I have been doing some personalised, weirdo-style tek using grain, verm and fruit bad guano but coming to see that this isn't really a widely-used tek and therefore I have massively-reduced faith in it actually coming to fruit. I obtained some GT syringes from a contact on r/sporetraders so for a special deal I purchased a guide and a couple bags of pre-made sub.
Enter: the massive online trove of freely-offered teks to choose from.
- Wild bird seed (WBS tek)
- Brown rice flour (BRF tek)
- dub tubs
- shotgun fruiting chambers
- popcorn teks
- Broke boi tek
How do you guys decide? Is there some kind of flowchart for figuring out which one, or does it literally come down to what the grower is comfortable with? For example, WBS takes a whole bunch of soaking and rinsing and they might still be too sticky but supposed to be a great sub if you prep it right. Same with broke boi: you have to be careful to cook the rice just right but it takes minimal sanitation against contams in the sub-prep stage. BRF is a favorite of the old timers, at least it looks like it is but still respected by newbies to honor to old.
Is it literally a case of picking one at random and test, learn, repeat?
