I thought I'd try something Visions style.
1st I filled my pillowcase with about 1lb of manure, added some lime no biggie. I let this mixture pasturize for about 90 minutes. Allowed to drain for 24 hours, also squeezed out all axcess moisture by hand.

Then I took my colonized rye ( South American) about a pint and mixed it thoroughly with the manure in the pillowcase. I then tied off the case and placed it into my incubation chamber, in this case the pot that I used for the pasturization.Replaced the lid.
Left it alone pretty much forgot about it and after a week here we are, maybe this'll work or maybe not but it's fun anyhow. Here's some preliminary pics. I have a crappy camera sorry.

Sharkie, very cool! I'll be watching this as well. I've been contemplating cotton materials also but haven't thought of a good way to incubate to keep it clean. I like that you put it back in the past. pot. I use a cooler so that may work to incubate it in as well.

Good work, hope it grows well :)

I'd think at least a week away. Some of the pillowcase seems colonize resistant. which makes me wonder if the case isn't 100% cotton.

Hellz yeah Sharkie, the sub inside looks damn good.

Interesting about the case, my thoughts would be the material dries out so makes colonization not as complete or slows it down. Just thinking though. :) Can't wait to see the mushies :)
