No verm..? no coir..? no problem...
Well at least so far , hee...Just for grins - 8 cakes made from peat and wheat flour then nocked up with Peruvian ms...growth is very dense and progressive and provides excellent contrast to the dark peat substrate...

What are the proportions of peat, flour? That cake look nice, nice contrast. Of course if you get any black mold in there you might miss it.

I used 4 cups wheat flour , 4 cups peat , 2 level tbsp of hydrated lime and
13/4 cups h2o....this is enough for a dozen jars....
The jars below are now at day 11...so they r growing pretty fast..
I injected thru the tin foil then replaced the lid loosely for some air exchange -there is no verm layer.....

Thanx...yeah cool thread from mnl...
I think it helps to pack loosely in the jars for faster colo + the 50% nutrient mix is helping too..
I plan to birth as cakes and DEC with more peat...
Half the jars are Tapalpa,,,I never even heard of Peruvians -got em in a trade....

nice work here, golly:)
</ wonders if this could be done without a PC
you limed the peat that made-up the cakes, right?
this is a crucial step in keepin contams at bay the 2 weeks in the jar,
as that canadian sphagnum peat moss is slightly acidic, which enables contams

great pics, keep the updates comin!:)

Faht, your jar tec is the bomb - i use it frequently for culture storage ,cloning and generating myc syringes...thanQ for that...U should repost it sometime....
Cap i add the lime primarily to give the mycelium a more friendly grow medium [less acidic]....I suppose these cakes could be made without a PC -like a PF cake...
We need to see how these fruit though b4 judging this as worthy method ,
sofar i'm impressed with the speed and density of the myc....thanx...

Update... now at day 23 from MS innoc...
first sighns of pinning now on the tapalpa peat cakes ,the peruvians are just about to pop ..
the rhizo's are invading the lime buffered peat and all 8 are healthy...
If i can get the first harvest in 26 days -that would be record time for me with cubes from spores....will update later...

wonder if it can take a dunk
without falling apart ?
how 'firm' is it ?
looks kinda fragile...
