Coffee
    #8796707 - 08/19/08 05:21 PM (9 years, 7 months ago)

I wanted to do an experimental spawning mix of coffee with 50/40 peat/verm mix (dash of lime) 10% ground coffee mix... basically just for the hell of it....
I was wondering something though... will the caffeine have any affect on the mycelium growth?

coffee is added to substrates often it raises nitrogen. alot of coco coir bulk growers use spent coffee grounds to get more flushes from coir.

Using spent coffee grounds result in less of a PH hit than fresh coffee grounds.

nope, and i havent research the answer for this. but i did however research about caffine. and most openions are that mushrooms ignore it and caffine isnt metabolized into the fruits.

Give it to much coffee and it gets the shakes. LOL Fresh coffee is fine. I use it from time to time and haven't had any problems.

Don't use coffee in casings.  It's a great substrate or substrate additive though.

I just use a layer of verm for the casing layer...  I've been using a 60/40 peatmoss/verm mix as a bulk substrate, I was thinking about throwing some coffee grounds in there just to see if there is any improvement.

Cheers

I didn't even catch that he was talking about casings. Yeah let me say I never use it it casings only substrate.

Thanks for pointing that out RR.

Peat moss is used for a casing,Which goes on top of your subtrate after it is colonized.

Coffee is used in a subtrate spawn.(Example; Poo,coir,straw)

Woah, so i've been doing it wrong all this time?  I take fully colonized brf cakes, crumble them up, put crumbles over a layer of moist verm, then cover with about 1 1/2- 2 inches of peat moss/verm/lime mix, cover with foil then wait about a week or so then uncover (by this time white mycelium is growing up through the top of the peat moss) then I put a thin layer of dry verm over it, spray 'til moist, put in the FC and wait for the magic to happen.

Should I be doing this differently?

Mozart, the way you are doing it is basically putting 2 different casing layers on it. If you spawn to say poo or coir you will have better results.

Robanero!  It is so difficult to read anything you post!  It takes me 3 seconds to stop staring at your avatar.... than I read a little ... and go back to staring at your avatar.  Starbucks has freee bags of spent coffee grounds available for the customers, so if you don't drink the stuff and too broke to buy it, drop by starbucks.
