WHUT THE HELL IS WITH THE TRICH?!?!?!
    #2409902 - 03/09/04 04:12 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys, I'm asking for some advice. This is the 2nd batch of trich infested straw in the past 6 weeks. The only thing I can think of is either pasturizing the straw or the straw was left out to dry to long.
I pasturize at 180 degrees, let dryout in a container with a hole in the bottom. I try to keep it all as clean as possible. Bleach and so on. It sits in the box drying for 18 hours. And then I case it. Now do I just pyut plastic wrap right on top, and press down and leave like that, or can i put poly across the top of the case and poke a few holes in the top of the plastic. This is where I am lost. Simple answer, I hope.

Thanks guys

Peace all.

18 hours is a very long draining time, i only drain form 1 to 2 hours.
You can just place it in a clean bin bag when spawned, and hold the bag inplace with elastic bands.
poking some air holes is an ok idea, but using so sort of filter is better imho

I do this (click here) hope thats helpfull.

NIce werk Loki, I gunna give that a try. I do have filter disks I can glue on plastic.

As for spawn ratio, like grain to straw ratio? Maybe 1 part grain to 4 parts straw. I think my problem is to wet of straw.

Anyways, thanks guys.

My friend never likes to use straw just because of the possible contam issues. As for yours, drainage time should not affect it really, but moisture contnt can be a bitch with straw IMHO, like others said, try draining more.

Pasteurize straw> drain straw without exposure to the open air>Inoculate cooled straw with spawn of know cleanliness at high enough rates that the straw is completely colonized in under 7 days> once colonized case with a clean mixture of casing soil that has a Ph above 6.

All stages should be done with as little exposure to the open air as possible. Getting full colonization in under 7 days is very important, when dealing with non-filtered air situations.

Where I live Straw is one of the hardest substrates to work with. It contaminates alot if I can't get it completely colonized in under 7 days, and if I use casing soils that are not Ph adjusted above 6.

Any of the green molds can destroy straw casings quickly if allowed in. Via dirty spawn, dirty YOU, dirty Air, casing soil, dirty equipment or fruiting/incubating chambers and containers.

To me Straw is highly selctive FOR GREEN MOLDS as well as our intended Species. It isn't the easiest thing to grow on, until you have perfected techniques specific to YOURSELF and YOUR ENVIRONMENT.

Manure is the most forgiving of all the substrates, including GRAIN. IME, but it is also usually the hardest to come by, depending on your location.
