First time outdoors, heard it's easier?
    #2876122 - 07/10/04 05:12 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I've read quite a lot of literature on cultivating mushrooms, but have only attempted to do so once indoors, and failed horribly. I know what I did wrong, learned from my experience and am prepared to give it another go. Myself and a friend are going in on some spore syringes, which should leave me with some extra cakes to practice with casing..but I was hoping to start an outdoor patch of some cubensis. Now this is where your various opinions are going to help me.. Which strain of cubensis would be good for a beginner outdoors?
Thanks!

rye grain jars instead of PF cakes?

Is that just straight organic rye grain with water pc'ed in half pint jars?


Also I'm wondering about the ourdoor use of corncorb mush.

Something like, digging a small patch about 8 inches deep, filling the bottom with straw, mixing some corn slurry ontop of the straw, throwing a few crumbled cakes ontop and mixing a straw/dung mix atop that. Meh..just a passing thought.

This time I'm going to keep it simple, but I am curious how good corncob mush would work outdoors.

Outdoor beds are "the whip" for this newbie I know. Your little babies will just keep popping up. I have heard that it is pretty cool.

Oh yeah, and don't bury them two deep, and use lots of straw vs using too much manure. I think manure takes a bit longer and if you bury them deep you have to wait.

I've done both BRF and Grains a few times. I dont see how you can say that the Grain process is easier. In my opinion, it's more work involved, and takes more time to prepare. Also, the water content has to be just right, or a plethora of problems can arise.

I even had some quart jars of Popcorn, that had been PC'ed. Never got around to using them, and just had them sitting in the closet.
Checked on them the other day, and 5 of 6 had grown mold. Baffles me, being that I had soaked for 24 hours, simmered, and pc'd. The jars were never opened, and they still molded.

damn dude, I just splooged myself looking over those pics on your thread.  :smirk:

I guess now it's just time to decide what strain to use.. this seems a lot less expensive and more enjoyable then having to worry about damn molds all the time indoors.

I guess this brings me to my next question, and that is: Would this work as well with Pans/Copes ?

I have about 7 quarts of Popcorn (just the plain old cheap yellow stuff) and I am wondering can I just fruit a jar that is colonized like BRF VERM cake? Is this possible? Has anyone tried this before?
