What Else Do I Need ???
    #3655596 - 01/20/05 10:01 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

OK so far this is what I have:
Pressure cooker
jars
BRF & WBS
vermiculite
PMP compete with geolite and bubble wands and pump and heater
Jars
lights with timer
and syringes on the way (B+, Creeper, GT, and Tazmanian all from TLG)

Can anyone think of anything I am over looking or anything else that I might not know about? I plan on mixing up the cake, pressure cooking, inoculating, colonizing, dunk and cold shock, fruiting and dunk and shock after each flush. This will be my third attempt. First time I got enough for two people and second time I got contamination. So please any advice is very welcome. I've read tons of FAQ's and grow logs but am just afraid I'm overlooking something. Thanks in advance

Aluminum foil

Alcohol torch



Do you have a sterile place to inject them?

This is most important.

nude girls?

for the wbs you will want to spawn it to straw this can be done by simply pasturizing your straw in a pillow case you can use your pressure cooker with the lid off and just boil some water you will want a temp gage in there to make sure the temp dosnt go above 170F pasturize it for a hr then put 6" in a tub once cooled and mix with a few jars you will want to mix it as evenly as you can then put plastic warpe over the top of the fresly spawned straw and wait a week or so

yeah you can case it but cubes dont need to be cased but it add's water to them coco coir is great for mositer but sucks when you have to pic a few oz's at once and have to clean 3oz of shrooms

You need gloves,lysol and peroxide or alcohol to sterilize your work area and hands.(carefull of flames with the alcohol!)
a butane torch is a great way to go instead of an alcohol burner...adjustable and leaves no soot on the blade.

Don't forget cleaning supplies!~

Stuff to clean your work area.

Broom and mope...clean the floors.
Bleach...to clean the counters.
Clean Towels...to wipe the counters down.
Lysol...spray the air with before working.

Clean clothes are helpful too.

Wash your hands alot...or wear some type of gloves.

Have sterile conditions and you will always have better success rates.

Good luck!~

thank everyone for all the help. Does anyone know about putting H2O2 in the water at the bottom of the PMP? I inoculated on 1/26/05 so i want to have my pmp in perfect running order. It's already maintaining anywhere between 65 - 80 degrees due to a heating pad under the pmp with adjustable settings. Humidity is right around 90% will that be efficient? Also if anyone could please explain the H2O2 thing to me please please please.

You can put some H2O2 in the pmp. I do, about a cup full.

Your temps in the pmp shouldnt go over 75ish. They can range between 65-75.

Yeah I know about not going over 75 I was just saying that with the different settings on the heating pad I can maintain 65 degrees, 70 degrees, 75 degrees, or 80 degrees. This PMP idea rules. I wish I would have found this forum before my fist two attempts. I bought my spores from TLG.com and I have to say that is the best vendor ever. The prices were the best on the net and shipping was decent as well. I bought 1 syringe of Creeper, 1 of Peutro Rican, 1 of B+, and one of Golden Teacher, and her threw in a free syringe of Orissa India can you believe it. Also he didn't even have Peurto Rican listed on the availiable syringes list. I just saw it in his gallery but ordered Tazmanian. In the order I mentioned how I saw peurto rican in the gallery but not on the list and asked if he had them if I could have get those instead of the Taz and he did. How f'ing cool is that? I am very impressed and he has gained a faithful customer. just Top Shelf

Ok So i inoculated my jars on 1-26-05 and they are doing very well. They are all between 50% and 75% colonized. I think I misunderstood the whole WBS thing. Are people colonizing right on WBS alone? I used the BRF cake method but substitute half the recommended amount of BRF with ground up WBS (powdered in a coffee grinder). Now that i read more I think most people who use WBS do not grind it up. Well so far I am happy with the progress, as it's my best attempt yet. First time I tried I got about 9 shroom lol but I think that was due to not enough RH. Second time all my jars got contaminated. If anyone has any advice or techniques please let me know. I think I might dunk in water with caffeine added after the first flush if everything goes well. Thanks for any input!

Ok It seems my jars have come to a stand still. They are all stuck at about 50% colonized. Temps are right around 80F. Does anyone have any suggestions? I flipped the containers upside down to try and drain CO2 maybe that will help? Any other suggestions???

Hopefully they will pick back up in a day or 2.

If not you might have got a bacterial contamination in the jars.
Or your water content might be off.

You may need those for spawning only!
Just don't PC them, alcohol is enough to prepare the nude girls for spawning!
