need some help
    #2805855 - 06/18/04 03:53 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

This is gonna be the stupidest post i ever made , but here it goes ...

Here it is imposiblle to find vermiculite , and thats a preety big problem in my shroom cultivation projects ...
I would realy need some advices and help , what and how should i do without this important ingridient ...

I made a spore syringe and inoculated a honey tek jar to get some mycelium to colonize some more jars later ... In meanwhile , when im waiting i'm trying to find alternate methods .

I had bad experience with birdseed , very slow colonization . Then i tried popcorn , but 50% of my jars got contaminated and the other 50% were fucked when i spawned to straw ... I just don't have luck with growing them ...

Can you give me some advices what to do ... I also need some info about alternate casing methods ( that dont involve spawning to straw ... )

Please help people ...

ps. try not to laugh when you read my post

Try peat moss (with lime) and/or coir. There's no reason you need vermiculite.
