idea i had...
    #2488325 - 03/31/04 10:21 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

what if one took a big tupperware container, but in their verm/brf mix, added water, put the top on, and microwaved the hell out of it. then just popped the lid a little bit (after sterilizing the syringe) and squirting some spores into the substrate.

then let the mycelia grow, then just pop the lid when it's time to fruit.

that seems like the easiest possible method i could possibly think of. would this work? either way, i'm going to to try it...

Sounds like a neat idea, but here are my concerns:

1) The substrate would have to be thin so that the microwaves penetrate deeply enough to sterilize.
2) The substrate doesn't get too dried out during the sterilization.
3) Microwaving BRF would cook it into a thick pasty goo that the mycelium would have trouble colonizing.

You should by all means try it if all you've got to loose is some spore solution though

don't people microwave their pf jars to sterilize them sometimes? would i HAVE to have any verm in there, or could i just have a thin layer on the bottom just so i can get the mycelia going and possibly case it?

I wish psychedelic mushrooms were legal, because I would like to indulge in this amazing fruit of the earth. Unfortunately, I can only learn about this interesting hobby, and cultivate legal mushrooms.

There are plastic containers that can be PCd. I know a guy who does his casings sort of like that. He puts what he needs in the container PCs it Shoots up the substrate and lets it colonize in the container. He has great luck with it but I kind of think its a little nuts.
