Bulk preperation, straw and poo necessary??
    #11189476 - 10/05/09 09:25 PM (8 years, 9 months ago)

So I've been doing some research, and am a bit confused as to bulk preperation.

I understand bulk is where you essentially spawn a colonized jar into another medium mixture, at 1:2 1:3 1:4, and there is no layer on top needed. 

But, what is the rule on what the medium mixture can be?  Most crazy harvests I've seen comes from straw/poo, but I've also seen good ones from verm/coir.

Whats up? 

I'm just asking as pretty much what I see around here is coir everything, and I failed with my peat mix and am stuck to ordering coir off ebay.

you dont grow cubes with peat
its true coir is an alright substrate
but poo and straw are the closest to its natural substrate and work the best

Straight coco coir will grow mushrooms. It's just that cubes like a little variety in their diet. The more the bulk substrate gives them to eat, the happier they are.

The list of bulk substrate material that has been used is quite extensive. From acorns to yeast.

I think that this is why you don't see that many recipes on this site. I was confused before I read T.M.C, (The Mushroom Cultivator) By Stamets and Chilton.

It could also be that successful growers like to keep their "secret" recipes secret!

I wouldn't mind seeing a bulk recipe thread started. Tried to a week or so ago, it didn't receive much support.

Kay Sara Sara, and all that...:goodluck:

I think coir is popular cuz people are funny bout playing with poop. Also coir is pretty resistant to contamn sterilized or pasteurized, whereas with straw/poo you really want to watch your pasteurization temps.

Lot of it just has to do with what you can acquire easily.

Straw/poo
Verm/poo
Straw/ewc (earthworm castings)
verm/ewc
coir/verm

Coffee/gypsum as additives to any of the above.

Thats the gist of every bulk recipe I've seen.
