Spawning question
    #1170987 - 12/26/02 08:26 AM (18 years, 7 months ago)

A friend of mine recently bought an ez-grow starter kit from homestead. It comes with a bag of rye berries and some sterilized poo. His rye berries are about 80% colonized and he is about ready to mix them with the poo. He also went out and bought a couple of pounds of whole wheat grain and soaked them for 24 hours and cooked them at 15 psi for an hour.

He wanted to know if once his rye berries were 100% colonized could he take 10% of the colonized berries and add them to the wheat grain instead of waiting to make spore prints from the shrooms he is about get from the kit.

Can this be done?
Is there too much of a risk for contamination?
Would he be better off going find some horse poo and pasteurizing it and splitting the rye bag in two?

He really doesn't want to wait to make spore prints to start his next project. Has any one ever done this? Any questions or comments would be great. And please give a little explanation to why this can or can't be done.

P.S. My friend knows he is an idiot for buying the kit and could have saved a lot of money doing some of the teks found on this site. He had his reasons for going the starter kit rout. Mainly he was afraid to have anything mushroom related shipped to his house and the local head shop only sold the starter kits.

Yes.  And what have you got to lose anyway (execpt a jar of sterilised grain and 10% of your colonised berries).  What you are describing is a grain to grain transfer.

As you say you could also just spawn some more poo(i.e spawn 2 bags rather than one.  your colonization time will increase a bit but hey you'll have more substrate at the end of it and increased your chances of success (egg all in one basket syndrome!)

good luck and be clean :wink:
