Kits and fungi strains
    #4670935 - 09/16/05 08:08 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

After failing at growing my own shrooms twice because of contams, i figured id ask you guys for help and advice. I'm interested in buying a kit not an expensive one just one that's sterile and also I'm interested in getting the fastest colonizing strain of M. Mushroom i can find from a spore bank. I would greatly appreciate any help you guys can give. Heh i tried these things once taking 7 grams dried. lol best experience of my life, but its impossible to find any around here. THX !

PS tobad we cant get kits ready to spawn in the US.

From the posts I've read since I've been here...pre-sterilized jars and bags contam nearly as often as those done at home. This tells me that inoculation is probably the source for most contam problems.

I followed the pf tek extremely closely and was super anal about everthing involved being wiped or sprayed down with disinfectant.

Even though it was my first time I still was able to keep 8 jars contam free for 30 days before birthing. I still have 4 jars incubating(31+ days) also without contams. 12 out of 12 contam free simply because I followed directions and have been very particular about sterilization through the whole process.

My advice, since you already know the process, is to try again and be extremely particular about sterilization.... especially during the inoculation.

Every time you pull that needle out of a hole you need to wipe it down with alcohol, and wipe the lid around the next hole to be injected, with alcohol.

Well I didnt use alcohol, i did sterilized the needle before the innoc using a butane flame, I'll try again. But what about a fast colonizing strain that isnt dirt weak. I dont know to much about the strains i just hate to wait any longer than i have too.

Hell, they said that Golden teacher was supposed to be pretty fast but my results were evidently not typical. Can't help you there...sorry.

I would say that trying again to do it by yourself and reading a bit more on being sterile would teach you a lot more in the long run than with just a kit, but that's my opinion. Good luck with whichever road you take! :smile:
