Best Newbie Q's
    #3947605 - 03/21/05 06:12 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

QUESTIONS that make you know the person who asked, is a Newbie who hasn?t researched more than a few minutes. A few - for instances:

1. How much dry weight will my four????? ? pint cakes yield?
2. Can I just inject spores in a hay bale & grow shrooms out of it?
3. Can I just bake my cakes, instead of steaming them?
4. Can I dry shrooms in the oven @ 350F, without burning them?

5. Will spraying bleach on my cakes, kill the green mold on them?

This is my favorite so far

baked my soil mixed with bird seed and wood shavings at 400F for 1 hour, I mixed 2 different spores. Gulf Coast and Yen Yang. How long will it take before i start seeing results and what should i do to help it grow more potent and faster




Yup, that is a good one. Answer would be, PISS on them, 4 times a day.

Can I inject spores into poo in a field and get shrooms.

My cake is 90% green mold, can I save it.

I can't find verm. can I substitute perlite for it?

Can i inject a apple with spores and feed it to a horse (that one is so damn funny)

I injected my stuff last week, where are my shrooms.

If I mix two strains in the same cake, can I make a super strain?

People have tried it I'm sure, based on all the people who get the ideas. Do you think that most people will report back with their failures? Most of them asked about it and defended it so well, to post back that everyone was right, is something most people wouldnt do. I'm not surprised I havnt heard of it failing...however if it worked, I'm sure someone would have posted back with some pictures saying so. I've seen the idea brought up so much.

In the end, no one really knows...good to keep an open mind...but some things you can just really take a good guess on, Teks work and are proven that they work and work well. Even if some things work, there are often better ways making it not worth it.

And the asbestos in the verm thing, I can't really blame people for. Thats misinformation I've found all over the internet and even in published books (published after 91, in 92 or 94).

I always love seeing the same question asked, and even the topic stated in a similar way, and the threads are not only on the same page, but right next to eachother too and the second guy goes "I DID search!"

well doing a search and actually knowing how to interpret search results are two seperate things entirely...

my favorite noob question is "Can I eat mushrooms from a cake that has _____ mold on it?" usually asked before the cake fruits, and before the realization that _____ mold probably won't let that cake fruit much, if at all.

or along the same lines: "Is cobweb mold safe to eat?" of which there are a dozen or so threads going at any moment in the contam forum.

So does that make me a newbie because I say that the three pinning triggers for cubies are temp drop, light, and fresh air? Everyone else says that.

If you draw a conclusion yourself, and its the same as others, doesnt mean your repeating it when you say it. That is, and always has been MF's stand on experimental things...so how do you know the noobs who said it in that thread werent copying him.

He brought up a good point, yours though isnt anywhere near as valid. Sorry :frown:
