Growing Mushrooms Indoors in Soil

Recommended Posts


Hey y'all!

Just recently started growing Cubensis mushrooms the PF TEK method, I have 10 cakes running RN and I want to start Copelandia Cyanescense as well. I've checked a couple tutorials and bought all the recomended material - manure, cactus substrate and so on. Now that I'll have a lots of leftovers after making the Copelandia cakes, I was thinking if there is a way to use it for the Cubensis cakes somehow.

I used usual mixture of vermiculite and flour (I chose corn flour as it's easier to buy it where i live) in 250ml jars. They've been now growing for about 12 days and they're 3/4 colonised. 

My idea was to put the cakes in the manure mixed with wet verm and let them colonize a large container, then case them with cactus substrate and verm. Is this going to maximalize the fruiting? I haven't found any TEK like this but in my opinion the mycelum should have higher amount of nutrients then if I just put them in perlit and let them grow out. Anyone ever tried this? Do you have any recommendations for growing mushrooms this way?

Thanks for any response.

      3-23 The 2 remaining bags that had an extra quart of water puffed and tammed. This raises the question why?  While the 2 bags with 1/2 qt extra we're PCed with the other 3, they are fine at this point. I don't understand why. I would understand if the 3 we're soup(oversaturated) but having all 3 tam when they were PCed with the other 2 that are fine makes no sense. Something to mull over. Next set of bags will be done with MZ's soak and simmer method on Tuesday. At that time I will also take a peek at the first 4 bags that we're nocced 2 weeks ago with GT and LM. Yes I am aware that those species(?) use different grow teks. The LM I am just spawning for G2G to build up until I have enough for a decent crop once transferred to straw based sub.

      Trashed the 6 jars.    Decided to not wait the extra day and looked at the other 15 jars.  The 6 PE showed no signs of growth.   The 3 A+ showed some minor white but not enough to tell if it's mycelium starting or something else.   3 of the Jalisco appear to have the same signs of growth.   I marked the lids of those that showed growth and put them back into incubation.   At least maybe the rye wasn't treated with an anti-fungal?  Very slow growth at best compared to the myc in cakes at 14 days.  Maybe not enough surface moisture on the outside of the grain at the time of inoculation?  It's 79F in the closet but maybe not that warm in the box?   Inserted the digital thermometer probe into the box to see if there is any difference and put them back into the warm closet.   Now I'm thinking maybe the Tamp just didn't have enough time and I blew it by trashing them.  Glad I got back up plan C going starting tomorrow.   At least right now I have a positive sign of growth on 3 A+ and 3 Jalisco with hopes of the others showing something next week when I check again.   Increasing the closet temp to see if that helps.
