Straw spawned with casing guts
    #1413214 - 03/27/03 05:49 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

OK, so Swim learned how to use straw and compost recently, got the necessary materials and got to cookin. He mixed equal parts chopped straw and compost together and pasturized it for about 1.75 hrs. After the stuff drained, it was time to put it to use. Swim knew that grainspawn was the best thing to use to get this stuff colonized but sadly he didnt have any. He found a small casing in his collection that had just had its first flush harvested. Since this was all he had, he cleaned the holy bejesus out of everything and dismantled the casing. He collected all the chunks of colonized pf style cakes and used them in the place of grainspawn. No about 2 weeks later, the straw stuff is showing a very small amount of happy growth on the surface. He knows this is slower than it would have been with grain but he will wait and see what happens.

Can anyone tell him if he should just wait it out? Or was the thing doomed from the part where used casings were used as spawn? Anyone done this beofre? Any advice?

Yay!!

Thank you! So what do you suppose is causing the slow colonization? I fear that the straw stuff was a bit too wet. But who knows....

The slow colonization could be from overly damp straw, but as long as it's growing your OK. Keep your incubation temps as near 85F as possible and wait it out.
