Spawn Bags substrate question
    #2596630 - 04/24/04 12:48 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I am going to use large autoclave spawn bags that I bought from www.sporeworks.com and use a syringe to colonize the substrate in the bags. MY question was is there a limit of substrate choices because I am using a syringe and not spawn. I want to use 50 verm./ 50 castings and maybe some other stuff. Do you guys have any suggestions?

I bought a whole bunch of those bags as well. I did a test and used 2 bags. One with WBS, and the other with WBS and BRF mixed with it. It seems the spores had a hard time germinating on the wbs because of the shells. The one that I mixed in a small amount of BRF with the WBS germinated fine.

My recomendation as advised by Granola is to use WBS or some grain for the initial innoculation then spawn that to worm castings/straw

Squirting a spore syringe into a large bag of grain is not the best of ideas. It would be better to colonize a pint jar of grain, then use that as spawn to inoculate the bag. If you are not able/wanting to open the bag at all after pressure cooking to inoculate with spawn, then I would go with a liquid inoculation technique (honey/karo jar).
