How to make the coco substraight step by step
    #585421 - 03/21/02 05:09 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

There is a bunch or gossip & info about this new coco substaright that colonizes faster then any other anyone know the exact formula & how to make it step by step my guess is that its made up of the coco stuff (a specific brand some are not good) brown rice maybee millet or rye all mixed up to make this new breakthrough in mushroom growing. Any advice on producing this? Thanks

My advice is to learn how to spell substrate first, then go and buy yourself a few books on mushroom growth parameters (if there are?). Then all you need is a thousand or so hours to find the precise level between contamination and lightning quick growth; plus at least a few thousand dollars to invest in supplies. Or just be happy that you can buy it, for any price. I know I am!!

since coco fibre has no nutrients I cant really see how this could be a breakthrough.. why not just use rye or a regular substrate of your choice

i get my vendors mixed up but i believe it is mycosupply that produces the hydra-pod. this is also the same dude bubbling up a new coir substrate. it involves adding PURE liquid nutrients to the coir; not just brown rice flour. basically this step gets us 1 step closer to hydroponic as the substrate itself is non nutritious; it only fives structure as the myc grows solely from the nutrient solution. there is a thread in advanced about it found here: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Forum4&Number=568099&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=all
but its no recipe that he will distribute; only for retail sale folks- i think he mades that clear in the thread.
if you want 'super fast colonization' try grinding up some fresh millet flour or use dark rye flour or quinona flour (or try all 3) and use that with vermiculite (about 1:2) and inocculate with honeywater.


--------------------
Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?
maybe theres a tek out there to explain how to use it!
BUCKETS BRIGADE left hand man!!!

Mycotek_Service:
"...it's mainly for pod users imo since coco-husk fiber holds onto water about like a
junkie holds onto cash"


Have you tested the nutrient mix with straight vermiculite? Have you contemplated selling
it without the coco-husk fiber for use in different applications?

anyone else working on their own home-made coco substrates? i've got some jars going just for the halibut with a mixture of coco/brf/rye/brown rice and they seem to be coming along about the same as jars of brf/vermiculite. it's certainly not a 'high tech' mixture, and this is my first shot at it, but it do think it's got potential.

i'm not concerned about hydration (i.e., the coco drying out too quickly) 'cause i'm going to bust the cakes up and case 'em when they're fully colonized...

take care! stay safe...

the trick to coco substrate is its moisture content and nutrient content. To much nutrient goes slow and too much moisture contams. Trick I have found to limit the nutrients in the coco fiber is to soak it in straw or dung water. Then use straw and grain additives.

Everything thing I said is false cause everyone knows Im full of shit(cow that is).
