saw Dust?
    #765181 - 07/21/02 06:17 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

I was wondering if i could use this as a substrate Sawdust, Bread Crumbs, Potato spuds and water. This is my first growing. I wanted to try somthing new and do a grow log so sombody could tell me what i did wrong so i dont get discouraged and dont try again. So i was thinking that i could try this and i can vary with others to see how effective this was. Does anyone have any knowledge that this wont work or its not a good idea?

I'd like it if PF would come up off of some of his origional experiments, all the shit he tried that didn't work.

I don't think anybody here is going to be able to tell you for sure how it would work. All I can say is after you grow with a standardized tek you will know alot more stuff that can't be described over the internet. Texture is the first thing that comes to mind. It needs to be airy enough, but not too dry.

I don't thing the sawdust would provide any nutrients for a cubensis but might help with the texture.

Even if it did work, i don't think it would be a real improvement over the BRF cakes. Can you not get brown rice or vermiculite?

I think the best two discoveries I've read about here in the last few months have been the dry tek, which, for me, produced dense cakes that didn't fruit as well as my regular cakes, and the cereal water liquid mycelium mix. which aparently works about as well as dextrose, and better than the honey tek.


Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters. -- RR

An experiment that might have better results would be to replace half of the verm ratio with sawdust..... might hold water well.....might turn to muck...watch the h20 amounts and try different variations.
