Hi gang. New here. New to shrooms. 50+ year pot head/grower. Just wondering what I can expect from my first grow. I plan to do PF Tek. I have everything ready to go except the spores and they should be here any day.
My buddy told me that when he grew shrooms many years ago, out of 24 jars, all but 3 or 4 were contaminated. Seems like a high failure rate to me.
I have 10 jars. 10 ml syringe of spores. I made a still air box. I don't have a pressure cooker so I'll be sterilizing on the stove in a pot. I have read a ton of tuts and watched a ton of vids. There are conflicts among the info (which is typ on the internet) but for the most part, I know how to follow instructions and I have everything in line. Hoping for a much better success rate than he had. He didn't do PF Tek. He used agar and went that way. I guess this was before PF posted his method for PF Tek.
I'm not looking for a bonanza the first time but I would like to see a relative measure of success.
If shrooms help me out with my Bi-Polar and depression and OCD and AADD and the other mental issues I have, I'll be growing bigger crops. PF looked like a fun intro method.
Well gang, thanks for being here and I'm sure I'll have some questions along the way. I'll post some pics once it gets going.
