About to start growing. Need inputs
    #2930077 - 07/26/04 10:32 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hello. I am about to start growing p. cubensis. I have done this once using the pf tek a year ago. This is my plan this time and I am wondering if it will work ok.

Starting culture on grain, It will most likely be bird seeds

Spawning grain into straw balls. I was thinking about pasteurizing wheat straw, then throw the grain with the straw into balls. Then put the straw in plastic bags. Than just cut the straw ball plastic here and there so the mushrooms can grow. I assume there will be growing mushroom between the plastic and straw as well.
If this is a ok idea so far;
Should I incubate the balls before I cut the plastic up maybe? so it can hold moist better. Will I have to mist the straw often?

Is there anything that is smart to add together with the straw?

I assume I don't need any terratorium of any sort, the plastic will prevent it from dry out some, correct? I can put them up indoor in a room with around 50-60% humidity?

Any other tips or suggestions?

i would suggest buying some mycobags for this... and i think you should let your block colonize completely before punching or cutting anything, as to ward off any contaminants that may cause you trouble and wreck your entire deal... and instead of fruiting from the bag it may be wise to take out ur block and fruit it like a regular cake in a terrarium... you look new, welcome to the shroomery. good luck on your future mushroom hunts and cultivations.
