outdoor question..
    #2783142 - 06/10/04 10:57 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Howdy all,
So as my bags are almos tfully colonized and then I shall add them to my outdoor set up. I was wondering if anyone had any input on planting some type of grass...rye grass? wheat? in the patch, creating a perfect environment for fruiting. anyone try it? any specific grass or plant?

I've seen better results by placing them under a bush or another shady area, covering them with leaves and checking up on them/watering as needed... but it also depends on the type you are growing, around here Weileii are happy in grass but its generaly from the thatch and mulched dead grasses that it gets nutes...

Moe's tek

(regular cubies: 60-100 degs works well)

Strength: better get ready to some muscle work.

Water: a hose or someway to get the freakin water to the outdoor patch

Manure: any kind will do. I get the cheap bag from walmart. Regular manure, nothing fancy if you can get it fresh.. yaay.

Hay.. soaked for 24hours: regular HAY. Nothing fancy, nothing special. Any kind of hay. Wheat, grass, whatever.. freaking HAY


A shady spot... near a tree or where there is ....SHADE. nothing special if light gets to it part of the day.. it's ok.

A shovel for digging

A rake for raking

A rubermaid tub or a trashcan to soak the hay in.

A a brick to put on top of the hay when you soak it.. (duh, hay floats)

Some colonized cakes( fresh ones works best...spent one can be used and should never be put in the trash). Substrate doesnt matter.. cakes are damn cakes! this will be the spawn for the patch.


1. dig a hole about 6 inches deep. It can be as wide as you want if you have a shitload of cakes to bury or just want a big patch.

2. if you have MORE THAN ONE CAKE crumble one and toss in the newly dug hole. If you have one cake, break it in half and crumble a half in the hole. (remember, the MORE spawn the BETTER have more than one cake ).

3. Take some of the soaked hay right from the soaking container and cover the crumbled cakes. Pack it in there..

4. Take the manure and make a layer over the hay. cover it all and not too deep about an inch.

5. Place some more hay on the dookie you just laid down about an inch.

6. Place cakes on the hay you just laid. This is the important step. For fast fruits, it's good to have a shitload of spawn near the surface of the earth so that it can just "pickup where it left off" and start consuming the new nutrients and fruit.

7. Place hay on the cakes... not too much! dont drown the cakes in hay in this step. Get the cakes covered and let some of the cakes show thru the hay.

8. Do a dookie, hay and earth mix on the ground. The ratio? Not too much shit and not too much dirt. The hay doesn't matter, just mix it.. Use the shoveled dirt and mix all 3 up reeeeel guuuud.

9. Rake the mixture over the hay you just laid. Don't cover more than 2 inches it's okay if the patch bulges above the ground.

10. cover with a thin layer of hay and water but don't drown it unless you live in arizona.

I chated with Joshua the other day about outdoors. The meathod he found works best is first lay down weed barrier cloth then pearlite then your straw/manure, case with coir (i mix in manure but i dint ask) and then put a 1/4/-1/2" layer of wet spahgnum peat moss on top of that. The spahgnum moss is real airy so it allows dim light to get though to trigger pins and it later protects the pins from drying out, by time the shrooms clear the spaghgnum there on ther final stretch and can handle the conditions.
