1. You inoculate your grain spawn with culture from agar or lc (sterile technique)
2. You let that culture overgrow your grain spawn
3. You inoculate your bulk substrate (coir) with your grain spawn. (open air)
4. Your bulk substrate colonizes
5. ...
6. PROFIT!

for step 1, is this the same as inoculating with a spore syringe? i see that lc is like a step ahead of a spore syringe.

The recommended way is to start with agar. LCs are next level. But yes, you can also inoculate with a syringe, but you won't be saving much time and there's a lesser chance of success.

If you aren't worried about a higher chance of contaminating and dumping a few jars in the begining, go a head and go straight from syringe to the jars. You have a moderate chance of having some clean jars, assuming you use good techniques, and trusted sponsors. At the same time, use that syringe to start some agar plates. If your jars don't do so hot with the syringe alone, your next round will do much better once you have clean agar dishes ready.

If I could do it again I would have used agar like I did but also rolled the dice and inoculated some jars as well. Worst case scenario I would have thrown a bit more bird seed out by now.

When I started out I bought 4 syringes from a big vendor and ran 20+ grows syringe to grain without losing a jar.

Blew my mind after everything I’d read prior. I started 7 jars expecting one or two to survive and then all of a sudden I’m harvesting every other morning and have piles of shrooms.

Find a vendor with PE syringes and there’s a good chance all their stuff will be pretty clean. Apparently they have to use a special machine to make PE syringes and the process also removes most bacteria.

nice. thanks for all the responses.

i'm trying to start minimally and this method seemed stupid simple.

plan on making oat spawn and inoculating from syringe into jar.  then mix w/ the coir substrate.  any spawn to substrate ratio recommendations for the 6 qt shoe boxes?

I use one quart, a lot of people do two.

I just put handfuls of coir in until it’s as deep as I need it then add spawn, mix, level, coir top layer.

Definitely will try this method now. "I just thought 'why waste 2 shoeboxes, just use a grocery bag" made me fall in love with Bod's bod.

In Hebrew, the words "wine" and "secret" hold the same numerologic value. When wine comes in, secrets spill out. Do you think the person who said that knew mushrooms? When mushrooms come in... Is there anything beyond a secret?

So if I want to colonize to 50-80 percent before putting into fruiting conditions do I do that in total darkness with the lid ON with no FAE holes in the tub? I’m a little confused as to whether to use the lid or move straight to the grocery bag. Thanks

Just the lid will be like fruiting. To spawn run shoeboxes I usually use a grocery bag liner pulled over the outside of the shoebox, then when you put the lid on the bag seals it enough to keep it from fruiting normally. When it’s done I just drag the scalpel around the edges and pull the extra bag off.

Or just make a foil lid.

Profit? Lol
What a write up
I mean people do what they want but damn
:P

I’ve done the shopping bag thing and it does def work but you need to look to make sure they’re getting the air they need. I almost suffocated a flush once because I didn’t check. That said it’s very easy to fix the bag to allow more/less obv.

I still love tubs the most probably, having a terrarium is awesome and a mono or a shoebox mini is easy. My fav is having a bunch of minis with like 1-2qts spawn and just running diff cultures at the same time and comparing. And harvest will be a treat

@AKA those pics in your sig are gorgeous, the albino flush is fire, I love when it’s dense like that

I would like to thank the OP and all the other countless members of this forum that have made my first grow so successful. By following basic instruction and keeping it simple I think I will produce what will be a significant flush of mushrooms. I have four shoeboxes, they were all colonized at the same time but have different degrees of ripeness. I harvested the first five mushrooms tonight with the wet weight of approximately 52 wet grams, and can only expect many many more to come. I have included photos, mostly to show how easy it is to do if you just follow the instructions. I did 3 1 cup BRF cakes per 1 quart of substrate, I did pasteurize some Pooh with vermiculite and Coco, did what I’m calling a “sous vide” tek (more to come on that). Other than that I did the dub tub (mainly so I could observe without being intrusive), put the micropore tape around the air opening and just waited. It really is that easy, thanks again 1 million percent to this forum and all the people who contribute and try to make it as easy as possible for people like me. I don’t know a lot but that Snow White mycelium can’t be bad 😬😃🤔🤪.
