Has anybody had success using something like grain water to water the dirt where you plant subs?

I have, but they don't have that luxury in nature. Just provide some manure/compost, shade, water, maybe throw some leaves on top and call it a day.

I only get like a flush in my climate and it's rare as we usually have nights in the 40's and days over 80's.

I am hoping to get in on out door grows. I have a weird climate, though. In an arid desert zone, but with access to land that is close to the coast where the temperatures are milder and with a long wet monsoon season and sandy soil. I am hoping that I can get Tampanensis to go here. Since they are stone producers, maybe there is a chance.

I don't know if this is considered an Outdoor grow, but I accidently made a H P.E. sub too thick(Coco/Verm/Gypsum) and not enough Air to compensate and being a slow colonizer it trich'd out on me(Completely my fault at almost 6" unintentionally and not enough Air).  I opened it up outside to verify, it wasn't green yet, but it was close and I see the different looking droplets and the sub that isn't colonized.  Anyway, I put the one quart of sub in my Ivy up against the fence and covered it like a casing layer with really good recycled soil.  This was around the Middle of March and i am in zone 9.  3-4 weeks later I have all these mushrooms popping up wider than the sub so it definitely colonized further and spit out almost 3 Oz's.  Out of all the projects I've done this year, I thought this one was the coolest taking a contaminated sub and turning it into an Outdoor project that has produced some beautiful outdoor fruits.  I planted the second one that is manure based right next to it, that tub already gave up 3 flushes so who knows...   :meditate:

I have been trying to establish outdoor beds of Azures and Cyans for a couple years and finally have a few pins developing in a bed of what IIRC are ps. cyans. It has been almost 2 weeks since I first saw pins and they still haven't gotten to the point where the caps have opened. What kind of timeframe is typical for these to develop? I don't want to leave them until they go bad, but also don't want to pick them way too early in my excitement.

Frost has held off (barely), and they are still going. So slow, though. The second pic is over 2 weeks from pinning.

So here's a ?

How to encourage an outdoor bed to fully colonize the available sub before fruiting?

I started a bed a few weeks ago, with some slightly. Contaminated subs, covered them in compost/manure, and watering as neede- been seeing mycellium begin colonizing the surface in one area for a few days, but then vfirst pin today...


Should I have covered the zone with a trashbag to encourage higher CO2?
