azure idea
    #1454843 - 04/13/03 05:10 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

well i might not be the first to think of this, but i never saw it mentioned here.

i was wondering if it would be possible to fill a big flower pot with wood chips, colonized azure wood chips, and cover it with potting soil/leaves/grass seed.

i want to do this because:

- not much space in garden (i'd have to kill some other plants to make room)
- i have 2 cats who dig up the whole yard just to take a shit wherever they can.
- to prevent slugs and other nasty critters from reaching the mycellium

advantages: pot can moved out of the sun, to a dryer or wetter area, and can be taken inside the house if temperatures drop too much.

i know that this way the flushes wont be big, because mycellium expands rapidly and needs to grow. so in a way it will become a big woodchip cake with a casing layer, but, of course i could always dump this cake in the garden if it doesnt work out.

what do you guys think? could it work? how should i do it?
should i sterilize all woodchips? or only soak the part that will become colonized by the already colonized woodchips?

potting soil on the bottom? mixed through? etcetera..

thanks  :smile:
