new casting mix and retarded/slow myc growth
    #11335101 - 10/27/09 11:52 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Hey my "friend" is having some trouble with his PE myc growth and he was wondering if it might be due to his new casting mix...

Here's "his" mix:
40% Hpoo
25%verm
15%cowpoo
10%used coffee grounds
10% worm farm soil/poo

These %s might not be exact but very close.

I didn't check the ph and figure it might be due to that, but I wanted to mostly know what people thought of the mix. 

Is it a good mix or should I change it up?

Thanx so much everyone!

:pm: me if you have questions about lasers

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.

Ahhh.... that does make sense.  When "he" was mixing it i"he" figured that the Hpoo would give the myc enough breathing room, but now at a second glance it does seem a little dense. I'm going to also pick up a ph meter today for use in the future though.

My "friend" is having very good luck with his cambodians and PE using the pf teck, but casting is causing a little frustration due to the slow myc growth and losing two already due to contamination : ( damn cow web!  Tryed using hydrogen peroxide but since I was gone for 3 day by the time I found it it was too late....

Also my friend seems to be having very good luck with adding a small amount of ionized minerals to his dunking process and into his mister bottle.

Does any one else think this is a good idea?      Thanx again!!!
do you think adding ionized minerals to the dunking/misting process is beneficial?
You may choose 2
yes, I think it is.
no, don't waste your time.

I think you are confused with your terminology...

this would be a bulk substrate mix.

not a casing mix.

Opps my bad. lol

Ok well I spawned my  myc in a jar of organic rye berry/quinoa and add a alittle bit of old coffee to the water.  (Would this be the casting then?)

Then after rapid full colonization I moved on to the (bulk substrate) which consisted of:

Hpoo
Verm
Cow poo
Worm farm soil/poo
Used coffee grounds



Sorry about the terminology mistakes guys.  (God I look like a newb...lol)

As for the ionized minerals...  it had one of my 1/2 pint Cambodian cakes with a first flush of only two but very beautiful mushies (W/O Ionized minerals). Its now beginning its second flush(w/ I.M.) and had 8 mushies but i had to remove two aborts this morning. So I still have 5.  The first flush of 2 may have been due to a lower moisture level, but both were kept as close to 99% H as possible though. 

Conclusion: I believe that I need to continue my research... but so far I am experiencing positive results.  Hopefully someone else will try repeating this experiment for themselves to help confirm my findings.  But I believe it is important to state that I used a 99% salt free liquid form of ionized minerals, and that it may be easy to add too much, which may result in negative results.
