Questions about spawning...
    #1739509 - 07/22/03 09:59 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I have a few questions concerned spawning...

My first, how come when people are done with their pf cakes, they don't just use that as spawn and have the mycelia spread to whatever else?

Second questions is if I make 4 pf cakes and use the neglect tek, will i be able to crumble these cakes up and use them as spawn after their first flush?

One last thing, the instructions on syringe making said you can use about 1/5th of a good print for a 10cc syringe, if I use an entire print per syringe and use an entire syringe for a cake(lets say 1 pint), will this speed up colonization time? will this do anything?

Thanks for your time and knowledge :sun:

This would just be a waste of spores. It might also make the jar to wet and do the opposite of what you want.

On my friends first experience with bulk substrates he used spent PF cakes as spawn. It works, but whole grains require less labor and colonize much faster. He now uses WBS exclusively.

1. If they don't then they're dumb. Or have little or no space
2. Did it before, but contams set in pretty quickly but I was a little lax on my sterility.
