Hey guys.

So I'm doing my third grow and I've been pretty successful so far. I was wondering if anyone has tried some sort of Miracle Grow or other sort of nutrients for mushrooms. I've been looking around online but I haven't been able to find anything. Thanks

Mushrooms are decomposers. They dont use nutrients like plants do.  By following any of the tek making your substrate, you have made a miracle grow mix for mushrooms.

Carbons and starch-sugars, I believe? You can find the info out there, not nutes as you know them though. But as stated the sub teks are already providing all of that. You could go ham and fine tune your sub to milligrams using research info if you wanted perfection but it's completely not worth it. The other variables, rh, fae, temp, evap, will play the largest role. Perfecting your sub and double subbing and such aid in how many flushes you get, and won't promise big clusters of monster mush like miracle gro makes tomato plants explode. The common sub teks here will give multiple flushes, and unless youre in this hobby for more than the fruit, the extra time double subbing (using a nutrient rich casing, basically using sub as casing) takes and maximizing flushes per jars probably isn't worth it. Fine tune your environment if you're looking to for something to adjust to produce more. Hope my minirant was related to things you were looking for.... Lol

Whuuuuut

Interesting, I started thinking about this diatomaceous earth I have here today, I wonder if the nutrients would do anything for speed or size of growth when mixed in a sub or even just in casing....

I have thought of adding a little amylase to the grain soaking water and holding 145 for an hour. This will convert starches to simple sugars.  Experiments for the future when I understand mycology WHY better.  I have also thought of trying malted grain. If you are interested in trying it now, amylase enzyme can be found in brew shops and online. Personally I want to try and mimic natural conditions first then experiment.

      I'm new to this site and new to growing as well. I am using a mail order grow- kit and I am at the spawning stage, 14 days in and I'm worried that I've killed it by overheating my grow room. The space heater I was using was wildly inaccurate and I think was pumping up the temperature to above 30°C for over a week. I have a new heater now and it is set at 28°C and it appears I am completely free of contamination however I only have about 15 to 20% mycellium spawn throughout the straw substrate and would like to get an opinion on whether I've killed things or if I've just delayed growth. The growth that is there looks healthy but I have not seen much progress lately.

      Thanks for the info. So I went on and tried to create 2 jars of LC. One with maple syrup and one with honey. I did them just like the instructions on this forum and was as careful as possible not to get contamination like sterilising the needle after each injection and so on. The jars you see in the picture are for more than 20 days ago if you look really close there are some tiny strings are visible in there but I'm not sure if it's mycelium. And the two jars of grains are a mix of grains and wild bird seed. It's been 5 days since I injected them with spore syringe but there is no sign of mycelium, not even a green mold of contamination. The syringe is b+ from Avalon . I'm thinking maybe I've got pure water inside a syringe. Give me some hope guys it's really frostrating to see the only hope of fun I had is going nowhere.😑😑😑 I don't even care about taking shrooms I just want to see mycelium grow... Btw I've been keeping the jars in a room temperature in the dark of course.

      Now that you have pins I would cut back on the fanning.  When my mush stays small, it's usually a lack of FAE. My setup is ultra low tek. I start sgfc with the holes taped up on sides and top. After I get pins I untape some/most of the holes to adjust FAE. It's kind of bootleg, but it's working for me at the moment. I usually average 3g per cake, per flush.    Congrats on getting those to finally pop.

      Thank you for the library of information & community! Questions regarding the Mush Zombie 60 qt monotub: During the "spawn to tub" (Section 3) 1)Do the holes need to be in place at this point? 2)Would it be ok to have the trash bag fully encapsulate the environment or does there need to be sufficient air exchange at this point? 3)If this is an issue during day 1 of 10 incubation, should one open the tub once a day to provide fresh air, or will it be ok for this 10 day period? The tub is in a 81*F bath (Cold House) & placed inside another tub to float on top. If all is good great, otherwise any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Again!
