First the temperature of my house inside is 60-65 degrees 24 hours a day.Below is a list of objects i will be using so feel free to tell me all i need to know about growing mushrooms and tell me what all i need to do if something is a bad idea do i need to steralize it or really nething that i dont include that you think i should know.
Qty. 2 3 foot wide/3 foot long/10 inch depth sliding bins that slide out from underneath my bed. 12 4-5 inch deep/10 inch long/9 inch width Metal or Plastic treys ??which would be better?? Or should i use something else. 2 Hair blow dryers so i can keep humidity in the giant bins. ??good idea or bad?? If good How long should i keep them on for a day. I also have school. 2 Clear plastic wrap, wrapped ontop the two giant bins to trap the humidity inside. ??Good or bad?? ?? It is dark underneath my bed so do i need lighting to help the shrooms grow if so what should i use a small lamp light or what. Also how long should i have it on for a day. (Have School). 5 Syringes of spores. If i am buying 5 syringes of spores for how i will be growing what will be the best type of strains. You can pick the same one more than once or hell if there good as hell pick all 5 but here are the ones i am looking at and nothing else. B+ ... Blue Meanie ... Cambodian ... South American ... Z Strain ... Tasmanian ... Texas so please tell me what you think i should do. I will be buying from Spore-Syringe.com ?? How many bags of Spawn/Straw Substrate/Casing Soil Should i get for 12 bins as listed above. And what is The best kind to get i will be buying from www.mushbox.com with there straw substrate is 5 lbs a bag.
Well thats all i can think of what ill be using. For the questions, what all should i do before starting to grow my mushrooms. Before putting in the spawn and injecting and everything do i have to steralize nething what all do i have to do. Ive heard things about stuff being dirty wont work. And what is the stuff about mold what are things i can do to stop that also. How much spawn should i put in each of the small bins. Then after the spawn is in do i pack it tightly or just lightly put it in there. When i have my syringes how far do i stick the needle into the spawn and how much do i inject into each place and how far apart from each other. How much water do i put in each of the small bins do i put alot of water in there or none at all if i do. Do i put water in before or after i inject the spores if after how long after do i have to let the spores settle a little. Also i will have a spray bottle full of bottled spring water to spray in the bins. How much do i spray and is bottled spring water a bad idea. If it is what is a better thing to use. Is there nething else i need to put on them or nething i need to add etc.I will also have a small temp guage in each of the giant bins to check the temperature from time to time. what should i be keeping the temp at. (also have the hair dryers blowing warm/hot hair in there all day with plastic wrap over the top of the giant sliding bins. How much lighting should i use. just enough for light or actual high watt. That is all i can really think of if there is anything else that i should know or i have to do while maintaining them or any information at all that i will need to bring my little babies to life please let me know and you can email me at XxDjStrobexX@msn.com if you do not want to write back. So please if you see this respond cause i need all the help i can get. Thank yall hope to hear from you.
