would this ever work?
    #1545360 - 05/13/03 04:03 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

hey guys i live in delaware, ive got a pretty nomral north eastern climate. ive got a WICKED compost pile in my back yard and a whole bunch of other organic stuff like that on my property (rotting logs, grass, manure). i see shrooms growing all over my property, how can i get psilocybe shrroms to grow there? i did some research and found that the Panaeolus subbalteatus strain would be great for around here, although i am not sold on that strain. is there anyway to easily get them to grow (without using cakes) i was thinking about just shopoting some spores into the compost heap, would anything like this work? any advice would be greatly apreciated

Shooting spores into a compost pile and hoping it'll produce mushrooms is not your best plan of action. Colonize a couple cakes (the more the better) and then throw em into your compost pile. See what happens then.

What if you had a little bit of compost the size of a nickle bag of weed with mycelium growing on it, could you plant it outside? because im in the northeast too.

I agree. The chances of getting shrooms by shooting spores into compost are kinda low. It's really easy to colonize a cake or some grains in a few jars. Mix those with the compost and depending on the right conditions, you'll almost definitely get some nice shrooms!

Why the hell would you have a nickel bag size of compost anyway? That is random as hell.

But yeah, I guess that would work, but why not just colonize a couple jars?

Because i was growing a terrarium, and as it was colonising i took a little bit out and put it in a baggy thinking that would colonate faster then the whole thing to give me a couple shrooms while i wait.

i am with the jars for sure and you might get some nice resukts.. BUT The spore in there thing.. NOPE.. I dont think that might work because for one there is contams.. At least when you cake is colonized you might have a better chance for making this happen.

So how many shrooms did you get off of your nickel bag?

I didn't get any yet. Its still mycelium. My terrarium got confonscated. Thats why I was asking so i could start again. Its been in the baggy for about a month and its really starting to turn white now. I was thinking of either adding more compost to the bag so it would colonise all that shit, then i could put it out side using that dude moe's tek.

i dont think he would use the word confiscate if it weren't involving the 5-0
otherwise he would have said stolen

I called up homestead and got one of there kits a while back. There kit is a pretty cool thing becasue its fool proof and garunteed. Besides i learned as soon as you have one rye berry colonised you can spawn it in as much or as little compost as you want. And if you fuck up your shit, they send you another one. And they don't give you a hard time about. I'd do jars and stuff but I don't have a pressure cooker, nor am i able to order syringes offline. And if you fuck that up, its just better luck next time.
