Outdoor furious mycelium growth

Log in to view attachment

Last week i halted my first try, i did a birdseed+oister shell+dextrinated wheat bran substrate wich was spawn with mycelium+honeywater. The problem was i failled to get the correct water ratio and the pint jar had too much water. I tried draining the water with no significant results, it was a swamp inside i must say, it was doomed. Well i had this crazy idea to go outdoor growing with the jar, i did know my chances would be little because the jar had no signs of colonization (only one week had pass) and i really don't know if i can succeed. Back to the point, i made a hole in the grownd (1 feet * 1/2 feet * 2 inches deep), the bottom was covered with a thin vermiculite layer, i opened the jar and droped all the substrate over that layer, then i cover the substrate with one more thin vermiculite layer and finnished with some poting soil over that final vermiculite layer, I then took a small box wich was placed over it so i could mist, protect the possible mycelium and to emulate a good microecosistem holding heat and moisture. I has been a week since i did all this and i've got this:

What do you think i could do now ?

i did something similar to what you did.. i was experimenting with honeywater for the hell of it... i dropped a little piece of my brf cake in honeywater and incubated for a few days.. i saw quite a bit of thin wispy white stuff in the jar so i took it outside and poured it into the middle of my compost heap.. now theres a bunch of mycelia growing throughout... i think i should yield quite a few mushrooms from my compost heap.. its a triangle... 6 ft sides... around 4 ft deep... and still around 3 feet above ground... i dunno what the volume for that it.. but im expecting a hell of a lot of shrooms, i live in florida so it should do it all naturally without me having to do anything... this is the way i think ill go from now on if it works...

Keep Trippin' and Blazin'

I do think the same way, if this little "accident" works i'll surelly go outddor growing, i can see allready my lawn full of shrooms, it's very easy replicating all this procedure and ..... hey it's summer over here, so let's gain from it!!!

Cheers,

Domestic ? It's P. Cubensis Colombian strain, i would never think the mycelium would form so quick, i mean the jar wasn't even showing signs of colonization and mycelium grew in 5 days, yeah 5 days!!!!
My doubt is, should i keep the box above to keep moisture and heat or should i let it take some fresh air to start pinning?

Cheers,
MAIA

I'm assuming the box isn't air tight any way so it should be receiving air as it is.  It won't pin until the outdoor climate is right, until then it will continue to colonize.  I would keep the box on for now or cover with some soil and plant some grass in it to help shelter the mycelium from heat/direct sunlight and the box would help to keep most of the critters for digging for your grain.  You know I might try this myself.

4 out of 5 inmates agree.  The FSR is better than being raped by your overweight roomate!;)

No, the box isn't air tight. I open the box once a day and mist upwards to the inside of the box.

Are you sure that mycelium isn't cobweb mold?
