Newbie Here Greetings!
    #4317286 - 06/20/05 04:15 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Greetings All!
First time poster here... been lurking around for a few days and have been doing quite a bit of reading on here.... I have ordered one half gallon jar from mushbox.com and one syringe of b+ from spore101.com. My plan is to inoculate the half gallon jar with the entire syringe than put jar on a heating pad with a towel between the two... going to hopefully get the jar to colonize with out no cotam problems.... Than after the jar is colonized I think for all practical purpose I'm going to try the perlite method and get a clear tupper ware type container... fill it about 2" with perlite, mix water and hydro-prox together before putting on perlite, than I'm going to maybe pour the water in to a bowl filled with the perlite and than drain off any excess water that way I know that there isn't too much water.... than I'm going to take out the cake from the jar into a zip lock type freezer bag, knock the cake into the bag... than I'm going to break up the cake into pieces bout the size of a malt ball, than spread over the perlite in the Tupperware container.... Opening container about twice a day to circulate air, and hopefully that will get me some results... Does this sound like a good plane? Any suggestions?
Thanks and thanks for all the info I'm learning on here guys...
I'm so looking froward to my first yield.... Just came back from Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago and had some incredible shrooms there.... ever since coming back home i have been obsessed with growing my own... Take Care All

Hmm.... there is 12 views and no replies. I am guessing a bunch of people read it and really didnt know where to start. You dont break up cakes on perlite, you leave them whole. You break up cakes to case... etc.  What I am saying is you have like 2 or 3 teks all rolled into one (Amsterdam is still with you) :stoned:

You need to just pick *ONE* tek, and follow it verbatim. Don't try and improvise your first time.

I guess my first post was long winded and probably isnt written all that well... but is the general idea i have right? Inoculate the sterlie jar wait till it colonzies and than read some teks on perlite humidification? cause the the couple of teks i read said to break the cakes up and was ok to put right ontop of perlite or ontop of jar cover... im just thinking having such a big jar(half a gallon)it would be better to crumble cake and spread over perlite....

you need to trow out your half gallon jar and get a case of 1/2 pint or pint jars (wide mouth). if you put all of your eggs in one basket and get contams it would kill an entire project. if you have 12 jars, you can throw that one bad one away and not waste a month and a half. one syringe will innoc. 12 jars. just flame the needle with an alc lamp or a wind proof lighter b/w jars.

Hey do to money reason Im unable to just throw out the half gallon jar that I brought.... What suggestions would you guys have with what to do with my half gallon jug? Im willing to put all my eggs in one basket and just hope all works out well.... if not when $$$ is not a problem in another month or so I will buy the 12 jars.... but for now the half gallon and the one syringe is all I got....

if you have some glasses that you wouldn't miss they would work as jars. just fold a piece of foil and cover for the first layer, and put an additional piece over that one. when innoc. take the top layer off, and stab through the next two... but a half gallon cake would eventually make the biggest and the most shrooms a cake has ever made...

The whole purpose of those half gallon jars is to be used as spawn. You should really just get some manure and spawn to it.

:thumbup: on that  one. even though it is your first grow this is definitely achievable. your idea may work for ya, but there are better ways. if you stick with the jar either break it up and case it or spawn it to poo.
good luck with what you decide.
peace

If you feel your up to it you could make some liquid cultures.
If you search AGAR's posts for "Liquid Cultures: The Easy Way"
It utilizes Karo Syrup and baby bottles total of 4 to 6 dollars.
Just put half a CC in each and you can save'um in the fridge for a couple of months or till you get some jars n supplies.....then you wouldnt have to get another syringe right away...and when you inoculate it will save you about 3 days it would normally take for the spores to germinate..

Its rather easy I think you can do it if you stay sterile..

Good luck..
