What do you do with your shrooms?
    #3758675 - 02/09/05 10:57 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Besides for eating them and giving them away to friends, what do you guys who grow bulk do with all the extra shrooms. A 10 oz dry flush would last me and friends a few months, so how many people here have a freezer full of shrooms? I assume after a few bulk grows, you'd have to either stop growing, scale down, or throw away the fruits of your labor. I'm sure nobody here sells shrooms.

I ask these questions because I had an idea of putting an 8 inch layer of straw in my closet, then casing with verm/coir. I figure 60 square feet should yield around 60 ounces dry at the least. This plan is gonna be a few months away, so I'll have time to save the $1000 or so I figure it'll cost me. I plan on doing the ultimate bulk grow, that can never be beaten. :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2:


--------------------
And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk ...four times already this year and I used to be over by the window and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and its not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire.

I trade shrooms for weed, and sometimes other various drugs.

My closet measures 7' x 9'. I had a dream of laying in a field of shrooms and making a shroom angel. I think this grow log will be the greatest ever completed. I already have it almost all figured out.

i use specimens for bio-chemical analysis, and run test trials on how it effects different test subjects (mainly rats, rabbits, dogs etc...) short term and long term effects and side effects. hoping to get clearance to conduct tests on human subjects. anyone want to be my guinea pig?  :smile:

You're going to need wires so you can hang from the cieling mission impossible style so as to pick the shrooms and remove contamed portions without walking on your shit. :tongue:

Grown a few times before. Current situation prevents me from growing. I did some cakes myself, and set up a bulk grow for a friend. I'm not exactly a noob, but I Do lack experience. I'm not going to just jump right in to the 60 square foot project, I need a good bit more experience dealing with spawn.

do commercial growers even utilize that much space per fruiting 'zone/container'?

I wouldn't recommend doing this. If you want to do something like this isolate maybe 6 feet to a rubbermaid and just use 10 rubbermaids. That way if you get contams in one it won't ruin your entire grow.

I thought about that. I'll probably do that once, then move on to my idea. I just can't wait for the picture of me laying in a field of shrooms in my closet.

Commercial growers (white button, not psilocybe) use a hell of a lot larger

http://www.mycosupply.com/growrooms/

As for bulk psilocybe growers, yes they use more than 60 square feet as well, that isn't that large (for massive bulk growers anyway).

First of all, I would not use an entire closet as a huge casing, for one, it is made of porous bacteria contiaining walls, ceiling, and carpet. Will be hard as hell to keep humidity up. You can't walk on the shit, need to be able to see every part of the grow to catch contams.

60 square feet or properly maintained grow space can produce between 12 and 30 pounds of mushrooms. To produce 60 ounces of mushrooms you only need between 8 and 20 square ft. You could also achieve this with 240 cakes, or about 120 cakes cased. You could just do the pftek for 240 cakes and birth them in 10 PMPs.
