Pf Tek | Easy BRF Cakes Mushroom Growing Method


Recommended Posts

mescawin

So I noticed that you have no holes in the bottom of your sgfc. The only tek to build one on here that I've seen, he made holes on every side, including the bottom and the lowest inches where perlite should go.

Has anyone noticed a difference? Will a fully holed sgfc work better than one with no bottom holes? Might it be better to reduce the drill bit size from 1/4th to 1/8th for only the bottom and perlite level sides?

Hello everyone. Here's a PF tek method I used a few times before I found MZs dub tubs. It worked well but it's not the easiest way to grow mushrooms. However, it did come in handy for me when I

Thank you @mushmouth for this great tek. 4+ years after shroomology's first appearance online it receives its first pf tek

Nice read with some coffee!  Sweet write up

I put holes around my entire tub and I believe it's the reason my shrooms were so small. Too much FAE! Once I blocked the holes with tape after my second flush my mushrooms were much bigger in size, but I have heard 2nd flush yields larger mushrooms:thinking:

Hmmmmm... what about quart jars with a grain lid? I could leave out the verm layer..I did get two free pounds of BRF from shroom supply.... I'm intrigued. What do you think MM? Do I need another project?

Love it. That would almost be as awesome as someone trying to grow APE on cakes ;)

I was thinking this texas lc is such an aggressive fruiter, might be a good candidate. I pitched my tubs today, and there was a ton of mush on the bottoms, it was practically a whole flush on its own..nootz.

who in their right mind would try and grow APE on cakes?? ;)

 

what about sawdust and brf? woodlover pf? there's a fucking challenge!

Make a video of you birthing quart size cakes out of a wide mouth jar. That would be priceless:P

How much would all this cost?

And how many grams does this method produce per harvest?

That is a number that is hard to give you every thing is different in ever grow but I do know of a guy on here who pulled over an ounce from 4. 1\2 pint brf cakes

Would love to see a video of that as well. Last birthing of 1/2 pint jars left my hands sore and blood red 

Did you let them consolidate for 7 to 10 days after 100% colonization?

Yes I did. I really don't pay attention to the days though honestly. They get birthed when there's a large number of pins. Like in this pic

Seems though the more pins the tighter it gets against the glass lol

Won't they pin more evenly in a sgfc or similar? On a similar note, what real problems are there with invitro?

Why do you let them pin in the jar that much?

I was actually under the impression that I should let them pin that long in jar. It's also hard to keep track of. When they start to pin and are just tiny pins, to those nice sized pins is usually less than 24 hours. 

But it does seem to flush faster and larger mush when I do it this way vs when I see tiny pins.

Do you take the pins off then dunk n roll?

No i don remove pins. I don't roll. I hold in my and use a spoon to evenly harvest. Coincidentally I just picked the cake that's in the pic. This is a pic of just a few off it. The 1s that were big pins inside. Newport 100s box for reference

      A big gap.  It was a story about ayahuasca and antibiotics that got me wondering about mixing the two being a bad idea.   Thank you for the input.

      Intriguing and harrowing case report of someone who injected themselves with mushroom (P. cubensis) tea...spores included. He nearly killed himself doing this, and was on ICU life support for multiple-system organ failure for some time. He had bipolar disorder type I and had been researching ways to treat his opioid dependence and depression, and was intrigued to give psychedelics a try. One very weird take away from this: "...the species of mushroom he had injected was now growing in his blood". Not only did the mushroom spores survive boiling, but they germinated and started growing in his bloodstream according to this. Curious about the wider evolutionary implications of this pertaining to the mushroom...given how tough and resilient mushroom spores appear to be, it calls into question the hypothesis put forward that psilocybin acts as a repellent...perhaps it more likely acts as an attractant. Makes me curious about the association of P. cubensis with bovine dung, perhaps bovines are ingesting spores and helping distribute them...I wouldn't put it past those crafty fungi. https://www.vice.com/en/article/v7mp74/man-injects-magic-mushrooms-they-grow-in-his-blood Study: Giancola et al.

      Thanks guys. I inoculated the LC via an agar wedge. Although the mycelium in the LC looked a bit lackluster, it does seem to be colonsing jars of rice/dung without issue. Time and heat definitely isn't an issue, the room the LC and grain jars are being stored in is nice and warm, and initial growth was rapid. Thank you for the recipe switch recommendation...I will definitely try this if I have issues.
