My last grow went south since temps in the northeast were hellish.
99 degrees for a few days . so i dumped my cakes , straw pillow and casings out in my compost pile. added some more staw and composted pooo. mixed it up and let it go. temps cooled a bit after a cold front came threw with a few storms. so this morning i go out to toss coffee grownds on the new pile and look what i found popping up out of the ground ! first time this ever worked for me ! not much but hay , what the heck ! nice find if only on so far !:headbang: do ya think i might get a few more ? lots of sub below the dirt !

yea i hope so. the cap as you can see has a hole in it. not sure why. maybe bugs ? it's the fattest PE i have ever gotten to grow. outdoor grows rock ! plus all the added nutrients
looking foreward to see more sprout up since indoor grows are done for the summer !

good luck-might spread some DiatomacEous earth and pest traps nearby so you get the crop, not the slugs.

i just did the same myself with some oakridge and orrisa. they werent spent but were growing agonizingly slow so i put them outdoors. i have 3 small clusters growing, they seem to be maturing slowly but that was the prob in the first place. good luck

Try to keep the top layer moist, and cover w/ some dry leaves or straw or something very loose and airy to shade and protect the developing pins. Yours looks mulched already, but I've found a thicker layer helps even more.

Outdoor patches can handle a lot more water than indoor so unless it's raining about an inch a week, a good soaking with a hose helps IME. Don't blast it with the hose of course, but simulating a gentle rain on it for awhile is good.

When I toss my spent substrates outside, I wrap them in window screen gathered up at the top so I can get in to pick the shrooms. I put the bundle in a shady spot and cover it with a loose layer of dry leaves for camo and shade, and water as needed.

Once you see some big fat pins coming up, watch the patch closely. Check it every few hours, since outdoor mushrooms can mature extremely quickly. You see a nice big pin in the morning, then late that afternoon you return to find a wide-open cap and everything blackened with spores and the mushroom starting to get soft. Pick outdoor mushrooms early rather than late, in other words. Less buggy, too.

Hope more come up for ya!

Na tee. that is a seed from the tree above. You got me excited at first , lol.
TV thank you for the advice. Yea i try to keep it moist on top and add loose grass clippings as i can. I did get a bag of "dia earth" as hip suggested . Temps in the mid to low 70's for the next couple of days with chance of showers each day . So i sprinkle the "D" earth when it gets wet to keep away the slugs. But i do have fungus nats hanging around also. I have some fungus nat killer, organic. but it's used to kill when in larva stage when in the soil. don't wanna use that and risk damage to the mycil under the ground. So I might put some window screen to form a tent to protect from fllying pest's. This guy is slow to mature. i'm thinking because of warmer weather from the start and the last two nights dropped down to the mid to high 50's. I think he will need to be picked soon ! Any suggestions on how to pick not to cause too much damage to the under ground network ? Just twist untill it comes loose ? I did read the wild mushroom hunters guide thred ! but forget what it said about that !
