look in the archives...there's an easy tek using cowpies that I adopted...it works well. But it takes four weeks, After you've colonized some jars. Do you live in a warm climate? You cannot have outside shrooms during the freezing months, if you live in a climate where winter is present

my friend lives in texas, and, as an experiment, he took a cake that was contaminated, cut out the contams, broke it up and stuck it under some dirt in his garden. this was earlier this evening. not much chance of anything coming of it, huh?

Patoban, your friends cake will probably not produce much if anything. See outdoor growing in the archeives. There is one or two tales of a tossed outside cake fruiting but it's rare. What is the weather like now where you live?

that's the tek, folks, and it works great. I used this tek all summer in different spots all around my yard. It's a lot of fun to pick them fresh in the grass and eat fresh garden tomatos with them...we had a good time with it

I really dont know alot at this time so I mostly am just guessing , but why cant you like use the inside tek outside or the outside tek inside ?
It seems if they grown inside with brown rice and vermite that they would grow like that outside.. Maybe put a walmart container over it for humidity.HAs anybody tryed anything like that ?

the old dung that has been sitting outside for years has already been worked over by time, exposure to the elements, and hosted whatever bacterial and fungal growth that occurs naturally. It's an ideal growing medium for outdoors, and nothing can compete with the cubensis mycelium in this substrate in these conditions because it grows so agressively, and the dung attracts nothing new. But rice contaminates very quickly and is eaten up so fast by green and yellow and red molds and bacteria that if you were to put it in an environment where anything can attack it, the cubensis mycelium won't do very well. However, you can take fully colonized cakes or grain and put that outside, with some sort of casing tek and protection from the sun, and they will fruit. Cubensis fruited in this manner are very different from those fruited in a terrerium, remaining short but growing wide caps and thick, fibrous stems.
