My mistake...will it still work out? (popcorn on coir w/coffee) **PICTURE UPDATE**
    #11308327 - 10/23/09 09:39 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

OK, so i was mixing a brick of coir with a gallon of water, following a tek a read, over 170 degrees of heat. Then i started to mix the 4 cups of vermiculite (only i used fine vermiculite, not the coarse kind) and 4 cups of spent coffee grounds together. Before i knew it, the coir expanded to the size of my pot...and then i realized that that was the biggest pot i had....so i heated it up a little to sterilize what was in there...and then decided to just dump it all into a giant (clean) bin that i had...so i had room to mix it all up together...Then i put on some latex gloves, and mixed in the coffee grounds and vermiculite all together in the bin...and let it cool down. then i figured, its pretty much close enough to what I'm going to be doing..all i need to do it add the popcorn...so i poured in 11 or so colonized pint jars of pop corn in the mix, and once again..mixed it all up evenly. I know that's not the correct way to do it...but will that still work? or will i just have a huge contaminated/failure?

any suggestions? or should i just see if that huge 2 inch or so layer will colonize, and then i could grow straight out of the bin? I'm kinda just experimenting with the whole thing... Kinda curious if anyone ahs ever done this before? or yeah...

any comments would be helpful. Thanks :laugh:

yeah, but i thought to grow i would need to and colonize again i would need to put it in different trays...so i can put it in with perlite to keep up the humidity...like right now, its literally just in a bin...that's in...no air holes or anything. no light either. should i fan it out daily while i wait for it to colonize? or even mist it at all?

I love popcorn...
One of the things I love about coir/verm... It is very hard to contaminate. I've had success not even "pasturizing" it... I just let it expand over the stove for 30 mins. then cool... then use.

Never had a prob! :smile:
