Unshredded Straw?
    #11194004 - 10/06/09 04:00 PM (8 years, 10 months ago)

Hello. Recently I made up a double tub with 9 brf z strain half pints. I used about 20% straw with my hpoo. When I was shoveling the shit, the straw got mixed in, and it didnt get shredded too well. The double tub is colonizing beautifully. Although, when I look in, I see straw stabbing up in some parts. Is this bad? Will it be difficult for the mycellium to colonize the straw rising up,inviting contams?



P.S. Z strain kicks ass. It is so fast and strong, by far my favorite so far.

not quting but RR says something to the effect of 1-3" is so the myc can colonize the inside of the straw.

i use a large tub and a weed whacker ( mega-cuisenart ) works great. :super:

I agree with this as well. You have to be real clean when you work with straw. Be prepared to loose some of your trays. Keep a watchful eye so that you can get contams out of your grow area.

So if I'm to trim it, should I wait till my first harvest? I ask because the double tub tek says not to open except on harvests.
