Only 9 Months From Start to Finish
    #471120 - 11/27/01 02:58 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Well ive been tring for nine months"only a couple hours a week" and I have some thing to show for it. I took nine quarts of EQ spawn and innoculated a 150 gallon container of my new and improved mix. I just harvested 8 mushrooms that weighed over a kilo. Should be more than a hundred grams dry. I cloned all eight. Flush number two has just started and I have pins the diameter of a nickle.

new and improved mix.
5 lbs of straw "dry"
1 lbs of mother natures earth worm castings
30 cc of alaska moor bloom fish fertalizer.

Soak straw in warm water"no chlorine" for an hour. Remove and strain well. Mix in earthworm castings. Mix 30 cc of moor bloom with 250 cc of water. Mix into straw. Put all of the mix into a crab steamer. I live in Maryland. Steam at 150-170 F for two hours. Let cool on the stove overnight then innoculate. Use 10-15 percent spawn by volume. Good Luck

There is some contamination. Not a problem though. Just use 1 cake crumbled and mixed with 5 volumes of straw or dung. It should take less than two weeks to colonize. Take a look at a few straw teks.
