek, if that makes a difference. I inoculated my jars about 6 weeks ago and don't have SHIT ALL growing. I did, however leave the 3 syringes I used (i made 24 jars) in a drawer for three months at room temperature. I think they died in that time. I've just recently learned that the fresher the spores the faster the growth. My question is could I use the same jars to grow new myceliem with new spores? With other species of spores? I'm fairly certain that the spores I used have been dead for a while so I don't think they'll conflict with any new spores I might add. If anyone can help me out, great! Thanks! PS. Has this ever happened to anyone else before?

Heh, yeah that makes a BIG f*cking difference. I've said this about a dozen times in the last two weeks: the Shroom Wizard's Grow Guide is crap. Nothing against Shroom Wizard himself, but if you follow his tek you're just wasting time and money. Boiling your jars for only 20 minutes will not kill off some varieties of bacteria, which will take over your substrate before you even see any mycelium growth. Removing the lids of your jars when innoculating will expose your substrate to all kinds of unwanted organisms. It's no surprise at all that you haven't seen any growth. My advice: start over, using the MMGG (you can find it in the Grow/Find section here on the Shroomery), and you'll do fine. No, don't waste more spores on those jars; if you can't see any mycelium from your first innoculation then either a) your substrate recipe is just totally funky, or b) they're teeming with bacteria. Hope this helps,


I am a figment of my own imagination

Yeah, now we are talking!
The tek is bullshitt. It might have worked for the author, but I haven?t read about more than two other people for which it has worked.
I emailed 3Dshroom and Thor about writing an appropriate warning comment to the tek, that it?s not suitable for newbies.

My buddy has tried Shroom Wizard's tek and hasn't succeeded either. I'd suggest that if you want to do the MMGG tek, you should probably just use the PF Tek instead since it's pretty much the same. I've done both and the PF Tek is the way to go, especially if you're a beginner. Using this tek you'll also get no-nonsense instructions without all those ridiculous add-on notes. You'll find it at www.fanaticus.com
