leaves in bulk tek
    #3279194 - 10/26/04 01:47 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Hey, using the same tek as many use with straw making layers of straw and crumble colonized pf style jars and bird seed jars either or. and then applying pressure to pack it down and letting it colonize and then casing and fruiting it, Well ive done this method before but im short on cash on supplies but here in kentucky we gotta alot of leaves. i was wondering if i could substitute the staw with mulched leaves and just prepare them as i do wit the straw, i place enough chopped straw in a pillow case and place it in a boiling pot around 170'-190' for about an hour and a half. has anyone done this? does it work and is it worth doing or a waste of spores. thanks for the help in advance, i appreciate it.

don't trust me on this but i believe leaves are too nutritious and may produce contams...but i'm not sure.  i just know that leaves contain lots of nitrogen and other chems that when they break down in the soil are used as fertilizer for growing plants.  wait for a better response before deciding anything though. :smile:

I recomend trying it with one or 2 cakes first and reporting back...
I have seen a mushroom in a cave that was growing from leaves and frequently
I see mycelium on leaves in the woods...

thanks for the replies guys, Ill just try it on maybe two pint size jars on a small casing, maybe using a flower pot or something instead of a big 5 gallon bucket as i do with the straw. what do you guys think on the moister content on the leaves you think they'll hold it well or should use a bottom layer of verm or perlite to help with it?

if you're pastuerizing they will hold moisture almost as well as straw
