I am attempting to grow several kinds of edible mushrooms for the first
time. I started from spores, and now have several pure cultures w/o
contamination. I transferred the cultures to testubes filled with
birdseed for spawn. The tubes have been incubated and are ready to be
used in inoculation of the compost (composted cow manure).
QUESTION 1: How much spawn do I need for the compost (can I use just one
testube for 40 lbs of compost, and let it sit and spread)? 3: Do I have to
worry about contamination once the spawn is mixed with the compost? 3:
After (or before?) I have sucessfully grown the mushrooms, what is the
easiest way to inoculate additional compost (transfer from compost to
compost?), the easiest way to continue for volume growing?
*** Is there anything I'm overlooking? Everything has been too easy thus
Please E-Mail me with info.
