Man that is an awesome set up and the yields look great!

I have a question aimed towards some of the outdoor growers here. Will the spores released from the shrooms here keep the patch perpetual, or does the patch run out of nutrients?

The patch would eventually decompose into soil ...I think i could keep a plot going thru the whole summer if i continue to add more poo...But i dont think i could get the same production of fruit as i could with re-spawning into a fresh patch periodically...
I think that some spores would drop and grow to revitalize production ,but to what degree - I dunno....

Wicked cool, man! Gotta try it!
Here's my first outdoor experience. Stomped a couple spent, green PE cakes into an unused corner of the garden and here's what happened (2nd flush out there). Low res. pic, but you'll get the idea

Very cool... I'm a big fan of the no-see-um netting... Many, many uses.
You must have some bad-ass squirrels where you live.
The squirrels in my 'hood are happy with the bird feeder.
I love the steel-reinforced shroom bunker.
That should let the bastards know who's boss.

Nice save there Bugs...
A.S. yeah ,the steel mesh is a must for me..Sometimes when i walk out to the patch - the squirrel is sitting right on top of the dome..He def wants a slice of the pie...lol...

absolutely wonderful golly. I'll definetly be trying your technique. Temperate summer climate in my area seems prime for this kind of grow.
One question, did you notice any difference in the number / size of the mushrooms from generation to generation / flush to flush?

By the way, I think I found your boy. Want me to take em' out for ya?

Oh he's a cute li'l guy there - i would gladly trade for my local beasts...lol
The second flush was the most productive Shadow....
This is the 4th flush coming in now ...they are smaller than previous but welcome non the less...A new Amazonian grow ring is about to be spawned.
There should be about 12 more weeks left for outdoor cultivation time here.

Thanx Shadow....So to summerize; This patch was about 24" diameter and 2-4" inches deep ,produced about 130 grams dry over 30 days from multispore SA's....
As mentioned in the "outdoor Pan" post the lowest layers became too saturated and muddy to support healthy myc...So I'm sure production could be improved by adding more aerating type materiels to the sub...
Also by the 4th flush there was a high population of fungus gnats...I may use some kind of sticky trap next time around, so i can catch em early...
Any hoo -it was fun to share this thread with y'all...thankyou...:)
