2 quarts of wbs spawn... best substrate to spawn to?
    #2111993 - 11/16/03 05:40 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

i got 2 quarts of wbs that are about a month ahead of my other spawn which when it comes around I will have enough spawn for whatever. My question is... what would be the most yielding choice for me to do with my spawn. I was originally planning poo and straw but than changed mind to try a straw log.. but I only have 2 quarts of spawn, what's my best bet for max yield potential in deciding where to mix my spawn in? thanks!

your best bet i think it to use aged horse manure. if you cannot get that, the next best would be a 10:1 mix of straw and manure, and if not that, a 10:1 mix of straw and compost. if not any of those, just use straight straw.

straw is good. it has good texture for this... poo, if not the right consistency, can get muddy, but if you get nice poo, i think poo is best. straw seems to be a little more prone to contams, perhaps because it doesn't contain as many beneficial organisms as poo or compost do... a mix of straw and poo or compost works well.

Straw and horse shit is the way to go.  :thumbup:

I usually spawn to 40 straw/60 compost. Its colinised quickly, and it makes for some deep blueuing :wink: I have yet to try straw though.

you want an organic compost with an NPK of .5,.5,.5

i just bought some "Composted cow manure with organic matter" and it says "0.0, 0.0, 0.5" on it, what exactly does that mean, and, is it still considered substrate?
