questions about mushrooms growing in old woodchips and dirt
    #4487392 - 08/03/05 12:21 AM (12 years, 16 days ago)

i have just decided that i want to start cultivating mushies. i have read a bit about it from documents i found on the net.i live in australia and i pick most of my blue meanies out of old woodchips/bark and dirt. i have recently dug a few of these sections up and put them in a large container at home. see profile pic. i am spraying them regularly and they are definitely growing. is there any dangers involved with doing this until i can take a spore print and start growing on a rice cake or something similar. and also,is there any dangers in actually taking these mushrooms?

I am planning to wire a 12v computer power supply to a 12v car windscreen washer pump. this will be plumbed to a couple of fine mist spray nozzles through a t piece. i will then build an electronic timing circuit with variable time on and time off to control how often and how long mist is sprayed into the container. i think this should do the job for the humidity. i will also set up a timing circuit to control a couple of small lights inside. pretty cheap setup. will i need to incorporate a heater also? i will attach another 12v water pump to drain any water from the bottom of the container ~1-2 times per day run by the same type of circuit. i want it to be fully functional with minimal maintainence.

I would appreciate any tips and growing ideas as this is my first attempt

Just be sure you know what you are growing before you eat it.

There are risks.
