Bulk Grow question - how much spawn
    #3036128 - 08/22/04 01:51 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I am planning a grow on straw and I am wondering how much spawn I will need to use for a 90 QT container.

Thanks

use 1/10 of substrate i believe .. 1/5 would be much faster though, that is pretty big, goodluck!

oh, are u filling up the entire 90 quarts ?????????? if so, then it would about 9 - 18 quarts man

haha that is a very big container
most of us just use 18 gal or similar
b/c if yr 90 gal container
contams
think how pissed you will be
why put all yr eggs in one basket


in answer to yr question, though, the most common ratio of spawn to substrate reccomended is 1:10 although you can go much lower
better start doing g2g today if you are trying to get this much substrate

mouse, 90Q so its only 22.5gal. How tall is the container? Im guessing 4-7 gal of substrate will fit so anywhere from 2-6 quarts of spawn can be used, 4q would work fine.

I have been kicking the idea around and thought of the "eggs in one basket" as well.

I am going to start smaller and see how well that works as well as do g2g until i have enuf that it wont matter (as much) if contams get in. I have a pretty decent setup going though with a room dedicated to my efforts. floor is covered in plastic drop cloth with an air purifier suited for a room 2x its size. Everything that doesnt belong in there is gone and only nice clean me gets to come in when needed.

Even still I am going to go ahead and start a bit smaller and we shall see what happens.

Sounds like you have the start of a nice lab. ;D

Well if your spawing to a manure/straw mix and pasturize correctly your risks of contams are much lower then say straight grain casings. And even if it does contam dump it in a hole outside and you have a nice patch.

Will you be doing open air G2G's in your work room or do you have a glovebox or flowhood? What is the hepa units filtering %?

I have some straw all chopped up and waiting however i am waiting on spawn.  i have some manure i got from lowes that my last batch HATED so I am looking into other alternatives.  I did order some compost from high moutain compost after reading some very good reviews on the boards here.  I am waiting on that in the mail.

Would that work as an alternative to manure with the straw and if not is there a place to get some good stuff rather than finding it?

For now it will be very carefully done in open air until I get a glove box (or build one)

The hepa unit - I am not sure on the % i accidentaly threw the manual out with the box but it was quite the sales pitch on the box let me tell you. :smile:
