Layering bulk substrates and spawn.
    #11322857 - 10/26/09 08:59 AM (8 years, 9 months ago)

I am just pasteurzing my bulk sub now with the plan of adding my colonized WBS jars to is tomorrow.

I was unsure of how to layer my FC.

I was thinking of a black lining on the Bottom of the FC.
Then a layer or moist verm.
On top of that a thin layer of coir hpoo mix.
Then my colonized mycelium.
Then a 4inch layer of hpoo/coir/coffee/verm bulk mix.

Will this be ok or am i going over the top?

Peace.

split your 4" of sub into 1" layers with spawn in between each layer.

dont bother with the bottom layer of verm.

Sounds like a monotub your doing. Using black trash bag to line the bottom and sides helps prevent side and bottom pinning. It should stick to the sub as it shrinks during the flush.

Pour a layer of bulk in the bottom, then a layer of spawn, shake the tub around to mix and repeat until you have the desired substrate level. Finish with a layer of bulk ontop to protect the exposed grains and level it off with a clean knife then back into colinising conditions.

I know it has been debated but I find mixing easier/safer to do than layering.

I pasteurize the sub in a plastic bag, then open and empty my jars directly into the bag, mix nicely the spawn and the sub, and then empty the bag in the tub.

Clean, and you sub is less exposed.

Just my noob opinion :wink:
