my first try was by far my most successful cake tek ever. I pulled off more than 5 oz dry from around 24 pints worth of substrate in under 2 months. My first casing attempt was thwarthed by contams, but I have since improved on that.

I'm a first-timer, and just enjoyed the fruits of my labor last night. Ahhh success!!!! It's a great feeling! I used the standard PF tek and had great results.
My advice is:
*use perlite (it's sooo much easier/cheaper than a humidifier)
*use lots of lysol
*read, read, read all you can about cultivation
*be patient!!!

I had success approx 3 months after I first started. My first batch of cakes didn't go well, but I believe that was because I didn't dunk them(They felt Dry). Immediately after that I started casing and habe had success ever since.
My first Hawaiin casing was one of the prettiest first flushes I have ever had. Since then I have improved on later flushed as well as even mycelia growth.

1st time for Baby was a bust! T3 syringe from Micron. Syringe was potent, had great colonization of cake. 4 mnths after birthing one small mushroom and then contamination. Trial and error life is an experiment!

quack,

I had great sucess my first go around......in fact I was a little suprised at how good I did.
I read everything I could get my hands on.
I followed the PF Tek to the "T".

Now I do experiment....and try new things.....but I don't suggest that beginners stray from the known Teks that work til they at least have some shrooms to show for there hard work.

I had some jars go bad on my 3rd batch.....and it was upseting.....but contams happen to the best of us..... live and learn.
I try to learn something new everyday.... If I do.....it was a good day !

Good luck to you !
Have a Shroomy day !

I had sucsess the first time ...after waiting FOREVER for the jars to colonize.
It took 5 months for about 75% colonization......Pre steralized jars from JLF.
I birthed them anyway and they colonized the rest of the way in the fruiting chamber.
Then it was another MONTH until and pins popped out.....but still a good experience......you WILL learn something everytime. PEACE

Also ...I did try the cakes then went straight to bulk.
I found rye grain/spawn much easier and much more rewarding.
No more cakes for me:)

My first try I had 2 cakes fall to contaminations used 6 in 2 3 jar casings and birthed 4 as cakes.
No idea what the weight was i got off of all of them but i do know that my freinds and I were stoned about every second night for the last 3 weeks
They were Eq shrooms and seemed alot stronger than the ones we usually buy around here. Didn't even let them dry to eat them though just popped em off cleaned em up and ate em

I had pretty good success my first time. I only tried 6 1/2 pint cakes and kept one cake and made 2 casings. I made a page with pics of the progress of the first flush. I got a lot of little shroomies, but they got bigger second flush. I got a total of 4 flushes from the cake and 5 from both casings before contam got 'em. I harvested a total of about 2 oz. dry. They are Hawaiin strain from PF.

Lol get this. I already got my ass jumped for naming a source so I hope this is acceptable. My first 5 times were a TOTAL failure and I was to new and did practically zero vendor research prior to buying my first syringes. I guess this source in question  is KNOWN for selling bad syringes that are just contamination waiting to happen. I had no idea a spore syringe could be the issue. Anyways I would knock up 12 jars and 5 days later just have a little colonization and TONS of contam on my cakes...I started trying everything to figure it out. I even made control jars like jars I prepped the exact same just never inoculated to see if they would get contaminated as well. Every time my controls were fine but my inoculated jars would get contams. I finally thought maybe something is getting in when I stick the needle in so I took WHAT I THOUGHT was a totally empty syringe just stuck it in the hole moved it around a little bit pulled it back out and covered it up with micro pore tape and left it sit.......to my TOTAL AMAZEMENT about 8 days later I went to check on it and NO SHIT there was colonizing mycelium!! I don't know how the hell for the life of me this happened but this cake took FOREVER to fully colonize long story short this cake went on to grow my first 3.5 dried grams of mushrooms. How in the hell this ever happened I don't know there had to be a little viable solution still in the needle when I put it in and somehow it was just enough to get in colonize and NOT CONTAMINATE. After I had this crazy breakthrough that spawned me finally doing vendor research and learned without a doubt as soon as I typed the name in on Google every single post came back "you won't ever grow anything but contams with these guys" switched my source and ever since then I have had success. I recently had 2 jars of Puerto Rican that I had to toss but guarantee it was an error on my end somewhere. Just wanted to share my very crazy but very TRUE experience about my first time!!

Order from shroomery sponsors who follow proper procedures. Can't go wrong with them.

While waiting for the spores on agar I ran two cakes (rye/vermiculite) with leftover spore solution. They yielded about 100g wet weight and a well growing clone for upcoming monos
