New to the board....a few questions on growing. Help a newbie out!
    #4379037 - 07/07/05 09:24 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Okay, this is my first post. I've been reading posts here for a little while now and everyone here seems to be very well informed. Glad to be a part of the community. Now for the questions. I'm going to be using the PF-TEK method for my first grow. I've heard WalMart carries just about all the supplies needed beside spores. My questions are....

I'm going to start out with about 12 canning jars. How many spores will I need to inject in each jar?

Do I need a new syringe for every jar?

I've heard mushrooms lose potency as they grow bigger. When do I cut them? The strains I will be using are probably creepers and Thais.

What and how do I remove the mushrooms? Scissors, hands, etc...

Should I dunk the cakes before the first flush?

Should I use a humidifier?

Out of curiosity, what is the soonest possible time I could I have mushrooms If I began the procedure tomorrow and followed all steps perfectly?

Last but not least, who the hell is SWIM?


I know this might seem like a lot but I think I'll be set after this. Gonna stick to the PF-TEK until I become more advanced. Thanks for reading and any help is greatly appreciated.

you should be able to use only 1 10cc syringe for 12 jars.

No, just one.

You dont cut them, you kinda pull n twist them off the cake with your fingers(they come right off). Harvest when or just before the partial veil ruptures from the cap.

Yes you should dunk and roll before the first flush.

4-5 weeks... but it will likely take you a couple months..

Edit: no dont use a humidifier your first time through... just buy some perlite.

Happy Trails!
