Hi everyone. 

 

New member from Buenos Aires. Im new with mushroom culture as well. Right now I have Oyster and Psilocybe culture going on.

 

I have a specific question about gaseous exchange in the colonization of grain spawn. Is it totaly necessary to make opening to the flasks where I have the  inoculated grain? Because I couldnt find the materials to make the filter. So I just left small holes on the aluminium paper with the size of the srynge needle. Should I cover the holes with tape to avoid contamination, or I just leave it like it is?

 

Hope my english is understandable enough. Thanks!

Welcome franro.

 

Yes you should cover the holes with some form of breath-able material. Synthetic materials are the best. The stuffing from pillows or stuffed toys can be used - many of them have synthetic filling or "polyfil". 

OR 

You might try over-laying the aluminum foil with a layer of tyvek. It is breathable and synthetic also. Mailer envelopes can be made of tyvek.

 

If you're not already contaminated, with open holes you soon will be unless there is a layer of dry vermiculite on top of that jar.

Thanks people! I had to open a pillow to make the filter. Hope ir works.

 

I can see CatsAndBats made his own research. What you see there is the a beatiful convination between the best of European and Native American blood.

After seeing Cat's research, I may join him just in case he gets in over his head. In the interest of mycology ...... that is. 

 

I'm hoping your filter does the trick. 

If it fails, try installing the filter before you sterilize the jar.

Further proof that combining genetics is a great thing!

 

 

Felt works too, it's basically flattened polyfil.

Welcome amigo.  Your english is very good.  I wish you the best on your grows.

I mostly grow Cactus, you have any of those where you are?

Enjoy your mushrooms.

 

P.S. Beware, Cats is a little Batty, but of course I am the best sort.

Hey franro! I too am a new member here, and am looking forward to discovering more about growing techniques and foraging. I lived in Cordoba for a year, and it's good to hear that there's a mycological community going down in BA! Do you know other folks in your area that are active cultivars?

Hola Chico!

 

Im a biologyst so I heard of some fellow growers from the University, but they are not friends of mine and they dont talk about it out loud because most of them grow magic mushrooms and thats illegal here. Las year a guy got busted by the police here in BA with a huge amount of psilocibe production in his garage, so growers are sensitive about that.

I will try to track other growers through this forum (when I fully undestand how it works). Once I got a sopre print from a girl in Cordoba, but I dont have her contact any more because it was from a forum that now its colsed.
