Faster Growth?
    #2618180 - 04/29/04 09:10 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Hey guys,

My foaf was wondering, and he wants to know what will grow faster, WBS? RYE? or i dont know what else? also when cased, on which casing myc spreads faster? poo? coir/verm? jiffy mix? peat and oyster?

btw when you are producing in bulk? is it better to prepare 1qt jars? 1 pint? or half pint, he knows that half pint will ofcourse colonize faster, so is it worth it having like a bunch of half pint jars, or just qts?

thanks in advance  :stoned:

ps. I'm in a hurry and posting this so my post might be a little confusing, sry :smile:

this question is kind of loaded, and as i'm sure you well know, there is no definitive answer for which (if any) is faster. It depends on many variables, and you could make any of these things colonize extremely fast with a little luck and a lot of good technique.
try out different methods until you find something that works well for you.

I've heard that peptone enhances saprophyte mycelium growth, never used it myself though. As far as a casing material which colonizes fast, I beleive straight coco coir is the best. Mycelium loves the stuff.
depending on how much spawn you want, you can choose accordinly what size vessels to use.

go with the qts, they do take longer but they give so much more without all the jars. if you handle your stuff right you could have all the grain to case or all the spawn you want. just plan ahead.

also when casing if you want the myc to go wild just use coir with some lime added. it will tear through the stuff. of course that could lead to overlay. in my reading it seems that a coir verm mix works best, better pinsets and better later flushes (less overlay).

best of luck to you
