outdoor cultivation idea
    #3600008 - 01/08/05 08:33 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I actually prefer to hunt for my mushrooms as opposed to growing them.  I had this idea to get some fresh manure or compost, maybe mix in some straw or grain, mix up a spore syringe, pick a nice shaded area, and inoculate the compost mixture with the syringe instead of using substrate cakes.  I'm not worried about getting an amazing yield, just a minimalistic approach with the hopes of getting a few extra mushrooms. Of course, a large yield wouldn't be frowned opon either :wink: Would this be a complete failure? Or does anyone have any suggestions as how to improve on this idea? I'm not in the best monetary situation, so please remember that I'm attempting to be minimalistic and economical.  Thanks for any suggestions.

The short answer: if you tried to inoculate a compost or substrate pile outdoors it will almost certainly fail. There's a chance it won't, but not a very good one.

A much, much better plan would be to make some spawn (grain/corn/rye), inoculate and colonize that, then break it up and spread it in between layers of manure/compost/straw. That way, each bit of broken-up spawn acts as an inoculation point for the bulk substrate (man/comp/straw), plus it has the benefit of already being fully developed mycelium, ergo it won't contaminate as easily, especially outdoors. Do a search for Moe's Outdoor Tek, or Flower Pot Tek (very similar, just not in the ground!).

Outdoor teks work WONDERS, if the temperature is right and the conditions are managable (wet/dry enough.)

Hope that helped! Good luck, and feel free to PM me if you have any other questions.

[EDIT]: A four-pack of quart jars can't cost more than $4, and rye costs next to nothing. For a cheap and easy method, make four quart jars (only uses about one syringe-worth), that should be plenty of spawn for an average sized hole that'll fruit several times.
