PF jars and Straw
    #2325234 - 02/11/04 07:26 PM (13 years, 17 days ago)

Here's the plan:
1) using:
a. 4 colonized pf jars
b. about an equal proportion of paturized straw
c. a tray 8x12 and 6" deep
2) mix 3 of the jars broken up (really small pieces) with the straw into the tray
3) put the remaining pf jar broken up on top
4) cover with saran wrap... tucked in tight on top of the substrate/spawn
5) put in an incubator at around 83 degrees F
6) wait for complete colonization and then case... put in terrarium ect...

Does that sound like it should work? Problems? Advise?
This will be the first spawning attempt, so paranoia is high, as is insecurity.
This will probly be done by the end of this week, so it would be nice to know if its not gonna work out right (based on these parameters)

Mostly worried about the ratio of straw to pf jars and temp in incubator (shroomgod's tek says it generates its own heat).

sterility is key
you might want to think about spliting it up into 4 smaller trays so if one contams you still have 3 left. plus you could put in different ratios of cake and straw to find the one that works best for you. if your massive tray contams your going to cry but i bet you learned somthing. good luck.

4 half pint jars is massive?
i didnt really think about it like that...
so perhaps a 2 half pints of spawn with about as much straw would be safer? (eggs-per-basket-wise)

just generally speaking... is 1:1 ratio for spawn:substrate gonna be too much or too little spawn?

You could safely go with lets say 1:5. Use a cheese grater, works wonderfully

I'd say fuck straw in PF style jars. It isn't terribly "nutritious" and it has many contam problems IMHO.

1:1 is great, the colinization time of the substrate will be three days at most.

hey man, it works great, i know from experience.  i used 2 half-pints in a 12" x 18" pan. did 4 of them, not a single contam, took about 1 week to colonize.  :thumbup:
