To mix or not to mix? Bulk straw
    #2754411 - 06/01/04 09:25 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

This is my first somewhat bulk grow. I am using brf cake slushy, spawned to hay. I have completed a test to see if hay works. It worked just fine.

So now I am moving on to a bigger bulk hay grow. Here are some pictures of progress so far. Now, I only had 3 half pint cakes available to spawn with. I made a slushy out of them and made them 3 layers. Bottom, middle, and top. The substrate depth is 4-5 inches.

This is at day 4-5, not exactly sure. I am thinking about mixing the substrate up to speed up colonozation. Do you think this is a good idea or should I just wait. I am worried because I didnt use that much spawn to begin with. So I dont want it to take longer than about 10 days tops.

PS- it is green because it is hay and not straw.

Brand is "Alfalfa King - Oat, Wheat, Barley Hay"

Im thinking about mixing it up very soon. Within the next hour. So give me your thoughts.

Thanks. [image][/image] [image][/image]

Well, I didnt wait for a response, so I went ahead and mixed it up. Hopefully things will work out.

You should be fine, just try to get it to colonise as fast as you can as hay is more prone to contamination than straw.

make sure the temperatures are correct, anywhere around 80-85 degrees should be fine. anything over that then make sure the tub has airspace around it. i had problems with a bulk grow last year and it looked like that and stopped growing, and i found out my temps were too high due to the fact that the bulk was generating heat itself.

Looks nice man! I just picked up some of that hay myself, looks like its doing well. How exactly do you go about making your BRF slushys?

I just took the colonized brf cakes, put them in a large ziplock bag. Added water and h202, and mixed up to slushy consistancy. I think I might try using a blender next time and making it even more liquidy. As it will probably go much farther when spawning it.
