a few questions..
    #3194548 - 09/29/04 06:17 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

A friend and I went out looking for shrooms and didn?t find any, so we decided to bring home cow and horse shit,

We put it in an aquarium, with soil..

We have sterile water in a spray bottle that we spray a mist over the poo with.

And now there seems to be mycelium growing on the dung, there are few whitish/beige spots, and white specs..

Does this sound like mycelium or mold?

And would it be better to keep them in a totally dark area, or keep light on them (and if light is better what kind? Fluorescent, etc)

Thanks, dave.

did you steralize the dung at all? it's most likely mould, you would be very vry lucky if you got something growing in there, steralize the dung, cook up some cakes then make a bulk grow with it!

Hahahahaha thats cool

Look we didn't get any shrooms.. (a feeling I know well enough)
But we brought back THIS! *slowclapping*

Not being mean, but I did just laugh my tits off, thanks :smile:

PS. I hope it does grow into shrooms just so I look a dick.

Most of us like to throw the chances of mushrooms growing in our favor by innoculating our substrate, grain to grain transfers, agar, etc, but I'm sure if you went and picked up a couple hundred cow pies and separated them so they wouldn't get contamed from each other, you'd probably get a mushroom or two.

You might want to look into some of the teks on growing mushrooms.  You have the substrate right now, but keeping shit wet isn't going to accomplish much IMO.  Check out the PF-Tek for growing mushrooms and follow it to a T, all the while reading other teks and gathering ideas to try out on your second+ grow(s).

Note that mushroom growing is illegal in some parts of the world, and it could violate laws in your area and should be checked before you begin growing.  I don't condone illegal activity or wish to sway your decision to grow them either way.

That's just my advice as a novice grower though. :smile:

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
