some straw tek questions
    #2723958 - 05/24/04 06:55 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Ok im mostly following Shroomgod's Straw Tek.  I just pasteurized some straw and its sitting over the sink. I have a few questions before i move on so any help would be appreciated.

1. Do i need to worry about bacteria/mold getting on the straw after its been on the stove. It seems like it gets too exposed just sitting on an oven rack above the sink draining.]

2. How dry should the straw be? I dont know how dry its gonna get sitting in the bags it was pasteurized in.

3.I want to have holes in the plastic i wrap around it for incubation right?

4. Do i need to provide air exchange for the incubation period?


I think thats all for now. Thanks for the help :smile:

1) You should be alright while it's draining on the rack. As a precaution you could cover it up with something so you don't have to worry about airborn particles landing on it.
2) The straw should have perfect moisture content after pasteurizing and draning according to the TEK.
3) Yes
4) If you mean fanning, no. The holes poked should be enough to release C02 buildup.

Might want to check a straw log TEK as opposed to the TEK you're reading if you still have questions.

You don't need to incubate straw, it has it's own temperature ranges, unless the temperature are under 70 than incubate to 75 and the straw shouldhold a temp in the mid 80's!

Incubation - Letting straw colonize (this does not happen under fruiting conditions) so yes, you need to incubate the straw after you've introduced the spawn before fruiting. Temp ranges for fruiting cubensis remain the same, no matter what the substrate is.
