Contamination...??? HA!!!
    #837488 - 08/23/02 07:15 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Well...

Had a cake sitting in my terranium for a month that would not fruit, well none of them would.. so instead of quiting,, *( yeah, i'm a persistent bastard !! )

I took an old pot in my basement, filled it with some straight black potting soil, no verm.. perlite, etc etc... right out of the bag, wich by the way was opened and had been sitting there for a few weeks, dumped a brf cake in the middle and poured some hot water on top.

Left it uncovered on a counter in the basement ( wich by the way, is not a livable basement, dirty, smells, not a fun happy place at all... and last night i had a peek and bam.. a mushroom growing nice and healthy about 2 inches tall, nice and meaty..

What gives!!~?? i see some mycelium growing in the middle were i poured the hot water, the pot was not cleaned, had been used to grow weed for years etc..

strange...

comments? question?

As long as the ambient air temperature is within accepted ranges and some form of light is making it to the jars, they provide an adequate environment for fruiting.

Son of a godman fuck.. if i had only known..

OH, and i just read your thread about fannin twice a week,,, jesus... this should be in the FAQ..!!

Only makes sense, how much co2 can a cake produce anyways?? not much i assume, if you got some sort of crack in the lid,, you're set...

I'll get the hang of this eventually.. Now i only need to convince my gf to let me do it!! ha ha....

oh yeah.. potting soil.

It's just black dirt and peat moss.

99 cent bag at canadian tire... was a punctured bag in a fenced in yard outdoors.

Used some of it to plant some mint and other herbs.. Elas,, not weed.. i wish.. man i miss those days... but yeah, plain dirt!

Never even washed my hands... ha ha..

It is amazing how much abuse cubes can endure and fruit. Very resilient mushy.

Update::

Well, i picked the sucker last night, holy mack, it got big, fast!! I'm only getting one mush tho, were are all the others? will they come later??

But anywho,, got to be about 6 inches above the soil with a 3 inch stem below the soil wich came up when i pulled it. Was full of dirt, caked on, so i washed it under the tap... is this ok, do you guys wash your muchies? specially those who grow in poop!!

3 inch casing layer???

Try a 12 inch one... i used a 3 gal flower pot!! Filled it half way with dirt, dropped a cake and filled the pot to 2 inches below the top!!

One of these bottom feeder flower pots, ever seen one? they have a reservoire at the bottom with a wick to suck up water into the soil..

The pot has plenty of water tho, cuz it weighs a lot.

I see some mycelium growing on the top in a small patch.

A few days ago i gave it a little water with a watering stem, the mycelium seems to have receeded for a day or so, then it apeared again.. but no changes yet...

So, about the washing thing, how do you guys eat your shrooms?? dirt and all.. yuck.. When the mush poped out of the soil it had dirt on the cap wich stayed on while it grew, I've eaten worse in my life i know but felt the need to wash this off..

Brushing it off would have scraped the mushie and bruised it pretty bad, a nice gentle wash cleaned it up nice and today it's nice looking...!!

I'm hoping for more..!! woo hoo..
