last minute advice
    #4190423 - 05/18/05 12:17 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Hey :smile:

I'm about to shower, bleach my kitchen, and then start my first grow. Taking lots of pics with my new cam to post my first grow report too  :thumbup:

I'm doing the "PF tek for simple minds" for the sake of simplicity until I know how the little guys work and all, and get used to working in a clean environment, or as close to it as possible. A variation I am making is using Rye, millet, and flaxseed flours seperately and combined, experimentally, instead of BRF, to see which ones perform well for me and my Ecuador spores. Should I be altering the BRF/replacement to verm ratio? I had assumed I should keep it the same..

if you start using grain verm will not be need because grain holds its own water content as opposed to brf which need the vermuculite to buffer water content just make sure you have a pc if you are going to go with grain

so if I use powdered grains this still applies? What would happen to my grow if I used verm anyways?

sorry thats different if you grind them you will need to add the verm to keep the water content right

I think he thought you were using whole grains. I'm sure you can just use the same ratios. I wonder why BRF was the powdered grain that was used first.......

New questions..

Will the fact that my spore syringe has been sitting here for a couple weeks affect my grow?

Also, I am a little short on spore solution, and would like to get 16 1/2 pint PF jars out of my one 10cc syringe.. If I innoc in 3 places instead of 4, and let them incubate longer, is it likely to have an adverse affect on my grow?

no...your spore syringe can sit for awhile.
keeping them in a cool dark place helps...the frig will keep them viable a very long time.

you could use a 3 point inoculation...rather than a 4 point.
the draw back is that you will have slower colonization times.

if your trying to save some $$$$...try the karo tek.
make 1cc of spores into 100cc of LC.

thanks :smile:

I dont mind waiting a little longer, as long as it wont have any other adverse effects.

next issue.. I want to case eight of my 16 jars when fully colonized, in two casings with two different casing teks, and would like some advice on what casing teks would be best for my particular situation.

thanks for the ongoing support guys :smile: Having lots of fun with my first grow, almost ready for inoculation

killer. And if I cant get the dung? I'm kind of in an urban area, and have no connections with people who deal with teh poo.

Also, my pc by default only cooks at ~10PSI, and the tek says 15, so I'm cooking it a little hot and for double the time. Will this suffice?

I live in an urban area and drive 35 miles to my Uncles to get horse poo from his horses.
You can find it too...just might take some leg work.
I'd drive to a farm and ask for some...tell them you need some for your garden.

You shouldn't run the pc hot...just run it a little longer...like 30 minutes or so.
Make sure you have enough water in the pc to get the job done!~
