Under a porch?
    #2636223 - 05/04/04 10:24 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Afoaf is interested in starting an outdoor bed, but wants it to be kinda hidden from view. She has been looking for good locations to grow and has made the preliminary decision to grow under her back deck.

The deck is about 2.5 feet off the ground and each plank is spaced by about .25 inches. This gives plenty of light and rain for the mushrooms to grow, but she is worried about the conditions under the deck.

The deck is probably at least 20 years old, maybe up to 30 years. The ground under it appears to be mostly black dirt, decomposing for those 20 years. Short grass does grow in some places underneath, but for the most part it is dead ground.

The question is, what are the chances that this ground is contaminated/spent and will not be a good host for the outdoor bed? She plans on using Straw & Dung spawned with WBS or Popcorn. When the original amount of substrate is used up, will the mushrooms have a chance to spread into the natural habitat in order to come back year after year?

Thanks, PNutButta

they should grow on the dung/straw.

Let me remind you that the above text is completely false and has been typed to you by an escaped mental patient and shouldn't be taken seriously unless you yourself also have a mental condition. These kind of things need to be taken into consideration by those viewing these threads.
