How to grow a pound?
    #1143159 - 12/15/02 01:52 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

This is hypothetical, but What would the pro's out there do to harvest 1 pound of dried mushrooms in a basement suite...ie limited space. Straw...poo....automated set up. Ideas anyone?

These types of questions are usually locked quite fast. If you need a pound dry....something doesn't smell right.

Here's what you need,
1 birdseed
2 compost
3 A good Lawyer
4 A big jar of ass lube

(substitute 4 for 3 if 3 is not available.) :grin:

You should probably practice having sex with large vegetables so you won't get torn open.

My best freinds brother's freind can harvest a pound in 3 months. He uses agar, large casing trays, and bulk grain. He has a walk in closet designed to grow mushies. He runs 2 coolmists. He uses the hawiian strain. Thats all I know

I don't think you going to get an answer because whatever you doing sounds really shady. What you could do is research what yields you can get from different substrates, then divide pounds with the yield you find. Voila, you have your answer.

I think a better question would be "How do you load a gun, put it in your mouth, cock it and pull the trigger"

I dont need a pound. I was more hoping to hear the benefits over dung vs straw........or birdseed over verm, etc. Everyones got something different to contribute about bulk substrates, and for someone with no experience it doesnt add up. I hear totally conflicting opinions sometimes, and was wondering what you all thought would be the best method. Friends grow for profit, My goldfish grows for himself. She's got a fair bit of space, and will be experimenting with many different casing, and bulk teks over the next few months. No need to make assumptions. Perserving for the future you know?

Like I said above, birdseed to compost.    Easy as pie, once you get it down. :wink:

For the birdseed

WBS Tek (Wild Bird Seed) Bulk Spawn Preparation Method.

WBS consists primarily of white millet. It is often a combination of white, red millet & milo, with a small percentage of sunflower seeds and sometimes tiny amounts of crushed corn. Some expensive brands are coated with a fungicide. For use as spawn material, treated WBS is not advisable.

You can find untreated WBS in 5 -10 & 20 pound bags, at low prices at most large chain grocery stores, or chain type pet supply stores. For instance, PetsMart has 40 pound bags for around $9.

Simply place whatever quantity you intend to use in a plastic pot, tub or bucket. Bear in mind, dry seed will expand about 20 to 25% - after it absorbs its capacity of water. Add tap water & soak the seed overnight. A 8 to 12 hour soak is fine. Seed soaked longer will begin to ferment. But, is still usable after soaking 24 to 36 hours.

There is no need to remove any floating husks, or sunflower seeds. These add lignin (a good thing) & do not harbor any more possible contams than does the millet. It is all going to get thoroughly sterilized - anyway.

Once soaked, simply rinse the seed very thoroughly in a colander, or strainer. Then allow it to drain - WELL. As in 30 or more minutes. If it is drips - one drop. It is not drained - WELL.

Load pint or quart jars ? full, apply internal filter disk, material, polyfil or whatever method you use allow gas exchange through a ? or 3/8 inch hole in the lid. Screw lid on tight & back it off ? turn. Place a double layer of paper coffee filters over the lid & jar top, held down by a thick rubber band. Place the jars in the PC.

PC at 15 pounds for a full 60 minutes. 90 minutes is better, if you have the time. Allow the PC pressure to drop to zero & let it cool a bit. Open while still hot & remove jars. The paper coffee filters will dry almost instantly, when the PC is opened. Tighten lids (if necessary), shake jars to insure there are no clumps of seed inside. Place jars inside the oven on a rack, to cool, overnight. External coffee filters simply add another layer of protection to the jars content.

Once cooled to room temperature, store in a clean cardboard box - until used. Using them sooner than later is preferable. Note: This method was done in an All American PC. Some brands with a weighted pressure system require more internal water & it may be advisable to also cover the coffee filters with tin foil while PC'ing, so no excess boiling water gains entry into the jars. Simply remove the tinfoil when you remove the jars from the PC.

And for the poo
http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Growlog&Number=723303&page=&view=&sb=&o=&fpart=1&vc=1

I don't think that growing that much is a great Idea, and neither do I think that posting about it is a good Idea, but hey, whatever.
