After some trial and error I ended up moving blocks outside and fruiting in open air (temps were optimal for this).







I plan to work out my indoor issues and see if I can get better results in the future, but for now the blocks are doing great outside :thumbup:

Can I eat the fluffy white foamy bits on the top of the oyster spawn bag that they sent me if they don't have sawdust inside. They look like little poofy yummy white marshmallows.

I've eaten oyster mycelia. It smells like almonds to me. I love the smell. I'd probably leave it alone though lol

I think they are aborted oysters or something. They are different then the mycelia and they aren't rotten. Just malformed. It's the size of my palm.

It may be similar to blobs in cubes. Like mushroom matter that never formed into a defineable fruit body.

Did you introduce that block into fruiting?

Nahh. I just got it in the mail. If it's solid and clean and fleshy inside I'll eat it. I know it's made of oyster something so it will probably taste good.

I don't think I want to deal with trying to sterilize this cocoa mulch. I'm thinking 5 gallon bucket and some boiling water at this point. Just pasteurize. Good idea? bad idea?

oh, nah just warm water soak. submerge it under water for an hour. sometimes the bags come fully hydrated. i have used it directly out of the bag when i first bought the bag. but after a year i would soak and rehydrate.

Good to know. Someone told me I couldn't use bucket tek and it only worked on coir because of the pressure causing heat as the blocks were being pressed. But I assumed the heat from roasting the cocoa beans is pretty substantial as well. I just poured a pot of boiling water in a bucked and made sure to stir it real good and left it for an hour. Then I dug bot my hands in and made sure to get all the heavily saturated mulch mixed in with the upper mulch let it cool and then stuffed my bags. I decided to use the grow bags I had instead.

Scott mulch concerns me. They use petrochemicals to color that stuff. Someone needs to leach a bunch of it and watch the crap that comes out of it to see if it's really safe. The ever descriptive man made additives and polymers is a slick way of saying petrochemicals. Also mulch can come from anywhere. There are no strict guidelines against pesticides. They can grind up old buildings and houses into mulch full of nasty shit. I'm a horrible person and I'm raining on your parade I know. Scott isn't going to tell you that.

EDIT: Just found this so it's somewhat better. "Earthgro® by Scotts® never uses construction debris or pallet wood that may contain nails or harmful chemicals. Only natural recovered forest products are used"

Do you have that MSDA for my to analyze? I don't want my mushy friends getting sick from prolonged exposure. Mushrooms are really good at absorbing chemicals especially petrochemicals. That's how they perform soil remediation.

You have to understand there are some really toxic things in womens makeup that shouldn't be on anyones face. There is even formaldehyde as one example in it. I rarely wear makeup and when I do it's stuff like bare minerals.

Nice dude!
I'm going to try some colonized grain and sawdust mixed and left to colonize in smaller containers and run them as cakes in a mini sgfc I made. Having 0 luck with the ole bucket.
You gave me the idea by running bags in a tub!

And blackcat, if you're worried about mulch, you can always buy hardwood fuel pellets and prep them the same way as coir. Just requires different measurements, but can be prepped in a bucket as well.

Ahhh. Yeah I was thinking of fuel pellets next if my cocoa mulch doesn't go as planned. The place near me has a shit ton for sale and they guys cool and will hook me up. Sometime being a girl has it's perks.

I'm a little concerned about the use of cocoa bean shells because in tropical environments they have to use pesticides or things will be destroyed by bugs. There is also less legislation in some countries. If it works out I'll have to find a company and find out where they are sourcing their cocoa shells from. Mushrooms can in their own rights detoxify your body so the pesticides may not matter but I can't be sure the beans are rinsed before roasting and the shells are quite absorbant.

Darnit.  The spot where I was going to attempt a proper oyster grow employing this method has fallen through due to a broken foot.  If I am going to begin to take my mushrooms to market I am going to need to set up a proper growing room for these mushrooms.  I'll figure something out.  Maybe it's time to get a ready built storage unit form Lowes for a couple hundred dollars, slap it in the back yard, and fashion it into a mini green house for oysters, and such.

Also I just bought this for my oysters. Going to center it on my plastic garage shelf and cut a hole for it. Cause why? Too damn lazy to mist all the time. :smile:

Hi, thanks for the link, kittycat, but if I am going to spend 600 dollars on a structure I am building it my self, and designing it to my own, personal specs.  Oysters produce a lot in a small area too, so I won't need a space that big immediately.  It's easier to control the environment of a small space as apposed to a larger space, also.

Best idea to build it yourself! I'm sure for 600 bucks you could build a pretty big space.
