Casing with altoids!!!
    #471155 - 11/27/01 03:42 PM (16 years, 5 months ago)

Hehehe
I just took my stunted mycelium (all about the sizes of quarters) and cased them in altoids boxes..heheh
mini mushroom farm!!! I wanna see if i can get it to grow like one or two tiny mushrooms .... I broke up 3 quarter sized mycelium chunks per altoids box.
(If your curious I innoculated the jars over a month ago..the mycelium just started and then stopped after like 4 days..I tried adding a little sterile bottled water to the tops of the jars hoping it wouldnt contaminate them..and hoping theyd get a little more air... but alas it didnt help..i think the problem was originally i used soft water without realizing it...so i figured why not go for it...THE ALTOID TEK !!!)

heheh..
Hey I have a question... Why is flour used in the jars but never in casing..I assumed its because the flour is more prone to contaminants than is dirt.... am I right?

The flour or BRP or whatever you'd like to call it is FOOD and what the mushrooms need to grow. The casing layer is used mainly to hold in moisture. As for your baby mushroom farm...there are certain types of ants that grow fungus for food inside their anthills- maybe you should share your idea with them.

Hey it actually worked
Except
I think its infested with cobweb mold as well

I opened it up and the mycelium is all nice and peaking through all the valleys of the altoids container
but
theres all this thing looking old man hair around the edges of the case
=(
