Determining Spawn Ratio?
    #1266746 - 01/31/03 09:26 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I've looked and searched all over, but to no avail.

I'm going to start casing here shortly, but need a surefire way to determine what size pans/trays I should use.

Most everyone has agreed >10:1 is best. But how do I figure it out?

Its unclear of what you are asking, do you want the spawn ratio for colonized substrate to poo or straw, or are you asking how much casing to apply?

If it is spawning, 10 parts uncolonized to 1 part colonized is good, I'd go with 5 to 1, but that's just cause I like my poo to colonize quickly.

If its casing, I'd go with thickness of casing to thickness of substrate, for an inch of substrate, I'd apply a .5 to .75 inch casing layer.

Yeah... 5:1 ratio is what I do... the creepers colonzied it fully in 5 days!

Hey Skikid, isn't that alot of casing layer for substrate? I was told you put only 1/4th of the substrate thickness!!

I'm going to be casing my first tuppeware today. I got 4 full tuppewares of horse poo at various stages of colonization... so if I make a mistake with the casing on my first tuppeware I can make changes to the second tuppeware when it's ready to case. Also I helps me get the feel for patching!

Here's my biggest question, should I sterlize or pasteurize my casing mix??

I got a 50/50 + coir mix!

I think I'm reading too much.

I'm doing regular casing, 50/50 using Jiffy Mix. Bottom layer will be vermiculite, then crumbled cakes, then the casing itself.

I think I found what I wanted, but I was just asking to make sure:

"The thickness of the casing layer should relate to the depth of the substrate layer ( deeper substrate layer -> thicker casing)
The thickness of the casing layer should be around 1/4th of the substrate depth.
So if your substrate is 4 inches deep, the casing should be around 1 inch thick."

^^^ Does the above sound correct?

You both are correct with the 1/4 casing to 1 substrate, just 1/2 to 3/4 is my personal preference.


U4ia, so what your looking for is casing not spawning, they are two completely different things. Glad you got it straight now.

Thanks. After reading the majority of this UBB over the past few nights. I'm exhausted. I've confused a few other terms.

I start back up today. w00h00.

First time in about 5 years. Hope as I'm successful now with all these new ideas as I was with regular cakes.
