Woo Hoo!  Im a newbie! :smile:
Yeah Ive been eating/sleeping/living these fruits for a while now, and making them is the best part hehe.

Well, Ive done only one series of 12 1/2 pint jars, only one fell to contamination. Cased them in 3 coco coir casings, and they are looking great so far. Wish I had a digital camera to show em off ...  :wink:

Thanks for the contest dude, you rock!

What a great deal!
Here is how my first time went. When I was 19, I bought a white button mushroom kit, but left the button mycelium out of it. It was composed of 5 pounds of compost and vermiculite. I had a rye grain jar of some magical B+ threads and proceeded to dump it in. It colonized amazingly fast. I followed the directions explicitly, fanning and leaving the lid off, and placed it in my sister's dollhouse in the basement for safekeeping every night. I cased it with the peat/lime mix that came with it. The mycelium poked through the casing and I squealed in delight. I saw my first pin and was eager to yank it off and pop it in my mouth. I didn't sleep at night thinking of the carpophores soon to come. Pins finally came and I promised myself I would be patient. One day, I said "you know, I think I will pick the first flush tommorow". They had become tall and brown and carmelly topped. I went to sleep with visions of mushrooms dancing in my head. The next day, I woke to my stepdad moving boxes in the basement. I found him behind the dollhouse. I nervously offered a helping hand. I took a look at the back of the dollhouse to see my smurf housese dangling wildly from the side, beckoning to me to pick them. I swear he took some direct looks at them as I sweated. He soon went to work and I picked my magical friends. It was a close one. They turned out to give 4 beautiful heavy flushes until the compost was depleted. They found a new home after the dollhouse incident. They gave the most dreamy visuals, just like I dreamt they would be.

Hi,
I'm a newbie on my virgin run with some B+ spores from SporeWorks, a print to be exact. I cooked 12 jars, I bought a pressure cooker (4.2 quart), and it took me 12 hours to cook all the jars, they cooled for 7-8 hours. I cleaned my kitchen and used the Oven Tek to create a syringe & inoculate...creating the syring was more difficult than I'd planned. The spores would not come off the paper and I panicked! My scraper just couldn't get them off, and I dropped the paper into my previously sterile shot-glass! I knew that was a mistake.
Have been incubating for 11 days, now and only 1 jar showed contamination as of now. Two others showed absolutely nothing, I opened them yesterday and there was no contamination, they smelled the same as the day I filled the jars--very odd that they were still clean!
I dumped those jars into a woodpile in my yard and some spores that were leftover in my plastic bag from sporeworks--i figured why not, the worst that'll happen is nothing at all... So out of 12 jars, 9 still look ok. I'm incubating in my terrarium, it's insulated in a sheet & blanket. I have a space heater aimed at the terrarium and keeping it as close to 85 degrees as I can. The jars are about 1/8th colonized I would guess. I am flat broke, so I hope this time works out with at least minor success...I saw some absolutely beautiful pics of some fruiting mushies posted in response to this contest--good job! I hope my results look half that good! My babies won't be fruiting for a while yet, hope that doesn't eliminate me from the contest! I'm glad just to have the chance to try again, with some new spores...I'm trying my best, but who knows what will happen... Thanks,Mattycelium, for this contest!

As a real newbie (just inoculated my first 2 jars only yesterday) I have to react on this. I cannot share a lot because I am trifing on info coming from message boards.

I could not resist trying to was for the jar closing. One way came from the mushmush.nl way and the other I had made a small hole in the lid and placed some aquarium filterstuff ( the white stuff) in it. My first inoculation was easyest done with the second jar, cause I stuck the needle through it and was able to reach 4 side easy in a very short time.

Next time I also will try the way with the 4 small holes in the lid, covered with tape.

Bye the way I am doing it on sterilised Rye put in 720ml jars, not making cakes but spreading it out and covering it with casing.

Love an Peace,
MeneerCactus

Well, I'm a newbie to growing, but not to the shroomery.  Joined this wonderful place last year (in march i beleive) because I was interested in getting into psychadelics.  Man was this place perfect.  I soaked up so much knowledge I didn't know where to start.  I read tek after tek.  Each one with small variances on the previous.  I finally decided on the PF tek.  Bought a syringe.  Counted the days till it came.  Finally it came and I was so excited!!  I boiled my jars and inoculated the jars.  Waiting for the first signs of fluffy white myclium.  But unfortunantely.. none came.  All that showed up in that first batch of jars was yellow foul smelling spots.  But I didn't let that get me down.  I ordered another syringe and tried again.  This time I bought a pressure cooker too and.. VOILA!!  Mushrooms!  16 dry grams of Thai Koh Samui Cubensis.  Yum Yum. :smile: I have since then had one more batch fall to contams and one batch colonize succesfully.  I have my second batch of mushies fruiting right now actually.  Some nice EQs I got from the FSR (Thanks Ralph!)  I think what you're doing is great Matty.  I know what it feels like to have a whole batch ruined and it is allways nice to get reimbursed.

Thanks man, It's PF Hawaiian. I had six cakes but my
humidity got fouled up and they wouldn't pin. So I cased four
in one tray and two in a 2-litre. The critters got my big casing
but this one came on pretty good. This and a PF were the first
syringes I ever bought.(Dec.) The PF's recovered after I got my
humidity right but I'm kinda glad these didn't. Can't wait to
see how the PF casing goes. I may stop using cakes to fruit.
This may be a stupid question but, is the PES Hawaiian and the PF
Hawaiian the same strain? If they're not I'll swap you a
print if you want to. If they are, I disqualify myself. Peace

I would like to apply
Ive been attempting for about 3 months now, but no fruits.
Unortunately the first month was wasted on a mushroommagic kit
since Iv'e colonized a few jars and just setup my first casing in my terr

Was curious about what do do with spore prints once I produce them though. Being self sufficient would be nice.

I havent given up yet though =)
too much effort at this point
It's like it would be a blow to my character to give in.
