Second one.

The casing mix were made of pine cone powder and vermiculite.

They were very huge and fat, very delicious too.

did you have to buffer your substrate since you used spent coffee and pine cone powder? like did you anything to bring the ph to normal or did you just let it go?

I used the magnesium hydroxe to correct the pH.

If buffer means "to trow water with a machine that makes it in particles" yes.
I always check the casing layer humidity and when it is dry i buffer some mineral neutral pH water.

After every flush i buffer water in my terrarium casings too.

how do you pasteurize your substrate? or do you?
nice grow by the way!:thumbup:

I do not pasteurize it, just normal microwave sterilization.

This one was sterelized at the microwave for 8 minutes, the coco coir for the substrate and the pine cone powder for the casing mix.

I'm testing some other ways of sterelization, just in case of beein without a pressure can.

And because i dont have a good termometer to pasteurizes it aproprietly too.

I have been using the microwave to sterelizes casing mixes and agar cultures, with a sucess range of 90% .

Coffe is a seletive growing media, it seems to turn harder to contaminants to act. I think microwave is ok to sterelizes this substrate in particular.

But i have been testing the same process to normal substrates, like pf, or wheat, and the contaminations percentage in then are very considerable.

One pasteurization I've done with success time and time again was to load whatever I was pasteurizing into quart jars. You put those jars in a pot with water about half to three fourths the way up the jars. Slowly bring the water to a boil and when it starts boiling turn off the stove, cover the pot and let the jars sit in the hot water for 1.5 hours. Rodger Rabbit shared this way with me and I've had much luck with it. No pressure cooker needed, just jars and a big pot. Of course this isn't great for pasteurizing a ton of substrate but it gets the job done.

Nice pics and shrooms. :D
