Coffee/Caffeine for misting? Updated with pics
    #4306027 - 06/17/05 12:58 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Hey-

So I am going to try using coffee to soak my WBS... but I was wondering if anyone had tried using it for misting. Couldn't find anything in posts. I have a 3rd and final flush on a small casing.. so I figured I would try it on that one.

Just curious if anyone has tried it before. We will see how it goes for me.

EDIT: I think I am going to use a caffeine pill rather than coffee. I know it isnt set that the caffeine is the good thing... but I don't really want to wet em down with coffee...

coffee will contam quickly, just like a cup of coffee that is left out for 3 days. As for a caffine pill, like viveran, im sure it has too many chems to help


--------------------
Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Ha. I'm gonna use vivarin, I have it lying around.. and they actually have the entire list of what's in it online...

I figured most of the stuff wasn't in large amounts... and it's a last small flush anyways. So no big deal. The caffeine really seems to pump up the myc. So no one actually tried it....?

i personally have had very bad luck with both coffee and coffee/espresso grinds added to the casing layer. maybe just me, but its caused me grief in the past. i remember way back when being in a post discussing typtophan being added to the substrate. last i remember someone was looking into finding out about what temperature it breaks down at, and someone else mentioned griffonea seeds. wonder whatever happened with that...

So I tried some caffeine last night. Crushed a 200mg cap into my little spray bottle... about 1 pint of water?

Not that I can say the caffeine had anything to do with it.. but it's cool anyways. I only sprayed around the big guy. So not to say he wouldn't have grown anyways.. but I will certainly be trying this some more...

Last night before spray:


This morning after 10hours:

You soak and simmer in the coffee (thats what RR did anyway, as did I). Didnt see much from it, but didnt do much experimenting with it. Poo water works just as well if not better IMO.

Coffee is great on nutes, thats what I think it is, not the caffiene. The way caffiene effects our brains wouldnt affect fungus the same way...maybe it does it different with similar effect, but I doubt that its just not the nutes...coffee grounds have been used in substrate and compost for a long time in commercial ops though..they believe it to be the nutes too, not caffiene.

I dont think adding caffiene would affect anything in anyway, soak or spray..spraying with coffee though I think would be bad, I think it wold invite unwanted contams...plus mycelium gets its nutes when its colonizing the substrate...when your misting, its trying to fruit, not eat.

I will be soaking/simmering in the same coffee water.

I just wanted to try some caffeine in the water. Once I get some batches that are all the same. I will try spraying half and then not the others. See if the caffeine really does anything at all...
But either way.. I like my big boy  :cool:

I know, feel free to experiment...I've just followed the coffee thing for a while so put in what I had to say and my thoughts on it...

And that's what a thread is all about. :wink: Otherwise it wouldn't be much of a thread...

i had tried coffee in the casing material, as well as coffee and water for the substrate's liquid part. both went to hell for me.
