Shroom food?
    #4121019 - 05/01/05 11:12 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hey, I was wondering if there are any vitamins or minerals i could buy from the store and grind up with the casing to make the shrooms grow big and strong?

Try looking at a garden center, but it might be hard to find. If you can't find it, you can always order it online.

What is karo?
I've heard you can substitute honey if you dont have karo?

karo is a highly nutritious syrup.. it has sucrose, which myc. cultures love. maltose is best, but its hard to get. you can buy karo at a store, make sure to get the light corn syrup.

Just dont come asking us why your cakes are contaming if you start adding nutrition after colonization.

I won't be a dick and say it ain't so, but I've learned to trust rav's judgement on these kinda things..

Although, I'd definately be interested in seeing some pictures if you've got any. Suppose it actually works, might be worth a look, no?

If your a new grower, you may want to steer away from adding nutrients to your casing.

The purpose of the casing is not to add more nutrients, but to be "neutral". It holds in moisture, gives mushroom a textured surface to grow from, and blocks out germs. If you add nutrients, you are in effect removing the barrier you made with the casing layer, kinda defeating the purpose of having one.

If you do however want to try adding nutrients, your best bet would be to inject sterile glucose solution under the casing layer into your bulk substrate, but it is still a tricky procedure and most often can give less results than the effort was worth. :smile: bluhoney

Youve heard of luck right? I didnt say it couldnt work...but when you finally get a spore to hit that water...and it germinates and one cake becomes infested..then all your cakes do. Just dont come back here asking why. If it doesnt happen, then you dont need to worry. I'm just saying...I've done a couple more then 5 grows...and they didnt succeed on luck alone...



Feel free to experiment though...you'll learn the same thing weve learned the hard ways. Helps you remember when you learn the hard way though.
