What can I add to Shit?
    #382362 - 08/30/01 07:49 PM (17 years, 7 months ago)

Alright.. the project..

since mushrooms grow outside fine where I live, I figure I want to grow them outside. heh.. anyway.. this is what I'm thinking..

I'm going to get my mycelia started on rye grains, using McMans master-grain-spawn tek... Aiming to get @ 5 qts + colonized grain...

Then I'm going to get together a whole bunch of shit.. cowshit & horseshit & all of that.. @ 100 lbs.. then I'm gunna pasturise it, mix it w/ some other ingredients, put it in an isolated box outside & cover w/ a tarp for @ 1 month to keep real moist & warm in order for further colonization.. then i'll pull it off to pin.

So what I'm worried about is ingredients.. what can I add to my shit to enhance & prolong the nutrients my boys needa munch on? Wood-Chips? worms? gerber baby food?

Who knows..

Since your useing so much manure, then try my friends compost tek.
Nitrogen source:
70 pounds of horse manure
50 pounds of chicken manure
50 pounds of cow manure
20 pounds of blood meal
Carbohydrate source:
4 bales of wheatstraw
20 pounds of rice straw
50 pounds of cottonseed meal
Blending and curing items:
80 pounds of gypsum(essential for compost, prevents it from becoming greasy, provides Ca++ ions, a mineral essential to mushroom growth)
20 pounds of Superphosphate(promotes vigorous mycelial growth, but dont use to much it will turn the compost acidic to soon)
20 pounds of sulfate of potash( calcium carbonate)
1 gallon of compost activators.
Directions for use:
Soak the wheat straw for about a week, then drain out water and place in a large dark colored bin. Mix in all other ingrediants evenly and use water as needed to keep it moist not soaked. At about three days the temperature inside the compost will reach very high temps. Thats good, everything is working right. when the temperature begins to fall, turn the pile and mix it up again( around 6 days) do this until the pile turns a rich blackish brown color. Very airy with a lot of texture. My friend let heres cure for 3 months. But This time can be shortened. Depends on how much you have and how you want it cured. Now for the descrete people, here is a mini tek: 5 pounds chicken manure,(reason for chicken is its higher in nitrogen and phosphorous than horse and cow) halfbale of soaked wheatstraw(essential), 1pound bloodmeal, 2 pounds of cottonseed meal. 1 cup of superphosphate, 1 pound of potash, 3 pounds of gypsum,1 8 oz bag of activators.
Both of the above recipies can be altered very much in amounts. You just have to experiment. And remember to check your ph regularly. Try to keep it at around 7-8. This can be done by purchasing a small ph test kit at a pet store .
