HYDROPONIC MUSHROOMS
    #2576870 - 04/19/04 08:18 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I just received a pm and I was informed that a friend just got some "Hydroponically Grown "mushrooms,now I have grown somethings Hydroponically,but is it possible to do that?
Seems to me that would be way too much water for mushies,but I guess you can adjust the flow(if useing ebb &flow tables).

It just seems to me that this is just asking for contams cause I have seen all the green stuff growing in my resevior bucket and its nasty as hell(even if changed once a week).

I would just like to know if it is truely possible and is it beneficial to do this?

:thumbup: :cool:

This probably means they were grown in a hydrapod.

In a word, yes and no. That might be two words that might directly contradict themselvs, and thats correct. Alot of mushrooms can be grown in a non-soil based mixture (BRF/verm isnt' soil, neither is straw). These two substates could hardly, however, be called "non nutritive", and the organisms don't take their nutrients directly from the water.

The standard definition of hydroponics can somewhat apply, that being a non-soil based growing medium, however, since the mushrooms still aren't being delivered their nutrients via a liquid solution, it could easily also NOT meet that definition.

It is possible to devise a system that automatically deals with issues such as air exchange and humidity, however, this is no more "hydroponic" than installing vent fans and greenair timers.


So the real answer, "hydroponic" mushrooms are as bogus as "Triple dipped" blotter paper.

As for your reservoir, try wrapping it with foil-tape to keep light out, it sounds like an algae issue, and algae can only grow if it's got some light to feed on. If you are using an ebb and flow table, black plastic (like trashbags, but 8mil) can be used to cover the rockwool (or hydro-stone buckets) and the liquid in between the plants. Only your stems poke up. Algae is't that big of an issue, really, with ebb and flow, but it can fuck shit up with drip systems (goddamned motherfucking drip hoses!)

I got ya!

When I first heard it the first thing I thought was to see shrooms coming out of my set-up and I knew it couldnt be done with any success(I think).but the way you put it,I guess all home cultivated mushrooms are hydroponics unless cased to dirt right?

Oh btw I cured my problem with the algea a long time ago-Just useing that as an example.
