Lol you need to read.. do you wanna start easy and work up? hone the basics? go with pf tek cakes.. Brown rice flour.. if you can't find it get brown rice and pulverize it with a good food processor or mortar and pestle or a hammer.. whatever you need to do..
your ratio is this 2 parts vermiculite mixed with 1 part brown rice flower and add 1 part water.. mix very well...
fill a half pint wide mouth jar 3/4 with the mix.. the short ones work but the tall ones work too..
fill as many jars as you can.. if you dont have a pressure cooker the contain rate is bouncy so you want back up.. THEY WILL NOT ALL FAIL I promise you.
boil your water... use strips of heavy duty (this is key.. gotta get the thick stuff) foil and use them to cover the top of the jar.. (forgot to tell you, for cakes you won't need the jar lids) ya know, make a square big enough to crinkle around the jar top to seal it..
slow low boil for 60 minutes..
let cool completely..
make your syringe
im not as sterile as you would think someone who grows fungus would be but info very well soooo...
boil a cup of water.. as it boils draw the water into the syringe... expel water into the sink... donthos 3 or 4 times.. the last time, you leave the water in to cool.. once it's cooled, get a shot glass.. open your print and use the needle to scrape 1/4 or a little more into the empty shot glass.. (more spores i.e. darker syringes are in NO way better than a syringe you can barely see spore in, sometimes its more reason to contam) push a couple cc's of water into the glass and stir with the needle then suck it back into the syringe..
flame your needle to red.. use an alcohol soaked paper towel to fold over the needle to cool it and stick it into the middle of the foil.. NOT into the cake.. above it..
push out about 0.25cc at the side of the glass
(+) aim for the points of the cross..
4 spots at .25cc per spot for 1cc per jar.. then cover the jar with another piece of foil like the first
repeat the flame it, cool it quick then innoculate and cover til you are done.. in 5 to 7 days you should start seeing growth.. as racist as it sounds folks this rule:
"If it ain't white, it ain't right!!
whispy mycelium can look grey at the start because of its density while growing but it it doesn't brighten up or its green or brownish or red....Chuck it in the fuck it bucket.. either throw it completely away (Don't open it) or boil it for 30 minutes then open it dump it and wash it immediately.. one bad contam exposed to your grow space can kill every grow you will ever do again.. I killed my first house.. free well 3 runs then a bad contam I thought I could get through if I could slow it down while fruiting.. i never had a mushroom grow there again without contam..
there you have it.. Toastyjake's KISS method of pf tek cakes for p. cubensis
