birdseed sprouts in bulk substrate
    #1065924 - 11/19/02 12:28 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

The birdseed spawn started sprouting out of the wormcasting and straw bulk substrate. Is this anything to worry about? I searched but found nothing.Is this a common problem? Should they be picked out before casing?

leave them till you case
hell you could leave them even if you case.
they don`t cause any problems.
Remembering though you are growing mushrooms so you don`t really want anything else growing in the same container.

That is freaking hilarious. I have been using birdseed for a while and i have never seen that happen.

it is more likely the sprouts came from the straw you pasturized, or even the worm castings. if the seed was sterilized, it cannot sprout.

I've had the same thing happen several times - a little green sprout sticking up out of my casing. I think the above poster is correct - probably the bulk substrate, rather than the spawn. I have seen this with seed and grain, with the common denominators being wheat straw and scotts/verm mix.

Slightly off topic but - A few weeks ago I found a piece of tape I had cut to cover a hole on a lid but didn't use sitting behind my sink...  Apparently in my rye seed jar filling frenzy I managed to spill a few seeds on the piece of tape.  It sat behind my sink for about 5 days before I found the piece of tape...  When I found it there were 3 inch long blades of grass growing right off the piece of tape, I'd say about 15 to 20 of them...  It was then I knew I had some really good freakin rye seed!  :grin:

If you have other species of vegitation growing in your substrate , than you did not sterilize properly . The process should kill off the viability of other seeds , spores , etc ... I would work on that sterilization or pasturization technique , before it gets out of control . At least you know you have a nutrient rich base . Also pick whatever crap grows , you do not want it consuming nutes before mushies get a chance use them . :tongue:
