Experimental Recipe (Feedback Needed)
    #505085 - 12/30/01 07:11 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

I'm basically trying to expand on a previous recipe the consisted of:
2 Cups BRF
3 Cups Composted Manure (Basically just humus)
4 Cups Vermiculite
Dash of Rye Flour, maybe 10 grams (all i had left)
Water to proper content

This previous recipe worked well! Strong, Rhizomorphic growth after 7 days, about 66% colonized (pints).


Proposed Recipe
------------------------------------------------------------------

2 Parts Rye Flour (Organic Whole Grain grounded to flour)
2 Parts Worm Castings
2 Parts Composted Manure
2 Parts Vermiculite
1 Part Perlite
1 Part Rye Grass Seed * (flour or grain?)
Enough water for proper moisture

* Does Rye Grass seed contain nutrients that rye grain doesn't? If theres no added benefit to adding rye grass-seed, Change above recipe to 3 Cups Rye Flour

What are some specied of Cubes that might work well on this recipe? I have Tas, Cambo, GC, EQ, and PES Hawaiian. I may also test this recipe with Cop. Cyans.

There's always room for improvement! Please post your thoughts on this recipe! Thanks in advanced!

Well, since I didn't get too many replyies, I think I'll just do some experiements with different substrates and report back with my results.

Thanks anyways :)

>Does Rye Grass seed contain nutrients that rye grain doesn't?

Rye grass seed and rye grain are 2 totally different things.
But both will get colonized by any mycelium.

sounds like we are interested in doing the same thing-getting the best substrate.
if i can get some dung, i will try your mix. i am trying quick cereal mixes and i am doing tests with cous-cous mixes, quinoa (does what it says on the tin), and now starting to try bran based breakfast cereal like all-bran.
i am yet to find an article detailing the dietry requirements of cubensis strain, and a breakdown of the nutrients in different substrate components.
if you or anyone else is interested in teaming-up to investigate as many combinations as possible until we find the perfect mix then mail me at n2thepowerofn@yahoo.co.uk and we can start a new thread to collect results and coordinate experiments.

Why are you trying to mix bulk substrate ingredients with your spawn ingredients? That's been tried many times as a way to save a step, but it costs more in yields than it saves by skipping a step. BRF is not a good bulk substrate, nor is manure a good spawn.
