The video I suggested above is a full three hour instructional, everything in order and extremely detailed, I would watch it regardless of the Tek you choose to start with. There's alot of good info on here but I haven't seen anything on any forum anywhere that is as informative as this one video. And it's all together in one spot.

I agree with Queen that seeking information from all sources is a great idea for people who already have the ability to recognize the quality of the information. For beginners it is more practical to stick to a single source of info like Ology until they see the bigger picture, the key to this site is to help people "get it" as fast and efficiently as possible

Welcome to Ology Terro, the dub tub is the way to go. It's a sick ass tek

 

 

Thanks again guys.. I'm not going anywhere. I just might have found a home..lol

Quick question. . I was doing some spring cleaning last year. And when I pulled my bed away from the wall, I noticed what looked to be mold on the wall. Not allot but there were a few spots. Do I need to sterilize the entire room?

I would clean that with a bleach solution for sure, more so for the sake of your health than your mushroom grow. Wear a respirator too. When it comes to growing, the Self Healing Injection Port (SHIP) lids mostly eliminate risk of airborne contamination. You could inoculate ship lid jars in a filthy outhouse as long as you flame your needle and wipe your injection port with 70% alcohol

That's some really good info!! That mold is long since gone, and I've since pulled the bed away from the wall a bit to get some airflow back there. .

Are those ship lids you speak of made or bought?

Most everything here is home made. Sorry, some of the links in the Teks don't work. If you can't find a link you need just ask on this thread.

Thanks again guys.. I'm taking it all in slowely.. doing allot of research and all. Going to build a glove box that I saw on YouTube seems easy enough. Am also looking into a d I y incubater like queen Isabela uses, or maybe do the fishtank heater in the Mason jar tek and put that in cabinet over the refrigerator. .not exactly sure though how fruiting process works entirely, but I'm working that out.. is natural light coming into a room from the windows enough light? And how much light is needed? Does the light requirements different from tek to tek?

Since you're gonna build a glove box soon, you may consider a still air box (SAB) instead.  When you get to the point of needing to flame sterilize needles or other tools (you'll probably get to that point sooner than you think!) it will be easier to do so with the still air box.  I keep my alcohol burner just outside the SAB, it is easy access. Also, it is the still air inside the box that helps keep the contamination down. When ready to work, spray the inside with soapy water, particles that move in the air should stick to the sides/top/bottom rather than bounce off and move around the air.

      Great read Samwise, thanks for sharing that. I'd like to try a blind study with the intent to explore these concepts a bit further. If one brewed a few different teas using say 2.5g cubensis, 1g mexicana, 1g Psilocybe cyanescens, 1g Panaeolus cyanescens and chose one at random and reported on the effects, this might be a fairly simple way to eliminate bias of any sort. While I have experimented quite a bit with cubensis and Ps. cyans in many different doses and contexts (mexicana less so, four times total) and developed pretty firm beliefs about the effects of each, I still can't be 100% sure that I'm not demonstrating bias. The differences do seem quite stark though I must say. I remember a bit from one of Terence's talks where he explores the idea of the content of psychedelic experiences and how they might be transformed or populated by the sum total of all of the previous trips taken. At the time, ketamine had recently arrived on the scene and he spoke about how the ketamine trip was often reported to be very "empty". This was, in his opinion, because very few people had experienced it, unlike the classic psychedelics which were packed with innumerable previous trips and revelations. I think his angle of approach to the subject was a little bit "woo woo" (to borrow his own lingo), because what he failed to mention was that ketamine had not yet been tamed by language. Since few people had described it, the experience lacked preconceived biases and therefore may have appeared to be empty. There was no roadmap to ketamine. I think this is what Rupert Sheldrake meant by "morphic resonance". Language, much like genes, has the uncanny ability to proliferate its agenda like an organism. I for one am pretty skeptical about the idea of fairies/elves/entities or voices in trips, and have avoided interpreting my experiences as an encounter with an "other", but rather an encounter with self (or One), which I believe people are too often eager to confuse with "other". Just my opinion.

      I would suggest getting yourself a large tub of which can accomadate your smaller tubs. Cut 4 2" holes with one on each side of the tub cover with tyvec seal around edges with tape. Make sure they are about 3" up from the bottom just in case you want to use the big tub for sub some day .Place your smaller tubs inside and mist the sides of the large tub to get that humidity level up. Good luck and don't panic.

      Hello  keep on keeping on eventually it will work! from what I can see in the tubs they look a little on the dry side so I would try and boost the humidity. you would be surprised at what types of conditions mushrooms will grow. Way back in the day when I was going full tilt I did not use casing in my first endeavours and still made some pretty good flushes. The mean green happens sometimes however you should be making sure you are using sterile technique to a T. Make sure your grain spawn is always 100% colonized plus a week before spawning. Also are you pasturizing your bulk sub or sterilizing it? If your temps get too high during pasteurization it kills most of everything living in the substrate. This is not a good thing as you want to keep some of the beneficial microorganisms to fight off the bad aka mean green and other contaminants. For any bulk sub preparation it's recommended to pasteurize not sterilize. If you sterilize then the spawn must be spawned in a sterile environment to keep contaminants out then you gotta pray the spawn takes hold before any tams do. For this reason I only pasteurize. For now I would keep on caring for the tubs as you should with misting and fanning try to bump that moisture up a bit. You want to see some moisture condensing on the sides of the tub not so it's running and flooding the sub just so there are droplets of water on the sides.   I hope this helps in some way like I said keep on keeping on eventually you will be able to produce mushrooms in your sleep.  This tub here was never cased
