ok to spawn??
    #3807081 - 02/20/05 04:52 PM (13 years, 6 days ago)

my foaf has a couple of WBS quart jars going for 2 weeks now, most of the jars are 90-95% done. her question is, is it advisable to spawn to straw and poo now since the mycelium is going to have to colonize the straw and poo as well?? basically, is it ok to have uncolonized grains when spawning to bulk substrate?

another thing she is wondering about is, she cant get whole rye grains around her area, but she can get Rye Flakes, which look like squished rye grains. would this be suitable to use as grain spawn? any ideas?

thanks in advance!!  :mushroom2:

I would wait for another 2-3 days before spawning. Uncolonized substrates are much less resistant to contaminants.

I would suggest sticking with your WBS for now.

In the end, my friend, we will all be together again.

Spawning with grain that is not 100% colonized increases your risk of contamination. I have done it when I was in a rush and lost one of two substrates to the green monster.

The flattened grain does not sound promising, but experimenting is half the fun. Give it a try.
