Outdoor 2005 Questions
    #4089506 - 04/23/05 08:54 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hey guys hows it goin?
A partner and I are getting ready for the outdoor season so Ive come to ask the experts about some things.

1. Im in Toronto, Ontario and the frost has been gone for weeks and its starting to rain heavily (been pissin on us all day, is it safe for me to assume that we're in the clear and that patches spawned will survive the temperatures?

2. I'm getting a colonized 2 quart jar of mycellium soon. Just how many patches can I spawn with this? How far can I stretch the spawn to manure substrate in outdoor without risking the whole patch failing or taking far too long to colonize? This is very important to know.

3. Should I apply a casing layer on my patches? Should I do this immediately after spawning or after patch colonization? Whats the best bulk casing layer for me to use? Peat, verm, soil?

4. My patches are in areas that are locally accessible, will my yield suffer If I am unable to cover them with tarps until colinized?

5. Since were looking to maximize yield, is it practical or safe to bring water to the patches everyday? Will it bump yield up I constantly water?

6. I so far have been unable to find daetamacius earth DE or however its spelled, are you guys aware if the slug bait or poisons sold at stores such as Canadian Tire are safe to use around the patch? Ill update with specifics obviously once able.

7. Will having patches near established trees or bushes cause the water content from them to be leached out by the roots?

Thats about all I can think of off the top of my head, Im sure ill be back for more help but thanks to anyone who can help me with this.

Ill be sure to keep you all updated with pics once it's underway.

1. Im in Toronto, Ontario and the frost has been gone for weeks and its starting to rain heavily (been pissin on us all day, is it safe for me to assume that we're in the clear and that patches spawned will survive the temperatures?

after several weeks of 75?F+ (most were in the 80's) temps we just hit 54?F,
you may want to wait and plan a little longer

2. I'm getting a colonized 2 quart jar of mycellium soon. Just how many patches can I spawn with this?

1 effectively

3. Should I apply a casing layer on my patches? Should I do this immediately after spawning or after patch colonization? Whats the best bulk casing layer for me to use? Peat, verm, soil?

I cover it with a little soil and some leaves to help control the moisture, just
look around in the woods at how mushrooms are growing there.

4. My patches are in areas that are locally accessible, will my yield suffer If I am unable to cover them with tarps until colinized?

use the leaves, it should eb in a shady area like under a bush, localy accessable means?

5. Since were looking to maximize yield, is it practical or safe to bring water to the patches everyday? Will it bump yield up I constantly water?

it'll probably drown the mycelium, try letting nature do most of the work

6. are you guys aware if the slug bait or poisons sold at stores such as Canadian Tire are safe to use around the patch?

beer, a few pie tins of beet about 15-20 feet from the patch, it's more
appealing to the slugs and they crawl in and die

7. Will having patches near established trees or bushes cause the water content from them to be leached out by the roots?

no, it's preferable to place them under, the hsade from the bush as well as leaves and what ever is arround will actualy aid in moisture retention, sort
of like a mulch, direct sunlight is the other option and it'll more likely dry out

Thanks man, I really appreciate the help, here's a couple follow up.

1. Yea temps round here for the next couple days are in the area of 45-55F, IM aware that temps such as 75-83F are obviously much more suited to the task but will the myc die off in the 50-65's range? Will colonization rate suffer greatly at these colder temps?

2. Really just 1 patch from a whole 2quart/2litre jar? When I got it in the past it was many times larger than the standard half pint jars, much larger. If we can only get 1 patch from the 2quart, can I atleast make it a veritable mountain of shrooms?

4. Locally accessible means that the woods are public and in preperation i noticed many signs of people usin the area for varied purposes in the past (some signs of gardening, also things like camp fire pit)

5. Yea I was gonna use the beer method, ill be sure to keep good distance cause itll attract slugs to the area.

Thanks again for the help man!
