poop to grain spawn ratio.
    #2624839 - 05/01/04 09:50 AM (14 years, 28 days ago)

I just pasteurized a pot full of poop+rice hulls yesterday, I'd like to know what the optimum spawn to poop ratio is.

Everyone uses different ratios. The more spawn, the quicker the colonization. The more spawn, the more nutritious...

I go about 1:4 spawn to substrate, sometimes less...

Really? I was thinking of doing 50:50.

I understand more spawn making the colonization quicker, but the nutrition part is confusing me.

If grain is more nutritious than dung, then why not go with straight grain?

I thought dung was the hyper uber nutritive substrate.

When you spawn to poo you are just making more spawn...I just case grains because spawning to poo most allways contammed...

4 pints of spawn to 12lbs of poo is a good ratio...
