Flax Seed Testimonial
    #1493758 - 04/25/03 05:33 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)


A word to cultivators:

if you are using a PF based substrate, i would suggest the addition of flax seed meal (ground flax seed).  I have found it to increase yields and potency to a substantial degree.  Its cheap and easy to use.  When mixing up your substrate just shake a little in, more or less, i havn't found the magic # yet, but thats something that can be left up to you...the cultivator.

things to avoid:

if you are using more water than usual in your substrate avoid putting to much flax seed in,  flax seed tends to clump up into a syrupy mess if to much water is added.

also you want to be sure that flax seed isn't one of your primary ingredients, its just an additive.


Overall i do notice an increased colonization speed and resistance to contamination when using flax seed, definatly something to consider :smile:

check this out, from the faq:  ryche hawke's substrate  - it works well, but slows down substantially at the end, when the grain-like basescannot get much air exchange. good, though  :laugh:

ive tried that substrate before, your right about it slowing at the end, i eventually just got contams (bacteria)

actually thats where i first heard of using Flax seed, so i added it to a standard PF cake, and BOOM!

i had one cake colonize in 7 days at 75 F, it was strange too, it was a PF race cake and the entire surface was covered in shrooms, not something you would expect from a strain know for aborts hey?  ive never had one quite like it though since then.  good luck? maybe :grin:
