Not enough supplies, some advice please
    #2603668 - 04/26/04 05:19 AM (14 years, 5 hours ago)

I'm picking up my spores from the post office today...
all I got is Rye and BRF at home for substrate, can this alone be used.
BRF is for casing onely (opposed to substrate), right? 
I also have access to fine saw dust (if thats what you can call it)... could this be used.
I could wait till I get the opertunity to buy vermiculite... would it be better to wait?
Its been a while... and I kind of forgot some basics to growing mushrooms, thats why I'm asking.

The way I remember it, you PC the rye, spore it... and when the jar starts colonizing you put the verm+BRF on top... but is verm a necessitiy? :confused: :confused: :confused:

Actually... you know what, I'm sorry. Confusing way of posting me questions and getting my point through. I have a document at home somewhere (if I can find it) that explains the procedure step by step. I just wanted to know how I could do the pf tek without vermiculite...
But I'm putting the confusion aside and clicking my patience on, if I'm going to grow Its worth the patience... gotta have that vermiculite I guess.

It wouldnt be the PF Tek without vermiculite!
Just about every garden center has it and it only costs 3-5 bucks.

If you are going to have to go to the post office to get your spores go to the nearest Nursery and pick-up your verm,it's not worth trying to change the tek-it will fail more times than not and I know you dont want to fail after all you have done so far right?

Go get the vermiculite-you'll thank yourself afterwards.

:thumbup: :cool:

Not to be annoying, but I wish I knew what Nursery would mean in Norwegian... what sells in a Nursery (except verm)? I found verm in a pet store once, really expensive and meant for tarantula's though.

I live by one of the biggest greenhouses/garden houses in Bergen area, so I'll ask them... I actually study there so I might get it discount cheap. I just didnt think of it cause I have never seen them use vermiculite... and thanks for the pronounce help, I know how to say it in english, how to say it in norwegian is another thing.

Nursery=Garden center or a place that sells plants and vegetables,trees and shrubs,cacti and succulents,and the supplies to grow them with.

Yes the "{greenhouse/garden house" should have it.It is used as a soil additive to retain moisture and release it back into the soil as it dries.

I had a similar problem (no idea wtf vericulite is in Japanese...)

I did an image search on my browser and found it the very next day at the supermarket garden section...  It's quite easy to spot...  very 'sparkly' (like 'fools gold' :wink: ) and very light...

Still haven't ID'd perlite, though... :frown:

BRF and vermiculite are good for the PF Tek, you can use the Rye as a substrate

if you had a woodloving species, yes, with cubensis unfortunately, no.

IMO, yes, then you can do cakes with both rye (try some ground and whole) and PF style BRF cakes...

Quote:

The way I remember it, you PC the rye, spore it... and when the jar starts colonizing you put the verm+BRF on top... but is verm a necessitiy?





you remember wrong... check the FAQ... BRF+Verm = PF Cake... never add anything until the cake is fully colonized and is ready for fruiting.
