Need some help w/ starting a bulk grow.
    #2552129 - 04/12/04 07:56 PM (10 years, 3 months ago)

Just went out and got a 10 gallon rubbermaid container to do a bulk grow in. Ive got 2 small grain mycobags fully colonized which i plan on using with just straw. What I am still puzzled on is..

-How much straw should I use?
-Would 2 small grain mycobags be enough?
-Is a 10 gallon container ok, or should i move up to the 18 gallon? (the Sterlite brand from Wal-Mart)

Thanks for help.

I'm looking into starting my first bulk grow, and I was wondering what are the pros/cons of using just poo or just straw? I've been looking around the bulk grow sections, but I'm at a loss as to which is the "best" technique.

If anyone could give me some advice (as to which technique I should use to get the biggest flushes and most potent fruits, and sorry, I know you've heard that before) I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Just wanted to ask these 2 ?'s again.

-Would 2 small grain mycobags be enough?
-Is a 10 gallon container ok, or should i move up to the 18 gallon? (the Sterlite brand from Wal-Mart)

Thanks for help.

ya that will be fine but if you want potent and bigger shrooms go with poo (horse if possible) if you can get some.
start with a ten then go bigger later
no need to jump the gun
plus you have 2 small grain bags so a 10 gallon will work just fine

Your spawn should be at least 10% volume per substrate (the more spawn, the shorter the spawn run). So, I guess intermediate algebra stuff will determine how much sub and which container size to go w/ in the future :wink:.

Hey thanks for the tips.  Finally got around to doing it last night.  I used the 10 gallon with 2 small grain mycobags of spawn.  When i tried chopping the mycellium in the blender it wouldnt completely chop up so i broke up the rest by hand.  I followed one of the bulk teks, i think Shroomgod's, by laying down one layer of straw, then a layer of substrate, etc.  I think i might of used to little straw though because i still had a bunch of straw left after using up all the substrate.  Anyways..  I feel pretty good about this though, but the only thing im concerned about is contams  :thumbdown: .

I like horseshit and straw, topped with a layer of horseshit, for growing. I pick first flush, then take lid off mister and drowned that fucker with h2o, then open a bag of verm. cover with a bit under 3/8" layer of it, then I soak that by dribbling h2o on it and misting. Here is part of a flush from three days ago:




I wish you the best with your own attempts.

Just remember to use 4-6 inches of substrate. I used these aluminum pans that you can get that are about 2 inches deep, and the mushrooms I got where really small. Il never do that again!

Sraight straw usually is more susceptible to contams and nutrient loss. A mix of poo and straw is the best and most attainable method.
