Brown sugar in misting spray?
    #626299 - 05/11/02 01:36 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Hey everyone
I was wondering if anyone has any info / experience in misting spray additives, to give the shroomies some nutrients and help em grow.
The reason I ask this is because a FOAF was telling me that he once grew some shrooms and he said that the thing that made them grow good was that he had added some brown sugar to the water which he put in the misting bottle.
Does this sound like a good idea? Does anyone have recipies for misting spray additives? Brown sugar? Glucose? Whatever else? And in what quantities / frequencies? So many questions.....aah ya can never word it as good the second time round *curses server thingee crashing* Anyway, can anyone help me out?
By the way I am wanting to try this on a Psilocybe Cyanescens casing terranium keep in mind these are wood lovers.

As far as aditives go, I heard that you should add a small amount of calcium carbonate to the water, that will help keep contams at bay.

Oyster shells, or goto the pet store and look in the bird food section.

I would not do it. Contams will find you. I used mesh under a casing- After third flush i Lifted the mesh & injected with pr. cooked bird piss- recased. After one more flush-BOOM every tray was devoured by three(friend counted four) differant kinds of mold.

I think that spraying your terrarium with brown sugar would almost guarantee contamination. It might be interesting to see if a solution that included hydrogen peroxide with the brown sugar would be tolerable, but even that is more than likely to make things sticky and beg contamination. It may be worth a try, but only if you've got the terrarium and casings to spare.
