Just started my first grow...now here's my first post update PICS!!!!!
    #4199455 - 05/20/05 02:37 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Sorry it's taken me so long to write my first post.  I've been surfing and gathering information so I don't look like a dufus :blush:  I can't remember which method I used.  I've read so many.  Basically 1/2 pint jars, pressure cooker, 1/2 cup vermiculite, 1/4cup brown rice flour,1/4 spring water, and topped with more vermiculite.  I bought B+ the other day, and they threw in an extra syringe of Hawaii.  I just used the B+.  I'll keep everyone updated on their progress.  I'm super excited. :tongue2:

You used the PF Tek like most of us started with.  From what you have stated it looks like you did some reading which is great and probably means you will have little to no problem with your first grow. 

Welcome and enjoy. :mushroom2:

or the The Magic Mushrooms Grower's Guide.

Update. Well, as of 4 days ago my jars had still not colonized, so I put them on top of the refrigerator, and yesterday I finally saw that they were growing! Hooray! I was beginning to worry that I had bought a bunk syringe!

I found them on an internet site that I found on google. I was worried because it took so long, and the syringe was clear like water.

You should order from Shroomery Sponsors, they're all super-trustworthy. And clear syringes are normal.. Spores are so microscopic an invisible amount can be billions.

i recomend you look into to a tub in tub for you next grow as it speeds things up because you can control the temperature for optimal growth.

what will you be fruiting in?

Yeah, the next time I start a grow I will use a sponsor. I am still researching how I want the fruiting to be done.

Pics-o-progress.. http://mimages.ofoto.com/photos1305/3/41/75/59/41/0/41597541308_0_ALB.jpg http://mimages.ofoto.com/photos1305/3/41/75/59/71/0/71597541308_0_SM.jpg http://mimages.ofoto.com/photos1305/3/41/75/59/91/0/91597541308_0_ALB.jpg http://mimages.ofoto.com/photos1305/3/41/75/59/22/0/22597541308_0_ALB.jpg O.K. well. I know it's been a long time, but things took a lot longer than I expected, and here are the reasons (which have now been rectified!) 1) I used pint jars instead of 1/2 pint, and #2 I couldn't find a private area in my home where I could set up a proper way of keeping the temp and humidity high. I made 7 jars, and only 1 got contaminated. I used one for a casing, and have put 5 on their lids in a terrarium. For the casing I followed directions from a couple different sources. I used a combination of vermiculite, rye flakes, and brown rice (ground up at home). I sterilized all including the aluminum pan and then emptied the cake in a ziplock bag and crumbled it up to small lumps. I used perlite on the bottom, then the crumbled cake, then a layer of the casing mix. I will include a pic soon. I covered it in saran wrap and left it in a dark place for 3 days. Now it's peaking through, and I have put it in a terrarium like the one shown in my pic. Not bad construction work for a chic I must say!! Now the cakes are growing and so is the casing!!!! Yipee. I will test the first ones, and then I plan on having a big mushroom party at my house! So excited. Yes, I have all the supplies for preserving all remainders, and yes, I have already started another batch of African strain (the extra syringe I was given). Thanks to all you guys here for all the input!

That site didn't happen to be the Earth's Tongue did it? :lol: This is usually a mistake that most people make before finding the shroomery and it's sponsors. I ordered my first syringe from them...took 6 weeks! They were the creeper strain and never germinated. They suck!!! I ordered from The HawksEye about a week after the ET order and the HE spores actually got to me faster AND they germinated!
