Will BRF Cakes Cont. to Colonize HAY??
    #698025 - 06/24/02 11:31 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

So I ordered the Deluxe Mini Kit from the SporeTrading Post and Mr Keeper (whoever the hell he is) and I've got TWO jars left (from 12, all but 1 colonized and fruited)- the most I've been able to make from one 1/2 pint cake is around 50-60grams wet by using a bottom layer verm./colonized substrate (BRF i'm sure)/and a casing of peatmoss+vermiculite.
This method took a while to configure, I was wasting cakes by letting them sit in the chamber on perlite, as recommened by Mr Keeper (bastard)- I was lucky if i got 5-6 SHROOMS this way-
SO ANWYAYS- I've read that dung and hay produce a more bountiful flush and more flushes (I can only get 1, lucky with 2) and was wandering if I can innoculate hay with crumbled pieces of my colonized substrate and then case this and get better results? Basically, will my colonized substrate continue to colonize hay?

thanx-- -- C A M B O

p.s.- I have to give this Keeper guy credit for letting me start my very first growing opportunity BUT he's ripping people off by telling them to grow his way- casing is so much damn better, and I've learned it all here at the shroomery

Possibly, but...

#1 - Most people would use Wheat Straw..not hay!
#2 - Most people spawn with a type of whole grain (rye etc.)

Hey Lucy!

I've heard of people having good success colonizing compost with this method and I intend to try that.

cool, thanks for the info- i just read some guys info on how he colonized cow dung in a jar with crumbled grain and got fantabulous results, sounds good

i was going to try that Timothy Cobb Hay stuff, I see it a lot when I'm out at Wal Mart and Super Pets picking up mushie supplies and have seen people grow them off of it too

but should I use STRAW instead of that Tim Cobb HAY stuff? Is a good straw substrate available at my local fart marts?
