Need to refamiliarize myself with a few things, please help
    #2762557 - 06/04/04 10:01 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hey I spawned 2 quarts onto corn a while ago and now they are fully colonized and ready to place in my big rubbermaid.
I am going to be using two 74 quart rubbermaid containers stacked on top of each other. I'll place a fishtank heater in between them with water to maintain the right temperature for colonization and then fruiting. I'll be using straw and worm castings.
My questions are...
1) any problems with this?
2) Isn't the correct temperature for colonization 83 degrees farhenheit? Assuming it is, how much do I drop the temperature when I want to start fruiting?
3) Anyone have any good ideas as to what ratio of worm castings to straw I should use?

All help is greatly appreciated, thanks a bunch.

1)No problems from what I see.
2)Correct temp is 86f, but being a few degree's off won't hurt.
3)I have not personally used worm castings, check the FAQ under bulk teks.

1)are u talking about the tub in tub incubater? If so then you are golden is far as colonization goes
2)83 to 86 is good. Fruiting temps need to be at 75F
3)never worm poo or straw

Never worm poo or straw? Why? I've seen grow logs doing the exact same thing I am attempting, using worm poo and straw in a rubbermaid with an incubator built in...

Think he meant "never USED worm poo or straw"
