Pink Oysters on dung/coir
    #11298115 - 10/22/09 10:07 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Has anyone tried oysters in a single tub with coir/hpoo?

i just spawned 4 quarts popcorn to a single tub using this. along with some supercake formula in it.

yes i have and you can expect several flushes from it too.

what procedure did you use to prep the dung and how did you put it together. layers or mix.

nah i just oven pasteurized. then spawned 4 quarts of popcorn spawn. mixed it in nice and fluffy. the mix was 50/50 coir/hpoo.

i have a tub with about 8 holes total and polyfil. pink oysters. was finding i had some major issues with air exchange even using tropicaire setup. so i will most likely leave the polyfil out of the holes once fruiting begins. and mist the sides of the tub.

i did some open air grocery bags with newspaper spawned with corn spawn. and i had decent results misting the sides of the bags. but found it to be too much work. and i can't automate anything.

but got a few good meals out of it...

Yes. Very successful I had an old dieing tree in the backyard and worked up some mycobags with coir/hpoo/straw mix. Colonized fully within two weeks. Dug a hollow at the base of the tree and pushed the spawn blocks into the cavity. 3 weeks later there were visible runners going up the trunk. 8 weeks later the tree was fruiting. It is now roughly 58 weeks later and the tree has fallen and is mostly consumed. It appears the stump is meeting the same fate which was the goal.

I'd like to see it too.

well the results weren't the best. but i timed it a bit late. should have opened the polyfil holes and started misting when the last picture was posted. instead waited a day or so and they started drying out a bit. had a decent size harvest enough for some munching. but hopefully 2nd flush will do better.

booooo to your pictures, I want to see the tree debian was talking about.

haha j/k nice job, always figured oysters would do good on coir but never tried them cause I like doing cardboard/paper. Coir has good moisture retention potential though, makes a good addition I think.

they did ok. i think i need to make the dung ratio higher. maybe throw in some recycled newspaper chunks in 2x2" pieces. yeah i want to see the tree as well lol...

think they didn't so much like the dung but id like to do a combination next round of cardboard chunks, newspaper chunks, coir, dung. probably keep it a 75%nutrient ratio.

I'd also up your air on those things...an occilating fan nearby or something. Outside that...looks like they got great RH & light. Just need lots more air.

its in a room with a ceiling fan. lid was left loose, all holes were left open and it was hand fanned 3 times daily. i think it dried out real early. shoulda began misting once pins formed. can't really get more air exchange than it did unless i pump fresh air directly into it or automate. which isn't an option right now.

i am new to pinks so take what i say with a grain of salt.

you got a good pin set but i think rh and fae need more attention. the shrooms should be way bigger.

i would not change anything on the substrata till you get the fruit conditions down better. i think your sub is fine as well as everything leading up to fruit conditions.

don't change but one factor at a time when you see the results of more fae then you will be adjusting the rh seems like it might be high too.

another tip is to try to automate what you can as it brings the scope of the fight down a little and makes things more manageable.

good luck and i like the color you got there.

yeah i can't automate. tried fanning mercifully and had the bin in a room with open air holes and a fan. might try a shotgun chamber next. but didn't want to screw up or drill anymore holes in these tubs. i have a few older ones i can drill to pieces. i tested my tropicaire setup with no good results. i even used a 6"long by 1" wide bubble stone hooked up to a 90 gallon air pump. still didn't give enough air exchange for both pinks and blues. did some open air experiments that worked out well. just messing around right now until i can get more space for automation.

Oysters need a lot of FAE, tubs are not exactly their friend.

yeah i realize. i was just too lazy to spawn bags or newspaper this last time. had a batch of dung mixed up and not enough cubie spawn. just kinda turned out the way it did. kinda just tossing out the spawn before it went bad...

did this last round open air in grocery bags off newspaper and about 1 quart spawn per bag. probably next time might triple the size of the bulk substrate. add some flax and some cardboard. not in the mood to deal with straw atm. just using the recycled trash from the weeks.

on this last batch. i was having the opposite issue. enough air exchange and not enough moisture. things dried out real easy. was hand misting but maybe opened the bags up too much the first few days.

the 2nd flush of this dung tub is doing better than the first. i left the lid open and holes out. i did not dunk just misted directly on the substrate and on the pins. i have been having to hose them down heavily about 3 times daily due to the fan in the room drying out the tub quickly.
