Fruiting in a burlap sack?
    #15236900 - 10/17/11 03:45 AM (3 years, 7 days ago)

Would mixing coir and spawn together in a burlap sack, then fruiting, work good? I imagine the myc would just grow through / eat the burlap.

Advantages I can see:

- Nothing to wash
- Allows pinning on all sides

Possible Disadvantages:

- Might break apart near the end (messier to get rid of)
- $3 a piece
- breaths
- Shouldn't promote contams, should it?
- Might screw up fruiting if mushrooms try to pin under the burlap, rather than through it

What do you guys think? Only things I can really see going wrong is either bacteria growing between the coir and the burlap, or the mushroom forming under the burlap.

Welcome to the world of experimental teks. None of us have ever tried so no one knows.  Get ready for a bunch of people saying its stupid and wont work, but don't worry they haven't tried either.  I say try it and let us know.

Paul Stamets calls it "Bunker Spawn". Might check out what he has to say about it in "Mycelium Running".

Salvia is like that malicious carnival ride operator, the one that sees you getting sick and not having a good time. But the ride you paid for is 5 minutes long...and you WILL get all 5 minutes.

Even the bad trips, are positive when taken in the proper perspective.

Nope. He stacks it like sand bags. Uses it primarily in Mycorestoration/Mycofiltration. "Mycelium Running" is a really interesting read, I recommend it to everyone interested in Mycology.

Though I have seen pictures of fruits coming from bags like this. I just read a post today that had pics of this going on. Ill be damned if I can find it now though.
