Bulk Substrate Question????
    #2885648 - 07/13/04 01:04 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I made some bulk substrate w/ dung, straw, and colonized rye berries. I think I might have went a little light on the colonized rye. I had the 6"x6"x12" mini bales from mycobags.
I used 2 fully colonized 1 quart rye berry jars per mini bale/dung. I know a good ratio is 1:10. The more I think about it the more I think I was light on the colonized rye, especially when I figure in the dung to the ratio.
My question is now that I have more jars colonizing - could I add more colonized rye to each tray of starw dung and colonized rye to speed things up??? Or should I just leave it alone and expect it to take longer for the beds to fully colonize??

Thanks!!!

Well I added some colonized rye to my bulk substrate trays and it really sped things up. I hope that was the right move - I have my fingers crossed!!! The top of the substrate is really white now and spreading all the way through hopefully  :thumbup: Next time I'll just use more colonized substrate to begin with.

Yes, the ammount of spawn makes a difference.

I remember trying to use a half pint , to start 4 projects! :nonono:

Although....2 of those are fruiting :smile: :thumbup:

I think if you expose your beds to more upheaval you are takin a chance of heavy contaims. Just let them be. Besides with your colonization a little on the small side you will end up with more rycopic myc. growth with means more aggresive pins and bigger flushes.Thats my 2 cents.
