Is this how to use hpoo/straw?
    #4468719 - 07/29/05 01:28 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I've been researching the use of this substrate and I want to know if this will work:

My fully colonized cakes will be dunked for 24hours in a water/h2o2 solution. Then they will be rolled in vermiculite and shredded with a cheese grater (recommended by Mike at TennStud). Then I will place a small layer of the prepasteurized hpoo/straw substrate into the sanitized kitty litter box. Then I will add a layer of the crumbled cakes and mix thoroughly. I will repeat until I have one final layer of grated cakes at the top. Then I will wrap some saran wrap over the box and put a piece of tin foil with holes in it over top. I will leave it for a week or so to colonize some more and then I will give it light for 12 hours a day (in my closet). Is there anything else I need to do to produce a good fruit or is that basically it? Thanks guys!

First off i not roll the cakes before you grind them but instead make a casing layer, this will add all the extra moisture you need.


also read this if you want a good pin set with a casing pins!

it really isn't necessary to dunk and roll your cakes if you are going to grate them as spawn to h poo. you can layer it in like you are saying or just grate them up and mix it all at once. the final grating on top will help with a fast colonization to keep contams away.
you can use either the saran wrap or the foil, i don't think both are necessary though.
after colonization, are you going to case. you don't say anything about casing, it would be to your benefit to case. there are a few different teks for casing. i use the 50/50+ tek, 50% vermiculite 50% peat moss + garden lime to adjust the ph of the peat moss.
do a search on casings and you will figure out which is best for you.

good luck
peace

I thought the mushrooms would just grow straight out of the poo once given light? I guess if I must case I'll pick up some jiffy mix from walmart.

no you don't have to case, they will grow straight from the poo but you will get better/more flushes with a casing.
what the casing does it help retain moisture in the substrate, which shrooms love (the moisture).
shrooms to ya
peace

One more thing, once the myc have recolonized do I just pat the jiffy mix on top and that's it?
