Various Questions
    #2823229 - 06/24/04 06:43 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hi, I have some question so I figured I put them in one post;

    1.Does jars in incubator need air exchange?

    2. If you dont have spawnbags what can be used instead? glass jars? how important is air exchange here? Do I need holes in the lid if I run a spawn in a big jar?

    3. Can I make a outdoor bed only by using hay? I can`t get hold of manure. Anything else I can mix with the hay? verm, grains or something perhaps

    4. I am buying 2 grow bags of psilocybe azurenscens and cyanescens. They come with 20 litre woodchips, spawnbags and so on. It should be a simply mix and put in garden thing. I was thinking how can I make the beds bigger, expand them. Should I take woodchips with mycelium from the bed and into a spawn bag with more woodchips? does this need to be done indoors? And does the woodchip used in spawn need to be sterilized?

    5. How is Psilocybe Arcana grown?

    6, Are the ways of growing Pan. Cambodigensis, Pan. Cyan and Pan. Tropicalis the same? Do they like same temperatures and so on so I can put all three in same grow chamber?

1. Yes, usually a poly-fill or Tyvek filter is recommended. Some simply use a small hole in the lid, but that is risky IMO.

2. Glass jars are my preferred method of spawn generation. The bigger the jar, the more important gas exchange comes.

3. Hay will work fine if its all you have.

4. Soak more woodchips well, then mix with the colonized bags. Water regularly.

5. ??? Got me...

6. I am unsure about the exact growth parameters of 2 of those, so I cant help there either...

thanks :smile: I understand that the woodlovers needs cold temp to fruit but the grow bag says it comes within a few weeks without mentioning temps at all. I also read that it can survive cold winters wich is good. But how does cubensis survive a 3 month cold winter? 

Another thing I was wondering about. In september liberty caps will grow around here. When I picked last year I was thinking, there must be a way to help nature spread liberty caps. I understand its hard to grow indoors but what about outdoors? Has anyone made outdoor beds with liberty caps? Or any suggestion to how I can go about spreading the mushrooms to new areas.

Probably it doesn't.
