Mushroom growing set-up
    #4347820 - 06/28/05 08:40 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

i have 7 myco jars ( http://irie.tc/sb/product.php?xProd=115&xSec=4 ) in a giant rubbermaid container with vermiculite all over the bottom of the rubbermaid container and i injected 1 cc of Burma Strain mushrooms into each container. this is my first time growing and im wondering am i doing anything wrong or are there things i can do to improve this. keep in mind im hiding this rubbermaid container from room mates so i cant have cords and all this running into this random container. ill upload pics when i can

Thnx.

You need perlite not vermiculite.

Is it a mix? Verm is gold yellow and shiny, perlite is white.

I don't know if it will work because perlite wicks water out and creates humidity, verm holds it in till it extracted by something or evaporates.

You really NEED TO READ. First of all did you incubate the jars, are they fully colonized? You need no light during incubation, but 12 hours on 12 hours off during pinning, after pins have started give them 8 hours on 16 hours off, no incandescent light, use blue fluorescent. Just because i have said all this doesn't mean you don't need to read. As for humidity, GET SOME PERLITE, it's $2.57 at walmart.
