A quick suggestion re: moisture
    #2897778 - 07/16/04 07:00 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Hi!

I tried to find an appropriate topic to add this to, since it seemed too short to bother making a fresh topic about, but didn't find anything very relevant. Maybe I should've looked harder, but I'm tired... :sleep:

Anyway, have you seen those water storing gel granules that you can get in gardening shops? You're supposed to add them to soil, they hold moisture and prevent the soil from drying out too much.
I haven't got round to testing them yet in order to see how much water they can hold, but I reckon it must be 50 times their weight. They're made from a non-soluble synthetic polymer, so should be non-nutritive or whatever the word is (I mean, not eaten by shrooms), and since they don't dissolve they shouldn't interfere with the shroom's growth in any way, but they should really help to provide a constant high moisture level in cakes etc.
I use them all the time in my soils, for salvia etc, but have never grown shrooms. And the spores that I am getting soon are for sclerotia, so I shouldn't have moisture problems to deal with, so I am not in a position to try them out...

Anyone tried it? Anyone want to try it? Is it a stupid idea?

Anyway, happy growing ya'll...

:mushroom2: :heartpump:

:bye:
