Hericium Erinaceus on speckled alder
    #3212392 - 10/04/04 02:58 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I started these Hericium Erinaceus on July 29th. The substrate is a mixture of speckled alder wood chips and aspen "pet bedding" shavings. Speckled alder is the only alder that grows around here. It only grows in the marshy areas where it forms thick cluster of about 30 8-10 foot tall "trees" that are only 2- inches in diameter. This made the chips really tiny. They finished colonizing in about 2-3 weeks. Once they finished they started climbing up the side which was not necessarily up because the bag was folded over. I've been without an indoor fruiting chamber, so I just kind of let them sit on the shelf. This is the first bag of seven that made through the filter patch. It has been outside the patch for about a week and a half. I noticed one of the other bags just started to poke through today. I made some really really dank mushroom risotto with some oyster mushrooms me and a friend found.




Its a medium size mycobag for size reference.

Crap, I should have rotated the image. I'll fix it in 24 hours because I mostly filled the space allotment.

It looks funny how it grows through the filter patch.
Since I have not very much experience with growing in bags I wonder why the bags are usually only filled one third ?
When I used these kind of bags once I have filled them about 2 thirds, but I am not sure it that is the way you are supposed to do it.

I think they are generally only filled 1/3 - 1/2 full to allow plenty of air inside the bag.


Excellent Hericium open air fruiting. It appears I have something to look forward to...  :thumbup: :thumbup:

The reason being that they are only filled about half way is do to the fact that when you inoculate them You need to shake them.. and if you are doing a lot of bags it is much easier to leave space for shaking the spawn thuroly.

And I always wondered why they are wasting so much space in the bag  :crazy:
