outdoor contam questions
    #1802041 - 08/11/03 04:25 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Sorry if its in the FAQ or other places, but Ive looked and cant find anything. Everyone says in alot of places that you dont have to worry about contams outdoors. My question is this: Can you just get horse poo from a horse farm, moisten it and throw it down for an outdoor patch, without any kind of sterilization or anything? Same with cow poo and straw? I guess mother nature takes over, but it seems that if you mixed some spawn into those materials, they would be filled with tons of contams, and the myc might have a hard time taking over. Thanks for any answers.

I use cow manure compost from the store and I don't sterilize or pasturize it. Just mix in your spawn in layers with the poo and straw and you are good to go.
You could spend some more time making the bed better by doing this and that. This and that being whatever is needed to produce the right environment from your natural environment for your type of mushroom.

god does it all the time and she's been at this for a lot longer than any of us.

a little pasturization goes a long way if you want decent yeilds and no competitor mushrooms that may be undesireable. Stamet's books offer a lot of info on how to do bulk sterilization and pasturization for outdoor beds.
