Just brought a kit. Now what?
    #4362336 - 07/02/05 05:42 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I'm completely new to mushroom growing and never even tried any but I thought I'd get a kit before they're banned. Unfortunatly the kit didnt come with any instruction.
As far as I can tell,I'm supposed to leave them in dim light,in high humidity - thats all I know.I've had it 3 days now and no sign of anything except the strands of white stuff covering the service - they're Mexican truffles btw.
I've put the thing inside an ice cream tub with some wet cardboard underneath to keep up the humidity. I have a 400W HPS I use to grow my Cannabis.Could I use this? Perhaps put it in the grow room where it's nice and warm and bright? I havnt got a bloody clue!
Help me please. :confused:

Ok welcome. I know a little about this  and a little on

Ok get rid of the cardboard and replace with perlite. Ditch the hps you have better things to do with it  :thumbup:. All you need is normal flourecents. Put it in a Rubbermade container with the moist perlite in the bottom. Put like a inch and a half of perlite and a 3/4 inch of water making sure it all moist.

Right,so do I take the cake thing out and out it directly on to the perlite or do I keep it in the box that it came in?

Put something in between the cake and perlite, even just a piece of tinfoil under would work. Maybe bend the edges up slightly though if you notice any water pooling up around the base of the cake.

Well if the box is made for the kit to grow in (and I would assume it is) leave it in it. Is the box plastic or cardboard? If cardboard put the kit in a clean (and I mean clean) plastic container.

Mag, you do realize he's got Mexicana A, which rarely fruits.. This kit sounds like it is for growing sclerotia, in which case light is unescessary.. To get sclerotia is actually pretty easy.. The sub is just left in incubating conditions for 3-4 months, then you dig out your truffles..

I got it from this place - http://www.growmagicmushrooms.co.uk/fresh_mushrooms.htm#truffles

It's Cubensis if that helps and theyre definatly mushrooms. The box is plastic.

How do you post pics btw?
