chex mix as substrate
    #1365779 - 03/11/03 11:40 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

my pet gorilla has suddenly gotten an interest in growing mushrooms, and he was laying on the couch reading the back of a chex mix bag, and noticed that the round brown things that looked like burn bagel chips were called rye chips (he always wondered what they were called). so anywho, spanky (the gorilla) informs me that he has been surfing this wonderful site for a few months and has noticed that rye and wheat/grain are good for substrate. he would like to know if anyone had tried this before and with any success? also, would the spankster have to add vermiculite to the substrate formula? would he have to grind the chex up in a blender first (I'm not sure if it would work that well then, because I don't think it would be very airy; leaving it be would be nice and airy, but, would the shroomies be able to feed of it then?)? the spankmeister is very interested in this. spanky read the one article on here about using chex, but it was very short and not very detailed.

by the way, this is the "Chex Mix Brand Snack Traditional" with 60% less fat. all of the fun, flavorful shapes in it are: corn chex, rye chips (yummy :grin), bagel chips, windowpane pretzels, bread twists, wheat chex, and round pretzels.

I think the regular Chex cereal (not the party mix) would be more on par with a good grain flour. The oil and salt might cause problems. It is definitely worth a shot with the pftek if you would be willing.

I agree with flatal, the salt would present a problem. B+ will grow on grapenuts (the cereal) just use it as you would BRF in the PF tek.

Try regular wheat chex! They are an excellent nutritional source. You could nitrogen supplement it with dogfood. Dogfood is an excellent protein source and would really go the extra mile with some Spawn Mate, which converts the protein to mushy nutes.

You have to use organic chex otherwise the preservatives will prevent growth.
A friend of a friend tried chex as a substrate but had low quality results. I would suggest using something else for a substrate :grin:
