Revolutionary new tek or just plain garbage?
    #842384 - 08/25/02 04:33 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

After I failed at my 7th attempt at growing shrooms I have pondered and think I have a tek that will actually work! Here's how it goes...

Mix half and half of verm and brf in a bowl.
Dump it into a pot of water.
Boil for a few minutes and stir until brf is well mixed.
Turn off heat and strain.
Keep verm and dump water.
Press verm while it's on the strainer to remove excess water.
Dump some substrate in zip lok bags.
Innoc. by sterilizing syringe and injecting about 1cc into each ends of the bag.
Tape inoc holes.
Wrap duct tape around parts of bag where substrate is visible except at the top (the sides and bottom).
Wait...

And then you just fan twice a day and give light after mycelium completely takes over.

What do you all think of this? Will it even work? I'm thinking the BRF will mix with the water and the verm will absorb most of it.

Well first of all most of the BRF will wash out with the water when you strain the Verm. Maybe if you mixed it after you boiled the verm it would work but its probably not worth the trouble. Personally, I think if you follow the PF Tek to the letter youll be just fine. My first two attempts were failures, then I decided to follow the PF Tek as if it were rocket science and it worked. I wouldnt go inventing things until youve done the PF Tek a few times successfully.

Just my two cents.

What do ya think if I put the BRF into the bag after the verm and then mixed it around in there with a big spoon?

I hate the PF tek. I can't find the jars anywhere and I hate boiling them and how much time it takes...

I think you're asking for contamination.

There's a reason why you must boil them for that long. You're trying to kill any possible contaminants. If you can't find the jars, improvise. Use whiskey glasses and foil or something. Put your McGyver hat on a figure it out...

Why is every new member trying to invent revolutions and improvise on proven teks? Follow the PF tek, like everyone else did. Even the super-pro's started with the PF tek.

Just follow the tek

Where did you look for the jars? Any small jars will do. How much money are you spending and on what? (Not that spending money will give you shroms) What steps are you skipping, if any, in the PF TEK?

I don't want to get in a fight about Fd. I just merely stated a fact. Everyone calm down before this turns all crazy. I swear every post I'm reading lately is full of people arguing. I just thought it was funny that he was calling someone a new member. I'm sure he's a nice guy.

I didnt check his joining date, i only looked at his post. Maybe he's not new but there is always someone with less that 100 posts trying to create some magic tek that will cure all our ailments..... its not going to happen!

Im not new to the shroomery. I have been visiting this site for many years. A few years ago I had a different handle but left when my comp got wasted . Anyways, I didn't mean to offend any of you by suggesting a new tek that wouldn't use 1/2 pint jars. Mickey, your shot glass idea is a wonderful idea! I think I will try it actually but it sounds like contamination is risky. I have no prob boiling shot glasses for 2 hours but not 12 1/2 pint jars or 6 quart jars in some huuge pot!

What was your prob with the PF tek? I'm guessing it was contamination. Get yourself a PC, it is a good investment for $20-$40. It should be able to get to 15 psi and 121 degrees Celcius. These conditions for about 20-30 mins will kill most everything you'll have in your jars. Go to your local whatever-mart , and look in the tupperware/glassware stuff for cooking and get any 250ml jars. They work just as well, except that you may not be able to use filter disks as easy. And wait atleast till your 101st post to suggest a new idea. What were you thinking.........

Temperature is the most important in my opinion...

You can see that temps are verry specific and narrow. Spawn in the desired temp and fruit in the desired temp and you will have success.

To me everything else is important but only work to improve yeilds. Ive seen shrooms grow with little humidity and no air exchanges but never outside of their temprature range.
