Quick bulk subtrate question
    #11339806 - 10/28/09 06:10 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I am going to prepare some bulk substrate tonight.

I currently only have one quart of colonized WBS, more will be available in a week or so. But for now i have a quart at my disposal. I am going to make a grain LC first then spawn immediately to my bulk substrate. I was originally going to do a tradition CCV but I have more ingredients at my disposal.

I have (all of which is store bought) organic compost, cow manure, coir, vermiculite, coffee, and gypsum. I am going to get some worm castings and blood meal for the future but those aren't available atm. So my here are my two questions...

Provided my materials I have start with, what should the ratios be? I see many different answers and none are all using the same stuff I am.

Also, given that I only have one quart of spawn to start with, what would be the starting value to base all the other percentages? (I don't want to end up with a shitload of wasted bulk substrate because I am limited one quart of grain spawn right now.)

Yeah, I have already thought about this. I realize that is the most logical way but I was thinking a little differently.

My thoughts were fruit this quart jar of spawn to test my SGFC and to try to get fruits up as soon as possible. I have 2 dozen more jar a week or two behind, along with agar cultures, and LC's. By the time those colonize, I could have a small try colonized ready to pin...then I would do more G2G. I was really wanting an isolate or clone before doing a lot of transfers. It seems silly to colonize a shitload of spawn that you don't even know how it will perform. That's just my logic anyway.

If others say it's not worth spawning a 1qt jar to make 3-4qts of bulk substrate, then I will just do the G2G. But I was really wanting to make a small tray.

your spawn ratio would be 5 to 1...

5 parts bulk substrate to 1 part colonized grain.
