I'm getting pretty excited for the warm weather to come so I can grow outdoors.

I would certainly like to have some remote radio data loggers to gather environmental information right where the "wild ones" grow.....

 

Spring is coming for the north and fall for the south......outdoors growing is incredible....

 

Cubes LOVE some wet green shade outside....

I'd love to start a bed of Gymnopilus Luteofolius, as I'm sure they grow around the great lake state. Anyone know anything about these?

Others are talking about Gym's here https://mycotopia.ne...pilus-spp-grow/

Spring temperatures are good for cubes here. I have a flowerbed that can use mulch. I have three spent subs from test clones that I let rain spores. They are dried up but not contaminated. I was wondering if I could add them to the food processor with water, and soak straw in a thin slurry, drain and repeat with several 5 gallon buckets: of slurry treated straw. Then add that as a base layer of gulch instead north face of the house and top that with suppress much to hold it all in place . This bed gets a ton of runoff from the roof so the idea is raise the grade, beautify the front of the house, and let the odd flush of cubes pop up.

Can I do this without being overly sterile? Like, not at all sterile or pasteurized? To colonize straw in buckets or bins I’m going to have to have clean straw?

If it's going outside why be sterile? Sounds like overkill but I'm curious about your results.

I tend to just break it up by hand mix it up with straw, compost, and throw a shoebox ontop as a "humidity dome". Give it a good rinse for a few weeks and go from there.

I've occasionally done a lime pasteurization, but lately I just throw down my straw, throw snow on top, and hope the spring brings fruits.

It's always a race condition. Our work is to provide an environment in which the targeted/desired organism wins the race so to speak....just make a retirement home for your spent subs and check it every so often. Outside I tend to just add substrates and see what happens, see which fungi or other organism "wins".....

 

Just my own views of it....

I have a small patch of texas yellow cap in my balcony garden. It is made from two half pint jars shaken and burried in potting soil.

If it doesn't work I have a small mycobag of brown rice at about 80% colonization that I can make into a cake to burry if this bed doesn't work out.
