Mix spawn with substrate or layer it ?
    #14764140 - 07/13/11 08:37 PM (9 years, 9 months ago)

So im just wondering i have some foil trays that i plan on fruiting my shroom in and when it comes time to put my coir/verm substraite in should i mix the spawn with the substraite or should i layer it like a casing layer. half inch substraite then spawn then more substraight ?

Mix your spawn with the substrate. Follow Damion5050's Tek its a good tek to follow and tells you exactly how to do everything.

yup, you prep the same way but you put your substrate/spawn mix into several trays instead of 1 big tub. :scaryshroom::thumbup:

I figure mixing well spreads out the inoc. points further apart, giving them all substrate to colonize, which makes for faster colonization. when layering, you do not take full advantage of all your inoc points. This is only my opinion however, you'll get shrooms doing either.

I plan to do some mini dubtubs in the near future. How do you all mix up your bulk and grains when doing multiple FCs via one large mix?

Thanks for the feedback :smile:

I mean mix up the sub. with your favored spawn ration in one tub and then put half in the other? I use 1:3 btw.

I do 1:2 or 1:1 for big 1st flushes but 1:3 is the norm :super:


I mix everything (spawn&sub @ 1:2) in a bucket then put it all in a mono or divide it into trays/bowls/tupperware whatever. :thumbup:

I mix my substrate and spawn, fill my tub, then put about a centimeter of substrate without grains in, over the top. This is to prevent exposed grains on the surface drying out causing a possibility contams will move in.
