Question about making some more spawn...
    #3505893 - 12/15/04 09:39 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I have 5 quarts of popcorn colonizing and I wanted to use a quart per rubbermaid to do a bulk, its my first time with popcorn and I didnt get the watercontent quite right. Two of them are growing strong and I haven't noticed growth in the other three. I'm thinking maybe the water content is too far off with those ones. If I took my two quarts and spawned it to a tray thats maybe 1'x2' and about 4-5" deep with poo/straw and let that colonize for about a week, could I take a sterile knife and cut it up into 5 pretty equal portions and use that as spawn? I'd just make sure to wear gloves and maybe dip em in alcohol before handeling that spawn.

Thanks bro, I'm just a little concerned maybe I wasn't clear with what I meant. I was planning on having 5 quarts of spawn to work with, one for each of 5 seperate bulks. So I want to turn 2 quarts of spawn into 5 or more. So I just want to have a tray of straw/poo to serve as spawn to be divided up between the 5 bulks. Thinking bulk neglect, only thing is I might not be able to fan and mist EVERY day, probably every 2 days. Would that change much?

Fanning every 2 days is not the best but better than not at all.

Thanks man. I'm thinkin maybe I'll get a humidifier and run it to each of the bulks, I'm sure if I tweak the on/off schedule I can find a good balance to keep the RH really high in all of them. Would putting h2o2 in the reservoir water keep it contam free or would I be best to cover the air intake with a nice thick but fluffy layer of polyfil? I know most of my stuff when it comes to doing a bulk, I just want to work out the minor details as those are the ones that always seem to make or break something like this.

Aight thanks bro. I'm just thinking the humidifier could take care of the misting/fanning for me. That'd help automate the grow. Just a thought.

So is his bulk substrate spawn not a good way to make spawn?

Why not make more jars and do some g2g transfers from your 2 quart masters? seems like running your 2 quarts to bulk might be one too many steps to do another transfer with out some type of a contam issue arising. 2 quart masters could easily make up to 15 more second generation jars :wink:

Yeah I hear ya. I would do that but I don't want to boil up and sterilize more popcorn. I've gotta do an overload or two of dung/straw so I might as well use some of it to make a small tray which i could transfer the grain to. That way when colonized (within a week hopefully) I'd have 5-10x the original amount of spawn and transfer a bit of that into each of my bulks. Popcorns a bitch so I just want to transfer it to something better.

Do your g2g's to WBS. :thumbup: Makes better spawn IMO.
