Regular Compared to Chopped Straw
    #2421085 - 03/11/04 11:51 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Is chopping the straw necessary? If so, why? Does it make a dramatic difference if you didnt?

Colonization will be faster with chopped straw because mycelium mostly colonizes straw from the inside (notice that straw is a cylinder with a hole in the middle, like a drinking straw).

By cutting the straw in 1-3 inches pieces, there's a lot more doors available for mycelium to get in. At least, that's how I see it.

I wouldn't say a dramatic difference but at least 25% faster . That's a rough guess..
