Spawning to Bulk and Fruiting * 14
    #20470129 - 08/24/14 10:44 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

This is part of my series "The Basics"

The spawning part is short and simple. It's so simple, there are very few teks because it's taken for granted that it's easy to picture in your mind. But, occasionally people ask about the actual spawning part of the teks, so I did a write-up.

Here, I will be showing how easy it is to spawn to bulk. Spawning to bulk is the act of taking your spawn and mixing it with a bulk substrate.

I will be mixing Rye Grain Spawn with CVG in a monotub.

First, I pour in my already prepared bulk substrate, in this case CVG. Then I pour in my spawn. I'm using 5 quart size jars, about 5/8 to 3/4 full, of GT and about 10 quarts of CVG for this write-up, that's about 2:1 sub:spawn. My spawn has been dunked. This all goes in the monotub.



Then, using gloved hands, I mix it all up real good and even and level it out. I don't pack it down. I find using the back of my hand to smooth it out keeps me from packing it down. Maybe it's a habit form concrete finishing. I wear a glove because I don't like digging the substrate out from under my fingernails later.

Mixed and leveled


After mixing and leveling, I use scissors to cut the plastic liner down to close to substrate depth. Leave a little extra if you plan to use a casing later. I won't be for this tub.


Liner is trimmed


I will use this thread to update the grow as it developed.

Lid is on, labeled, and ready to colonize. All the holes are covered and the imperfect lid will allow for GE. It's getting indirect light in the grow room.

Put in to fruiting conditions today


14 Days (6 days in fruiting)
There is a lot of knotting and a couple of pins. I fist saw knots a couple of days ago. There was some drying around the bottom holes so I turned off my fan yesterday and misted. My apologies for the time gap, It's been a very busy week.


17 Days (9 Days fruiting)
The day after the last pic, I felt the top of my sub was drying out too much, especially around the bottom holes. It turns out, my HVAC was creating a lot of air circulation in the room when it kicked on, so I covered the vent.

Then, I poured enough water on top of the sub to cover it, about 1/4" -1/2" of water and let it sit for about 5 hours. Then, I poured it off and sprayed the top with my kitchen sink sprayer to kind of wash it. I let the excess drain off. I did this by just tilting the tub. I didn't take the sub out. So, that was day before yesterday.

This is what it looks like now:


The areas around the bottom holes are still a little yellowish, but they are recovering and have pins forming now.

Let this be a lesson. Too much air circulation can be a bad thing.

20 days (12 Days Fruiting)

It looks like I may get some smaller fruits. It could be genetics and/or having to mess with it the other day. I turned my ceiling fan back on because of the fuzzy feet.

The colonizing speed is really awesome! Mine usually need 7-14 days (because I use a bit less spawn). How much spawn did u use?
