can i i do a bulk grow with brown rice flower and vermiculite as my substrate ? instead of going and getting cow poo or somthing? i have a bunch of vermiculite and BRF left over from my cakes.

As long as the container you put it in can fit in a pressure cooker I guess, be creative. I used a glass Pyrex Tupperware that was a fair size, I could fit 4 quart jars of brf mix with a layer or dry Verm on top. Used foil lid taped to the sides and holes taped with micropore tape. Then birthed the whole thing, (should have prolly cased it). It has given fatter than quart jar cake yields for sure. Here is a pic.

I nocced it with Brazil strain because ime its the fastest colonizing.

There are teks for it out there but it's very simple. U can use aluminum trays and inoculate with lc/ms syringe directly through the side of them then cover the holes with tape. U could also try inoculating a substrate mix directly in this manner (lc syringe would be best)

Play around with it and post it on here man!

Timely colonization is importiant, the size of the sub effects colonization time. If its to big and not enough points of inoculation,  stalling is a issue.

Yes, fast colonizing is the key, stalling leads to contamination ime.   I love brf as it was my first grow, but grains are superior because they provide multiple innoculation points. Imagine every grain is a tiny lc syringe that squirts the good stuff into the sub. I guess it would be easier still if you used a colonized jar of grain to noc the "bulk brf cake" instead of a regular syringe.

      After mixing together a bunch of wbs jars with substrate,I underestimated how much it would make, I've been trying to do away with the big monotubs because it's hard to hide so I've been doing bags ,well I ran out of spawn bags so i put the remainder of my spawn in 4 one gallon ziplock bags that i cut a hole in and taped tyvlek to. The problem is the substrate is 4 inches thick in these one gallon bags . I let them colonize for 12 days, during the spawn run the mycelium went nuts , it even grew through the tyvlek patch , its strong and healthy looking growing up the sides of the bags , and it's already pinning. The thing is  I cant  possibly see how it could work with the bags being so full of substrate , I was just kind of rushed and didnt want to waste anything so I threw it in bags not really expecting it to work . The bags are so healthy looking I hate to throw them out , but I'm not sure what to do . Any suggestions? Two of my bags are just verm and the other two are cmc, coir ,and verm... any help would be greatly appreciated ... thank you

      I just ordered the 23 quart presto pressure cooker. Does anyone use this type for sterilizing jars or bags? I’m thrilled that I can start doing my own substrates now but I’ve never used a PC before is it pretty easy?

      Pulled a gallon bag of substrate out of the freezer.   I'm going to spawn some of the Jalisco jars this next week.   See what happens.

      So today was a busy day! Transfered ropey strands from the fully colonized GT and KSSS bags to Petri dishes, really hope that some beautiful ropey myc comes of it.  Dycorotic and rizomorphic growth is beautiful.Just a quick peek of a Thai strand going into the dish before we finished up there and went on to start setting up the tubs to spawn to substrate 1 to 3 ratio. This is the Golden Teacher just placed and not spread out yet, ready to be foil wrapped and moved into incubation for 10 days.Volcano at around 10 days and will be getting the casing put over as well today along with two others to be shown later on this day. A wonderful picture of the inside of the greenhouse with what we have started and growing bigger everyday lol. And the final picture showing the humidifier and fan in working order. Would always be welcome to any ideas or different ways to look at things in getting them to grow better! Thank you
