next set of trays
    #25028672 - 02/28/18 02:35 PM (3 years, 2 months ago)

So my next set I cheese gratered BRF cakes and mixed with a pound of Outgrow soil. Filled tray to with a 1/4" then topped off with a coir/coffee ground substrate mix. 10 days later I see nothing happining on top except what appears to be a bit of green mold with a couple smaller than dime size myc spots. I lightly scraped the top layer off and it all crumbled away very easily. Under that layer is established very well as far as substance, I can tell it's one solid unit. There is still a dusting of the substrate it didn't like as I didn't want to scrape the top layer of myc.... I'll give it a day and see what happens. Thought about rinsing that top layer but worried about the water pushing some down around the liner and causing more problems.

It was the coffee you added to the coir casing that had the trich IMO.  Unless your spawn was dirty.

Just use coir verm and gypsum, hydrate to just under field capacity.


Throw it out man it's toast.

Coffee is terrible for a top layer. If I leave coffee in my pot for 3 days it molds.

Anyway if you've scraped it off best you can hope for is some fruits before the little bits of coffee left over begin to mold.

You should have mixed the cakes with the coir and cased with the soil.

Wasn't really "casing" as much as I was just using the coir/spent coffee ground substrate as just filling the tray to the top. Something I found online coir/spent coffee grounds as a substrate that I pasteurized. just trusted the out-grow substrate more than I trusted my own ability being as I'm a rookie.

No more coffee grounds.... on to coir/gypsum

Gotcha, fair enough...I saw the word "soil" and thought something was amiss...yeah, toss the coffee and just use coir and maybe some verm.  Good luck on the next set!

:thumbup:

You only need about 3% by dry weight gypsum in the bulk.

You can just dump boiling water over it in a bucket. Coir doesn't have any beneficial microbes.      So pasteurization doesn't benefit a coir bulk sub.  Full or partial sterilization is fine. Bucket tek is partial sterilization if you use boiling water.


If you use coffee grinds. you need to sterilize or properly pasturize your bulk.
