Straw question?
    #2479342 - 03/27/04 11:20 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I am going to start an Eq straw grow tomorrow and I have 6 qts of Eq on WBS super colonized. I want to know how much of the WBS I should use if I make a 6-10" thick layer of straw. How thick should the straw layers between spreading the wbs be? How much wbs per layer?

Thanks!

my foaf just figures out how much substrate he wants to spawn, then does the math from there.
for instance, using the 1:5 ratio recommended in TMC by Stamets, he puts 10 quarts of his straw/dung mix for ever 2 quarts of substrate. This ratio allows for fast colinization
he just does a rough job spreading out the straw/dung and the substrate evenly in his containers...doesn't really see the need to get all precise with it...

I have 370 ml of colonized birdseed ready to spawn some pasteurized straw ... How much straw should i use for 370 ml of colonized material ???

I was thinking about a container this dimensions - 35 cm x 20 cm , and about 4-5 cm high ... I would fill this half fith straw and colonized birdseed and later when it gets colonized , put some peat ( with Ph stabilizator ) to case ...

What do you think about that ... please help ... ill spawn tommorow !!

14 x 8 inches by 2 inches high if my cm conversion is right so your only laying a 2 inch substrate in a 14 x8 container with 370ml = Half qt that would be bare minimal id go with atleast 1 qt 900ml

Thanks a lot everyone. Can I just say that the more straw the better, as long as I use an ample amount of WBS? Since I have 6 quarts I might make it pretty thick. Thanks for the feedback!

Edit: My WBS is VERY colonized. If I cannot break it up by shaking/hitting, is it ok to break up with a sterile spoon?

Thank you very much, an excellent idea! I am starting right now. I pasturized my straw last night and then bagged it, hopefully that will be fine.
