Is it a pint jar or 1/2 pint? Do you plan on doing cakes, casing, or spawn? If you have one cake and you do a poo spawn you should have plenty to trip multiple times, If you do a cake, well you may get enough for 2 trips if you are lucky.

To find a good poo tek, do a search for roadkill's horse poo tek.
You will get the least from just a cake alone, you will get a bit more from a verm casing, and you will get the most from a poo spawn. I can't tell you how much you will get because yield is highly dependent upon your particular growing conditions. If you have access to horse poo, I'd say do the poo spawn.

What do you think may have gone wrong and led to contamination? Any casing method will produce more than you'll get off of the one cake as is, provided it doesn't contaminate too. So many went south..did you keep things clean when innoculating?

Its not all that hard to find horse poo, all you have to do is take a nice little drive out into the country until you see horses, go up to the house that is attached to the pasture and politely ask the farmer if he'd mind if you took some of his shit to use for fertilizer for roses that you want to grow for your sweet mother. Store bought manure is rarely as good as the real thing, but it will do. The best of the store bought manure that I have heard of is Scotts 3n1, but Scotts stopped manufacturing it, so get out to home depot and see if they still have any stocked. If you can't get horse poo or 3n1, I'd say do a verm casing or 50/50 + casing. Here's a link to the tek

Well, in the future, you may want to look into it. One trip and enough rubbermaids can give you enough poo to last a year, and if you are worried about yields, you can't beat poo. But the casings will do for now.

Lots of questions, just one answer, the faq's. But what the hay, I'll give it my best shot to give you some answers.
1) I have both sterilized and pasteurized 50/50+ casing mix, although I've heard it is more beneficial to pasteurize because it leaves the helpful microbes. To pasteurize, put your casing mix in a pillow case, put the pillow case in a pot (with something in between the pillow case and the bottom of the pot like a dish towel, so you don't burn a hole in the pillow case) and fill the pot up with water. Put the pot on a burner and turn on the heat until the water is @ 160 degrees (you will need a candy thermometer to tell the temp, get it at walmart, they're cheap like $4), once the temp is up to 160 maintain it for an hour, after the hour is up, take the pillow case out and let it dry in a sink or tub or where ever for 24 hours. Then its ready to use.

2) the terrarium doesn't need to be dark, the incubation chamber does. Heres some good chambers.
http://www.myco-tek.com/TEKs/Incubation.htm http://www.fungifun.org/pf/incubator.htm

3) Humidity should be from 90-95 for prepinning and then dropped down to 85-92 for fruiting, but its not all that necessary as the casing itself will provide moisture.

Hope this helped

you want to use that jar to spawn more jars, use only the top 1/8th of the cake, chop it into 5-6 pieces, (the top 1/8th ring piece) and use the oven tek to spawn more jars.

it works. and you will still have a bit of a cake to fruit off in the meantime.
