a. Any grain will work, grass seed is the standard but rice and grass seed formulas seem to form sclerotia faster. Probably due to the greater moisture holding capacity of rice as compared to grass seed. Rice formulations tend to be unshakable masses, but since making spawn is not the point, it doesn't matter.

Grass seed:water 2:1 ratio. I use about a cup of seed to a quart and 1/2 cup water. I don't know a good rice ratio. I think Una posted one. A search might be in order.

b. Yes, you just innoculated the jars and leave them alone at room temperature. The sclerotia slowly forms and you can harvest when you see enough stones to satisfy you (2-4 months for mexicana, 3-6 months for tampanensis). The longer you leave them alone, the larger the stones get. One cup of grass seed = 30-40+ dry grams mexicana (A strain) in 3 months. Tampanesis is about 1/2 that.

c. Yes, you can case them. I use a peat/oystershell casing but anything used for cubensis should work fine. Vermiculite casings are not ideal since the verm sticks to the sclerotia tenaciously. You can't get large amounts of both sclerotia and fruits simultaneously. You either get lots of sclerotia and few mushrooms or visa versa. The mycelium is not as contamination resistant as cubensis, so if you have problems with mold when working with cubes, you will have more trouble with mex or tamp. Good luck!

Directly from Una: For the rice is used equal volumes of rice and water. For millet equal amounts by WEIGHT and for the grass seed about 2:1 in volume (grass seed/water).
