Download PF- TEK - Psilocybe Cubensis growing techniques by Robert McPherson PDF

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 becoming fungi and spore vendor. because of legislation within the united states which prohibited his actions, PF needed to face felony outcomes and had
to hand over promoting spores and transforming into courses and he additionally needed to close down his net site.
This advisor is more-or-less the unique PF-tek from the PF site. It purely differs from the unique one by way of extra fabric that may be present in the appendices.

The PF- TEK is largely a brown rice procedure with a stronger formulation by utilizing vermiculite as a base and including pulverised brown rice.

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