Honey in BRF/vermiculite substrate
    #1245423 - 01/24/03 09:32 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

A friend told me awhile back that adding a teaspoon of honey to the PF tek substrate considerably helps fruiting. Any thoughts on that?

it might increase the nutrients which can't be a bad thing. another good additive i heard is leeched compost/dung water.

It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

My only question would be:

How would a person add the honey?? It would fucking stick to everything and you would just have a big size ball of sticky ass brf and verm. I would think a person would have to dissolve the honey into the water added to the mix prior to actually mixing everything. If that makes any sence at all.

You would dissolve it into the water.

I tried that on 12 1/2 pinters and the jars had a upside down peak the color of honey inside them. They never would colonize enuff so i finially chunked em. :confused:

i think you need to focus on experimenting with variable concentrations of the honey. don't forget to account for the extra water inherent in the honey that you are adding. let's say you make 12 jars. i'd recommend 1 normal non-honey jar for control and then say 2X1gram, 2X1.5gram, 2X2gram, 2X3gram, and 3X4gram honey inoculated jars. this way you could track which concentrations seem better for overall colonization speed and quality as well "overdoses" that will cause stunted growth or contamination. Personally, I achieve a "burst" effect by inoculting everything I do with pre-germinated mycelium honey water. This not only foregoes the germinating within the jar but has to provide some nutritional additive (albeit probably short term). The result is rapidly colonizing grains and cakes.
