  1. Generally, when I do a pf-tek grow, I place a rack about 1 cm above the perlite. I then place my cakes on this rack. But what if I were to raise them up further? Something close to 10 cm. Do you think it would have any observable effect? If so, good or bad? My hypothesis is that the only effect would be that mushrooms would grow more freely from the bottom, but that would be about it. Perhaps you might get smaller mushrooms overall as the cakes have another surface they can grow off of.
  2. Good days fellows. I have few questions if you don't mind. I an quite new in this world. I recently ordered some spores. I will receive some spore prints. Golden Teacher and blue meanie ( cubensis strain ) Where I live is little bit strange. I am struggling to get what i need. I couldn't get 15 psi PC ( there are some but quite expensive) and brown rice.. I have been checking online and stores. I gave up. Currently I have organic rye flour and 10 psi PC. I have to deal whit them. About rice: There are few other type of Rice i can get. Red and Black. I have no idea about them. Can I use them or Must i go for rye flour ? My other question is about 10 psi PC. I have to deal with it. I think i must keep jars in it longer than 90 min or more. What is your suggestion. How much vermiculite + water + rye flour must i mix if i need to keep it longer in 10 psi. It's going to be my first try and i really want to be successful ( of course all of us ) I though i might do some test before inject spores in to the jars. I was planning to mix flour, vermiculite and water then leave it somewhere for 2 to 3 weeks to observe if any contamination. Do you think It will work to understand my sterilization was ok ? I think I have to wait 3 to 4 weeks get my spore prints. I think I have enough time for this test. I am planning to build some little green house for my work. I have to deal with sterilization, most of my place in my house are not really suitable because rooms are big. I am thinking h2o2 mix with water can help me for create some little sterile area. If i spray H2O2 in this little green house, do you think it can help me to clean air in the green house ? Problem of this type of works, ( specially if you are newbie ) you read a lot, watch lots of video and you get so much different opinion. It creates confusion. Lots of different opinion is good but, seriously sometimes it doesn't really helpful too. If you don't mind, Will you share your experience with me.. Thanks a lot..
