Spores will usually germinate on substrates that are simple and contain easy to use nutrients. They germinate readily on agar, flour, grains, etc. I think that they will germinate on straw, but possibly slower than alternate substrates.

The point of a bulk grow is to maximize speed and production. By inoculating straw you will cut down on speed. Take small steps, such as spores to grain and grain to straw.

It will most likely work if done properly, but will be less efficient and more prone to contamination.

Hi,
I read instructions, where they use sporewater for innoculation of straw. The more spore solution you use, the faster is the colonization. Spores need time to germinate.
I would use grain/WBS to spawn your straw... faster colonization, less chance for contaminants. Your straw is "supplemented" then, because the grain/WBS contains more nutrients for the shroom than plain straw, so you will get better results!
I hope I could help you. The instructions I wrote about are ~8MB-sized file. I need webspace! Anyone?
