can you use an old casing to spawn straw/dung?
    #1902119 - 09/10/03 02:14 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

If someone had an old casing that had been fruiting for some time, but was slowing down, and was definitely not contamed, would it be recommended to use it to spawn a straw/dung setup? or is it better to use fresh grain spawn?

if so, why?

thanks

An old casing will work but the chance of contamination would be higher. Fresh grain spawn will colonize a new substrate much faster thus narrowing the window for contams. There's also the possiblity of the old casing harboring unseen nasties.

that's a good use for it. of course newer would be better, but unless you have too much spawn, use that old substrate! feed the old man!

agree with Shirley.... If you choose a healthy part and transfer the organizm with sterilized stuff, it should do fine... IMO of course...
