The largest cake ever!!!
    #825056 - 08/18/02 08:51 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

While strolling through the Gap of Zanth the other day holding an interesting conversation with my friend the Dragon, I had an idea. Back in Mudania i know of a certain landscape company that has a Very large compost pile this pile is larger than a good sized three bedroom house. The pile is composed primarily of grass clippins and leaves and is arranged so the older stuff is at one nd of the rectangular pile (the pile is almost 2 stories tall. The pile is "stirred up" once a month or so with a huge front end loader.

Well case you haven?t figured it out yet I am proposing to colonize this pile.... I?m not sure if a colony of that size is feesible with cubies. (which is all i have availibe right now.) Another concern is the heat generated inside of a pile that large as it breakes down, when it is cold out the pile is constantly steeming even in the dead of winter. Maybe the end that is already good and decomposed will be a little cooler since it has already broke down.

Any input on this idea would be apperciated. I think seeing that huge pile turn white inside and covered with caps after a rain would be awe inspireing.

acording to Stamets, substrate deeper than about a foot deep will succomb to anerobic contams. its not that mushroom mycelium wouldn't survive that deep, it's just that in the core of the pile, the conditions favor the anerobic bacteria. the composting company is deliberatly encouraging these bacteria, so it is very unlikely that you will achieve the desired goal of johnny appleseeding the whole countryside with sacred carpophores. nice try though.

Yeah - you'd have to stop the composting by spreading it out, and then crumble a few *hundred* cakes on it.

Make a massive spore slurry and spray it on the pile. Chances are you won't get any fruits on the pile itself but you may successfully spread active spores.

yeah the inside of a pile that side would be intensly hot. barn fires start from hay that starts to decompose, so it'd be a few hundred degrees in the middle. Since they're mixing it up all the time i doubt you'll have any success, save for maybe a few cubies that might establish themselves on debris around the pile

These are the kind of posts the Shroomery needs more of!

Oh, and this definitely does not belong in 'Advanced Mycology.'
