To make mushroom cultivation newbies a present for the New Year, I translated the PF- tek für Dummies that I had previously written in german, to english.
It is still work in progress, so expect to find a strange word or a phrase here and there.
You can access it under this address:

>hey whens the old site coming back up?
You mean the spores-selling-site?
Not planned for the near future. If at all.

I checked it out.
Why do you say it is an improved version?
The real PF TEK at the fanaticus site
is far more detailed and instructive.
You just simplified it. The real PF TEK
is for the dummies to instruct them
in every little bit of the way.
You just showed that the PF TEK rules.
Flaming the needle is a waste of time
unless you touch the needle or contaminate
it. TO do it just to do it is useless.
The PF dual chambered terrarium is far
superiour to your bucket and perlite.
But the PF magic formula is so effective
that even your set up can work. But the perlite
is a messy thing that is eliiminated with
a dual chambered terrarium that never
The shrooms look like the PF race.
Thanx for not crediting god for the TEK
(like the Shroom wizard "tek") and thanx
for the links.
No dissing intended. Thanx for the

Well, I belive that the PF tek is a way to go for averybody starting in mushroom cultivation. Still there are some thing that can be done better, like the subtrate mixing part.
I off course give you full credit for your tek, otherwise I wouldn´t put 2 links to your site and link you as a spore vendor.
>Why do you say it is an improved version?
I´m saying that it "includes a few modifications that are time tested, and are, as I think, superior to the original PF-tek"
>The real PF TEK at the fanaticus site
>is far more detailed and instructive.
Is it? I´m not sure. Many people can´t visualize many steps described only with words without pictures.
>You just simplified it.
Hmmm...I hope the steps are simpler to understand, yes. That was my goal.
> The real PF TEK
>is for the dummies to instruct them
>in every little bit of the way.
Why are there so may newbie questons in all of the forums if everything is so clear?
>You just showed that the PF TEK rules.
Sure, I never claimed your tek is bad.
>Flaming the needle is a waste of time
>unless you touch the needle or contaminate
>it. TO do it just to do it is useless.
When you buy the syringe, how can you be completely sure that the person who made it didn´t touch anything with the needle?
I know, the chances are slim, but why take the risk? Flaming the needle is not that hard to do.
>The PF dual chambered terrarium is far
>superiour to your bucket and perlite.
Can be, I never used it so I couldn´t tell.
But it´s nice to have a choice.
>The shrooms look like the PF race.
They are GT.
Again, my goal was to write a more visual approach to the PF-tek, not to make it look bad or to claim that it would be lousy.
Actually I´ll add one sentence to the Dummies tek...

I liked the 'Grain for Dummies', both sites give alot of info/ pics. One thing that fanaticus site doesnt have that www.fungifun.com/pf has is the 2nd language ;) correct me if im wrong.
Fanaticus you the man!

Ano - tanks for the reply. But you ask - "Why are there so may newbie questons in all of the forums if everything is so clear?"
That is a damned good question. The answer is very simple. A lot of newbies just don't read my book - THE PF TEK. If they would read my book and follow it to the letter, they will have no questions. And notice how all the "questions" are redundant.
And I will have to say one more thing - and that is that the only people that know how great the PF TEK is, are the experts that have done it all ways (like myself). Newbies can not know how great the PF TEK is because they have no other experience in comparison. Once they start that, they all come back to the PF TEK if they like shrooms.

i think the question about so many newbie questions is funny. when i learned the pf tek i had to experiment and figure out things on my own without any help from internet or computers or cultivators for that matter. i am kinda glad i learned on my own bc i have developed my own personal preferences to what works well and doesn't. so basically no one is really wrong here it is just a matter of what works for you.

people are always going to have questions,
sometimes it's just to reassure them that
they understood correctly.
pf should be flattered that so many find it
worthwhile to revisit his tek.
