Wheat Straw - Rye Grain Ratio Question?
    #2816629 - 06/22/04 11:07 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hi

I have a few bulk substrate questions -If you have:

fully colonized 1 qt jars of organic rye grain
miniature bales of chopped wheat straw measuring 6" X 6" X 12"

What is the ratio of rye grain to wheat straw that you should use to make bulk substrate?

Also what if you add manure or worm castings to the bulk substrate mixture - what would the ratio of rye grain to wheat straw to dung or worm castings that you should use?

Thanks in advance!!!

70/20 straw/spawn by volume is what I use
got one of the minibales from myco supply huh I like those but way too pricey
its nice to add a little shit too
remember to pack your straw down real well to help it colonize faster and when you have the chance give wbs or finch seed a try smaller grains so you get more innoc points

I thought the mini bales were cheap at 1st. But now that I see the ratio, I can see why it's pricey. Say you used one colonized qt of rye berries to one 6" X 6" X 12" mini bale of straw - the mini bales are $9 each. So if you had 12 jars that would be 12 bales @ $9 or $108!!! I better go find a local farmer with some straw!!!
