1 week later




during that week




one day later




later on that evening/morning:




This casing was self contained in a rotiserie chicken container. The container itself has 2 holes on the top of the "hood". On the opposite side of the holes (the right side) i have a tube that is hooked up to an aquarium pump and a bubbler:



The tube is hooked up to an air stone which is hooked up to the air pump. The blue valve is where the outlet tube comes out of and into the lid.

cost: (all that i acutaly would have to buy if i were to grow mushrooms)

container- bought it with the chicken ;)
air pump- (really small) $5
air stone- $.99
4' tubing- $1

Method:

1/2 pt jars were made according to this tek

They were then covered with a 1/2 inch of manure.

The whole thing is It's left on 24/7. No fanning no misting, no NOTHING.:)


good luck and peace

let me be the first to say, sweet!

You approach the turnstiles and know that when you get there you have to give the man two
dollars or he won't let you inside but when you get there everything goes wrong.

Thanks guy's !

For those taking notes, the variety is PR from the FSR. The 1st flush yeilded a measly 50g. But, most of the fruits were up to 8'' long. Also, IMHO, and those who have tried puertos please let me know if you have experienced this also, I found that the taste of the fruits was "milder" or "sweeter" than other varieties.

Peace.

again sorry for sounding like an idiot here...but you have two tubes right? one going from the pump to the air stone..and one going from the blue valve which is sealed air tight against the lid of the jar, and that tube runs into the growing chamber? is that correct? and did you lay the crumbled cakes directly on to the plastic?

Nice post and like the man said "you cant argue with success". One question: are the PR's a small strain? I couldnt help but get the idea that they were maybe "confined" in the small container you used?

I dont know, maybe their confined. But they seem to grow nicely anyway. I don't think it decreased the yeald of the 1st flush if that's what your getting at.

Did you use straight manure...? wet and squeeze......or do you have verm mixed in... seems straight manure would turn to mud and not be very airy...do`nt get me wrong.. great casing man. just wondered about that

Hey thanks McMan ; ). To tell you the truth,that round dome, made you one of the people that popped into my mind when i stumbled on this. Kudos.

#9 ... Yes straight manure , wet and squeeze. If it's at the right moisture consistency it should just crumble. I lay down a 1/2 inch layer on top.

By the way, don't know if this could actualy be called a casing. If i remember correctly casing materials are supposed to be non-nutritious. So maybe it's like a fortified casing or something. lol.. any hoo , have fun it's easy to build and watch !!

No , i don't think they would have grown any fatter. The air exchange, IMHO was minimal at best so that might be why they looked like that (plus they were all curiously leaning towards the air outlet tube ;) ). But you have to remember that i was using a reeeealy small air pump(i think it's the smallest availible). Also, the substrate was pretty thin, 1.5 inches. Most of the fruits were 6-8'' long so i wasn't too dissapointed. I look at it like this, you've seen MM's post on his puertos right? Well, considering the size of the terrarium and the ammount of substrate i think the growth is normal if not great.

If your talking about shape. Well, i guess i'm going to have to go back to MM's post. Seems the shape is identical : long , thin stems. I've heard of some people growing out short stubby PR's but i haven't experienced this yet.

So, i guess my answer would be no. ; )

Nope havent seen his post but I'll check it out and I agree with you about the substrate layer, that probably had as much to do with it as your pump, probably more IMHO..lol
I asked cause thats how my shrooms come out and Im trying to get away from that and grow em alittle thicker.
Thanks for your patience...

The whole thing was in a cubbard. Not much light to speak of. Other than the daily "peek" i took. I guess it was just regular 'ol room light or the sun during the day. ; ).
