:shrug:

Most go by volume, not weight.

Spawn:bulk 1:1 1:2 are typical

Fair enough so i should do a 1:2 you think 1:4 will be no good?

1:4 will work fine but most people prefer 1:2 it seems like

Does anybody have pics of a 1:4 or 1:3 grow by chance? would be extremely appreciative. I ordered twice as much sub compared to what I wanted, and will have to save 10 lbs until my next cycle. unless I can pull off a 1:4 but even a 1:3 wouldn be that bad I guess.

And thanks for all the input!!

No reason it wouldn't work. afaik the higher the ratio, the longer it takes to colonize. You could probably do 1:10, but at some point you're not going to get much more yield for the bulk. 1:1-1:2 seems to be a good balance for yield and time frame for most.

Start making more spawn of your own and save some bulk for that round. Not like you need to use all your bulk at once.

So basically it will just take like 3 weeks to fruit if I did 1:4 for example. instead 1-2 weeks if I did 1:2 ?? I totally get that I dont need to use it all, but because of how hot it is where I live. I would have to store it in the fridge. Thats not really ideal with 10 extra lbs of sub. At the end of the day if im not comfortable with a 1:4. I will end up saving the rest.

If I did my math right that basically a 1:1 ratio almost a 1:1.5. I dont usually mess up I messed up ordering sub and have to much. I usually do a 1:2. Also dont want to save the extra. I havent really experimented so im not that comfortable doing a 1:4 grow. Looking for info about higher ratio's. Thanks for the input thou.
