Bulk production plan... Whadya think?
    #2557232 - 04/14/04 12:13 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I know that you can innoculate a variety of different substances, and I know you can get good yields from them, but I've found that many kits come with high-quality materials and spores if you're willing to pay for them... So here's a little bulk production plan of mine using a couple kits mixed with some other methods... Tell me what you think...
The materials would be two large plastic containers (the ones you get from Wal-Mart), one slightly bigger. Using an aquarium heater and a grommit, you'd make an incubator. Then, following the instructions of the kit you'd boil and sterilize the substrate (in these particular kits, straw) from both kits, add the mycelium infected birdseed that come with the kits into the straw, and place them into the smaller tupperware container, then left for a couple weeks at ideal mycelium growing temperature.
After the mycelium had grown throughout, the straw would be cased with a layer of moss (comes with kits) and vermiculite (from a garden centre or something), and left for the recommended period. A 20 watt light bulb would also be custom-built into the kit for lighting once fruiting started.
Well there's my plan for some bulk shroom growing. I figure more surface area in the bin and a more easily controllable temperature would work out quite nicely. Feedback and tips on this would also be very helpful, Thanks!

Sounds doable, but you might want to cut your teeth on a simpler project before going straight to bulk

you can get all of these "high-quality materials" in places other than a kit for much cheaper.

my suggestion is to try bulk grow methods on a smaller scale. Like instead of using a whole whole large rubbermaid, make one incubation chambe and make one Gladware of dung and straw or whatever bluk substrate you deside on

I've already done some smaller projects, and I think a fairly sized bulk project wouldn't be too much of a bad idea. And the reason I don't plan on doing it without the use of kits is because neither I, or anyone I know, have a pressure cooker, and I don't have the funds. I'm thinking this would make innoculating substrates a little too risky for my liking.

You might want to considder getting a 4-pack of mycobags instead of 2 kits. Im thinking of doing that also, since in my situation a PC is not practical either.

PC = $20-$30 at Walmart. :smile: shop around. Plus, the money u are spending on these kits will be more then enough to buy all the stuff u get with the kit, plus the pc.

also straw will generate its own heat so a friend of mine just uses blue led's. cost alittle more than just a bulb but i just hook them up to a battery and let them go. all you need is radio shack. blue lesd, wire, battery and some 470 ohm resisters. you shouldnt need more than 2 led's and you can file down some of the bulb to make it flater so the light is more evenly spread
