Mycelium question
    #11166772 - 10/02/09 12:19 AM (8 years, 2 months ago)

If I were to use a grow box, and lets say horse poo as the substrate...


after I spawn it, can I keep the box sealed so it can retain 100% humidity? Or is that not good for growing mycelium unless it is ready to pin?

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

They need fresh air to pin and become healthy. well they dont absolutely nned it but you would get knarly thin mushrooms so lots of Fresh air is good as long as you keep the RH up.

fresh air after its done colonizing

SO...after is done colonizing I just open it up and fan it once?

Its a tub so its got poly fill on the sides...

I just want to retain humidity..

Is hpoo and verm mix enough without a casing layer for cubes?

I was also wondering if I can inoculate the hpoo sub with a spore syringe to get the mycelium growing since I cant make cakes...

Does it still work fine with a syringe instead of live mycelium?

You want to use colonized spawn when doing bulk. Spore syringes won't cut it.

This was unlike the story

we were swallowing panic

If it were possible, do you think anyone would screw around with jars? Seriously...

Spores won't germinate on most bulk subs, at least not well. The ones that do, you'll probably contam as the myc most likely won't be able to beat out the contams.

If you can't hack PF tek (for whatever reason), you probably shouldn't be growing fungi.

I find WBS just as easy as PF tek. That's assuming you have a PC

Not that you lied to me, but that I no longer believe you has shaken me.

If you have the capability of doing grain, you should have the capability of doing PF. Quite honestly, as long as you can follow directions and fog a mirror, you should be able to complete PF.

OP is either unable to meet those 2 criteria, or is missing some key ingredient. Either way, if you can't get the equipment for PF, you can't get it for grain.
