pf tek spawned to straw...
    #2184898 - 12/17/03 11:01 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Just as the post says I am going to experiment spawning straw with very fine crumbled brown rice cakes and was wondering if anyone can give me some input if they have tried it before. I have searched the faqs all morning but cant find it anywhere. peace and luv

It'll work.  Basically you can use cakes as spawn to the substrate of your choice :wink:

Edited to say good luck :laugh:

you'll first have to pasteurize your straw. teks abound, search the site, straw grows some pretty large fruits regardless of strain, but its nutrient span is limited, I suggest mixing in some poo as well, but isn't neccessary.

I'm about to try it too.

Got 2 jars ready, and one experimental plastic container (the kind lunch meat comes in) almost ready. No contams on the plastic container!

I've got 2 kinds of straw I gathered after halloween, so I'll do one jar with each. I'm gonna try hot water/lime soak to pasteurize the straw, and will likely put in plastic ziplock bags at first till the straw's colonized.

I'll let you know how it goes.

suze

This is the first time I ever did bulk.And it was spawned with one half pint to elephant shit.I still do it that way cause I never have cakes contam where as grain seems to be more work and contam easier.I use grain just not that often.Just break it up by hand.Fuck the grater.Just more work.About the size of marbles or slightly smaller is perfect.PF Stroph.by the way(some growin' ass mother fuckers!)

Thanx for all replies people! I just got back from the pet store with a bag of Hay-Kob that has alfa bits an chews in it I hope this works. My hydro store doesnt carry straw. While I was walking back from getting Korns new release I came up with an idea. I have never grew cakes before only casings so I thought i would pasteurise my hay-kob and tightly wrap it neatly around with jute twine and use the straw effect to supply added H20 to the cakes later on in fruiting. I will cover with a thin layer of cococoir once the mycellium has completly colonised the hay-kob. Any comments on this idea I would luv to hear them. I have Thailand koh samuis ready first to try this and just received my Pes-hawaians and Pes-amazonians today and will be making 10 half pints of each later tonight. Icurrently have 74 half pint jars of samuis (13 left to finish fully colonising). Until later cheers every one Im off to see Lord of the rings and will be having a blast chewing 5 grams on the subway on the way to the theatre.
peace and luv

EMPIRE

lemme guess you've never actually grated? not only is it easier but its faster than breaking up the cakes with your hands not to mention you get many more spawn points

Let ME guess.Your a tool or like to do more work.I grated for many months and found it easier and faster colinizing.Grating (in my case) causes slower col. 'cause of the heat it produces.BUT then again I have a high spawning rate also.Plus I don't like cleaning graters.Now I use gloves then throw away after.
