Newbie: General Questions, Need an Answer
    #838536 - 08/23/02 04:48 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Sorry for any inconvenience

1. What strains should I grow? (I don't have much first hand experience with shrooms, Im growing for profit.)

2. Why do you steam the substrate containers? If so, by covering up the holes you made and covering it with aluminum foil, what do you accomplish with sterilizing it?

3.I checked out this site: http://www.fanaticus.com/index.htm
After the "birthday cake" stage, is the fruiting stage next? Is that where I build a terranium for the growth?

4. I also check out http://www.mycotopia.net/teks/hongus.html
I saw on http://www.fanaticus.com/index.htm that you dont mess with the cakes after the are colonized, why is this guy crumpling it up?

Thanks. I'm sorry if there was a thread about these, but I didn't find them.

Hi...

In reply to:

You sterilize it after you pack the substrate to kill any contaminants that exist in the jars. Covering with foil helps to keep things sterile after the jars have been steamed with the foil on them.

Yes.

You would crumble the cakes so that they may be cased or used in a "flat cake" tek.

Most of your questions (and future questions) are answered in the FAQ. It's a great source of information.

Great another wannabe drug dealer.

Please don't talk like this on our board.

Please refer to growing for your own personal use.
