Bagging Pellet Fuel Mushroom Substrate

Bagging pellet fuel mushroom substrate

Here I'm pouring inoculated, peroxide-treated pellet fuel substrate from a 5 gallon bucket into a fresh plastic "tall kitchen bag" supported by a cardboard box. In some cases, it may be more convenient to add spawn to the bags after filling, rather than before. And there are various alternatives to using bags, such as plastic buckets with loose fitting lids. Of course, some mushrooms may be grown in beds rather than in bags.

This is taken in my kitchen. No HEPA filters or glove box in sight. Jars of "Ten Minute Spawn" in the background. [Next]
