Wheat Straw Question
    #2123001 - 11/19/03 04:25 PM (13 years, 24 days ago)

First off... DAMN YOU PETCO!! BASTARDS. ok.
I bought wheat straw, pasteurized it, spawned it, than I ask the question when its too late. Oh well. I spawned the straw and it has a few of the seedling things still in it, someones telling me its going to cause contams for me, if there is a god please lemme get some shrooms... I have a lot of spawn mixed in so the spawn to substrate ratio is probally like 3:1 and there is a heavy topcoat of spawn over the whole shabang. Whaddya think guys?
This is what the things look like:

With such a high ratio of spawn to straw I would think that it should colonize quick enough to stave off any possible contams. As with any endevor there is always a potential for failure as well. I believe that you have a good chance to make it though this without problems, but only time will tell.

Good Luck

yeah, it usually has them in it, and they can be a problem and should be picked out....

I have a lot of spawn mixed in so the spawn to substrate ratio is probally like 3:1

do you mean that the other way around?

a 1:3 spawn to substrate?

either way, that's alot of spawn and it might help with any contam issues.

how long ago did you spawn it?

I always recommend using a 1:5 spawn ratio. REALLY fast colonization is the key to controlling contaminants. You should be fine.

I use a very high ratio of spawn to straw simply because I am particularly paranoid about contams and I want to ensure success right now because I can't just go and pick wild ones now that it's cold.

Anyway, what kind of a trade off in yields does evryone think that I'm getting due to a 1:2 or 3 spawn/straw ratio rather than a 1:5-10 ratio?
Just idle curiosity as I have already accepted the loss.

Bent -- I don't pick the seeds off -- too much work. You should be o.k. as long as you're careful, but yeah -- there's always a risk for contamination...

Ekstaza -- If you add 1:2 you should get a larger yield than just using spawn, but you have to decide if it's worth the time to pasteurize the straw....
