Improved substrate : Popcorn mixed with Whole Brown Rice.
    #1918024 - 09/15/03 02:13 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Hey,

I like doing popcorn casings.  They are fast and yields are acceptable.  On the other hand, I suspect popcorn grown shrooms to be less potent than BRF grown shrooms.

I was thinking of using a mix of popcorn and Whole Brown Rice as a substrate (let say 2/3 popcorn and 1/3 Brown Rice).  This substrate should still promote fast colonization time with possibly the advantage of using the extra nutrients of the Brown Rice.

I'm ready to try it but I was wondering how I should prepare my substrate.  Should I soak the Rice in water for 24 hours, just like the popcorn? Or it's ok to simply add dry Rice in the jars and then PC em..

  Any other suggestion?

thanks !  :eyemouth:

1/3 BRF? That's quite a bit. That's the same volume as in a pf cake, but there it's the sole source of nutrition. Your hypothesis about potency is also apocryphal to me, but give it a shot:

Rice puffs up quite a bit when wet, absorbing a couple times its original volume if soaked, and that's probably how you'd want to do it. I say soak the popcorn and rice together.

Good luck!

i would try whole brown rice mixed with vermiculite and popcorn. or BRF+verm but dont try and put BRF with kernels by themselves, it will get gooey and messy. use verm :smile:

what makes you suspect a decrease in potency?

Thanks for your advice Beppo.  I'll try both.

1- Whole brown rice + popcorn
2- Whole brown rice + verm + popcorn.

My suspicions on a decrease in potency are not very solid yet. I only know that I went very high a couple of times with BRF grown Tapalpas (3g) but had very subtile effects with popcorn grown Equadors with 2g (tried it a couple of times. Never did 3g with these ones).

I know it proves nothing.  Could be the dose, the strain or the substrate.  EQs are known to be quite potent.  Based on the subtile effects of a 2g dose, I highly doubt it will get much more intense at 3g.  Still have to try it.

  So in the meantime, I wanna try a popcorn - whole brown rice substrate. 

That's about it :laugh:
