Awesome news hippie. Sounds like an easy new substrate has been found. For the cost though, I will stick with popcorn most likely. It is just so cheap.

all work was done in the open air, a dirty kitchen.
no special precautions were taken.
i do think there's potential here to revolutionize
cultivation, at least for those not already set in their ways.
but for the newbies, this will certainly make most other teks
obsolete. not the pf tek, which will still be easier to fruit,
but other grains. i mean, why bother when you can just open a can ?
just as canned foods replaced fresh at our dinner tables last century,
canned substrate can replace home-made and save us hours of labor.

i know of no other similar experiments with brocolli tops or anything else for that matter.
but in light of the fact that canned hominy works, it certainly makes one wonder what else is sitting on the store shelves waiting to be discovered. green beans, carrots perhaps ?

i expect most will stick with what they already know.
this is aimed at the new ones,
forget a pc and rye or birdseed, etc.
just a few cans of hominy, some post office tyvek,
a few jars and some spores.
might not even need jars if the can-o-spawn thing works out,
we have 2 cans started.
the retail price for hominy was 37 cents a pound, roughly.
that compares pretty favorably with popcorn for most.
of course, that is wet weight, so true cost is a bit higher

I did not realize it could be had for that cheap. I will probably try it if I can get it that cheap. I guess we will have to wait and see how long it takes to colonize and all that.

Ehh... Could you refresh my memory...

Has anyone successfully done hominy yet just steaming, without PCing?

I think that's the big deal about this tek, that it would allow newbies to do grain without a PC. That would be awsome, and a viable alternative to the PF tek, even for a first timer.

ok, as i said earlier, other mycotopiates are hard at work on this hominy project.
here's a report on hominy just posted at mycotopia.net.

another hominy project
since no one has really put up much for pics, i thought i would share these....

some jars were innoc'd with liquid myc, some with spores.
mazapatec strain.
about 2 weeks old at this time.
all double-end cased.

Hmmm.. My buddy is going to start the brocolli and green bean projects.. Going to the store tonight to look for suitable mediums.

far out, it'd be cool if it works.
good luck.
and try hominy, too, we KNOW it works.

here's my crappy pic,
kinda hard to spot but
the mycellia is now roughly covering 5-10% of the entire jar. the other two are coming along nicely as well, but the verm is more spread-out, making it harder to spot the mycellia.


another report just in-

Awesome looking guys! Great to see that my results can be replicated. As for the one cake i've got it's not looking so hot. The few pins it did sprout are growing very slowly. This could be due to the contams though. Also casing the mix could make a huge difference. Even at the worst this seems to be a very effecient way to create spawn. Good luck guys!

By nilla (Nilla) on Thursday, July 31, 2003 - 08:16 pm: Edit


Thought id add my homminy info,I have
two pints going on there forth day,one is z strain tissue and the other is pf strain tissue.
Both are showing signs of life,very pleased!
Im wondering if i should have to shake these like other grain teks,or leave it be.

just in from cubester,
his 1st [and only] hominy cake has begun to fruit.
not overly impressive i'll admit but the guy's a newbie,
it should have been cased no doubt.
still, this proves cubensis will fruit on canned hominy.

Hmmm.. Do you think this would make a decent spawn?

Dam, that shit does look green.

I just called them, and apparently Sam's Club doesn't carry Hominy.

yeah, i looked there too but apparently hominy isn't very popular anymore except in certain ethnic communities. still can find it in just about any decent sized grocery store though, right by the canned corn.
cubester said the mean greenies wiped out most of his pf cakes too but that has nothing to do with hominy as such, he's just a newbie starting out and everyone gets the green now and then, on every kind of substrate.
so try to look past the imperfections in our limited study and see the potential if one did it the right way.

just checked the hominy this AM and the mycellia is ripping thru it about as fast as with popcorn. i predict these 3 qts will be done in 3-4 more days.

ok,
well it turns out the panama syringe was definitly contam'd, the other 2 qts done with it have joined their lipstick moldy brother.

but the 3 qts done with the blue meanie syringe are still kicking major ass.
just shook yesterday
and they've already recovered nicely
and spred to cover proly about 50-60% of each of the jars.
here's 2 more crappy pix.

 
canned hominy  :thumbup:

today they look to be roughly 90-95% colonized.



5 days after germination.
