Mixing spawn into bulk substrate
    #3339407 - 11/10/04 12:20 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I use 33 gal bins with straw/dung and usually just hand mix my rye spawn in and then pack down. I think the top dries out a bit during spawn run. Should i add an extra layer of pure straw/dung on top right after I mix the spawn and substrate together to prevent this?

So long as your bulk substrate is at the proper moisture content and you maintain a decent seal and proper temps, you shouldn't really have this problem. I would say either try using more spawn to increase colonization speed or make sure that your substrate is at the right moisture.

The plastic wrap should go right onto the substrate, touching it and sitting on it. If you just cover the top of the bin the air pocket can dry out the top of your substrate.

never had that happen...

u should be okay, you could mist the top of it a little after youve mixed it all in...

That was what was said about straw alone..I didnt notice hes using dung too..I would imagine it could help though.

makes no difference, except straw can dry up some...
Mist lightly, very lightly should get the desired results~
