Why only a few shrooms then nothing?
    #3138488 - 09/15/04 01:45 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Every time I take my used PF cakes and recycle them by mixing them in a cake pan with cow manure and straw I only get 5 or 6 shrooms? The manure is covered in mycellum and I cased with vermiculite on top.

Poor water content of manure? Poor fruiting conditions?

No just breaking them up into the manure.

They could be dehydrated and soaking up water from the manure. Could make a bad condition worse. Shrooms are 90% water and need lots of it...

That's why I would suggest dunking. If they're already spent, you might as well try to juice em up a bit before you go for another flush.

Hmm I'm not sure...maybe some more experts on manure will get in here..if not you may want to post in advanced and put "manure" in the topic.

is it aged/composted or fresh manure? I would reccomend spawning onto a mix of at least 50% straw mised with manure.

the manure is adding nutrients to the mix, but you're going to need to dunk the cakes to add moisture as well.

Not sure if its aged? I bought the bag of manure at Home Depot. And yes I mixed it 50/50 with straw.
