By Robert McPherson

The unique consultant referred to as "PF-tek" is an invention from Robert McPherson, sometimes called Psylocybe Fanaticus (PF), a scientist in starting to be fungi and spore vendor. as a result of legislation within the united states which prohibited his actions, PF needed to face felony effects and had
to surrender promoting spores and becoming publications and he additionally needed to close down his net site.
This advisor is more-or-less the unique PF-tek from the PF website. It in basic terms differs from the unique one by way of extra fabric that may be present in the appendices.

The PF- TEK is essentially a brown rice process with a higher formulation by utilizing vermiculite as a base and including pulverised brown rice.

The secret's within the vermiculite. while mycelium is cultured in precisely grain, the mycelium becomes a mass with little air area. but if grown with vermiculite, the mycelial threads stretch throughout house. the key concerning the PF- TEK, is that it copies nature. rather than the standard cloning of mushroom tissue and growing to be mushrooms from that, a mass spore inoculation is hired on to the fruiting substrate. That way,
the genotype is still entire. Senescence (mutating and ceased fruiting) isn't any longer an issue. The spores insure a by no means finishing succession of fungus, with the entire strength of the spores reproductive skill intact.

At first, there are only a few, but since they seem to like sex a lot, they really colonize the cakes in a short time. Maybe, they can be killed with appropriate pesticides (not tried, yet), but I would be careful to not contact the cakes with the poison. 5 Contamination At last, I want to write something on this, not at least important, subject. While contamination is no problem generally (provided you meet the sterility conditions as they are mentioned in this guide), they can occur. It has to be mentioned, that I never had any serious contamination.

Figure 18: The race between two fungi As can be seen in the figure, the cubensis wins clearly. On other occasions, the cubensis is not the winner. I have this situation when the cake is exhausted and the cubensis is suffering severe undernourishment. This happens after several fruiting cycles, and shows black spots which are growing slowly. The odour of the cake changes then, and smells really bad. Time for a fresh cake! Bluish spots that show up typically after a growing cycle, is no contamination but dehumidification.
