Outdoor Cultivation Idea
    #3918528 - 03/14/05 11:55 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Lets assume you colonize some grain jars and put them into several cubic feet of bulk substrate, dung/straw or maybe woodchips.

In a shaded/wooded outdoor area you pile up normal ground waste, leaves, twigs, grass clippings, etc. Add some dung and maybe straw and worm castings. Once the bulk is fully colonized could spawn into into the outdoor patch by just spreading it on top, adding some grass seed, and tilling everything under the ground?

Should provide a nice amount of substrate for the myc to colonize and the grass seed should help it grow up pretty fast with grass. That way it wouldn't exactly look like a shroom bed until the couple of days it fruits.

Brother, i would just either make that bulk substrate, and then bury it very shallow in the ground (not more than 1 inch, but that just my way) and then letting it go. OR my favorite method, and easiest, since chances of contams are almost taken out of the equation, Is to dig a hole, A BIG ONE lol.... Then mix, dung, straw, and really any other proper substrate ingredients into it, water well, then cover with a thin layer of potting soil, and grass seed if you are going stealth, And water again. By doing this, and allowing the substrate to actually colonize outside, like i said, you could almost guarantee that it will colonize contam free. Any way you go about doing it, good luck brother, and I KNOW you will love outdoor cultivation... Its a beautiful thing. Peace

I was thinking like a 10x10 ft patch or more. The bulk sub you are adding would only be about 10% of the actually substrate volume. The tilling avoids having to dig a hole, avoids having to haul potting soil there, and mixes everything nicely. Also keeps is pretty shallow.
