For your convenience Out-Grow has made an all in one manure based mushroom grow bag substrate to simplify the mushroom cultivation process. This all in one grow bag has different layers of substrates so there is no need to transfer substrates to different bags or trays thus reducing the chance of contamination. The all in one grow bag is horse manure based for all dung loving gourmet mushroom species. Fully hydrated and sterilized with a five micron filter patch and self healing injection port. Simply inoculate the rye berry layer of the substrate with 2-5 cc of your favorite gourmet mushroom spore solution. After inoculation allow your all in one bag to colonize in room temps for 4-6 weeks until your first flush of mushrooms. Mixing the bag once after 50% colonization is optional and can increase colonization times. These bags hold three pounds (about four quarts of substrate) which is much more substrate than the competition offers.
I innoculated 3 bags of All in One Mushroom (Manure Based) with active liquid cultures. One grew beautifully...very impressive. Two out of the three are still NO GROWTH after two innoculations over 25 days. I am not sure if I have done something wrong. The two no-growth bags continue to look perfect as though they just arrived. I love the concept. The bags look beautiful. I don't know if I will retry then because they are extremely expensive if you have to buy three to get one to grow. Any advice other may have will be appreciated.
