    I'm new to mycoligy ( growing shrooms)so I haven't had much experience in mushroom substrates other then using proven tek and subs, so I've read a lot on the subject and watched what videos that are on YouTube but no one really ventures away from brf or composts ...
    so I'm making this thread for the purpose of experimental substrate and tek...

    I'm goin to try another attempt at crack corn and rabbit shit.. the first jar I made colonized fast and was looking good then all of a sudden the corn turned into slime and must of had some yeast in the shit or something because it was fermenting.. so I'm taking a crack at it again.....


    all are welcome to contribute their experiments and tek.. this is an open thread..

    hmmm I'm thinking about taking my corn and turning it into flower and use it in replace of Brown rice flower.
    Anyone here ever try corn flower?
    thoughts?..

    I'm having success with crack corn on its own.. made a nice cake.. producing as we speak.. because of this I was thinking corn flower, but getting the starches out of it is my concern

    I have flexible air stones I was thinking of putting under my #3 chunky perlite but alge is my concern.. I have hydroton expanded clay but it's been used to death in my hydros so I'm not using it in fear of not cleaning it well enough..

    th is isn't a substrate experiment but an experiment never the less
    1102171046.jpg
    here I have a glass casserole dish with wet perlite, my cake is sitting on foil.. the foil under the casserole dish is to catch water from condensation.. 1102171047a.jpg
    here it is with a small terrarium over it keeping the humidity up.. no fanning is needed, just lift the terrarium off and the co2 leave and fresh air comes in.. maybe some misting from time to time.
    I seen on another site some one was doing this with a big clear tote but never followed up with his progress.. I opted for using just one cake instead of using a big tote with a few cakes..

    Hey just researched, seems algae wont hurt it. But if it shows up change water, rinse stones in 1/10 bleach water and rinse with boiling water.

    Yor using the foil to catch condensation droplets to soak into cake? Probly no good condensation on cakes causes bacterial and mold growth, from what i understand.

    no the cake is sitting on foil as a barrier between the perlite and cake. there's a piece of foil under the casserole dish to catch the driplets that fall down the side of the terrarium so it doesn't get on my table... no water sits on the cake..
