something I've always wondered
    #1642666 - 06/18/03 05:33 PM (15 years, 8 days ago)

I've always been curious about this. Back in the day, before my friend began spawning dung, moisture content of substrate was important as it had to do directly w. the size of the flush. But now, when your making birdseed jars, can't u get away w. using a lot less water?? Because all ur worried about is the moisture content of the dung, as long as the mycelium colonizes the jar, ur going to be able to use the jar as spawn. A friend of a friend used to use 240 grams seed to 145 grams water. Recently, he tried using 130 grams water, the jars came out much less sticky and shake much easier w. no clumping. When using jars for spawn, just how much less water can u get away w. using. What would happen if u didn't use any water at all?? Does mycelium like water?? thanks for clarifying this for my friend!!!

I know mycelium likes water. You can grow mycelium floating in water if it's got enough nutrients in it. I've always found that the more water in the casing/cakes, the better the flush. I actually aim to get as much water as possible. I put water in until I have a little bit too much, so it's a bit 'muddy', then I add a tad extra vermiculite. This ensure the highest possible water content without having too much.
