Two Quick Questions
    #4197155 - 05/19/05 09:34 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

First off, my friend is about to take his first attempt at using a pressure cooker for his jars, and he is wondering what the optimum settings for it would be. Standard verm/brf substrate. I've heard either 12 psi or 15, which one should he go with, and for how much time (I've heard of a wide range of time to leave them in...)?

Also, which temperature have ya'll had the most luck with when your jars are being colonized? The PF Tek says room temperature (and that overheating is the important thing to prevent, that cooler temperatures are all right), but I've also heard around 80 degrees... I'm basically wondering what is the perfect temperature to assure fast colonization times but prevent too much overheating.

My friend is looking forward to diving head first into growing, and he just received his syringes today, Transkei, Golden Teacher, Cambodian, and Amazon (he had ordered Mazatapec, but they were out, so they substituted with Amazon and a free Cambodian syringe, TLG rules!  :thumbup:). :mushroom2: He was looking forward to growing Mazatapecs again, as they are the first strain he fell in love with, but a free syringe certainly makes up for it. :grin:

Thanks for all of the help and wish my friend good luck! :wink:

:headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :satansmoking:
Peace. :mushroom2:

84-86F for colonization

what RH for colonization is good?

Jump ahead 10, maybe 20 years, and you're married, only your marriage doesn't have that same energy that it used to. You start to think back on all the girls you ever met, and what might have happened if you picked up with one of them.

Whats going on,
I have no experience with the PC but as far as the appropriate temp for PF jars, I can tell you that I've done them quite a few times at room temp. with good results. Colonization in about 2.5 - 3 weeks. The last time I did them I was in kind of a hurry, so I put them in a room at about 82 degrees and 4 out of 6 dried out. The other two were only savable because as soon as they colonized, which took a month I dunked them for a solid 24 hours. My own personal experience would say room temp or slightly above.

I'm definitely willing to sacrifice colonization time in order to ensure that the jars don't dry out.. I'd be pissed if all of my jars were almost completely colonized, and then, bam, no more water. :evil:

I'm thinking I'll keep them at room temperature...

20 mins at 15 psi, 25 mins at 12 psi, more is not better.
Here is 20 mins at 15 psi

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Thanks. :thumbup: If only that jar also colonized in only 20 minutes. :grin:

Notice the wolf eyes in both signatures? :lol: Actually, mine isn't a wolf, its my Norwegian elkhound, but he certainly looks like some sort of small wolf. :wink:

the eyes would be Zens, he is my siberian husky. He is red instead of black like most of them.

Cool dog, I'm sure he makes a great trip companion. :thumbup: I'd throw up a picture of Odin, my Elkhound, but I have no recent picture, he's still a pup and is quickly growing into his adult form... :grin:
