Best way to go about BULK
    #3458838 - 12/07/04 10:47 AM (12 years, 5 days ago)

I stopped growing about a year or so ago due to living conditions. Im fixing to get a remote house, that has some extra rooms. I have a good sterile technique, and know what im doing so bulk shouldent be too hard. What would be the best way to go about growing in bulk in one of these rooms? Should I turn the whole room into a grow chamber? (I think contamn will be a serious issue), have a few "martha stewart" style chambers, or just use alot of tubs? I plan on having a serious hepa unit(mabey multiple ones). Any insiight, or links would be helpfull, thanks

I think those are going to be helpful.

i'm planning on taking the poo/straw approach myself.

Since you've been here for a while, i'll let you search for it yourself, but look for Magash's thread on the Martha Stewart closet. I've seen people use multiple tubs inside one of those badboys and get lots of shroomies.

with big bulk you just need a big ass tuppeware/sterilite container... like 18-how many gallons you want... no need fo a green house... or do both!

yeah those big tubs work wonders... fill those with a poo/straw/perlite mix and they fruit continuously for years. I am currently trying that with wood chips to see if I can get this local species to grow.

Well, lets say you have a room that's 12'x12' and you want that to be your grow room.

Build shelves off the walls, run your hepa, buy enough tupperware tubs to cover the perimeter of the room with one sterile glovebox table in the middle. Always wear a mask, always wear a hair net, always wear gloves, always keep lysol handy, always take a shower before entering.

Use EVERY tupperware tub as a giant casing with a 6" deep substrate level of poo/straw. Change out each casing after three flushes, don't push it past that even though poo can generally make more than 3 flushes, you don't want a contam fest going on in your grow room.

You will most likely need a very large drying operation as well. Take that into account because there's nothing worse than having to watch what would be 5 ounces of dry shrooms turn into a puddle of shit after being picked.

Ive already with straw and shit in the big ass tubs and got a oz or two dry first flush everytime, but I quit due to living conditions.

With the drying, I plan on using a blower or similar industrial fan. That was my idea, with those god-awful tubs and the shelves and whatnot, But I still think contamn is going to be a major issue, even with a hepa. I plan on waterproofing the entire room, and enstalling some type of slick flooring. I was thinking I could get some type of chemical suit to be sterile in, and possibly a gas mask. How do the growers in holland have such large op's and not get contamns?

Turn the whole room into a grow room! That's every growers dream! Well, it's mine at least, so I have to promote that. Get 2 nice hepa filters, and put one inside the chamber, and one right outside the chamber (room).

hey since we are on bulk i cooked my straw in a pot. i was on the idea of letting it soak after pasturizeing int he fridge sealed up.then justa moment ago i cooked it to get rid of the access water..also i guess it kinda re pasturized it also..so im shooting to knock it up with karo? any ideas?

I'm thinking that the only way to noc straw with karo would be to mix up your karo, dump the whole culture all over the straw, let the excess water drain out, and hope for the best.

Yes, now spawning WBS to straw would work.

But, from what I understand about liquid culture and straw, doing it the other way, you're going down a very tough road.
1) the myc in karo is very weak and will take a little bit to get a foothold and spread.
2) straw is VERY VERY VERY susceptible to contamination, they say don't even let colonized straw show through the casing layer during a bulk grow, to me that sounds pretty weak.

These 2 things combined just don't make that work very well, if at all.
