first popcorn grow, need advice
    #1293806 - 02/09/03 04:14 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Im gonna be growing creepers on popcorn here as soon as i get my syringes in, i have 3 one pint jars, (cant find jars here cause they out of season) and im gonna have mayonaise and jelly jars soon. does it matter how big the jar is, could i use one qaurt, or more? and can i case it with jiffy mix, they should call it shroom mix cause the ingredients is peat/fine horticulture grade vermiculite and lime as a ph buffer. heat is also a problem, cause i have to grow them in my room, wich is in the basement that is 55-60 f all day and all night, so i think i gotta heat my fruiting and incubating chambers. what kinda yeild do most people get from the average popcorn casing?

quart jars are proly the most efficient, that's how most do it at least.
jiffy mix makes a decent casing material.
60's is pretty cold, esp. during the critical germination phase. growth will be slow so adding some heat is wise.
yields are always highly variable, but here's a pic of a popcorn casing [verm.] fruiting to give you an idea.

Very Nice as always.  Has anyone who's used popcorn noticed a difference in potency?  Higher or lower rate of contams?

Thanks

hippie do you know the parameters of that popcorn casing, heat, humidity, fanning, etc., i like that flush and would like to try and produce one like that myself, and also how many flushes could i expect to get from a casing the same size as that one?

the cottonball is called polyfill, it's the polyester stuff that pillows are stuffed with. make a small (1/8") hole in the lid of your jar, and pull enough polyfill through it to make it nice and tight. this allows for a certain amount of air to circulate, while helping to avoid contamination. I would not suggest inoculating through the polyfill.

Of course, a better solution is the micron magick filter disks, which are cheap and more effective than polyfill. Do a search and you'll find these quite easily.
