Bulk straw grow log...first grow
    #11170080 - 10/02/09 03:59 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

hullo!  So I'm going to log my first grow ever...I just started a LC sunday so I will start posting pics as soon as things get going.

I plan to innoc. quart jars of rye grains (soaked in coffee), and spawn to wheat straw (in a 45-ish gallon sterilite tub).  I'm still contemplating whether or not to use a mixture of straw/worm casting compost as substrate, but I'm pretty set on just plain straw (and possibly coffee grounds), the main factor being the smell, as it will be in my closet.  Besides, I've seen many posts on here with great results from straw alone.

I ordered some amazonian and GT spores from ralphsters a couple weeks back, but they haven't arrived yet....so I bought a syringe of Z strain from a friend, and innoced some LC 5 days ago......it seems to be progressing fairly well.  My only worry is the genetics of the strain, as my friend has no idea where 'his friend' got it from lol.

I will start posting pics soon =)

Sep. 27th

LC was prepared - 3g dextrose, 3g malt extract, 200mL H20

___________

I've been peeking in every couple days, and after 6 days I am starting to notice a significant amount of little white specs floating around.  Since this is my first liquid culture, I didn't really know what to expect in terms of time, but it seems to be progressing fairly well.



You can faintly see these little specs floating around in my shitty pic.  At this rate, I hope to inoculate 14 quart jars by next sunday.  The LC has been incubating in a double-tub + aquarium heater setup @ approx. 83 degrees.

I have been putting more thought into my bulk substrate and I am now starting to consider a mixture of 7 parts straw, 2 parts worm casting, and 1 part verm+coffee grounds.  I just don't know if the consistency of this mixture will be desirable (or easy to work with).  Can anybody shed light on this?  Thanks =)
