Would this work?
    #2061772 - 10/31/03 11:21 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I read about a Potatoe Dextrose Agar in The Mushroom Cultivator.

Would using the water from boiling potatoes in place of reg water work in the PF Tek?

Im fairly new at trying to grow. I have birthed my first batch recently and was getting ready to start another. I have read about MANY diffrent ways to grow. I want to stay with the PF Tek till I get my substrate right. Then I will go to casing.

I thought that using the water from boiling potatoes would give them more nutrients, make them grow better.

Is this a good idea, or a bad one?

sure it will work out fine, people use pond water which must be some of the most contam ridden stuff out there. when pcing the contams are killed and you are left with any nutes the liquid might have. in any case it should not be any more prone to contams as long as you pc and may provide add. nutes. give it a shot. i can't see have it could hurt.

good luck

Kool!

I bought some Brown Rice and am going to blend some into a powder. I also bought some Wild Bird Seed. I think I will blend the WBS and try it in powder form too. In one of the mixes I will use the potatoe water to compare the growth.
