this is my first post. I'm working with some wild p. Ovoideocystidiata mycelium I pulled off a woodchip pile. I had some fantastic photos but I must have deleted them by accident. I put stem butts and wood chips from the pile on cardboard for a week or two. Then followed waylits tek with a bleach soak of some hickory smoker chips. Layered the carboard and butts in between soaked chips. They have been running for about a month now.

I started seeking some chips with green spots pretty early on, but the tub isn't over run my it. What do you do if you wood chip tub gets green mold? Im assuming trichoderma

If the tub gets too bad with it, move them back outdoors after a good colonization:)

Then youd have your own patch to keep dumping mulch on for a while to come!

Also plenty of further opportunities for experimenting

That is where they are headed anyway. I'm waiting for some fresh chips to be delivered then soak them, then its going into a pot along with a fern. The rest will go into some guerrilla beds somewhere

Yep, generally you can just pick them out and the absolute worst case is go back to the outdoors......I did not have any luck with bleach personally so I like pasteurization of wood chips.......160F to 170F for at least three hours, four is better.

 

Let them soak overnight to hydrate and then drain for a day (I drip dry in an old pillow case) THEN pasteurize them and again drip dry for a day......I try to germinate anything that already on them and then kill it before feeding to a tub or bed...

 

Killer name but I'm not typing that out every time I want to talk with you.......hahahahaha OVOID......... :biggrin:

 

Ovoids are very interesting mushrooms.....IME

Arathu, that sounds a lot like Tyndallization. I think Tyndallization repeats the process over a three day period. Id need a bigger pot, but i like that idea. Thanks.

Just don't take it to boiling like you would with tyndallization, as you are only trying to pasteurise, and you do not want to kill the beneficial bacteria.  Like Arathu said 160 - 170F.

 

I realize that you probably already understood this, but I thought the it was stated in a way that others who didn't already know might not catch it, so please forgive me for pointing out what might have been a foregone conclusion for you.

 

Peace, and good grow vibes :)
