i know when i started my soak that i can the water 2" off the grain and a hr later i checked it and it soaked up the water to where the water was level with the grain so i went ahead and put 5" more of water and it stayed perfect then all the rinsing and stuff i done with it you'd think that it would be perfect and i did shake like hell when done pcing to redistribute the grain. i even just did so b4 the pictures. should i go ahead and shoot them up with 1 ml. of spores or not?:mistrust:

starting to think maybe i should've added some wet verm.

well after like 2 months or so of hoping something will happen with my pf jar i cooked up some wbs and just knocked them up after doing so i decided to tear apart my brf cakes and see what exactly happened since i got no progress out of them.

1st conclusion was fae i just had a small hole for that
2nd i found that it only colonized on the outside of the cake not the inside plus i noticed about a quarter size circle wasnt colonized on the out side of em.

so i decided to take a picture after i tore them apart to see if there was any type of trich or something growing on the inside. so here the pictures and i didnt see no trich so im thinking it was the fae and cobweb maybe wetspot got the best of my cakes. :eusa_booh

ok
couple more questions if you wouldn't mind
how much spore solution did you end up using
1 mil like you said
also what is the timeline of the pics
it seems like you inoculated the jars on 10/30 maybe
and you posted the pics today
so that seems like a good bit of growth to me
did you make the syringes yourself
or were they from a vendor
and just one more question
can you mention the brand of seed you used
or where you got it from
thanks for posting your experiences
i haven't found your other thread from your first grow
my first grow produced nothing but bacteria
so we both have a failed first grow in common
i'm looking to start all over
and your grow is very encouraging
thanks

Q:how much spore solution did you end up using
A:ya i used 1 ml each jar b4 i used i swirled the syringe.

Q:timeline of the pics it seems like you inoculated the jars on 10/30
A:ya i knocked up on the 30th got to agree these spores like grain

Q:did you make the syringes yourself
Q:were they from a vendor
A:yes and no i got the refill kit for hillbilly it comes in a pint jar for $50 with i think 250ml in it. so i done hippies airport syringe and a regular syringe to get them out, and dont for get to sterilize your syringes for a hour .

Q:brand of spores
A: p.ricans


by the way feel free to ask anything i will answer them the best i can im new to this my self and had always had a interest in working with mushies.
remind you i've read, read, and read for months b4 i decided to try this and still have questions, and at the same time i think as long i post my log on here i will get the best responses. pictures are good too.

i have no clue to how i screwed my 1st pftek up but i done everything possible to make things happen correct includes pcing syringes, jars, and used alcohol, lysol, and burn the tip of the syringe and rubbed down with alocol and kept in the a.swab until pushed in to each jar and kept the a.swab around it the whole time afterwards.

good luck

quick tips i plan to use for next ones

this 1 for the soak

i also think im gonna go with a worm casting/ coco coir/ verm casing

i plan on crushing up the colonized wbs and putting back into my tit chamber/incubator for 3 days then casing with the above 1 in thick

unless someone here can give me a better way of doing so remind you right now only have coir, verm and worm castings

thanks livewire420
but now that i read a bit more
i think wbs is not an option for me
seems that a pc is the only way to go with wbs
i wish you the best of luck
and i will be checking this log as you update
thanks again
