Sorry for the delay on this guys, I got distracted this weekend, and then when I got it all together the PS didn't work, so I've gotta get another. I think I have another one out in the shed, just gotta go dig it out....

Total cost was only about $65 for me, but I already had the fan and a power supply ( I hope ). If you have to purchase the fan, it will be in the neighborhood of around $125 - $175. Here is a link to the fan I'm using.

And there are some more suited for this application on this page. Can't purchase them here, and I'm honestly not sure of an inexpensive source for this type of fan.

Here is a link to the gallery with all of the pics, I'll organize them into a tek and update the first post once I get a good PS on it and can verify that everything is working properly. Enjoy!

      Is this a start?

      A tek is science, people before you have had great success with them. They show your the way to success with put mush failures. when you have the know how , you can try more... with more success.

      I'm sorry about that accidental quote, this website is still confusing. These are both separate teks people have sent me. And I said ports in the paragraph which was my slang for portabelas. Is there any chance they will grow? I just want to see a little bit of miselium to get me excited

      Yes, better than coffee in dixie cups....but why not just follow one of the teks on ology? It seems you are pretty motivated to get going, but you are more likely to have success the first time around if you follow the tek exactly.  And if you let us know what type of spores you're working with it will be easier to give you some guidance in the right direction.  We want you to be successful too!

      I did some research on begginer teks last night. I have one jar (on the left) with a mixture of brown rice, sawdust, and 1 cup of water. And on the right is cleaned birdseed with water. Bought a cheap PC at goodwill and used that on both to steam them out. Soaked store bought ports overnight and sucked some of the liquid into a sterile syringe and put it in both. I am expecting a contam in both, but I hope to be able to get some miselium growing and be able to transport... is that better than my coffee in a dixie cup scheme?
