Small poo volume question.
    #1319705 - 02/19/03 03:46 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)



hey!

afoaf spawned 1 1/2 pint PR pf style cake into an ice cream bucket with pasturized horse poo at a ratio of 1:5. So far all is colonizing well.

Afoaf does not plan on casing this dung, is it ok to put it in a terrarium that is perlite-humidified at 100% RH? or should this be treated like any other casing (minus the casing) and placed at a RH of 85% - 93%?

considering the small size of the substrate I dont think it would make a difference for them to put it in a terrarium with cakes, im not sure though, just thought i would check.


thanks

What you have is called a Bulk substrate.
And yes it should be treated like a casing as far as humidity.
But...you should have the humidity high (95% +) til you get pins.
Then drop the humidity down after you get pins.

good luck!

Friend says thanks for the luck, he is definatley seeing it!! :laugh:

he also would like to know if the substrate itself would provide enough humidity (like a casing layer would),  to support further mushroom development (beyond that of pins), if it were say,  have another ice cream bucket inverted on top of it, (while being fanned and misted regularly), or would an alternative humidification source be better suited for the given scenario.

this is the only bulk substrate in progress right now, the first one ever actually!!and will be the only one for some time,  very small scale and low key, just a test run :laugh:

maybe a small pan of perlite in a separate rubbermaid container?  how powerfull is perlite? will smaller amounts of perlite have an effect on the ambient RH?

comments/ suggestions are welcomed and appreciated,

thanks again,
