beginner needs a little help
    #2092972 - 11/11/03 04:51 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I just bought six jars of pre mixed and sterilized substrate and a b+ syringe. About how long will it take for cakes in jars to be put in terrarium and whats the best way i should go about this. The site I bought from sold a etrrarium but it was just a clear rubbermaid bin and it was 30 bucks so i said fuck it i also have perlite, but what else could or should i add to ensure a yield thanks

No need for the hygrometer if you use perlite though :wink: or well not as much of one.

Most people are probably seeing more like 20 days from innoculation to birthing, depending on ambient temps and the amount of innoculant used.

You really don't need anything else to get a crop.  Just birth them into the terrerium, don't set them directly on the wet perlite (use a square of foil or a jar lid to set them on), and give them light and fresh air.

Of course there is a lot more you can do, but that's all that is needed.  I would recomend the double end casing as a good way to increase yield with very little to no risk.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

Any kind of light. Normal room light, diffuse sunlight, flourescent, incandesscent, whatever. The more bright and direct the light, the straighter the shrooms grow, to a certain extent. I always thought a cool white flouro within a few feet of the terrerium top worked as well as anything.

A casing is a non-nutritious moist covering that supplies the fungus with a moisture resevoir while providing a micro-climate suitable for fruitbody formation and sometimes adding the benefit of beneficial microorganisms which aid the fungus. Components can be vermiculite, coco coir, peat, even soil (bad idea though).

Look through the faq in the casing section here:

For you though, I wouldn't recomend anything other than the double ended casing tek as others tend to be more problematic, especially for beginners. it's here:
