Pf tek- verm substituted with peat!!
    #4099889 - 04/26/05 07:32 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hello all..this here was an experiment i conducted not too long ago when i got bored one day,and well,lookslike it workedperfectly.After reading many post's about shroomerites having difficulty finding vermiculite,I got to wondering,there has to be a substitute that can match vermiculite.Well looks like peat has to be the one.So following the pf tek,i did everything exactly the same except add peat instead of vermiculite,and used tyvek.The colonization was about 7-10 days quicker(i let mine over colonize),the fruits seemed meatier,and the fruits were over all bigger than previous studies with this strain.The strain was good ol' a-strain from Ralphsters.On my previous grows of this strain using The origional pf tek,my fruits were way skinnier,and very hollow,these were still hollow,but not much.Another weird thing is that they seem to bruise really bad, doubt it's higher Psilocybin content,but still strange...heres some pics so enjoy,and if ya cant find verm,get peat!!! Peace P3K

the mixture prepared

loaded in jar

100% colonized

And right before harvest...

And 2 days after air drying...


Hope this help's someone..peace!!!

well i hate to burst ure bubble but i made this up too, im not saying ure idea wasnt orginal but i did the same thing but added some calcium carbonate sand to the peat and brf. i didnt make it as far as u did because my cakes got contaminated on account of a homemade syringe, but i did manage to get like 2 cakes out of it and i spawned them to bulk which i am currently fruiting. sry that we bumped heads. check out in my signature the link pf tek innovation. im glad that this worked out though and im happy to see a happy shroomer.

well i dont care who made it up,really it was fanaticus because its his recipe just using peat,i only did this to show people that cant find verm that they can use peat,and still productively..i added lime to my first batch,but then did a second version without it and the results came out to be exactly the same,so a Ph buffer in my opinion is a step that can be skipped..this tek is getting ready to get another over haul with a bunch of variations to the nutrient level using different nutrients,we'll see how that goes,theres nothing better than experimenting and trying to out do yourself.peace p3k

Peat will work, but vermiculite is superior.
