is depth all its cracked up to be?
    #1618049 - 06/08/03 12:06 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

im asking this some what repetitive question just to make sure. at walmart they have two types of cat litter bowes. one in about 2-1/2 or 3 inches deep,the other an inch and a 1/2 bigger.what im asking is using bulk substrate, such as 50-25-25
horse poo-straw-cow poo. would my yeild be drastically less? i mean it would colonize faster in a little smaler of a container,because of less substrate ? so what im wondering is how much of i difference if im trying to get bulk yeilds

bigger and deeper is better for yeild, but like you said more substrate won't colonize as fast.i guess it's a toss up man what ever you want i think that i would use at least the 3 inch but i like more than that like 4 or 5

But what will a deeper depth do? More shrooms or bigger ones? Would it only effect post 1st flushes? Becuase I know some people who use straw throw out after a first flush on straw.

deeper usually means more flushes.

straw being an exception.

also, the number of shrooms that will be present rely on your pinset initiations and the square footage area on top. the size of your shrooms and how many flushes you get out of it depend on how deep it is. the deeper the better=huge shrooms that keep coming and coming...go with the deepest container possible, but stay under a foot lol. also you colonization time does not depend on the amount of poo you are spawning to it depends on the amount of spawn used-the more-the faster

actually it depends on both if i use less spawn (saves money) it takes longer to do more than it would to do less. it works both ways you just said the opposite.we are both right. well deeper i gues it is.

IMHO, depth is where it is at!
Jim can't believe he "wasted" his time with those Al bread pans!
Depth can be an issue if you are filling it with colonized grain .... a lot of eggs in one basket as they say. If you go bulk, it only takes longer to colonize the containers (i.e. add a week and a half colonization time for the bulk... you will have the grain colonization period regardless)... BTW ... the forest green window boxes make nice containers -- opaque and Jim can stuff about 7-8" of compost/straw into them allowing a 1.5" casing layer!

coool but what im askin is will the increase be that noticible. im not worried about the amount of flushes i want big fruits with smallest BULK amount of substrate used. i know that it needs to be deep to make fruits pretty big but what im asking is how deep should it be to get optimal fruits size and numbers, without using a whole crap load of poo. i mean i dont think and i could certainly be wrong, that mushrooms could get drastically bigger between a 4 in tray and a 5 in tray. nore do i think the number of pin to drastically increase. i know that the nutrients would help more of the pins reach maturity. so i guess its a never ending debate well shucksssssssssssss

well, let me try and solve it for you. the increase in yield will be noticable, because as you know the deeper you go, the better. since you can use the same amount of spawn for the container one inch deeper, why not do it?? poo is free or next to it. the optimal numbers are layed out for bulk subs and 8", if i remember correctly is the numbe rquoted in TMC. one inch could make a big difference if you compare casing sizes that you have probly done-a 3 inch layer yields more than a 1 or two inch layer. like i said before the NUMBER of pins has nothing to do with the depth of substrate and will not have a relation to it. so...deeper is better and go with the 5" tray.
