Compost Jars
    #2053148 - 10/29/03 10:21 AM (13 years, 1 day ago)

This is a new "tek" that is being tried out.  I was trying to find a very simple way for newbies to grow mushrooms on a shit-based substance, thus increasing fruit size and potency (supposedly).

For this, you need pint sized jars (wide mouth), large ziplock baggies(gallon sized) and a mycelia/spore syringe.

I mix the compost with just a little bit of vermiculite, then add water. The consistency should be a little bit "fluffy" but not much mroe than the compost is itself.  You want it wet enough that squeezing it makes a few drops of water come out of your hand.  Fill a pint jar approx 3/4 of hte way with this mixture. Make sure to stir the compost with a fork before every forkload goes into the jar so it maintains a somewhat fluffy consistency.  Put the lid on (plastic lid with polyfil works, one hole is all ya need) and PC for 1h30m @ 20psi.  Remove from PC, put into a "clean" box and allow to cool. Inject with 2-3cc's of mycelia or spore syringe.  Incubate.

After they are fully colonized, you have the option of casing inside the jar.  If you want to, it surely won't hurt it. a 1/4" 50/50+ won't hurt anything :smile:  Case it in the jar. Next, wrap duct tape to cover all visible mycelia (so no pins occur on the side of the jar where you can't get them). Open your plastic bag and put the ziplock part around the threaded part of the pint jar.  Tape it in place.  This makes a nice humidity dome.  All they need is ideal fruiting conditions.  This produces 5-6 flushes of GIGANTIC, very potent, mushrooms.  And since you have the self-contained dome, you don't evn need a terrarium. Poke a few holes in the top of the baggie for air to get out, and you are set. Enjoy :smile:

I think that this is MUCH easier than the PF-tek, and you don't need a terrarium at all.
