i don't understand
    #2388118 - 02/29/04 04:26 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)


I have a problem ... I can't get jars like you people use for making cakes . I can't get the cake in one piece ( birdseed tek ) out of the jar , what should i do ? Should i case it ?

Will it grow if i just get everything out and place it on a aluminium foil ? something like a flat cake ...

I was thinking if casing to use this method - on the bottom layer wet saw dust , then colonised birdseed clumps , then on the top compost+soil  ... will this work ?

I'm preety new to this , need some help  :shiftyeyes:

No saw dust wont work, or wont work well.
You need to pasturise some straw, and mix the
seed into that. Look up bulk tecs and spawning.

You say you have birdseed cakes? the idea if bird
seed is that ut should be used as a spawn.

It?s ok. Make sure to buffer it with limestone flour.

Ok . Thanks .
So this is how i'm going to do it . First i pasteurize some straw in the oven ( loki's method ) and then i mix it with colonised birdseed , and when the straw gets colonised i add casing mix made from peat with added gypsum and chalk to neutralize and make good PH for the shrooms ... Is this ok ?

Sounds good to me :smile2:
Don't use too much gypsum, you only need a little.
I just use a little handfull of crushed oystershell,
the kind feed to chickens.

Good luck with it.
