what to do with jars of grain?
    #2988887 - 08/11/04 12:37 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

i got 12 jars of whole white millet innoculated. They are growing fine so far. They should be ready in about a week or less. What i was planning to do is take 75% straw and 25% manure and pastuerize it. Then i was going to put a layer of that down, a layer of the millet, another layer of straw/manure, more millet, then 1 last layer of straw/manure. What i thought is i could just fruit it like this, but from what i have been reading it sounds like i have to take that once its all done and then case it in coir/verm? If the mushrooms wont grow right from the straw/manure i am going to just case it straight away. If they will grow right from the straw/manure i will just go ahead as planned... if that doesnt really work, it may explain why my mushrooms outdoors havent grown too well....

- Got any magic mushrooms?
- No, but i got some drawf mush that will really blow your head off. Look at this, last time i took it, i was seeing fairies for 3 days!
- Nicey nice! Roll us a giant!

They should grow right from the straw manure mix. They would never grow in nature if they didn't.

They will grow from the straw/manure mixture, but you'll be shorting yourself on the number of flushes it will provide. Straw tends to dry out a lot, so it really benefits from a casing layer.

I simply use straight vermiculite (pasteurized) to do this, but others swear by coir/verm. I've gotten upwards of 4 flushes from casings that would only have given a single flush were they not cased.
