Potato flour?
    #2536532 - 04/07/04 09:09 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hi, All.

  First of all I would like to thank everyone for all the excellent info! Great job.

I'm a basic newbie to growing shrooms. I've grown one small crop. Three ? Pt. Jars. Thanks to all this info, not one problem.

(I'm not a newbie to eating them :smile: I lived in Houston for five years and we used to pick them buy the shopping bag full).

I had a brain fart and was wondering if anyone ever tried to use potato flour 50/50 verm.
I've noticed that potato water is used for growing mycelium for inoculation with a syringe.

What I am thinking is peeling potatoes, slicing them on a mandolin, drying them in a dehydrator and grinding them up in a blender or coffee grinder. I know it?s a lot of extra work but I was wondering about yield. Thought I?d give it a try if it hasn?t been done. If it has please let me know the results so I don't waste my time or yours.  Thanks.

Do you mean doing a 50% potato flour 50% verm mix as a substrate ? I never tried it but I think you want to avoid the starch contained in the potatoes.

I doubt anyone is watching this thread but the reason I asked the question is that being a noob I've read ALL the teks on this site and at least three others. Somewhere on one of them was a tek for growing mycelium in potato water. To be used to inoculate jars. Boiling the taters, and using the water.
