You are really making me want to fruit something! Its been awhile since i actually fruited anything and im thinking maybe 100% straw with a thin coir moisture barrier. Your porn is dragging me back in! :)

Thats a healthy second flush Wharfrat!

I've been playing a microwave "tek" that uses field capacity straw and once colonized, just hitting it with verm and letting it fruit, I have one in the FC now..

i've had good success with straw logs fruited in an FC like cakes.. i used the skinnier food saver bags, packed spawn and straw in to them, colonized, then cut the bag off and fruit them in an FC. no casing required

i think i like to case them better..makes for a more uniform fruiting and keeps the myc from drying out too much.. just IME

My microwave "tek" uses tupperwares and I just pop the lid when ready to fruit, IMO it holds the moisture a little better and if it fruits underneath "invitro", I just pull the fruits..

My contamination rate always goes sky high when I use coffee grounds. I like to use a 50/50 mix of peat moss and horse poop. I've always had amazing flushes with it. Pin set is really good. The only to strains that I got mass fruits with is Mexican and golden teachers.

Nice wright Wharfrat.

Question. Is there any special way to prep the coffee grounds. Like soak them? Rinse them?

Or just use them after they cool down from making coffee?

Am I missing something here, you have colonized three or four different substrates, all sterilized, with only inert materials, or of slight nutritional value. Where is the myc getting it's nutes to grow out so many times?

I have or am just about done colonizing popcorn in a jar. 

I know what my problem is. I did an extra step I believe.

What I was thinking at the beginning is that I will colonize a jar of popcorn then poor some of it in separate

dishes of substraight to grow my mushrooms.

that's how it's done.. but your dishes/tubs might be small if you are only using one jar

just follow the Tek to a T.. once spawn is mixed, ten days minimum.. maybe 12.. once 100% colonized

the coffee

 

there is only 1 substrate, which is coir, and it does have slight nutes.. you only use enough verm to get to field capacity.. it's the coffee that provides most the nutes
