Several mushroom questions
    #1598747 - 06/01/03 06:26 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I have a few, thx in advance

1) I have verm, but its less then medium grade, not sand, but still small. I was wondering if anyone has had good luck using small grain verm in the basic BRF pf cake? I have heard medium is best.

2) I heard that small verm bits absorb more water and the normal 2;2;1 ratio wont work with small grade? anyone know a new formula if needed?

and

3) Do different strains of cubensis like different substrates?? If so, what( in your opinion) is the best material to colonize Equadorians, and case them with?

I've had the best success with course grade vermiculite. I've also had success with medium and fine grain vermiculite, but mycelium appeared to grow faster in the open spaces of the course grade.

I never alter my formulas to suit the vermiculite grade and have not noticed any negative effects.

As far as different strains go, it really seems to be personal preference. Although some strains appear to colonize faster than others, the differences are marginal at best.

About the verm: I use fine verm here, which works very well for PF jars. If you intend to use casing, you're better of with (very) course verm.

About the moisture of the mix: remember that mycelium tends to grow better in too dry circumstances than in too wet circumstances, so stick to the given formulas, unless you really end up with a Kalahari-mix.
One way of testing the humidity is mixing the ingredients, let them rest for a couple of minutes, and feel if the mix is humid. It should be slighlty humid in your hands, absolutely not wet!

1: Doesn't matter.
2:The diff is only a minute amount.Add 15ml if it looks dry.
3:Straw Log Tek (Don't need casing)&Ryche Hawk's 50/50+ casing for other substrates.
