Yo! My gf just bought me one of these for just this purpose. She also got me these scissors for harvesting
I found it. There's only one seller on Amazon that sells this stuff
Edit: only one seller that sells this exact brand and packaging
Cooked sweetcorn typically has too much water. You should have put up a photo of the back if there is nutritional information, which will give an idea of water content.
I have grown on tinned sweetcorn before, I put it in a jar and microwaved it to drive off moisture. If you weigh the corn and jar you can calculate how much water should be boiled off to get to your desired level of hydration.
I can see a similar one here and it has too much water https://www.flipkart.com/supa-corn-sweet-pack-6-900-g/p/itme8b2ecc2c898d
Yep, that's the heater! Has been working for half a year now perfectly.
Here's the temperature controller I use with it.
For the tubs, HEREis the exact tub I use. They're way better than shoeboxes because they're taller, and $1 each.
They pair perfectly with the associated IKEA lid which is $0.60, and CLEAR! why doesn't anyone make clear lids for tubs?
I would highly recommend these tubs for 1-2 bags of Uncle Bens. They will be the official recommended tubs when I post my official write-up to this subreddit.
25 bucks on amazon!

Its just a tent I got on Amazon that sits on its side on a table with a space heater under it. I love it so much, I don’t have to worry about contam almost at all, I have only lost a few bags out of 12 and it was just to wet rot. Nothing extra in the tent either, no inline fan or filters just the tent and the space heater under it. I thought FAE would be a problem but so far it is not
>I will probably also use up my mason jars, so I will grind some up to save space.
First timer here, but might i suggest a (food) vacpack machine? You can get them fairly cheap, and the bags come in rolls so you can make custom sizes, vacpack in portions, they're sealed and will last much longer.
Bags are cheap.
I'm only using the first tier right now, will step it up if need be
11 lb for a little over $2 a pound
Edit: although I realize it might not be economical for a lot of people, a reciprocating saw will definitely be your best friend.
Thanks! My best advice for noobs is:
1. Mist gently with a good water mister (I use this one: Beautify Beauties Flairosol Hair... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GRD5WLD?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share)
2. Be as sterile as you can. Nitrile gloves and 70% rubbing alcohol are essential.
3. Lots of patience.
Mush love to everyone! 🍄❤️🙏
Yeah, I wouldn't recommend that for misting. You need something that will aerosolize the water droplets. This makes big drops and you need tiny ones or you'll get pooling. Something kinda like this is better because it's mists gently and continuously for tiny little droplets, almost like an aerosol can.
But that fan might come in handy if you happen to already have that spray bottle with you.
Hey, just adding on here, if you didn't see it in the guide (you should read the full uncle Ben tek guide before you ever start) then I highly recommend this heater: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074MX8VN5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1&pldnSite=1 - cheap, effective. Combine it with this temp controller: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00V4TJR00/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1&pldnSite=1 these are the ones recommended in the guide and I also use these. They're a cheap combo, an inexpensive way to keep a small space properly heated for inoculation.

I like the 3.5 oz cups, they aren't as deep as the 4 oz, but they are wider than the 2 oz. It gives the mycelium a little more room to spread out than the 2 oz.

I have that same scale. I don’t think it’s ideal for our purposes because it’s not particularly sensitive. It’s great as a kitchen scale but definitely not ideal for relatively small amounts of mushrooms.
You want the universal drug user scale
I used these. I like them because they change colors when they’re completely saturated with moisture
I used these. They’re cool because they have these yellow beads that turn green when they reach absorption capacity. Then you can just microwave them to dry them again.
A lot of those inexpensive LED strips are the right color temps. Most will advertise “daylight” and color temp. I purchased these and they work like a charm

The inside of the bags should be sterile, so if you wiped the outside of the bags you should be okay with not wiping your scissors, but like I said, there is no such thing as overkill. It sounds like with all the steps you took flame sterilization is a bad idea because of how flammable iso is. The .5 cc isn't set in stone. Too much fluid is detrimental, and there can be hundreds to thousands of spores in less than .5 cc, so even if you used less in some they may germinate, .5cc is just a good balance. You should be optimistic, but not discouraged if you didn't succeed.

This is not needed but it does work and get more power out of fans. I use this for fans and standard phone charger for led's right now. It works fine switched around but then the lights are a little brighter and the fans have a little less power. Still works fine. I might pick up a second one so both run at 6.7v if I think the lights need to be a little brighter. I don't know anything about leds but it would be nice if there was a 12v phone charger type block to get the full power out of leds.
Very I would say. Good rule of thumb is if anything in that bag touches the tape there's a good chance it's toast.
Look up chip clip method, Ive done this way every time and so far so good. I use these ones right here
Having a thermometer is handy, but the best way to know for sure is with a temperature datalogger. I have one of these off amazon, but I'm waiting for the price to come back closer to what I paid to order another.
This will let you keep tabs on the temps even when you can't check.
If you're in the ideal incubation range (mid-70s to 80ish F), and it's stable, then yeah, it's a good spot. Much warmer, and you risk contam growing faster than the mycelium.
If it's high-60s-to-mid-70s F, then it's more ideal as a fruiting chamber, but will still work.
And if you follow the guide, you should have good success no matter what variety of cube you grow.
the fan is the cheapest fan I could find that delivers the CFS I needed. It is a centrifugal in line fan made for grow tents.

This is what I bought, I haven't used it yet, still just using 100% coir, but I do plan to, eventually. Vermiculite is a mineral, I don't think quality matters so much as grain size, you want it fairly fine for mushroom substrate. Vermiculite adds no nutrition, but it is a sterile moisture sponge for the mycelium to draw from. A lot of experienced growers swear by it, though, so I do plan to work it into my tek soon.
The standard Coir/Verm recipe is 1 brick of coir (650g or so), 2 or 3 dry quarts of vermiculite, and optionally a bit of gypsum as well (some say a 1/4 cup, I'd say 1/8th of a cup is more than plenty). Gypsum is literally just calcium and sulphur, and it also acts as a pH buffer. Pasteurize with about a gallon of boiling water in a bucket. Adjust water level to field capacity when it cools.
I'll be using a pillow case to make mixing/squeezing to field capacity easier.
This is enough substrate for one monotub (55-66 quart), and you would want to use 3-6 quarts of spawn for that much substrate and that big of a tub.
Or it'll do a handful of shoeboxes, 1-3 bens bags per 4-6qt shoebox tub. I'm fruiting three bags out of a 6q shoebox now, actually, 100% coir though.
Whatever size bin you decide to do, aim for a 2-4inch cake at the bottom of your bin, and you want roughly half that cake to be grain spawn.
I picked up these small curved pruning scissors. Perfect of sliding them down the side, SNIP, then use the curved little beak to pull them out. Works pretty good but I'm going to try a liner next time to force all of that energy up into some healthy monsters.
i found some new fangled "chip clips" that actually slide across the entire bag that i'm using to be even more dilligent about contaminates.
I break up the uncle bens bag without opening it and try to get most of the rice down to the bottom. Then i slide one of these across the top, then cut the corner and tape it. I don't think there's a better way right now.
5 bricks $29
I've always had several tubs to make, so the bricks of coir made sense to me. You can also re dehydrate the coir and it will be loose for your next grow, but it does take a few hours. I've also just needed it to re case a couple tubs and stuck one end in some water to take what I needed and the heat from by the window dried it back out in a day.
Each brick is about 16qts worth of coir.

I use this to monitor my temperatures, (the price got jacked up, I paid about $20 for it, maybe wait for prime day or after), but there are models that track RH as well.
This is the light Im using. Originally used it for my seeds for my garden, was done with it just in time for starting this process. I love it, it has a timer and I just set it for 12 hr cycles. Clipped it onto a shelf in my closet.
My tent is 40cmx40cm, but there are green supports beam inside: those reduce space to 37cmx37cm so I had to choose a shelf smaller than 37x37 (mine is a 36x30x110 cm, i had to bent its foot a little to make it fit) .
I used this modular shelf https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GDR3HHG/ref=twister_B07PKTNHV2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

I just ordered these jars (the same used by lit-logistics in his agar intro vid). And I order my agar blend from Tip of the Cap Mushrooms off etsy.
What I love about this hobby is that you can be as hands-on for as much of the process as you want, or you can outsource a step or two to make things easier. I'll let someone else make the perfect fungal agar blend, I'd rather not have to deal with measuring messy powders.

Amazon also have a 3 pack for $6.59 next day shipping but I had to really dig around their website to find. Here's the link - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0010OSIHW/ref=ppx\_yo\_dt\_b\_asin\_title\_o03\_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Before I wtched the YouTube video and learned about these jars, I ordered a set of 5 glass Petri dishes. So grateful I got to return them and order these instead way easier and far more cost efficient especially since the dishes needed parafilm.
Yeah I have a really old version like this scale that goes to 0.001g that seems to work well for me.
Paper bag in the fridge works, but is rather slow. A week or two to get cracker-dry.

By the way - not saying the Broke Boi tek isn't good or anything, but I notice you have a pretty nice tent setup going. If you can spare an extra $100 I would highly recommend just getting one of these. It makes sterilizing jars/agar so much easier, and I have yet to have any contam issues since switching from the broke boi tek.
I bought these
So far they look to be doing just as well as the rice. The quinoa is actually growing mycelium more consistently and one of my lentil bags has actually been my fastest grower so yeah I see no issue with going ahead with the link you sent! As long as the salt content and water content isn't too high then most of these microwavable grains should be good.
You can also try putting small containers like the red cups behind your door using something like over the door rack.

Are you intending on using it for a dessicant drying chamber or long term storage? For a drying chamber I recommend DampRid, but make sure the fruits are separated from the dessicant by a paper towel or something. For long term storage use something food safe like this.
What you have pictured might work for a drying chamber but I don't have experience using it.
I have several and these 2 are my favorite...
The multiple slide trays are awesome, you can space the trays however you need, both are adjustable temps and time settings.
Your time will vary based on how much you load, area you live in and the mushrooms themselves, so as long as it needs to be cracker dry, 6-12 hours usually.
Ohhh yeah, definitely. Might I suggest buying one of these?
Its a humidity controller. Essentially you run the sensor into your tub and you plug your reptilian mister into the humidity controller. When the sensor sees the humidity is too low, it turns thr mister on. When it gets to the humidity you want it to be at, it turns the mister off.

I personally like this brand and highly recommend the double decimal. Like the other guy said, nickel weighs 5.g and bills weigh 1gram, good way to make sure your scale is working properly. Everybody reacts different but a 1g difference could be the difference between you being in control and not being in control. Scales are very necessary for this type of stuff.

I've had pretty good luck with these bricks
Best advice I can give is to get one of these:
Rather than guessing min and max temps it allows you to track accurately.
If you think it is getting to 30C then that is 86F which is the very top end of recommended temps and might lead to myc death, my airing cupboard never gets above 82F (I am in the UK but have switched to using Fahrenheit for my grows since that is the commonly used standard). If you get a min/max thermometer you might find it is actually lower and you're always within range, in which case problem solved.
If your temps are getting too high then just lower your heating a bit and don't tell your wife/significant other!
My airing cupboard is also 30% humidity which is the biggest issue with using it, however I work from home and have plenty of time to spray through the day and monitor so not an issue for me.
If you decide to use the airing cupboard and aren't around to monitor humidity then a large translucent/transparent bag, with air filters if possible, might be a good workaround. Put soaked perlite at the bottom and keep your tubs in there to solve the humidity issue.
Feel free to fire any more questions my way, I'm by no means an expert but have had to think through a lot of these problens with this bloody cold winter coming in!
Also got a lot of general UK advice and tips if you need ideas on where to get supplies etc.
Best of luck with the grow space hunt, looking forward to seeing some bountiful harvests soon! Mush love <3
You can get a nice temperature controller for ~$30 off Amazon - Set your desired temp range, plug space heater into the controller, and wallah! I’m currently using two of these models; one for colonizing, another for fruiting, and they’ve worked great

No they don't, that's pretty much your option. The only other thing they have that similar is basically the same thing but half as tall. They're great, look nice and cheap. Go grab one, could still probably put it to use. If you want something that may be more suited to your size container then I'd check this out.
I personally use distilled but I’ve used tap water in a pinch to mist and to soak. I’m lucky to live somewhere with very clean tap water...if you don’t or have hard water, go with distilled. A gallon is like 89 cents at the store. But yeah one of those fine misters works great, definitely recommend over a normal mist/spray bottle. You want a beauty/hair spray type or “flairosol” type mister.
Not sure if I can add a link, but here’s the one I have and it’s perfect
Do you have a plug/outlet in the closet? I’m looking at heaters and considered the one you bought, but ultimately chose not to do it because it has to be plugged in directly at the wall.

I got a massive industrial sized bag of coarse verm for cheap off amazon. People say medium is best, but coarse works fine for me.
Here's the link.. I haven't even scratched the surface of this bag, it'll probably last me years. If you want it finer it's not like you can't toss it in a blender or mortar.

Thanks! My first grow ever and I'm pretty excited. I made some mistakes, but it seems to be going alright so far!

However, after digging some more im not sure that they will work as I wanted. What do you think?
I used the capri sun method and used .75cc in each bag. I did some bags with hole punch and some with corner cut. I think the hole punch method worked better as I had a hard time taping corners. The contam'd bags I had were corner cut probably due to not being taped well.
Also I bought this hole punch. I did not flame sterilize it, but did keep it in a cup of alcohol in between uses. I only did 2 GE holes completely through the bag (one in each corner).

I might be wrong, but your substrate looked pretty dry from the pictures. Did you rehydrate your substrate overnight after harvesting? Mushrooms take in a lot of water from the substrate so it needs to be rehydrated for each subsequent flush.

I own the 16-quart version of this one. Works extremely well and can fit 16 pint jars in it.
If water pools then I get a paper towel and barely touch the pool of water to soak it up, you're aiming for thousands of tiny beads of water across the surface. Then crack the lid an inch or so. Don't use a sprayer, use a hair mister for better results when spraying. Good rule of thumb is if you think you didn't mist enough, you probably did so stop. lol.
