PF-Tek for Simple Minds - New to this, few Q's
    #4706540 - 09/24/05 08:20 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Hey guys, what's up. I found this site http://www.fungifun.org/pf/pf_en.htm#glaeser and it seems like its very easy to do. I just have a few questions:

1. During Incubation, it says  The jars should be stored at 21-27?C (70-81?F), the warmer the better, but not exceeding 27?C. Which is fine, but I was hoping if my room is a few degrees off here n there(for example 84F) should it be okay? Also I thought its ideal for mushrooms to grow at 86 or 87F?

2. Then it says:  Dependent on the temperature it takes 14-25 days for the mycelium to colonize the whole substrate. After this is accomplished store the jars at normal room temperature, about 21?C (70?F). Okay I know for a fact our house temp is usually always at 80F. Will this hurt the gains?

3. During Fruiting, it says to take the cake out of the jar to put in the bucket. It says to put it out backwards and all, can I not touch the cake with my hand at all to put in the bucket? Is that a big NO NO? Bc it would be hard I'd imagine by trying to remove the foil and sliding the cake in the bucket without touch of the hand.

4. When I buy the Spore Syringe it comes in usually 10-12CC. Let's say I only use 2CC for my first trial, Can I just store the rest away for later use? Or does it go bad if I don't use it soon?

Sorry for the long post, thanks for reading.  :smile:

1.)the warmer the better, but room temp is just fine.

2.)i think you'll be alright

3.)i touch my cakes, just clean your hands and dont handle it much and not too rough

4.)you can store it for a long time. people suggest refrigerating it, but i dont think its necessary. Dont keep it at a place where it will constantly get hot

Quit reading my mind!

1. yeah it'll be ok. yes 85-86 is prime temp for colonization but it is said the myc produces a little bit of heat while colonizing so a bit lower on the temp won't hurt.

2. no it won't hurt but if you are talking about storing them until you are ready to birth them then the best place to store them is in the fridge.

3. yes it is ok to touch it with your hands just be very gentle so you don't bruise the myc all up, touch them only as much as you have to.

4. use about 1cc per jar, 1/4 cc per hole and put the cap back on the needle. syringe in a ziploc and store in the fridge, it will last for a very long time.

losfreddy: Thanks for your information man, appreciate it.

backupwards: on #2 you mention to store them in the fridge until birth, im confused. Is giving birth the same concept as "Incubation" as the url states?

incubation is the period of time that the myc colonizes the substrate (brf cake). birthing is when you take them out of the jar and put them in the fruiting chamber.

you can store cakes/substrates in the fridge to stall growth until the time you are ready to use them (birth the cakes).
i'm not sure what else #2 could mean, except when you go potti. lol

:peace:
