Is this ok for a newbie?
    #933697 - 10/05/02 02:45 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

keep a clean and proper work enviroment.
start off with either florida type or mexicana syringe spores.
Follow the pf-tek for dummies.
I have read much and will try that solution but i have a few ?'s.

after boiling or pressure cooking the jars and after inserting the syringe and letting
it germinate. How do you birth the cake?.
Also after transfering the cake to your fruiting chamber how many hours of light do they need and is warmer or colder better 75 or 85 for fruiting?
ALSO how do u know when to pick the shrooms exactly.
and whats the best way to remove them from the cake?
also how do you flush.im lost on that one.
other then that this forum has thought me so much.thanks guys.

Mexicana 4 a newbie.........sure go for it, but I would stick w/ p.cube's first.

>>>How do you birth the cake?<<<

be very clean, not super, but CLEAN. Push/Brush the dry verm layer off. Now, either: slip the cake out, turn it twords your palm ' and smack it down ' should also slip right out, if thoese dont work; sterylize a kinfe, stick the cake in the middle, apply some pressure to the side of the knife against the cake, and *pop* slip it out.

>>>how many hours of light do they need<<<

Everyone says 12/12 is the best way to go. Get it on routine. My friend only got good results when I got em on routine.

>>>warmer or colder better 75 or 85 for fruiting?<<<

huh??

>>>how do u know when to pick the shrooms exactly.<<<

Minutes/up to an hour after the veil breaks. Ya want em potent, not big.

>>>whats the best way to remove them from the cake?<<<

Grab the base of the mushie, twist and pull. You want em potent, not brusied.

>>>how do you flush<<<

Let the mushies worry about that =)

Oh dude, 1 syringe should do more then just two cakes... It should do at least 6 I'd say...

Depends on how big your fruiting chamber is, remember your mush needs room to grow  :cool:  If it gets too big, make another chamber I guess. 

Experiment, don't be afraid! 

Just be clean!! That is truly rule number one!!  G'luck!!

These are very basic and ignorant questions that hould have not been answered and only by the FAQ's. You should really do your research on these questions ev eryone will appreciate you as a newbie this way.

yes, I agree with shroomsformike.
there are SO many different procedures out there...that you just need to study up and choose one to start out with...if that does not work out...modify.
that is what mycology IS!!!  I would be willing to offer suggestions or comment upon what you have already done for yourself but to sit you down and  TELL you HOW to grow shrooms...now that would hardly be fair, eh??  :wink:
Might piss my Iguana off...seeing as HE'S the one who has done all the studing up and applied his smarts... :tongue:
