Need help on starting a bulk grow
    #2536213 - 04/07/04 07:49 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Ive read the different bulk grow teks, but im still kind of foggy on a few things:

-Can a package of straw be bought at a store? If so, where?
-Using the oven method, can the straw be mixed with store bought manure and pasturized in the same bag?
-Would six 1/2 pints be enough spawn to use on a normal rubbermaid container?
-Would one have to use something like an ultrasonic humidifier, or can misting and fanning be used?
-Does the lid need to allow light through a hole in the top? (obviously a dumb ?, but just making sure)

Sorry if it dragged on a bit, but thanks a ton for the help guys!

From my experience, straw is better pasturized using a water method.  Seems to ensure consistent exposure to heat.

Round me, straw is easily bought in bales, and costs mebbe 6 bucks at the outside.  I've also seen it in craft-type stores, altho that is MUCH higher priced.

Define "normal" rubbermaid.  they come in all sizes. :tongue:

Misting and fanning seems to work fine, altho it may need it more.

Misting and fanning during the day seems to expose it to enough light too, IME.

Hope this helps.

Agway or farm stores

Yes i perfer doing it that way
-Would six 1/2 pints be enough spawn to use on a normal rubbermaid container?
A small rubbermade if your spawning BRF put in blender and sprinkle in layer and no a blender wont hurt the mycelium
-Would one have to use something like an ultrasonic humidifier, or can misting and fanning be used?
Yes misting and fanning work well with casings with a good thick layer 1/4" to every inch of substrate misting wont be that often
-Does the lid need to allow light through a hole in the top? (obviously a dumb ?, but just making sure)
Actually just the few times a day ie. 3 times aday fanning is enough light but yes you can cut a hole and put plexi or suran wrap over it if your going to be using a rubber made go for a all black one if you can see allittle light through the sides tape up the area where substrate is so no light can get through if not itll pin down there and cause havic
