substrate depth?
    #1375395 - 03/14/03 09:45 AM (14 years, 16 days ago)

Should substrate layer be the same depth regardless of the type of substrate used?

Getting the depth of your substrate right isn't rocket science. Anywhere from 2-6 inches deep works fine. IME the deeper the substrate the bigger the shrooms.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

That's true to a point. Stamets says that the maximum substrate depth should be about 7 or 8 inches, if I remember correctly. I don't have the book with me at the moment.

Yea cuz of the heat factor. But I dont think it was even that deep. I thought it was around 6 in.

see: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Forum4&Number=1371013&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1 for pertinnet info, checked TMC and stamets hems and haws about the max depth and finally blabbers something about 6-8 inches. the reality is that it is contingent on the ambient temperature since the heat generated by the mycelium will be in addition to that. that is where his little inches:heat chart comes in handy.
