Popcorn pros and cons
    #4088779 - 04/23/05 04:47 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hey guys, i've been a little out of the loop for a year or so, but I'm back and starting my experiments again. I have never had a successful casing but this is the4 method i'm trying to use now. I used to get quart jars of popcorn to colonize real fast and real easily and I plan on using this spawn again, but my question is: are there any disadvantages to this? I've heard people say that popcorn provides inferior fruits and inferior amounts of fruits compared to other types of bulk spawn ie. wbs, rye etc. But i really like the corn because it colonizes so fast and so easily. Can anyone with experience with popcorn let me know whats up? Thx and be easy.

People just say that popcorn gives shitty fruits if you just straight case it and grow off it. It's perfect for spawning like you're saying. Just spawn the colonized popcorn to some horse poo and it should turn out quite well.

thats the one thing about shroom growing, the easy way out usually yields way worse than the hard way.  :shrug:

This is not true. So long as you can actually manage to grow shrooms, there is no problem with popcorn.
The problem comes when you can't actually grow shrooms well.. in which case the substrate is fairly much irrelevant.

Not being a big fan of shite in the house or indeed anywhere near my presence, I would use popcorn over BRF (as rye is a strange and unobtainable beast here). Mainly for the speed of colonisation, but also I've found it to give simply beazer fruits over a good number of flushes.

spawn is when you mix a colonized substrate with a bulk substrate.

so in this case he would be spawning(mixing) colonized popcorn into a bulk substrate such as horse poo.

horse poo is used alot as a bulk substrate.
