They should be fine. Rice flour is rice flour. Not sure about the vermiculite cause I haven’t used that brand but I’m pretty sure the only difference is coarse or fine.

Bobs red mill should be fine. I use anthonys brf off amazon and coarse vermiculite and have never had a problem growing. Is you problem with the fruiting stage or the initial colonization of mycelium. Also, your problem could be with your spores if the mycelium isnt being seen. where did you get them?

Coarse Vermiculite, 4 cubic foot bag https://www.amazon.c...op_mob_ap_share

I’ve recently moved to whole oats so don’t use BRF as much. But I’ve used that brand and ground my own.

I really don’t thing those are the issue. Both should be solid.

More info would be great and we can probably get you going.

 

Neither of the products you mention, are your culprit.

 

Peace

I was looking at your other post. Did the mycelium ever grow at all?
You had a pic with a birthed cake so I’m assuming it did. It looked like it was just sitting on a paper plate. What is your fruiting chamber situation.

Yeah, I figured it probably was my spores.  I can't even get mycelum to grow.    I got them from an online vendor I should throw out names cuz I'm not sure if it was me or them.  I contacted them and they are sending me two new syringes.  Does Arizona heat of 100+ wreck spores?  Online I have read that it doesn't cause a problem.

 

I have new spores coming in from an online vendor. Do you know if they are better?

Here is after 5 weeks.  I am tossing some jars because I have new spores coming in.  Can you see the globs between the vermiculite?  Is that mycelium colonization, or contamination? It has changed in weeks from this stage.

That is a colonized cake. I may be wrong but from the picture I don’t seee any colonization. I am also in AZ and haven’t had any issues.

i believe stagreen is much like miracle grow as they add fertilizer to the amendments like perlite and have seen some in vermiculite if they add fertilizer it normally says on the bag, think that is federal law

I looked online before responding. I couldn’t find that info anywhere. Not saying it isn’t true though.

Here is my vermiculite sta-green. It says 100% vermiculite. Is this not a good brand?
