Pre-grow questions/checklist.
    #4748533 - 10/03/05 10:51 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Ok, so after about a year of reading these boards and procrastinating, i have decided to gather the materials to start my first grow. I've got a couple questions before i start spending money though...

1. Ive decided on using birdseed substrate.Is the "Ryche Hawk's Growing Substrate" guide (found on this site) a good/easy technique as far as birdseed goes? I will be casing the colonized substrate.

2. I will be growing in an aprox. 1 1/2' x3' closet. Im assuming this is big enough for a modestly sized TiT?

3.The following is my understanding of the requirements for colonization.Please correct me if im wrong...Temp:75~78.Light:None. Should i use a dry substrate layer at the top of the jars if im using birdseed?

4.Ive read that shaking the colonizing jar is a good technique when colonizing birdseed. Are there any specifics to this or is it pretty much self-explanitory?

Those are my only immediate questions..Thanks alot in advance for your help

1. soak wbs for 24 hrs, rinse, simmer 1 hr, rinse, drain for 30 min or untill no drops of water come out of the strainer, PC 45 min.

2. get as big as tub as you can and still have room to work.

3. you want 80-85 deg. for incubation, 70-75 for fruiting. no you dont need to put dry verm on top of WBS, becuse you will be shaking your jars so itll just get mixed up anyway.

4. dont shake jar untill its atleaslt 25% colonized. some ppl let it go from there.. i shake mine at 50 & 75% also to make sure fully colonized

I am not lost.. i am going there looking for it.. and when i get there and find it, i will know what it is..

"are you sure u want to eat all them shrooms??"  "yes i want to hear what my mind has to say..."

remember opions are like assholes, everyone has one and they all stink.
