itinerary for first mushroom grow! excited!!
    #3365021 - 11/15/04 06:42 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

In the next couple of days I will be starting a stealth mushroom grow under my bed using the Ecuadorian P. Cubensis species.

I have all the necessary supplies and would like some input on what I plan to do throughout the growth.

I plan to mix up a substrate consisting of vermiculite, brf, and water, and add tinfoil to the top. On top of the tin foil I will put the lids. I will then put them into the pressure cooker (which I haven't bought yet, will a large pot on a stove work?)

Once they are steralized in the pressure cooker (or pot), I will inject .25cc in 4 holes each 1 inch away from the edge of the top of the jar. I will do this to all 10 of my jars.

Once they are inoculated, I plan to store them under my bed in a 7" tall tupperwear container to be incubated.

When they are completely colonized with Mycelium I then plan to take them from their Jars and plop them evenly spaced in the same tupperwear container that I used as an incubator.

I plan to spray the inside of container with water (not directly on the cakes) often enough to keep it moist. I also plan on exposing it to 12/12 indirect sunlight/darkness for mycelium formation, and 6/18 for fruiting.

If there are any comments PLEASE feel free to share! like I said this is my first grow, I may have planned something completely wrong and may not even know it. Thank you in advance

I don't think just misting will keep the fruiting chamber moist enough. Try putting some wet perlite on the bottom of the fruiting chamber. Other than that it sounds good.

I dont know that you neccesarily need any Light for Mycellum formation, i would be more concerned about Air exchange so jars don't slow way down or stall (like mine did) Light during fruiting is mainly to tell the mushrooms which way to grow. Hopefully someone else will chime in, i'm really no expert!

my main concern is that they will only have 6" (H) to grow. Any concerns here?

My fruiting chamber is shorter than yours and its fine. Even if they do grow big enough to touch the top it will not hurt them. Are you putting the light inside, cutting a hole in the top, or something else?

Build it into an old gutted computer tower case you'll have room for a light too to fruit them.Nobody will ever look in it.
and just keep it in the closet.
loads of ideas...has a power supply for led lights...pieltzer cooler on mother board...fan
Hmmmm....
block the holes so the light doesn't show or pretend it's wired up call it an independant server and tell everyone it has case lighting inside.

I didn't think I would need light? It is a clear tupperwear container (clear side, not lid) I thought I would just pull it out from underneath my bed every so often to give it sufficient light.

Correct me if Im wrong here because I too am new to growing, but arent you supossed to put the lids on first and then put the foil over top of that? Otherwise you don't get any air exchange right?

Yes your right punk. All the teks i've read you put on the lid, then tin foil. I think pulling it out will be sufficient, but since the lid isn't clear the mushrooms might grow funky, but they'll probaly be just as big.

I'm more of a gourmet mushroom guy...so light is important to me
nice fruitbodies mean nice dishes.
but if you're just out to get odd it doesn't matter but you will need some light to stimulate pinning I think.

See don't these look nice?
I didn't grow them and I'm sure they would taste just as good stunted and twisted but I'd have a hard time eating something mutant looking.

that's a whole stove they are covering by the way.Big Boletes.

Hmm tasty. Soo noodle salad, I have a tupperware that is like 5 inches tall, can I put my cakes in there after there finished colonizing? When the mushrooms reach the top, what will happen? Will the bend and curl?

Air exchange definately may be an issue, if you want to do this right read up on the teks and do them exactly, I see a few problems here.

Containers with clear sides are not good.

The under side of your bed is not a very sterile place.

Might want to work on an additional humidification technique. The teks here arent for show, they are for sucess.
