Clarification of a few Methods...
    #4266269 - 06/07/05 02:06 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Hey, i posted earlier with some questions on the over-all method of cultivation mushrooms and the "Do's and Dont's". I recieved some useful information back (thanks dudes and dudets) about mushroom growing, and one of those replies that i found useful was to look at a lot of different Teks instead of sticking to just one. Well i did that, following the site's "official" Tek as well as a few random ones. I understand the whole process, at first glance i was bewildered but after closer inspection of the Tek's it makes sense to me. Though a few things i still needed some clarification on.

That being the Post on how not using a double lid of Tin Foil and a Jar Top for your Mushroom Jar can increase the growing rate dramatically and can decrease the time you have to spend in the incubation stage. What i was confused is that, they stated that instead of using the lid, they would just use a layer of tin foil, leaving the the 4 holes open, because according to them, when you have too many lids and not enough airways, the gas exchange in the Mushroom Jar can become unbalanced, and result in much more time spent in the incubation stage. They also say that the top layer of Vermiculite is sufficient in keeping out bacteria.

This is really the only thing im still confused on.

One more thing, when steaming the Mushroom Jar's in a Croker Pot(i dont have a pressure pot thing) for around 45 - 60 minutes, do you just follow the time guidline or are there visible appearences and signs that the jar's have been steamed enough?

Thanks again for your patience with me, I'm really exited to grow my first batch and i want to get things perfect.

Shroom On!!

Edit -
Also during the fruiting stage, the Tek states leaving a indirect light on a safe distance away is the thing to do. Is this correct? Did i read that right?

Don't worry so much about incubation. It's no big deal.

With PF tek. If you put dry verm. on the top. Then one piece of alum. foil is fine.

And with boiling/steaming, 45 mintues, nothing that you can really "see".

Good luck :thumbup:
