Need grow kit help
    #3998808 - 04/01/05 06:07 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Why can't someone harvest the mushrooms that have become dry or aborts and leave the others to grow? I still don't know the answer to this.

What happends after the harvest? I put the substrate back into it's terranium and spray IT? Should I put some moist vermiculite on the substrate?
Some of my mushrooms don't want to open their caps and let the spores fall. They become dark brown and dry themselves...

I have grow kits advice...

Don't use them, waste of money, try the PF-Tek, very easy, less of a hassle.

here's what you do:
1.get some lighter fluid
2.pour about 500ml of it into the teranium
3.light it on fire
4.throw it out your window
5.go to the ace hardware buy some vermiculite,perlite, some 1/2 pint jars, a pressure cooker, a heatpad, some plastic containers
6.go to 7-11 and get some brf
7.go home and read this http://archives.thenook.org/tek/pf_en.htm

that's it!
an optional step is to recoil in horror at the fact that your kit costs upwards of 60 dollars yet is just some substrate in a plastic container and a squirt bottle.

Instead of telling me what I already know could you please answer my questions?!?!
There is no place on earth I can buy jars that have got a wide mouth so that's why I don't use pf tek. And also, can a glass or mug or coke can or plastic box withstand a pressure cook???

Don't need to use exactly those jars indicated on the PF tek. I can't find those here in Brazil, they simply don't exist. All the jars I found here have an internal "shoulder". So I use drinking glasses, just find something that has a wide mouth and you're set!


I believe that one of the biggest assets of a mushroom grower is his creativity (besides cleaniness). Gotta be able to adapt!

You have not looked HARD enough.

There are jam, jelly, pickle & other food jars of all sorts in every grocery store in the modern world that are clear widemouth glass jars, with tight fitting metal or plastic lids that will PC.

If that fails..... in stores all over the world, you can find a set of inexpensive drinking glasses like this.

They work. You can use tyvek and/or tinfoil-verm as an air filter, held down with thick rubber bands (rubber bands will PC).

I have looked long and hard but the eternal search will never be over.
Thank you Agar and the others. You're real helpful, just like on overgrow.

I'll use drinking glasses!

???Will rye flour work instead of brown rice flour??? (I can't find this either, my country is like Brasil only in the other part of the world)

i tried using rye flour my first time. It works, I guess, but it takes forEVER to colonize! And you might want to test out different ratios with the rye, because it hold water differently than BRF or something...
