Wow!
I found that harvest is about 2 weeks from spawning. Clearly they keep on trucking!

Don't stress trying to find the exact Glad mini-rounds. I started out with the no-pour agar method using whatever appropriately small PP5 and glass containers I could find at the warehouse/supermarket, and they worked well enough. I've since moved on to using a media bottle and cheap pp5 polysterene petri dishes + parafilm.

Are they pp5? At that price they’ll shirley be polystyrene?

Would love to find pp5 petri. Amazon won’t ship them here. . .

Whoops – yep, I meant polystyrene instead of PP5. Thanks for pointing that out Bobbit :thumbup:

So I had a few felt filters fail. . . Turns out it was probably poor workmanship on the silicon. . .

Devised another 2 tier approach, i.e. 2 layers. . .

Felt from spotlight. . . 40mm and 50mm squared.


Cut into pairs. . .


Siliconed first layer. . .


Siliconed second layer. . . Over top. . .


And the band siliconed in place. . .


Maybe it's time to buy SFD's . . . :shrug:

I bought these PFTE discs recently. I've yet to see how well they work because I tried using filter patch bags for my last batches. Last night for the first time I attempted doing G2G and grain to fruiting block transfers of coral tooth myc using only spawn bags in a 90 litre SAB. It was so cramped and fiddly I'm sure some will fail. Any tips for noccing spawn bags in SABs?

The ones I tried (shiitake) failed to green mould. . . Got a little fruit, then green half way through the flush. . .

I’m not using the bags I have until I can afford a flow hood. . . Unless someone awesome :awesome: drops in with good info. . . My SAB is only 90L, hard to not touch the edges. . .

I bought SFD’s from aussiemushroomsupplies more expensive though. . .didn’t check ebay (amazon slut me). . . Oh well at least I have some on their way. . .

Where did you get youe coral tooth? Wild clone or someone sharing?

I bought the coral tooth grain spawn from Sporeshift, based in Ohoka. I've also previously bought imported oyster and shiitake from them. The oyster was no problem because I could just mix the grain into pasteurised straw in buckets.

I'm holding back on the shiitake though until I can figure out a better way to expand it to fruiting blocks using a SAB. Like you I have to wait until I can afford to build a flow cabinet.  :money:

Hi fellow Kiwi's, I've been looking around the forum and found some great guides for cultivating/growing, I'd like to give some indoor strains of mushrooms a try to get the hang of it.

Was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a type that's beginner friendly and accessible in New Zealand, such as oyster/shiitake/field mushrooms?

There are quite a few spawn suppliers in NZ if you want to try growing without buying all the bits. . .

There are kits available from mitre10.

I started by cloning store bought shiitake and oyster. You need agar to do that, and an SAB.

I'd recommend oyster as they are fast, easy and really tasty. Shiitake are a pain in the arse till you get your technique down.

I'd want to start from scratch I think and go with agar/SAB to get used to the process, it seems like the most widely accepted best practice and looks like a lot of fun.

Now that I think about it I don't think I've ever seen oysters being sold, shall have a look around and see what's available.

When you go to a typical 'asian supermarket' to get your agar (ask for ar-gah ar-gah), look in the vege isles, you should find both oyster and shiitake.

I got mine from farro fresh in mushroom season. . . Organic nz grown on nz wood are faaarkin expensive. . .

Start with agar and an SAB. You really wont regret it!

This is last year's thread for active mushrooms, and where/when they are collected.

There will be a new thread this year for you to peruse once the season starts. . .

"OAK AND SPORE CAUGHT SELLING ILLEGAL MUSHROOMS"  An edible but what a muppet.

The guy from NZ cultures (who wrote the article) is also an egg.

I'd love to grow pleurotus ostreatus, yet the one specific approved variety seems impossible to locate. . .

This thread happens to be about mudrooms that aren't legal in New Zealand. . . Imagine getting pinged for both class A and importing an illegal organism. . . Ouch
