Hey guys and gals! So, lately I have had the pleasure of LEGALLY be able to hunt for shrooms. And occasionally, some are found in poop that are completely covered in good healthy mycelium. When I do come across them, ill bag the dung and take it home, to get the last few flushes of fruit. I bring it to my shed, usually between 75-95 degrees Fahrenheit, and 75%-85% RH. I have a regular led house bulb on a 6 hour timer, and a oscillating fan, that’s set to comes on 3 times a day, for 15 minutes.
But… Unfortunately though, all good things must come to an end. Now I’m left with poop that no longer grows even the mycelium. With shrooms being a fungus, and a fungus being a decomposed by nature, does the mycelium die because it has consumed all the nutrients? Or does a decomposing organism even need nutrients to survive? I don’t think that a ppm meter would be effective to measure runoff, as there being too many factors. With it being older (as shrooms don’t grow in fresh dung) it doesn’t smell. Has anyone tried growing pot in the older poop that hasn’t been mixed with soil? Maybe a perlite mix, flush the hell out of it, bake it to sterilize and use it in place of coco?
