If your a newb I suggest you get this book. Here?s a taste.

Psilocybe cubensis Growth Parameters
taken from


Paul Stamets and J. S. Chilton: The Mushroom Cultivator
If you want more information (and there is plenty!), go buy the book


Mycelial Types: Rhizomorphic to linear; whitish in overall color but often bruising bluish where injured.
Standard Spawn Medium: Rye grain. See Chapter III.
Fruiting Substrate: Rye grain; wheat straw; leached horse or cow manure and/or horse manure/straw compost balanced to a 71-74% moisture content.
Method of Preparation: See Chapters III, V, and VI. Pasteurization achieved through exposure to live steam for 2 hours at 140?F. throughout the substrate. Straw or compost should be filled to a depth of 6-12 inches. Straw should be spawned at a rate of 2 cups/sq. ft.

Spawn Run:
Relative Humidity: 90%.
Substrate Temperature: 84-86 ?F. Thermal death limits have been established at 106?F.
Duration: 10-14 days.
CO2: 5000-10,000 ppm.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 0 per hour.
Type of Casing: After fully run, cover with the standard casing whose preparations described in Chapter VIII. Layer to a depth of 1-2 inches. The casing should be balanced to an initial pH of 6. 8-7. 2.

Post Casing/Prepinning:
Relative Humidify: 90 %. Substrate Temperature: 84-86?F.
Duration of Case Run: 5-10 days.
CO2: 5000-10,000 ppm.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 0 per hour.
Light: Incubation in total darkness.

Primordia Formation:
Relative Humidify: 95-100%.
Air Temperature: 74-78 ?F.
Duration: 6-10 days.
CO2: less than 5000 ppm.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 1 -3 per hour. (For practical purposes, fanning a terrarium 2-3 times a day is sufficient)
Light: Diffuse natural or exposure for 12-16 hours/day of grow-lux type fluorescent light high in blue spectra at the 480 nanometer wavelength. (See Chapters IV and IX).

Cropping:
Relative Humidify: 85-92%. (For cakes: 95-100% )
Air Temperature: 74-78 ?F.
CO2 : less than 5000 ppm.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 1 -3 per hour. (For practical purposes, fanning a terrarium 2-3 times a day is sufficient)
Flushing Pattern: Every 5-8 days.
Harvest Stage: When the cap becomes convex and soon after the partial veil ruptures.
Light: Indirect natural or same as above.

Yield Potential: Average yields are 2-4 Ibs. /sq. ft. over a 5 week cropping period. Maximum yield potential has not been established.

Moisture Content of Mushrooms: 92% water; 8% dry matter.

so tell me this, no one would answer on the other thread i posted it in. Up in that long procedure, it says that for fruiting, it should be 74-78 degrees. Nowhere in the faq, could i find out why this should be. I realize that a temp drop tells the mycelium to to pin, but I'm wondering if after a cold shock, if you could bring the temp back up 79-86 degrees for fruiting. would this not be good for the cakes/casings? my closet has a temperature ranging from 79-86 all by itself with no lights on or heaters, and thats where the fruiting was going to go on. please help me out here, i don't think it would be too easy to cool down my closet, but any advice would be cool. thanks.

shwowsh
first off, yes, cold shocking is a way to tell it to pin.
secondly, in all likelyhood, it'd grow at higher temperatures, perhaps not optimally, but growth would still happen.

to put it in perspective...
a wild mushroom is subjected to many more temperature changes than ones grown in a closet with a degree range of +-8. not to mention drops in humidity, no rain, and many other things. but the important thing is that the mushroom does continue to grow, in spite of these adverse conditions, once again, not optimally, but still growing, doing its mushroom cycle of spreading spores and decomposing organic matter.
hope this helps

and back to the topic of this thread..
magash, that book happens to be on top of my want lists at the moment, but im still a lil *nervous* about getting it anywhere. someday my wants will override my paranoia..

Book Stores don't report their sales to the narcs. Even if they did, how on Earth could they implicate you if you pay cash? I'd be more embarrassed buying porn.

I don't think that the book is centered on growing illegal species of mushrooms.

not at all. it talks about what happens when spores germinate, what they like to grow strong, control of environmental conditions to help pinning, the bugs, casing layers, plus loads more. and what parameters suit each of about 50 species.

much of the text refers to growing agaricus (button) mushrooms.

it's a must-buy  :thumbup:
