Ok. So my spores came in finally. I inoculated 12. 1 pt jars and have 12 half or jars in the cooker now to innoculate tomorrow. I did the B+ and Ecuador today. I was as sterile as possible and used a glove box. Burned the needle after every jar. But some of my holes were too small so that sucks. Lesson learned there. But they are resting in y cuppord under my t.v. my little babies. Momma loves you ❤❤

Best of luck to you! For the holes, I found a nail that's just slightly larger than the needles and poked all my holes with that.

If you need a print, I can send you one. It wont be albino though. PM me and let me know if you need one, or if you were just interested in growing the albino, then no sweat. Us gals have to stick together.

Ok. Just did 7 half pint jars and a tupperware thing I wanted to try. I was really careful today. Its hard for me not to touch my face or hair for some reason. Should I keep these jars in a different place from the ones I did yesterday? Incase there was a contamination? Or am I just being silly?

You are good throwing them in the same space... If they are going to be contaminated, the damage is already done...

 

Set and forget... for a little....

 

not sure what tupperware thing you are trying, but I have a friend who tried over and over again to do a "tupperware thing" with the microwave and he never had any success with anything but trich... Good Luck though!

I wouldn't expect it to impact your colonizing jars if you have them covered with micro pore tape etc... Especially if you aren't opening it in that small enclosed space... BUT.... I would be prepared for it to not pan out... I also wouldn't want my successful jars to be covered with spores on their exterior... 

 

You can put it somewhere else to be safe if you want but I would be sure to open it in a safe space... Outdoors maybe...

 

Who knows, maybe it will work out for you. My friend swears he saw it work for someone before he tried it but he never had luck with it.

Yeah. I got the idea from a guy on the internet somewhere. I p cooked it along with the jars. We will see. I couldnt find all the hols either so it going to be a bit slow I think.

I've been doing cakes with dollar tree plastic containers in a tamales steamer. Probably will continue, even though I have pc now, cause now all my jars are reserved for agar.

Plastic works fine if you're steaming, and you follow the same tek rules.

The picture I posted is a tiny bit larger than typical pf. They work out to about 10oz. Pf tel calls for 8oz.

That's everyone - it's a funny "hurry up and wait" kind of hobby, but it teaches you a lot along the way  :)

 

Here's a great bulk tek that I use:

Great writeup for grain:

A decent percentage of what you do is going to fail, so it's good to be researching and starting the next project / round while you're waiting anxiously for RESULTS !

 

Welcome to mycotopia,

You can always try the chat as well. I check it often, it’s a good place for us newbies to talk/ask/learn/contribute.
