Cup TEK
    #3141756 - 09/16/04 01:37 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Has anybody ever used this method to grow mushrooms. I wouldn't think it would work. Would all the mushrooms just be coming out of the top cake? Would it be better to use perlite or vermiculite as the bottom layer? Should I put the colonized cake in there just out of the jar, or should I crumble it up into marble size and layer over the bottom layer? Please help me with any advice you have or suggestions. I'm looking for the easiest way to grow mushrooms where I can keep it stealth in my room (still living with parents, I know it's a drag).

It just looks like a smaller version of the original PF tek to me, so I'd say it would work. However Im with george, and dont want to endorse 'stealth' growing from your parents.

dam les claypool is rad....... my $.02

Well recently my cakes have colonized (they fully colonized about 3 days ago and I have yet to put them in any terrarium...is that okay?) and I am going to try this TEK out, but I have some concerns. I will be putting an inch of moist verm on the bottom of the cup, then crumbling the cake up that is in the half pint jar and placing that over the vermiculite. After that I will be placing compost (is Patio Plus okay for the compost?) over the crumpled cakes and then placing a ziplock baggie over the top. If I just put the cup under my bed I am thinking it'll get contaminated. Where would I put the cup? I am thinking of putting the cup with the baggie over the top in a plastic tubberwear container that will sterile (spraying Lysol all over) and then placing it under my bed. Would this work? I also would like some advice on transferring the cakes into the cup. Does the area need to be sterile as when injecting the spores into the cakes? Thank you.

The area should be sterile at all phases, including injection of spores. I would use verm on the top as opposed to compost. You want non nutrious. Adding in coco coir or peat would be better (see the FAQ's on casing). It will quite possibly get contams in the environment your talking about. If you got a rubbermaid that fit under your bed you could fill it with wet perilite, put some holes in the side with polyfil and then just stick the cakes directly in there instead of messing with the cups too. Your not gonna get much from them cups..probably 1-2 dry grams per cup. More like an 1/8 if your lucky and keep good conditions but from the sounds of the poor conditions I'd only expect a gram per solo sized cup.

Well I'm pretty sure I fucked up because I didn't read this post until afterwards. This is what I did:
Sprayed lysol everywhere and washed hands
Put half inch of moist verm on the bottom of the cup
Crumpled up the mycelium covered cakes into the cup
Put some of the compost over the cakes
Put some more crumpled cakes over the compost and then added more compost over the cakes again
Put about half inch of some moist verm on top
Placed baggie over the top and put the cup in a glass vase
Placed vase in closet

I am pretty much expecting nothing, or atleast contams.

You can also cut a 2 liter bottle near the bottom and put your cake in and tape it back up. And do whats nescessary for humidity etc. Works pertty good.
