Hey ya'll...
    #4372553 - 07/05/05 05:01 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Just wanted to stop and say "hay". I recently got the bug for edible cultivation. I feel like a lurker if I don't say hi.
You probably won't hear from me for awhile here, the information is overwhelming. I see some I know from other forums, and some I've never seen before, and some I thought were gone, lol.
Anyway, just wanted to say hay, and that I am impressed with the skills of everyone here!

peace

40 views, no replies. I sure hope things pick up from here.
Well, I've been reading for a few days, found lots of information, but I still am not ready to start. I know I want to start with oysters, but I haven't seen a tek.
Can someone link me to a tek or help me out with some information on substrate preparation? Am I overlooking this?

TYIA

first you need to grow up some spawn - grainspawn is easiest. have you made sterilised grain jars yet? if not, learn that first. if so, you need to get hold of some edible myc on agar (starting from spores will be harder), then either directly put pieces of agar into the grain, or put it in some honey water or similar to grow it up first.

as for fruiting substrates, for oysters you can just pasteurise some straw in a pillowcase.

i think people are slow to respond cos we don't know what you've read and what you can and can't do. if i were you, i'd find a good successful oyster thread in the growlog forum, and copy it exactly. hope this is some help. :tongue:

Thanks Shirley. I've been doing alot of searching in this forum, I probably know enough now to answer some questions, lol.
Grain? yeah, I watch my buddies' cat spawn grain all the time.
That's a good heads up, will do.

TY

Hey LouiseLouise,

Check out this, lots of good stuff here.

http://www.shroomery.org/gourmet

Learn to make your own agar. You can use half pint jars and
sterilize the agar directly in the jars.

Yeah, I'm about 2/3 of the way through that link on my 2nd time around, lol.
There is a lot of information within those pages. But, I have yet to find a tek like there is in say pf tek. I'm reading through anno's compilation for the second time, b/c I know it's easy to overlook things.
Thanks for the reply :wink:

:peace:

lol, Ironic, I read your reply this morning, and I spent a couple hours reading that thread last night!
Great thread, it gave me the information I needed.

Thanks
peace
