Two questions....Growing kits and dung substrate
    #1981902 - 10/05/03 07:31 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I'm new to shroom cultivation. I've got two question. The first is the reliability and yield from an easy grow box such as the one at Amazing Nature. It mentions customs has been siezing some of these. Does anyone know how often this happens or if it's worth the risk? Second question: I have a fresh supply of horse dung from my nieghbor. Could horse dung be used in a substrate mix, and if it was, would it work better? Sorry if any of this sounds like stupid questions, I'm really new to this. I appreciate any help you guys can give me, peace.

Well the growkits are illigal in the usa despite what they say. Im not sure how they work, it seems sketchy. You can use dryed horse dung from the feilds for a substrate, the best substrate you could use for mushrooms, You can get huge yeilds with dung. The growkit says between 250-300 grams of shrooms(fresh) which is 25-30 grams dry(about an ounce).

Yeah, if it only takes 10 days, there must already be mycelium in it.

Thanks man. About the dung, how much should I use and what percentage of the substrate should it be? Do you know of any FAQs on this? Thanks.
