Best Popcorn Preperation? Vermiculite & Popcorn???
    #2978052 - 08/08/04 01:15 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

What is the best way to prepare popcorn for use as a substrate. I've heard of adding vermiculite into the jar/bag to help even out the water levels, in my last 5 bags of popcorn, once I put them into incubation there was a large amount of condensation inside the bags, that I think led to their demise. Last time I soaked for 24 hours, boiled for an hour, rinsed, than drained until there were no more drips.

Any input would be beutiful. Fill my head with whats in your head please!  :turtle: :gd_icon: :wexican:

P.S. Last time my bags stayed completely free of growth for 3 weeks, than I innoculated and put in incubator and green meanies came at the same time as some beutiful mycelium. I think the bags had to much moisture, they were 5 qt bags each injected with 10ml of liquid mycelium. Should I change anything around?

i would say give straight popcorn a try. if you prep it like magash does rye it'll have plenty of water(just make sure it doesn't turn into goo).

I'd say since no growth came for 3 weeks until you innoculated that you then introded the contamination.
