Bulk Growing
    #2574112 - 04/18/04 03:47 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I've been growing shrooms now for about a year and im interested in stepping up the process. I've been using the PF-Tek which works great but it doesnt produce shrooms fast enough. My question to you guys is, Which bulk growing tek do you prefer and about how many dry grams does one tray put off a week?

Here's a good, simple tek that will do the trick... I used 18 PF jars to spawn mine, rather than grains. You get a LOT more than you would with just jars... the only hard part might be finding a good source of manure.

It's a mycotopia post... hope nobody here gets upset with me for it. Ironically, mycofile posted it here first.

Edit: Actually, this method is a bit slower than just fruiting jars, but the wait is more than worth it. As for yield, mycofile said he got over nine ounces dry off the first flush, and the tek was good for a few to many flushes.

I checked out that Tek, it looks pretty good but since it uses dung will it put off a bad odor? The casing will be in a seperate bedroom in my apartment and i dont want the whole place reaking.

Do up some rye or other grain they are much faster then doing cakes. Spawn to horse or cow poo there are several teks in the faq on how to do it.

I'd case some grain first and try that. Seems to be pretty fast.

These are 4 weeks from spore to the pic.

I recently did just this same thing (stepped up to a bulk procedure) and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was.

I used popcorn, spawned to straw in large rubbermaid totes. One tote generally gives 4 ounce flushes, in my last experience (that was my first bulk experience, so I may be able to do better next time).

Next time, I'm going to mix in either some compost or some worm castings with the straw for a little more "oomph" in the substrate.

OK, DumbAss.
'Coir' is coco coir which a product made from coconut husks. It can soak up a whole bunch of water and therefore makes it a great casing material. It also lightens in color when it is dry and therefore makes it very easy to tell when your casing layer needs more moisture. It is sold at pet stores as reptile bedding in what looks like a brown brick. If you get some, you will only want to break off a small portion to use because it will expand enormously. One bricks worth will easily fill a 5 gallon bucket when rehydrated, I believe.

P.S. I was just kidding about the dumbass thing. :lol:

Very nice Magash. I think im going to take your advice and use rye after reading some more Teks.
