PLEASE-Help a newbie out!
    #377958 - 08/24/01 06:52 PM (15 years, 8 months ago)

I've read up on so much information about cultivation of our little friends and i have many of the supplies i need. I have heard so many variations regarding substrate and casing. I just would like to hear from some of you guys.

1. What is the best substrate mix to use?
2. What is the best casing technique (like did you put wet perlite at the bottom and then crumble the cake and soil on the top)?
3. What is the best way to innoculate a jar?
4. Can you use other containers besides a mason jar?

I appreciate your help and guidance.
Thanx

Dan the Mushroom Man

1. Brown Rice Flour and Vermiculite aka PF Tek
2. Get into casings after you have successfully grown cakes.
3. Flame sterlize syringe and inject jar using the oven tek for added sterilization.
4. Anything that is 1/2pint capacty and is wide-mouthed.

Thanks for you help! I always wondered what the PF tek meant.

1. the Verm. : does it have to be the fine powder or will coarse do?

i read somewhere that they did but no one seemed to be able to find it so they bought the coarse and ground it up. What did you do?

i use just regular verm. that you get at the store with brf...sterilize it in a pot on med for about 1/2 hour...wait for it to cool down...then innoculate the jars
