Take the lids off. You will want something bigger eventually, but they will work. use one layer of foil to innoc. through and another to cover.

I am new to casing but I just use some moist not wet vermiculite. Works well.

If you have a picture that's great. If it is a mold it will grow way faster than mycelium. And a good rule of thumb is anything but white is bad. Good luck

Just watch them closely because one day the caps aren't opening and the next day the are open. It happens fast.

Thanks for chiming in DUB. So as this is my first time doing anything but BRF cakes and one BRF case, you think I will have okay luck just casing the popcorn?

You can also let it grow as long as it keeps growing and then cut/scrape off the uncolonized parts and put the colonized peice in the FC. You may have some luck.

Cultivation / nuetrience in popcorn
« on: April 22, 2011, 04:28:23 PM »
gonna do my first popcorn jars for a casing. I was reading that fruits from popcorn can be weak from lack of neutrience. Can I mix in some BRF to help that out?

Hard to say. From a 1 pint jar I have gotten up to 15 grams dry in 3 flushes. Sometimes only about 8.

Also, the less you check on them and keep them in the dark the faster they will grow. I know it's tempting to check them all the time, but even if one gets a contam, It will not transfer to your other jars as long as you dont open it. Good luck

You need the PFtek. Brown rice flower cakes. No Pressure cooker needed, just a large pot to boil water in and the steam will steralize the substrate. Check out "lets grow mushrooms pftek 1-4" on youtube. Great videos. Do a little research and you will have some mushies in no time.

I have one of the simplest setups possable. I use a big clear plastic tote with about 3-4" of moist perlite. NO HOLES IN THE CHAMBER. Then I drop in a hydrometer in there. Then I fan and mist 2x a day. Good results.

Cultivation / Favorite substrates??

Hey guys, I finally got a pressure cooker, for free, from my town mall(the dump swap shop). It is small, but it is pretty much brand new. Want to up my tek from the BRF cakes I have been doing because I hear the yeild is better. What is everone's favorite substrates and teks to use with a pressure cooker? Thanks as always everyone.

Liquid Culture (LC) is made in order to have a jar of mycelium floating in water so you can use it to start grow projects. It will aso cononize the substrate faster than a spore print.

I have no idea what you should do. You can try the LC tek, and if it fails you will be no worse off. Go for it.

The only time I ever get contams is in the colonization period. I probably loose about 1 in 15 jars of my BRF cakes. I figure that isn't too bad considering I use a home made super simple glove box and sometimes have to rush my processes. Good luck, ditch the peroxide.

Try checking you tube. I saw a video of a guy growing indoors on cardboard. Also saw a guy growing them on a bible. take a look. Good luck.

Cultivation / Casing
« on: April 06, 2011, 01:36:22 PM »
Just did my first casing with a crumbled up 1pint brf cake and a layer of straight verm at feild capacity on top. I have noticed a vast array of different casing layer recipes. Is vermiculite a good enough layer on it's own? I had a great pinset for my first attempt at a casing, but I think I had too much moisture and the fruits dried up to be very light. Any suggesstions?
