how can you tell that what you have is straw and not hay once the spawn has already been added?

You should make sure you know what is what before you do anything.  Hay is made from alfalfa, straw is made from wheat.  One will work (straw), one won't.  Hopefully you have straw. :smirk:

Go to a feed shop and ask for "WHEAT straw". Its tan in color, some peices might be still a greenish tinge. Its what you see in say an old western movie or when you buy pumpkins...they have the pumpkins sitting on it. THe bail of straw, I donno, its easy to identifiy if you know what the differences are I suppose...

Look it up in google or something heh

that is the same kinda hay i use in Anno's pic and i dont know why ppl r saying
using it wont work!.  I've used it twice now and have had no problems whatsoever.  Just soak it in warm water and
snip it into tiny pieces. pasteurize the fucker and some poo too and u'll be surprised that what u have works just as good!
  dont throw it away jaidormi...it can be used as bulk substrate.
