Pleurotus Eryngii on Newspaper
    #2714503 - 05/22/04 01:20 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Some time ago I have tried out to grow some Pleurotus eryngii on newspaper.

The newspaper and cardboard was prepared via the "washing machine tek":

- Put some newspaper and cardboard in a pillow case - if it's too big tear it a little bit apart till it fits into the pillow case.
- Close the pillow case with a knot and put it into the washing machine
- You can pour some chlorine in the drawer of the washing machine for pasteurization
- Then let the washing machine do the whole program at 90 degrees Celsius ( rinsing, washing, rinsing and spinning )
- If the paper is still too wet after spinning you have to wring out the pillow case afterwards

After that procedure I have spawned the paper with grain spawn.
It took the substrate quite a while to colonize, but there were no contams.
The problem was that the eryngii did not fruit on the paper substrate which I think is because of lack of certain nutrients.
Therefore I buried the colonized paper in a shady place in the garden and after about a month after some rain the first fruits came out.
Here a two pics:

That's cool Arno.

It does seem one would need a nitrogen source.
Perhaps you could try adding 20-30-20 fertilzer to speed things along.

Speeker:
I got that idea when I was sitting on the toilet watching our      washing machine spinning  :grin:

AFungitobewith:
The ones I grew on sawdust also looked a bit different. I think they look like this because they grew outdoors - fresh air, light etc.

charlieXxXxX:
Using a fertilizer is a great idea! I hope it does not make the whole tek more vulnerable for contamination.

Very nice!  Edible growers who buy alot online or recieve much mail or get papers would do well to look into this further.  Feed yerself with yer trash man, nice one!

I shed our paper and feed it to worms now, they seem to love it mixed with garden trimmings.  the castings are used to mix 'millets blend' for potted edible herb sales. 

I am setting up to pasteurize in stainless 55 gallon drums from army surplus soon (nice hydraulic gear to be found as well, for greenhouse controls).  Ive got an itch to do some outdoor oysters and a 16' x 28' shadehouse, I guess they can room with hostas under the mister setup.....

I recieve on avg around 30+ boxes a week of varoius gear for various enterprises, plus am subscribed to 5 diff daily US papers.  What can I say, info junky........

I have been pissing in the wind, and burning substrate.......

:confused:

sheet!
