Pesa Prob...
    #605686 - 04/11/02 07:04 PM (22 years, 10 days ago)

I bought 2 strains from a vendor. I am using 12 pint jars (6 per strain, 2 cc's per jar) and Hawk's Formula. PC'd for 75 minutes. The Thai strain is alomost done 3 weeks later. 2 of the Pesa's contaminated...and the ones that didn't only have grown about the size of a quarter. Is pesa a slow colonizer, or did I get a bad syringe?

pesas are fast, same as thai, something with ur jars, either dry or too wet.

In my experience Pesas are slow starters, but once they get going, they're fast. Mine didn't show signs of life for over two weeks and then boom.

Hmm yeah that is strange.

You really should have gotten much quicker results from both of those strains. Your mixtures could have been screwed up...(being too dry or too wet).

My PESA's first showed signs of growth within 2 days, and were done in 9 days. The mycelium is EXTREMELY white in color. Mine was more cottony kine than ryzhmorphic.

All of the pint jars I ever tried with pf tek sucked. Try to find
some half pints. It will really make a difference.

Well, I used the exact same mix in all jars...and incubated at 86 degrees...the Thai took off like they should...I think I got a bad syringe...

dont blame it on the syringe, if there was growth at all then it was your fault, you dont do the PF tek in pint jars, it results in SLOW growth.... this was most likely your fault for not following directions, its not cool to blame it on a syringe... now if you got Zero germination that might be a different story.

The thai strain can with stand too wet a mix and keep creeping along. My guess is the mix was too wet.

Going crazy will drive you mad, but once you get there the rest is easy....All spores are not created equal!!!!!!!!!!! Sporeworks, Hawkseye, PF, they are completely viable with very strong genetics.

either to wet or just not using half pints! like the dude above said, you should be following directions and not just doing things your own way... follow instructions until you master somthing, then experiment when you actually know what you're doing. the pf tek specifically says not to use 1 pint jars because they are colonize to slow and are more prone to contams, along with a few other reasons.

you don't have a bad syringe..

15 minutes longer wont hurt much-

make sure when u get 1/2 pints u get the right kind-

i didnt
i have been using the wrong jars since i started and didnt know-
they have tall skinny wide mouth and short fat wide mouth-

i have the tall skinny-the take forever to finish,but they produce hell of flushes-

i am going to buy some of the other jars this weekend-maybe it will help me-
my wal mart just set up an entire canning isle for some reason-is it the season?
i thought that came in the fall-(they sensed i was comning)
