Sea of shrooms?
    #2614327 - 04/29/04 02:48 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Has anyone tried this sea of shrooms method? I've never grown before and I really want to begin casing right away and this looks like a good place to start, any reasons not to follow this tek? Also, is deep scratching a good idea or not?

i read the tek and whoever made it didn't really get the high yields he talked about in the intro to the tek. but i am interested to see what this is all about.

I just used the tek to help me make a casing of a 1/2 pint PF tek cake. I used a coffee cup, put a 1/2 inch of jiffy down then crumbled the cake on top of that. A 1/2 inch of jiffy mix was added on top and the cup was placed in a terrarium with perlite. I'll let u know how it goes.

Seems like a lot of work/mess than simply spawning that grain to a large rubbermaid bin of straw/poo, then casing directly in the same container. And WAY less yields.

It also seems like it would be harder to hide, as you have several little containers rather than a single (or even multiple, stacked) rubbermaid tote. I mean, everyone I know has at least a half-dozen of the things in their storage rooms holding all their junk...

See here:


As a side note, you do not have to pasteurize the straw that way, if you can't get the water hot enough. You can use a large stock pot and stuff a pillowcase full of straw into it. It takes 3 periods of pasteurization (3 pots/pillowcases full of straw) to do enough straw for one rubbermaid, but damned if it's not worth it in returns.
