    Jars:
    Rye berrys
    Popcorn
    Brown rice flower
    Wild bird seed
    Vermiculite

    Substrate:
    Cow manure
    Horse manure
    Wormcastings
    Coco coir
    Vermiculite
    Straw
    Orchid bark

    This is a modified pf tek id like to try
    The ingredients of the pf cakes are:

    1 cup dry vermiculite

    1 cup store bought manure/humus mix

    1 cup water

    1 cup whole brown rice (ground to flour with a coffee grinder after measuring)

    1/2 cup worm castings

    1 tablespoon used coffee grounds

    1 teaspoon gypsum

    the depth of you sub and moisture I believe is what will give you the largest yielding shrooms ... but I believe the manure based subs will give you more potent shrooms.. just my opinion..and from what I've experienced so far... I'm very much a noob still ..

    I'm growing the KOH SAMUI..not sure if that Makes a difference..lol.. but so far I've had the biggest shrooms come from a 2" 1/2 - 3" deep sub.. which will hold more moisture.. depending on the ratio it was mixed.. I mix mine with slightly less vermiculite because of all the little bits of wood chips and bark (which are full of moisture) that's in my compost .. I try keeping humidity as high as I can .. I'm finding it tougher to do in the winter so I'm fanning less.. my compost is a mix of leaves,grass,yard waste,rabbit poop, chicken poop.

    optimum humidity is 100% or as close as you can get to it..
    you can play around with the
    depth of the sub.. all the biggest shrooms I've seen came out of tubs with a fairly deep sub..

    I have heard that horse poo is the best sub possible...

    fresh air exchange is a must. As in, dont cover the fruiting chamber holes up when pinning/fruiting and air stones in a cup of water help. I notice a leap from yielding many skinny caps to a few large/thicker caps and in turn bigger yield that is also easier to clean.
