New grower questions
    #4270530 - 06/08/05 03:46 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I recently decided I really wanted to get into the cultivation of mushrooms. I read up only on what was needed and was able to purchase a Large tupperware box (3 Feet Long, 8 inch height), 12 glass bowls, vermiculite, brown rice flour, perlite, and a fishtank heater which im gonna submerge in a small bath to be used as a humidiyer + heater. Im also getting a thermometer so I can get a perfect read on the temp inside my grow box.

Now I have some questions, First im lacking a pressure cooker. Now do I need a large industrial Pressure cooker that costs like $200, or can I use the cheap ones that you can get at Walmart?

Second question was regarding the type of strain best suited for the current box setup I have right now. I was thinking PES Hawaiian but I dunno they will be growing higher than the 8-10 inch height my box is. Whats a good strain that will yield good sized mushrooms at short height?

Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

The Walmart variety will work, but you actually don't need a PC at all if you're usinjg the PF tek (which I'm guessing you are from reading your supply list). Boiling the jars will work just fine.
