Fruiting Bulk Substrate
    #3813629 - 02/21/05 10:55 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Ok, so I have this experiment going on at the moment.  I have a fruiting chamber with perlite on the bottom and a small trashcan with rye cased in 50/50+ mix (no perlite).  With the chamber I can put cased bread pans in or whatever.  My mushies fruited quicker in the chamber than the trash can most likely due to using perlite.  However the mushies in the trash have more distinctive characteristics.  I'm going to use rye, manure, and straw for 7 quarts.  I want to know which is the better idea.  To case the mixture on the bottom of a tub and fruit or to case the mixture in a container and place on top of perlite and fruit? :syringe: :mushroom2:

Case the mixture in a container and place on top of perlite to fruit.  There are many other methods of humidifying, too, if you are prejudice to perlite :grin:

In the end, my friend, we will all be together again.

i hear that bulk substrate will fruit just find when fruited in its container ( using a big sterilite might work), and just lots of misting is good enough for humidity. bulk usually gives off enough heat by itself so no need for an incubator either.
