bulk straw
    #2098917 - 11/12/03 10:24 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

ok first time attempt at bulk straw, Had to pasteurize in the pc which only holds half a big pillowcase so had to do seperate cooks, Second is currently cooling, and third and final will be started shortly. Have about 6 quarts of creeper WBS to spawn. Should a verm layer be placed at the bottom of the large tubberware? 3 drainage holes were put in the bottom. Should the straw be all mixed up with the WBS or is the layer technique better? When the plastic wrap is tucked in the sides and holes made throughout, should the tubberware lid be placed back on to ensure darkness or will that not allow enough air exchange, should a bubbler be hooked up, or is that not important during the colonizing period? Have a couple cinder blocks to way down the straw while it colonizes, not sure how thick it will be yet, hopefully at least 6 inches, any other helpful hints?

pasteurized in a pc? sounds more like sterilisation to me?

Don't try to mix the spawn and the straw, the spawn will fall through to the bottom. Use alternating thin layers of spawn and straw.

very little air exchange is needed for colonization. wrap in saran wrap and leave the lid on. co2 buildup is beneficial for the spawn run. definitely don't put the air bubbler in there during that time. it is usefull when you fruit as those big containers need lots of air exchange. in my last grow i fanned 4 or 5 times a day and i had a bubbler and there still wasn't enough air exchange (judging by the stems of the shrooms)
