Straw mini-Bulk Question
    #3829031 - 02/24/05 08:41 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hi Everyone,

After a few successfull PF casings, I decided to venture into the world of Popcorn and Straw.

I made it through the popcorn part and I am well into the straw phase. The other day I got some straw, shredded it up, and pasturized it for like an hour and a half. I let it drain / cool for like an hour or so, and then put it into a small sterlite container, layering the popcorn through it. Overall, the straw was about 14"x10", and about four inches deep. I originally put a layer of plastic with holes in it over the top later, but decided to take it off and just leave the lid on the sterlite on.

I got it incubating at about 85, and it has really fuzzed up nicely. My question and concern is that it seems to be very moist, I think the straw held quite a bit of water. As this is my first time, is this normal, or is this gonna be bad?

All responses are always <3'd

thanks!

That's fine, it's better then the straw drying out, which it can do very easily. Never had an issue with straw that was "too moist" myself, I think it's alright.

straw will stay very wet. Don't worry about that. if you dont have an incubator that you can keep high humidity in keep the lid on. if you can get the lid off and crank up the RH as near as 100% as possible. You were lucky you didnt cook your spores. make sure your sraw is nice and cool before inoculating

Basically, the container is small enough to fit in my incubator, so its staying nice and toasty. I was worried because I kept a lid over the straw casing, and when I opened the lid to check on the progress, water poured off of it. I guess that means its staying nice and warm though =)

If everyone says its ok, I am good with it.. I think the whole thing should be colonised in another 3-5 days.. its flying now.

Maybe I should start a grow log with these?! Anyone interested?

FYI, this was cased on Sunday. I checked it Tuesday, and had very little growth, which is when I removed the plastic layer from the top, and opted to just leave the lid on it to keep the moisture in. I didn't check it until today, and its been blowing up =)
