First bulk attempt...
    #2612434 - 04/28/04 06:59 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Has failed.  I got a pretty bad case of trich on the surface of the spawn.  Most of the trich was still in the white mycelium stage, and there were two tiny spots where it had turned green.  I took the entire top layer off (it was 8 layers of colonized birdseed and worm casting/straw mix with a top layer of worm castings only), and sprayed the entire thing with straight peroxide.  I'm pretty sure it's a lost cause, so I'm spawning another one tonight!  :smile:  I'll keep on tryin' until I get it right.  Wish me luck!

Wait...you mean straight 3% peroxide? I didn't think you could by 100% H202

Did you pasteruize your straw? that's vital. also make sure as you pasteurize that the straw (or poo) doesn't get too hot, I think the temp is like 175F or something (do a search for teks and temps)

yup its around 170. it doesnt have to be exact, just keep it in the range of 165-180 for around an hour and a half. its really easy!!! oh and make sure you drain the substrate over the sink (or however) for AT LEAST three or four hours. overnight is best.

I did the oven tek, with autoclavable bags.  I put a thermometer in the center of the bags and let them cook for 90 minutes from the time the center of the bag reached 175.  I think I may have used too much water in the castings.  It's a trial and error thing, I'm still learning. :wink: I think next time I'll use cow poo and heat in water on the stove, it's hard to get too much water in cow poo, but earthworm castings can be easily over-damp. 


For now, though, I just cased three quarts of WBS done "Rez-Effect""style in a 1 gallon rubbermaid.  Happy times!
