Calculators

Coco Coir / Vermiculite Calculator

This calculator is perfect for those who want to cultivate mushrooms in a monotub or shotgun fruiting chamber using a mixture of coco coir, vermiculite and gypsum. Just enter the dimensions of your fruiting chamber (the tub used to grow your mushrooms in), and scroll down for the results.  A written procedure for producing grain spawn can be viewed here, and a video of the process is here.  If you don't have a pressure cooker and prefer to use an instant pot to sterilize, the procedure is here.  I haven't developed the written procedure for the substrate yet, but the video is here
