Whats Aliens substrate?

Nice setup! nice shrooms!

i wanna be just like you!

you think that same casing/substrate would work just as well with Treasure Coast, or PES Hawaiian Race?

Oh, one more thing. How do you get humidity?

Thanks.

That is truyly amazing. I wish I had such success...What did you use for humidity?
What do you attribute the success to?

Aliens substrate is a mix of the following:

2/3 cup whole brown rice
2/3 cup whole grain quinoa
1/4 cup crushed finch seed
1/8 cup flax meal
1 cup vermiculite
2 cups water.

Mix both quinoa and brown rice with 2 cups water, and place in a pot on the stove top. Bring to a boil and immeadiately turn heat down low so it barely boils. Let this boil for 15 min. until the water is alomst gone. Then mix with the dry ingrediants and fill jars using the regular PF tek.

To answer your other questions, yes this will work just the same with the tressure coast strain cubensis. It will work with any cubensis strain.

About the hummidity question, casings don't need a secondary humidification source. The moisture in the casing is all it needs. If you use a container tall enough to case and fruit in, thats all you need. I don't even seal the top of my container. I set the lid on loose to allow gas exchange. Alot of people over humidify their casings. It causes mushrooms to grow excessivly tall(trying to grow above the built up co2) and often causes the stems to twist and weaken in which case the mushrooms fall over in very direction. I've also found over humidified mushrooms to be less potent.

I love the Equador strain, its definately a favorite. The main reason is how quick and easy it fruits, and more so for its yielding capabilities. I've never had a strain yield as much as the Equador.

As for potency its like all other cubensis. I know many say that its not a potent strain, but they just aren't doing something right, or maybe they're paticular strain sucks. I've grown both PF classic and Equador, the pontency was no different. I like to eat about 3-4 grams of each. They both do the same thing to me at the same dosage.


The Lizard,

In the taller tub, 4 cakes(half pint) were crumbled and cased with a 1/4" layer of moist potting soil. Like I just said, I used half pints, the tall ones to be specific(never been able to find the low profile half pints)

You said you leave the lids cracked for air exchange. Wouldn't that cause a problem with contams, bugs and such flying/crawling in the containers?

Oh yeah, one more question, do you think I could do it like that with Subsrate made from verm and brown rice flour, and jiffy mix and verm as a casing? Or will that not work?

PappaKaps, the substrate layer in that paticualr casing was about an inch and a half thick. I usually like to have about 2" of substrate, but I didn't have enough cakes this time around.

To answer your other question, yes, regular brf and verm cakes will work just the same. I'm not sure what jiffy mix is, so I cant say it'll work. If its just a potting soil with added peat, verm, perlite etc... It should work fine.


chillin, I didn't keep the light from the side. Usually I'll use an opaque container so that I don't get pins from the edges of the casig, but this time I was lazy and said screw it. It works either way. It just sucks using a clear container because you'll get full developed mushrooms that never surface. They just grow along the sides where its a bitch to pick them.

The Lizard,
