PF Tek
    #4576836 - 08/24/05 11:53 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I know this belongs in the growlog forum but it seems more would see it here that can use it. That and I?m sure most have seen it already but maby somebody can use this to help them out.

Grow Log
Tek : PF
Strain : South American [SA]
Spores : Came from homemade prints. 36 total jars to be injected.
Substrate :Brown Rice Flour [BRF] and Vermiculite [Verm]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10:15 PM 3/4/03 : Project is started. Jar prep is just putting small holes in the lids for the spore syringe and then taping them closed until inoculation. Tape used is the standard black electrical tape. First batch of jars is mixed. The mix used is 2 parts verm, 1 part water, and 1 part brf. [ This mix is the max fruiting formula by PF.] Mix is put into 1/2 pint canning jars lightly, not packed in, and left it airy. Put substrate in until it reaches the threads of the jar, then add dry verm the rest of the way.
Jars are PCd at 10psi or 240f for a period of 45 minutes. Then jars were left to sit overnight to cool.

<a href="https://files.shroomery.org/files/040103-23/23611-pic_1.jpg" target="_blank"></a>

8:39 PM 3/5/2003 : First batch of jars injected. (24 jars)

10:04 AM 3/6/2003 : Incubator is running to low 77F. Going to turn it up today.

<a href="https://files.shroomery.org/files/040103-23/69842-Pic_2_.jpg" target="_blank"></a>

5:45 PM 3/6/2003 : Second batch of jars is in the PC will be injected tomorrow. Turned up incubator runs at 83F. 86F is the best and if the incubator is 83F and myc growing in the jars is suppose to create a little heat I figure this should work out well.

1:11 PM 3/7/2003 : Second batch of jars is done. (12 jars)

12:10 PM 3/9/2003 : Jars are doing good, no signs of contams

<a href="https://files.shroomery.org/files/040103-23/74102-Pic_3_.jpg" target="_blank"></a>

2:54 AM 3/19/2003 : Tape removed from the holes today and coffee filters put over the top of the jars for added protection. Holes were opened so the CO2 in the jars could escape. I gave 12 jars to a friend who kept fucking up. 24 jar?s about 75%done.

<a href="https://files.shroomery.org/files/040103-23/89166-Pic_4.jpg" target="_blank"></a>

12:13 PM 3/22/2003 : Well it?s Saturday and the jars will probably be done by the 25th. So it was 36 jars. 12 were given to a friend, 24 done by Tuesday.

10:26 PM 3/23/2003 : 15 jars were done enough to put into dunk. I dunk and cold shock before birthing and after every flush. The other 9 jars have a spot the size of a pea that has to be covered so I?ll do those on the 25th.

<a href="https://files.shroomery.org/files/040103-23/81008-pic_5.jpg" target="_blank"></a>

7:17 PM 3/24/2003 : 15 jars put into the pod. Put in and put a layer of moist verm on top. With geolite I just put the cakes on it. With some other chambers I put the cake on a lid filled with verm. This is done to give the shrooms on the bottom and the top of the cake some added moisture.
The other 9 jars just finished so I?m going to give them a couple more days to make sure the middle of the cake is done.

<a href="https://files.shroomery.org/files/040103-23/68648-Pic_6.jpg" target="_blank"></a>

4:57 PM 3/27/2003 : 5 More cakes birthed today, 4 left going to do them tomorrow or 3/29/2003

3:58 PM 3/29/2003 : Well I lost another cake. My wife?s little 1 cake pod made from a 2 liter and a small fish pump and a little geolite used up her last cake so I gave her a SA to grow. The last 3 are in the cold shock dunk.
So the total is 36 jars done all colonized with no contams. 12 given to a friend, 1 to the wife, 23 mine

12:08 PM 3/30/2003 : Last of jars put in

12:02 PM 3/31/2003 : The first 15 cakes are pinning nicely and some have shrooms coming from the bottom.

<a href="https://files.shroomery.org/files/040103-23/38858-Pic_7.jpg" target="_blank"></a>

11:01 AM 4/3/2003 : Things look to be going well.

<a href="https://files.shroomery.org/files/040103-23/55988-Pic_8_.jpg" target="_blank"></a>

1:02 AM 4/4/2003 : Took the first flush from four of the cakes. More will be done later today.

<a href="https://files.shroomery.org/files/040103-23/36336-Pic_9.jpg" target="_blank"></a>

5/8/2003 : Total 23 cakes 164 grams dried.

From what I?ve seen this needs to be up for a little bit.

Mag,

Might want to note that the electrical tape shouldn't make an airtight seal on those jars. I was lucky my first time that I disinfected the working area very well, because most of the jars sucked in air. Could have been a contam nightmare.

It's good to see the old school posts, though. :smile:

Magash,

I always take your advice to heart, but as far as newcomers go, I gotta let agar take the stage... Agar post what you know is right!

:grin:

There is nothing wrong with the PF-TEK.

Newcomers seem to usually have an idea of what they are capable of. Some are fine with messing with poo, some don't.

Agar and Magash do things the right way, they just do different things. Agar has never even done a cake before, but yes he has the bulk down.

I thik newbies should read both teks and decide for themselves which one they feel more comfortable with.

But let me say kimikiri, I am not defending the PF-TEK here. Though it is a tried and true way of growing, I still prefer the bulk grows anyday.

Clutch...  :heart:
I was actually trying to give Agar a hard time, because I am always trying to get him to post this picture of his that I just love and can be applied to the PF tek... I have used this step by step pictoral with 1/2 pint jars and brf with much success!


I guess it was a joke that you missed :confused:

Why do you think you cant do a bulk using the PF-Tek?? :confused:
Some of my best grows started out with the old BRF PF-Tek :thumbup:

>Why do you think you cant do a bulk using the PF-Tek??
I don't. I know you can, but I was mainly implying that newbies either want to mess around with poo, or they don't. This Tek is for the ones that don't. Roadkill has a good one that combines the two.

>I guess it was a joke that you missed
yea, guess I missed the joke.


Sorry for the confusion guys.
