Toilet roll kits Delicious edible mushrooms can be easily grown by pouring the spawn into the centre of a roll of toilet paper! Will fruit in about six weeks and should provide three or four crops. The complete kit includes 100g of spawn (enough for two toilet rolls) and full instructions. A fascinating introduction to mushroom growing that is especially fun for children. Slime mushroom (Pholiota nameko) ?4.00 Order now! Oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus) ?4.00 Order now!
he's legit hip.....who would think...toilet paper rolls?i wounder if it helps to take a shit in the roll...hehehe
I was about to order the kit, since 4 pounds is only like 6 bucks. Anyway, when they say "mushroom spawn", do they mean mycelium water? I would try this, just cause it seems so easy, but there have to be better ways to grow than on toilet paper.
I think when they say "mushroom spawn", they are talking about colonized grain or saw dust. I'm gonna take a guess, and say they are taking innoculated grain spawn, because it's easier to pour, and then pouring it in a toilet paper roll. They are probally sealing both ends of the toilet paper roll with some kinda filter(to prevent contamination and to allow air exchange) I would also guess, they are wetting the toilet paper roll to a certain percentage of water. Then I would guess you should incubate the roll untill it is colonized. Once the roll is colonized, obviously it would be fruited. The incubation time and temp. will vary for different strains. Do your homework on the growth parameters of the strain being cultivated.
