Going bulk
    #4091760 - 04/24/05 04:13 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I have done a bunch of growing with different spawn types like WBS, Popcorn and the tried and true PF cake method. I have never bulk spawned any straw before, but I think shroomgods tek looks like it has tons of potential... How hard is it to go bulk? My casings always used to contam with WBS, so i am worried about the straw. So, to all you bulk growers out there, how many tries did it take you? Is straw more contam resistant than casings because its pasteurized and not sterilized?

From what I've read about straw, the main issue to look at is correct water content.  Too much water and you'll get straw rot... GL bro :stoned:

"Is straw more contam resistant than casings"

From what i've read straw contams more easily. But i bet you the advice your about to get is go with h/poo. It is the bulk of choice, thats what im trying next.

Bulk is easy. Simple with neglect-tek. Heres a concise write up to give you ideas.

I think i'm going to just try straight up straw first off. Sounds like everything in mycology, you just gotta take the plunge =). Looks like its bulk time.

my reccomendation would be against straw.
if you have had ANY trouble w/ contamination on wbs sub.,
then i would stay away from straw; it will most likely fruit until it contaminates.
H :poop: will likely fruit until it runs out of nutrients.
you will be able to be less particular with your methods because of
poo's contaminant resistant nature.


my thought is that you choose straw because of it's availabliity.
if you have twenty-some bucks, do yourself (and anyone who learns from it) a favor and try  Tenn Stud


you won't be disappointed

Yeah I didn't really have access to a full kitchen or anything like that when I was doing my WBS casings, and was dealing with limited space as an issue as well living in a really small room. I am figuring it will be easier to prevent contams when spawning with large amounts of spawn (5qts or so) than when doing tiny little WBS casings in 6 inch pans. But I could be wrong about that, it's just my hunch.

Five poundds should fill a one foot by one foot container about four inches

i should be getting my first 5lb tenn stud poo bag any day now(so excited!). i'm glad to hear larryg say it would fill 1ft by 1ft- 4inches deep cause thats what i was hoping for. ill be using those dimensions, roughly speaking, but split in 2 containers.
i was concerned 'cause i saw a recent post here with a pic of someones 5lb bag of high mountain compost and it looked pretty small. it looked like it filled 2-3inches of a 1ft by 6inch container. is that stuff heavier?

Nice, that's pretty accurate.  Here's 4 LBS. in a 12 x 7 x 7 (approx.) container which comes out to a depth of around 4 inches.  5-10 LBS. of wet poo doesn't go quite as far as you might think, so plan ahead.  Don't try to stretch it across your bathtub in a big bulk grow or you may be disappointed with a super thin substrate.  Small-medium containers + thick substrate = you'll be lovin' it.:mushroom2: :cool:
