Some questions concerning my first grow
    #4639550 - 09/09/05 10:29 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Well I just received my jars I was waiting on to start my "project". Im going to be using a basic Vermiculite/Brown Rice Flour, I have a couple of PES Hawaiian syringes and 1 B+ syringe. Im thinking about going 12 jars for my first grow. Im going to use basic 1/2 pint wide mouth ball jars and I will be sterilizing them in a Presto 23 quart Pressure Cooker/Canner.

I have a couple of questions that ive had on the back of my mind for a while and I decided to try and get some answers.

During incubation is it better to tape of the holes on the caps, or should I leave them open?

Does humidity play any part either good or bad during incubation? My room is at a constant 74-75 degree fixed temp, I hear 70+ is suitable but that 80-86 allows for faster mycelium growth.

If I am able to attain the correct temp/humidity for shroom growth on cakes should I still spray the cakes with a spray bottle?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Edit:

I was also wandering how are the strains PES Hawaiian and B+ for a beginner grower?

do not tape the holes while incubating
humidity doesnt factor in while incubating cause the jars have enough moister to incubate
get the temp up to 84-86F to get the results you want.

if your humidity is right while fruiting then there is no need to spray
b+ is a good begginer strain

Is a heatpad ok to get about another 10+ degrees?
