In the past I have used broken Terra cotta pots (you know, the regular orange-ish colored flower pots). They retain water well, even when smashed into a thousand tiny pieces

Also, since planting season is over, all of Walmart's terra cotta pots are on clearance now...

buy some white chalk like they use in schools and crush it up a bit into pieces the size of a pencil eraser or smaller... that should work well as a replacement.

Chalk is very alkaline. I would be wary of using it in such quantities.

I suggest you guys dump the pf jars and the need for vermiculite.

Grow shrooms like a pro with colonized rye grain being used to innoculate compost. This is a cheaper method which results in bigger and more shrooms. It's also more fun and just as easy. When I read about people still putting 4 holes in a lid of a little jar, you guys are stuck in the '70's!

The 70's? How did you get that idea? PF released his tek around 1992. It was revolutionary for it's time. It allowed the novice cultivator the chance to experience a high degree of success. What innovations have you brought to mycology?

Better yet, do my method:

Buy a cow. Put him in your back yard. Make that bitch eat nothing but straw and grass covered with spores. Let him shit everywhere, kill him and eat him. Wait a couple of weeks and you have mushrooms. Throw the spent turds over the fence into your neighbors yard.

I dont know where youre from but here in the US, its redily available. Ive been to about 7 places nationwide california,delaware,utah,florida,maine,illinois,louisiana in the last 2 years and ive been able to find vermiculite everywhere without much work. People generally dont look. They assume there is nothing because they didnt look. In utah i thought there were no nuserys anywhere...i lived there for years and noticed a hidden nursery 2 blocks away...Its around

Max - Compost will not give you more shrooms per weight than rye or millet - compost is good because it is cheap and bulk substrate that you can easily spawn without contamination in bulk amounts.
I was unaware that there were any 'professional' cubensis growers - and if there were, they wouldnt be like you - domesicating wild prints by simply feeding them into spore syringes - no agar involved.
Max receives wild prints from Wollongong - two weeks later Max's Wollongong strain is available on max's site...
Just because you use rye doesnt mean shit if you cant isolate with agar - maybe you should get passed the casing stage first??

The green foam stuff is called Oasis Foam. I would hold water well, but I'm not sure if it would block contams. I also don't know if it would hold up in the PC.

Someone had the idea once to go to the local zoo and see if they will give up some Elaphant poop to use in the "garden". Cities have zoos.

It sounds like for some, compost may be easier to find than vermiculite.

mickey, are your holes so small contams can't fit? Here's an innovation: take the lid right off!

Damn Capt. you're so smart. How did I ever get by without your sound advice? LMAO

Are you confused? The holes are protected by the dry vermiculite layer. When I use PF style jars, I keep the holes taped until the jars are 100% colonized. In addition to this, I use a variant of the PF tek and have a layer of foil between the vermiculite and the substrate. If someone followed your advice, they would surely lose the entire lot.

Please refrain from posting cultivation advice until you actually get a clue.

I take the lid right off mickey, it's much easier, the verm barrier is still there and when working in a clean air space, like a small room with a hepa air filter, there is very little danger of contamination. Even working on your kitchen counter is pretty safe unless there is a specific reason why your air is contaminated..like the mouldy cakes in the wastebasket, the corpse in the corner....do you live in a slum perhaps?
