shroomgods strawtek help!
    #2288162 - 01/30/04 10:42 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

i have a question about shroomgods strawtek. it requires layers, alternating between straw and colonized WBS cake, for the substrate. it says fill a 35-45 gallon rubbermaid tub six inches with the layers. that is a cubic foot of substrate. now does that mean i need 13 quart jars of colonized WBS for the tub to get three inches of crumbled cake and three inches of straw? i dont want to think i need that much but to get a cubic foot of substrate the math comes out to 13 quarts of WBS. someone please give me some insightful help on my situation.

you should use more straw than spawn.....2 or 3qts should be enough spawn

You can use WBS if you want to, I use PF cakes to spawn my straw.
(4) 1/2pint jars would do a cubic foot of substrate. Blended to a fine powder and mixed in with your pasturized straw is fast as lightning and a whole lot less spawn is required. The smaller your particals of spawn are the more seperate spots it grows from. But if I was useing WBS to spawn straw I wouldnt layer it, I would crumble as small as you can and mix it in with the straw.

yeah mix it in if you can. that way theres more spawn points per cubic foot. and it should go faster that way

be sure to allow a spawn-rich top layer, and to tuck the frayed straw edges down.
good luck with that. it's a good tek  :thumbup:
