Here is a photo of invitro PF shrooms grown in a drinking glass.

These shrooms are actually the best because they are primordia with no spores yet. They are "ugly" but they look clean and uncontaminated. They are the ones for tripping, but lousy for asthetic growing.

and your PF strain is one of the best for invitro growing, am I correct?

I want to thank you, btw- I have been poring over this board, and thinking about your original tek and this and that- seems there'r things in there that have gone by the way side for new things- and seems some of that is good, but some of your original stuff might be good to bring back up and review-

For instance- you advocated growing at room temp- around 75 degrees.

It dawned on me one day, when my area was really warm- I panicked, wondering what might have taken root- I instinctively knew that was bad vis a vis new contams.

So, and other people have made comments to back those feelings up. So maybe use two temps- like Lichen having trouble with cake contams- maybe colonize some at lower temps, see what happens, see of they don't do better, albiet slower.

Wow did I get off track-

What I really wanted to say is no matter how far along branching paths people have gone beyond your basic tek, I think you're the one, basically, who put it all together, and put it in peoples homes, such that we now have boards like this. That's a big deal, and thank you.

incubation should be at around 80-85F, while fruiting should be at 75F. And while I usually do not have cake contams, I just pulled one that had trich...it's the jars that have been going south. And the damn straw. But I think I'm getting a handle on it. Outside contams had been getting in there on the feet of the fruitflies. Now that I have been keeping them out, I haven't had a problem, yet

The pic was from Yashic (of Holland - PFE fame)
It was completely cultivated inside the glass and the lid was removed and the jar put in a terrarium so that the primordia on the top could grow. If let be, the top primordia will turn into a very nice shroom, but the fruiting is ready for harvest.

My friend from Holland tries everything and is not afraid to try "crazy" stuff too.

He says that INVITRO rules for easy growing and he grows some nice flushes regular pf style also.

Thanx for putting the photo under the invitro tek.

The trick is to just watch the jar or glass for puddling and I like to suck out the puddling water with a thin straw or super long syringe needle (blunted for safety). Puddling seems to be the only real problem of invitro growing but it is very easy to remedy. All one has to do is watch the glass and suck out the puddled water.

what kind of results should one expect from growing invitro? im also not completely clear about this tek, do you let it grow the full term(6 weeks or whatever)? im growing mazatec, hawaiian, pf, and false mexicans. do any of these species benefit a great amount from this tek. what about Lighting for invitro?

Hi, I read about the double casing tek where vermiculite is placed both at the top and bottom of the jar. Will this work for the Invitro tek where the cake is never birthed or cased? Also, I have read that Ball half-pint tapered jars will work for PF tek but will they work for the Invitro tek just as well as wide mouths? Thanks a lot!

yeah, just put a thin layer of verm. in the bottom of the jar before loading in the rice/verm mixture for sterilization, that way you're double end cased invitro right from the start.
the tall tapered will work, but they can be difficult come harvest time to get the cake out, a few good firm raps on a hard surface helps.

Hello everyone, I'm about to grow invitro. I have a couple of questions. Can all Cubes be grown successfully and abdundantly using this method? (If this has already been posted, I apologize for overlooking it). Also, I know that water can pool up on the bottom of the jars. How do you remedy this problem? I've heard of using a straw, but I don't want suck that nasty water in my mouth.

Oh yeah I forgot one more thing. I'm guessing that since the shrooms don't grow to full maturity that you can't get spores from them. So, how do you reproduce these babies, cloning?

I don't have much Invitro experience. Other's will post behind me I am sure.

PF Classic is the best shroom for Invitro. When water pools, tip the jars and let the water run along the glass until it is absorbed by the Verm barrier.

You can birth Invitro jars, let the shrooms stand up, open up, and sporulate, You can also clone excellent cakes. I would propose cloning.

unfortunately, some strains are pretty reluctant to fruit invitro, for example, thai and cambodians..
most do ok, like hawaiians or ecuadors,
and a few excel, such as pf and australian or gulf coast.
some, like mazatec, i haven't tested yet.
once the cake is fully colonized, you can open the jar and clean out excess water as needed.
if you want spores invitro, simply transfer the cake to a quart jar.

THANKS guys for answering my questions. I couldn't of asked for any better experts on the subject of growing. It kinda sucks that not all Cubes can be grown Invitro. I was planning on growing Puerto Ricans, Pink Buffalos(Thai), PESA, and Ecuadors-which is about the only one that will work out of my selection. Oh yeah, I was going to put about 2 dozen jars or so in a Rubbermaid container and have a flourescent light above this. Is this all I need? I think so, just need a little reassurance.

I started this hobby 8 months ago and I still donít have anything to show for it. Iím still trying though. I have a few questions. I got my eq from Ralph a month ago. I inoculated 12 quart jars in total. 3 of them were filled with %4 malt solution. 9 of them were filled with %80 millet %20 earth worm castings. After one week I inoculated 36 more jars with the living malt solution. After three weeks the 9 quart jars and 36 quart jars are completely colonized with no contamination. None of the jars are tapered so I canít dump out the solid chunk of mycelium. I can still shake them though.

1. The first 9 jars were started from spores. Must I case them separately. Should I remove the spawn from the jars to other containers? Can I case them without taking them out of the jars?
2. The second 36 jars were inoculated from living malt solution. Must I case them separately. Should I remove the spawn from the jars to other containers? Can I case them without taking them out of the jars?
3. Would it be better if I emptied the contents of each jar into its own form?
4. Is the liquid malt solution compatable? Do the 36 jars have the same type of mycelium growing in them or are they all different? Can I mix them together?
5. Just got a couple bales of straw. I sure would like to inoculate it with the 36 jars that were started from the liquid culture. Is 10-20 percent a good spawn to straw ratio?
6. I have six translucent Rubbermaid storage bins
7. What do you think? Please offer any teks you think would help me out.

Thanx in advance,
Potomac

The answer to each of your question is; forget it and start over. If you are a beginer, than the tek you describe is practically guaranteed failure. Go with the PF tek (http://www.fanaticus.com) for your first 5 times at least. You should not even try to mess with that stuff you tried until you have grown a dry pound or so. The number one cause of newbie failure is trying to get ahead of yourself.

Wow... Here we go guys...

It sounds to me like you started this entire germination from a single sterile sporeprint from Ralph... So we are only dealing with one strain. So all of your mycelium is compatable. It's all EQ from a single print, you have no worries here.

Straw is ambitious. You should try to fruit most of these jars directly from the grain. You have lots of choices:

Pie Pan Casing Tek; Quart Jar Invitro; most any Casing Tek

nothing to it.
just add about a half inch of casing on top,
mist it a bit,
and place into the terrarium.
give it light, humidity about 75-80%,
air exchanges 2-3 times daily,
temp about 75-80*F.
then just wait...

I have found that if you do maybe 1 or 2 jars in a dozen only filled 1/2 way up with substrate, and use no vermic. barrier, you can get a few to poke up to the empty space and open normally.--that way you can get prints, and make your own syringes. This makes it even more stealth. No more paranoia in ordering prints/syringes, and no more fear that mom will thing you are getting mailorder heroin!!

thanks hip
1 contamed pint = 2 contamed 1/2's
I would call that a risk versus reward thing.

I would need to see a reward in the dry grams yielded per cu. ft. of space used- to say that the compartmentalization against contams with the 1/2's is worth ditching in favor of less innoculation labor with the full pints.

Half pints are good for Hip
They should work for me, just fine.

Hip Questions--

How about invitro substrate recipes?

I know you like the classics on BRF. Have you worked with anything that outperforms them?

Have your invitro yields, on the whole, remained as good as they have been relayed to us on the PF site?

Thanks for the learned guidence

haven't grown mazs yet, i'm still waiting for my syringes of it, like you.
any race can benefit from a pre-flush dunk, but pf's definitly need it because it creates so many pins that much more water is needed, or they'll all abort.
you can dunk with small pins present safely, but do it b4 they get very large.
