    PF Tek Success!

    Hey Folks, I had an old post, "Rye Bags" that doesn't really apply here, but one of them did survive, had to be broken up, and re-colonized. In any case, I am trying my very best to be completely self-sufficient. By the way, I apologize for only meeting a few of you all in person at the conference. I had to travel around more and later than expected Here are some pics...

    Actually, that Rye spawn was from a bag, not a jar. I coarsely crumbled it into horse pasteurized horse manure, then into a little rubbermaid bin, with a layer of vermiculite on top. I am using 1/2 pint wide-mouth jars right now. What kind of jar is it that you were wondering about? I do have one quart jar, but I don't use it much for anything myco-related... Buster

    Rye Bag was stagnant, but after re-coloniizination, and a little warmth & humidity, in a terrarium - it's starting to get active...

    Rye Bags

    OK: This is my first post in over two years, well, outside of the Yahoo Group. Anyway, I just inoculated two bags I had sent to me about 5 months ago. I used 1/2 of a normal size syringe for each. Each bag was perfectly clean, as they had been nicely vacuum sealed. I just need someone with a lot of success to tell me EXACTLY where these should go to ensure that they are safe from mold/bacteria. Right now, they are sitting on a very, very clean counter-top in my kitchen with no food out, or anything. I was thinking of wrapping them in some foil, but they are the kind that poof up (see pic attached)...  PLEASE let me know if I should store these in a special place. Everything was as sterile as possible - face mask, alcohol, fire, double-sanitizing, etc. Send me a note :-) Thanks, -J  BTW, i know to use jars in the future - I just figured I wouldn't let these go to waste.

    Rye Bags

    Dammit! one of the bags had a little green spot... I put what clean mycelium I could in sterilized jars, and am going to keep at a low temp to prevent bacteria (I hope)... the other bag is just fine, it seems. I've bleached, and alcoholed, and lysoled a better box... praying for no more contams...

    Rye Bags

    I know - but nobody responds to my posts.. they are sitting still, in a sterile microwave, in a sterile cardboard box. I am not going to touch a thing for another week. No, I know not to break up a myc. network... I'll show you them - BIG, bright white colonies inches from reaching/networking w/ others... I just wanted to know if I should check in a week, or just let sit and sit. I have pasteurized horse manure for more food... i'm not really looking to fruit off of these bag-cakes, I was going to try and let them grow into the poo, and just be really sterile (glove box) when doing so...

    Rye Bags

    Checked again today, and things are looking BRIGHT white... Well, almost 1/2 of each bag is colonized. No signs of contams... I've been through two bottles of Lysol already. This is probably the "cleanest" I've ever done things, and I'm sure that's why I'm having success. ForeverProsper has advised (at least with jars) that once things are fully colonized, to let sit for 5 more days... That's my plan unless otherwise advised. -J

    Rye Bags

    I used 1/2 syringe for each and fortunately didn't over-hydrate, it would seem. I would just make sure your temp is right... 81º is what mine stay at now. I peeked again today, and things have clearly grown since last night. Time for me to be patient and let mother nature do her job...

    Rye Bags

    BIG healthy white strands across both bags... these guys are colonizing FAST. I really mixed them up thoroughly. Hooray! Back in the box for a week or so... SOOO happy to see myc. and no contams.... -J 8-)

    Rye Bags

    Good news today - I found a bunch of sterile syringes and two un-opened prints - Washington and Amozonian. I'm pretty sure (and tell me if I'm wrong, FP) that I can just go grab some brown rice at Jewel, grind it up to make my own flour (Whole Foods is kind of far) , pick up a dozen jars and start sterilizing some jars in a pressure cooker this afternoon. I have vermiculite, and everything else I need (per teks I've read on another forum)... The part that is going to be hard (for me) is making the spore syringes. I am afraid to open them up. Wish me luck, as I am trying, ultimately, to keep myself and others who need it well. Again, any and all advice is appreciated... -J 8-)

    DMT - no verapamil detox, etc.?

    I was just talking about this with my spouse. It's just an idea. If DMT is what our body uses to let us imagine things in waking life (close your eyes and imagine a yellow house - you are using DMT), shouldn't it be effective for most anyone? I understand that that the medications traditionally used for the treatment of severe headaches are "polycyclic" - meaning, their molecules very often have a cluster of rings (kind of like overlapping indole rings) - and this can inhibit busting therapy, just like some SSRIs, etc. Anyway, to put it simply, I'll just ask. If you can take meds and dream, why wouldn't you be able to take DMT and bust - even while detoxing, or even on meds? BTW, here is a link to a report I found from Erowid, that many of you may have already read, given its post date of 2007. I suppose just reading the very last paragraph alone would get straight to the point: http://www.erowid.org/experiences/exp.php?ID=44397 PLEASE share any experiences! -J 8-) Just a thought. -J 8-)

    Rye Bags

    Very carefully checked for contams, overhydration, etc. today - things look good. I'm just wondering if they should be standing like in the picture, or rolled up like they are now, in their box. I'm sure they are getting "some" air, but enough? I've had periods (years) of huge success with growing, and others without any... When I can finance it, I am going to make some more jars. My understanding is that they are optimal, especially for "dummies"... I should have just stayed with them, and will in the future. -J 8-)

    Rye Bags

    They are now rolled up and in a sanitized cardboard box... wish me luck, guys! I'm broke, and this is what I have left I am marking the box with a pencil each morning. Today is day 6. I will continue to bless them every day, and hope for the best. The temp stays just about between 77 and 79º F... I mist around it with Lysol, 4-5x/day. -J 8-)

    DMT - no verapamil detox, etc.?

    I will be there for the first day and following morning only, looks like. I can't find any links about the above quote from me - I am looking online now... It was actually something that all started with a conversation with my psychiatrist. He happens to have been one of the administrators for "The Spirit Molecule". How likely is that? I will post a link and/or ask him if he can at least explain the idea again in more detail. I will ask him next Wednesday. He is a medical doctor, and seemed to be confident in what he was saying. -J

    Cluster Buster Conference roll call!!

    I'm sure I will be there, but it may only be possible for me to stay the first night. Can that be arranged?
