horse dung perhaps ?

The perlite isent wet. Its just an layer in the fruiting container.

I figured the problem out. The casing is contamed.....again. This is the 8. casing from mexicana that contam. I dont understand why. I never have troubles with my other casings.

Shit....

I have another bag that is incoluated months ago. I dont give up .

Next time i will try your tips with the worm casting.

You say also horse dung. Did you mean an pure thin layer of it?

And i need an new hygrometer


Thx for your help Hippie

If you're wanting to fruit the mexicana, dump a three month old jar or bag of rye with full sized sclerotia into a peat/verm mix. It will fruit in a couple of weeks. Anything you do with dung or manure will abort before you get a spore print, just like those did.

That one might have given a few spores. It looks like it needed an extra two or three days. The mexicana fruits grow much more slowly than cubies.

would you then recommend trying to print apparently sporeless caps ?
might get a faint print after several days ?

Roger, when you say dump a jar or bag with full size sclerotia into a peat vermiculite mix do you mean like spawning a bulk substrate? Or do you mean just case with a mix of the stuff?

I meant to case with it. Small casings seem to work better than large ones.
