adding more spawm to monotub after 1 week
    #11294563 - 10/21/09 09:17 PM (8 years, 10 months ago)

yea i know ratio wasnt good but i only had 2 pints grain jars and spawned one each per 64 q tub in straight coir, as i thought it didnt do much so i added about 10 pints per tub a week after and mixed it all good.  you guys think i should be optimistic ?

as long as your spawn was clean

straight coir is contam resistant.. it will be fine.. i spawned at a 1:8 ratio with no issues

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

i checked what was there, it had made some kind of myc. balls, cause i had left the jars too long and it became hard like rubber, so couldnt seperate grains, so i made chunks, well didnt colonize enough surface matter, as i broke them up to inspect before investing 20 pint jars everything looked fine, smelled great , just wondering if it will turn up.  has been a while and decided to give it one last go before i go back to work  :smile:  oh yeah, and instead of 4 two inch holes on either side, i put 6 1.5 inch holes and one on each of the other extremities.

high spawn ratios are not suggested.. 1:6 is max for most people (i use 1:8 all the tine)

the reason i said its not suggested is

there is a chance you can unknowingly
mix contams into an otherwise perfectly healthy sub

as for spawn ratio i use a 1:2 to 1:3
reason being the more spawn you have
the faster the sub will colonize

thus giving less time for contams to set in

r u serious ?  when i search 64 q monotubs i see people spawn like 4 to 8 quarts and get mad results, ive always opted for a smaller spawn ration to sorta stretch what i got, but noticed i wasnt getting anywhere, and after seeing many successfull tubs with high ratio spawn, i figured i was being cheap so when i saw things werent good enough i threw everything in there.  but ive never heard of anyone re-spawning their tubs,  thus the reason for this post.

i was stuck using tropical potting soil cuz i couldnt find anything else and now that i found coco coir i hope this one goes well. got 5g dry off fucking soil, but figured was better to try my jars than to throw them out when i say compost was unavailable due to an appraoching winter.

anyway thanks for the replies although very minimal.

thanks

thanks, thats why i threw it all in aswell, wheni saw all wasnt lost i figured ehh might aswell.  cuz i recieved 5 b+ from sporeworks today, shipped by ups, very disappointed tho, package was ripped, e verything was wet and one of 5 syringes was broken into pieces as if it had been stepped on, and the glass they ship with it for -microscopy- was shattered to shits.

dunno why but first 2 attempts was with b+ and had sick results, now was stuck with pura vida and eq, fuck all, of course with the soil!
