Growing P.Cubensis on cow dung.
    #1103587 - 12/02/02 12:24 PM (14 years, 12 days ago)

Hello. I'm lucky enough to live in an area where the mushrooms grow plentiful, but only in the right season.

I have gathered cow dung that I found P. Cubensis on and put it all into an styrofoam ice chest and watered it. I also threw about 20+ fresh caps ontop of the mix. It's been going about a week and a half now and I've got about 30 tiny mushrooms popping up and 4 pretty decent sized caps growing.

Can anyone give me tips on what I should do to this little op??? thx

"I also threw about 20+ fresh caps ontop of the mix"

Since it sounds like it's growing, just let nature do its thing. Keep us posted on your experiment!

Your 4 main criteria are:
Light-you need some
Temp-70-75F for fruiting
Humidity- 85%+
Air Exchange-more is better.

Just about any amount of any light will work.
Use an aquarium thermometer from wal-mar tor pet store.
Mist the sides and top when you fan.
Fan an mist 3-5 times a day.

When mushrooms grow they exclude c02 such as plants exclude oxygen. The mushrooms like the air we breathe amd like us dont like the c02. C02 is heavier than air so to get it out you need to fan it.

no... to fan you take a 10,000 rpm fan that is 6 feet in radius and turn it on high in front of the closed container.


lol, just kidding man. I'm in a good mood.

To fan, you lift the lid and fan the air inside the container with a piece of cardbord in your hand. Or check out the shroomgod cool mis thumidifier tek if you want it automated. You can also use a hairdryer to move the air, but openingthe container seems like a contam convention to me. Just my $.02

If you use a hair dryer put it on the cool setting if it has one. I dont trust blowing hot air on mushies.
