Questioning my DUNG
    #2583559 - 04/20/04 05:15 PM (14 years, 3 days ago)

Ok umm I think I made a big mistake. Everything seemed to be going so good. It still may be, but I'm not sure. For my casing mixture I used a 50/50 organic dehydrated dung and miracle gro aqua coir. It looks like the mycellium already came through in like about 36-48 hours. Is that possible?? I'm using puerto rican strain for the substrate and the casing layer is about 1 1/2 inches deep. Could it have came up that fast? I mean I broke up the substrate into the finest finest pieces. What gives? So my question is: is it ok to use store bought dehdrated dung without pasteurizing it or steralizing it for the casing layer? And also, If it is contaminated.....do people still sometimes grow it anyways and will the mushrooms be all evil and crazy like in that movie Existenz with the poison pod?

Ok guys thanks...

-Matt

No, you cannot use it with out sterilising or pasturising it.
Why are you using dung as a casing? most casings are inert
and nutrient poor.

OK I just cased my colonized substrate with an underlayer of wet perlite. The case is as described. I have it in the fruiting chamber now.... So If I'm really lucky huh? I once won 52 rentals from blockbuster in wendy's movie mania.... and today i one a free cup of coffee.. so maybe i'm fine then. Either that or start the fuck over...man that shit is frustrating...ever made a big mistake like that?
