If you start out with BRF cakes, follow the instructions to a tee, and take advantage of all the knowledge and wisdow on this site, you will succeed. To what degree is up to you. Just stay by the book and don't do any "experimenting" your first time out. I studied and read  for months before I ever tried and my first grow was very successful. Good Luck.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

Just don't do what I did on my first grow and you will be fine. When the mycellium blues it's not contamination! Don't throw them out.

How skimpy are you being with the set-up? If I had to do it again, I'd just follow Magash's Grain Tek, Magash's PMP tek, and Skippy's SBP tek.

Thats why I don't throw anything,well almost anything out. I get one with green, I just place it outside to see what happens. This casing, one of my first poo attempts, came down with a little green while colonizing. Threw it on the back porch, let it sit there a month or so, green seemed to let up so I decided to throw some straight verm. on it and place in my ICU unit,lol,



and give them a chance to fruit. This particular patient wound up producing about 270 grams wet before finally giving up the ghost.




This one wound up weighing 55 grams by itself. Boy that poo makes some solid shrooms.



It's not like I need the shrooms, I don't partake all that often, I just feel sorry for them if they don't get to have babies,lol.

So, if possible, give them every chance to bear fruit.

That little casing next to it in the first pic had been on the porch for months. Went to throw it out a couple days ago and had pins along the sides so into ICU it went. I know they're terminal but I like to make their last days as comfortable as possibly.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

The odds are REAL good!! Just be careful and CLEAN with everything and don't get IMPATIENT at all. After my jars were colonized, It seemed that I spent every waking hour wondering, worrying and checking. It can make hours seem like days when you do that. You'll feel the same when you get your first real shroom, but until then try not to over-do the "mothering".

"Religion is a defense against a religious experience"
              Carl G. Jung

 
"So really, ordinary reality is a kind of chemical habit, sanctioned by culture, which says it's okay to use certain drugs, eat certain foods, and have certain sexual behaviors. However, when you transcend all this pre-conditioning by returning to the original wisdom of the animal body, then you discover this immense dimension of opportunity. For some people, it is a frightening risk. To me, that's the psychedelic experience."

Odds are very good IF you read, read, and read some more.. follow the teks you read to the tee and you should really up your chance for a success. i just finished my first grow and it worked out very well imo.

The odds get a lot better if you can be sober while doing it. I once knew this experienced pot head who wanted to give it a go after I carefully explained each step. He was really lucid while on pot, or so it seemed, but when it came to making the half pint jars, he'd always manage to screw it up when smoking MJ. I would recommend total sobriety for 24 hours before making your first set of jars no matter who lucid you THINK you are while smoking. Once you get the hang of it, the jars are like riding a bike and get boring with their low yield. Then you'll be hungry for bulk techniques.

It will depend on you, what you have learned, how you apply it, your budget, means & space available.

I started with bulk. Before I ever saw a spore syringe, I bought an AA PC, 4 cases of wide mouth quart mason jars, built a glove box & jar incubator & figured out wbs spawn was the way I would start.

Ordered 2 each syringes of 4 strains from TLG. 1 each as a back up, in case I f/U the first batch.

Soaked, rinsed, drained wbs, used tyvek as a lid filter (lids w/2 holes), one for gas exchange, one for innoc & PC'ed 20 jars 90 minutes @ 15 psi.

Inoculated 5 jars each, 2 ml each of 4 differing strains. First lesson learned, was don't fill wbs jars more than 3/4 full, as it makes them tough to shake.

During jar colonization, found h/poo supply to use as bulk sub, picked a casing mixture tek (50/50+).

Jars all colonized with no loss's.

Pasturized h/poo, spawned @ 25% rate in trays.

Held back 1 strain each colonized WBS jar & did G2G to make more spawn. Lesson learned, good pasturization is important, as is moisture content @ spawning.

Did G2G in a sanitized bathroom with under 8% contamination rate.

Lost about 30% of cased subs to green & cobweb. Lesson learned, ph of casing mix is critical, as is FRESH AIR EXCHANGE.

First harvest was several pounds wet. Lesson learned, make practice prints - just to learn how it goes & throw those prints away, as 80% will be dirty - until you get the hang of sterile print making.

Also learned, screw a fan & desicants, get & use a dehydrator (American Harvest SnackMaster).

Years later, still learning, but have cut overall contamination rate to under 5%.
