Outdoor Growing Questions
    #4592192 - 08/28/05 09:50 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Well, my spore print (Z-Strain) arrived a few weeks ago. I was planning on just following the PF Tek guide, but am unable to get either a syringe or vermiculite due to circumstances beyond my control (the only thing I could find was (whole) brown rice...not even brown rice flour).

So, I was thinking I could just do an outdoor grow.
The area I was planning to "plant" in is one with fairly fertile soil and gets a good amount of shade/just enough light. Getting water to the patch is no issue, but I am doubtful that I would be able to obtain any manure. Temperatures are between 70-85 degrees(F) during the day and 40-60 degrees(F) at night.

What I've decided on is to cut the spore print into four pieces (each with roughly the same amount of spores) and plant them in damp soil. I also plan to do a fifth one with the spores on the inside of the packages the print was contained in (removed with water).

My questions are -
- Would this be sufficient to have a good chance to get at least one patch (all the outdoor guides I've read about started with either a fresh or spent cake)?
- Would cutting it up further and making 4 spots with a few spore "strips" within close proximity to each other work better?
- Should I test the pH of the soil before (and if so, what pH should I shoot for and how would I obtain this)?
- Finally, what should I do to prepare the soil (such as aerating it, etc) and how much should I water it (the area is pretty dry)?

Sorry for the length and all the questions, but I really haven't been able to find much on the topic. Any help/tips anyone can give me are HIGHLY appreciated.

The Shroomery has a huge library of information. I recommend you going there and educating yourself a bit. Good luck.

While most my questions can be answered there, I still can not find anything on outdoor growing without starting from a cake. I was wondering if it could be done (fairly successfully) and if there were any special things people have found to improve the chances. This was my real reason for starting the thread. The other questions were more for other peoples personal experiences and preferences in this area.

Sorry, but I don't really envision that method as having success.

You are going to have to start with some kind of colonized substrate.

Then if you were smart...you would spawn it into some horse poo or some other type of bulk substrate.


here is a great outdoor post for you to read...

Yeah, for an outdoor grow, you will need at the very least some spawn to start the patch with. Straw or manure would also be REALLY helpful to spawn to. I doubt that dirt will give you the results you want. You can get h/poo from Tenn Stud. You can get syringes from a feed store or order online to make a spore syringe, but it's not completely necessary. You may want to go to the marketplace forum and try to trade up for something to get what you need.
