I wasn't really expecting anything to come from it, but I decided to bury one of my cakes that showed signs of contam after it was 100% colonized.  I found a nice shady, moist spot under a banana plant in some high-clay soil.  I topped with basic potting soil mix.  1 1/2 weeks later, voila!

You are truly magical MagickMan87 !

 

I advise this all of the time. Contaminants usually cannot withstand outdoor conditions and the fungi go on to do their thing - just like in a cow pasture. A contaminated project is not necessarily a loss. 

 

Way to apply what you know!

KickAss!

 

I've probably missed more outdoor grows than I can count - if I don't put it somewhere close where I can check, they'll pin, form, and dry / die before I ever see 'em - I've gotten smarter in my old age & put them close to my normal route  :)

Compost box mushrooms..lol. I don't think that tray was finished. I should've let it flush again but I'm in the middle of a home remodel and living with mom's for a bit. I've been running out of space. They grew pretty big and I'm not sure if the compost is adding nutrients or if it just flushed again. I picked them about 14 hours after that box picture. Temps have been running around 75 to 95 with 2 rains since I put the tray in there. 20180716_024713.jpg 20180716_120347.jpg 20180716_120426.jpg

NIce!

 

How do you keep your fingernails so neat?  Mine always look like I just deg myself out of a shallow grave.

 

You should spawn that entire box ...

I work in an ER and I'm always washing my hands! There's bugs and fungi there i definitely dont want to bring home!
Maybe that tray will colonize that box!

Gonna have to try that.

 

So just toss them in a shady spot and cover them with substrate and make sure they stay moist?

 

Do you break them up or anything?

I didn't break up the tray. I just dumped it into the box and covered it up with the compost. I'm not sure what was in that compost box though. I know some of it was old veggie scraps, walnut and pecan hulls..etc.
I made 2 other outdoor spots in my flower beds. I found a shady spot and dug 2 holes about 1.5ft deep. I mixed up another big batch of cow poo substrate and filled the holes with it. I buried the other 2 trays in them. I picked this fruit from one of those spots Friday. I tried to get a pic of it before I picked but the cap was too close to the ground. I couldn't get a decent shot.20180714_134418.jpg
And I don't know if the tray colonized the substrate or if it had another flush in it. I buried 2 of them after the 3rd flush and buried one today after a 4th flush.
