Awesome recovery of that jar of spawn. Ye ol’ mushroom wizard has done it again.....  :meditate:


Where you away for a while? I haven't seen you around lately, if not I'm glad to see your post i have used the syringes you sent me years ago many times and have not broke a single one. Thank you. Also I still use the lids you sent me

The 6qt blocks are mostly HWFB with a little cacti soil and pinch of grains. The bulk has been PCed in 1/2 gallon jars. Probably put down a thin layer of bulk, then layer of crumbled myc block then more bulk? I have some more genetics working for outdoor beds. :)

I'll have to start a bag grow next. :)

If I'm enriching a woody substrate, with say wheat bran, then the PC is a must use....

 

But usually making beds and tubs or pots, pasteurizing the wood substrates for three to four hours (six if you can do it) is usually good...

 

In an old pillow case put into an old cooler, add hot water from a cauldron as necessary to keep it 160F, is what I use......then an overnight drip dry hanging in a tree......

 

I add soil to each layer right after putting the spawn down on top of the sub (like putting cheese on spaghetti, sprinkle it from the bag)

 

Then a new layer of wood chips, spawn, soil, and etc.....many other layers like straw and grasses, bagged mulch, woody stems, many kinds of chips, and etc.

First page of the thread........just an example, use the essence of how that is constructed with what you have.......

 

Papers, pulps, and cardboard also work.........keep them moist and out of the sun......

Carbon source: [Common Sugars], germinates and grows almost anything, almost everything can utilize it as carbon.
Carbon source: [Common Starch], germinates and grows almost anything, almost everything can utilize it as carbon.
Carbon source: [Plant Phenols], germinates and grows lignicolous organisms, which can utilize it as carbon.
 
Carbon source: [Cellulose], when complex it doesn't support germination, most fungi utilize it as carbon.

This is why I don't like adding wheat bran to wood (adds starch), you also need to spend more money on being aseptic.
I like to keep the complex cellulose, add nutrients, but no carbon sources, and use starch spawn.

https://www.planetna...king/c-n-ratio/ < Carbon-to-nitrogen ratio (25-30:1).

I'm using soluble fertilizer to add nutrients (nitrogen, potassium, so on), its cheap and effective.
I've done 1000's of open air grows with enriched paper pellets, without infections.

Very nice! Just paper pellets and liquid fertilizer, what strength are you mixing your liquid fert compared to package recommendations?

Cant remember, azures I think, might be cyans. They look the same like that, lol.

Recipes:
 
Lignicolous (wood-loving): 400-450g > Water | 100g > Paper Pellets | 50g > Wood Pellets | 6g > MG Nutrients | 0.72g > YN Nutrients.
General (most fungi): 325-375g > Water | 125g > Paper Pellets | 5g > MG Nutrients | 0.6g > YN Nutrients.
 
Optional: 2-8g > Ultra Fine Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3, 95-98%).
 
----
 
Basic assembly guide:
 
Using a jug, measure your additives, using boiling hot water, add the water needed.
Mix together using a clean fork, the solubles will dissolve automatically.
 
Measure your pellets into a bowl 5-6x bigger than the pellets.
Add the nutrient water to the pellets then mix-n-mash.

 

----

 

Microwave guide:
 
Tip: If you do not have a microwave pressure cooker, use a container that has a microwaveable lid, leave a gap.
 
Transfer the mush to the microwave pressure cooker, fairly loose, push down lightly when full.
Cook for 60+ seconds, mix for about 2 minutes, then cook again for 60+ seconds.

The recipe adds about 1.1% of nitrogen, this is about 45-50:1 as a carbon-to-nitrogen ratio (including any nitrogen present in the paper).

Aztecorum

Does anyone know if this has successfully been fruited and if so is there a log of this.

If that's the aztecorum that came from viridis420 it was originally labeled quebecensis; I believe some people have had success growing that using standard outdoor methods.
