Mixing SpAwNs?? Casing question too.
    #4102174 - 04/27/05 11:44 AM (12 years, 5 days ago)

I've got a lot of PF style cakes going along.. as well as some WBS jars. These will all finish at around the same time. Can both be added to the same substrate.. spawned together??

How small might I want to crumble the PF cakes into the substrate?? I know I'm just going to spoon out the mycellium out of the quart jars.

As far as the casing question. I've got access to crushed oyster.. that's no prob. I've got fine grade vermiculite and got some coco coir from the local pet store. Should I use all 3?? I was looking at either.... (10% oystershell / 90% coir) or (60% vermiculite / 40% coir). Any sugguestions?? I'm very new to bulk.

You can spawn anything in conjunction, BRF + WBS is fine. Shoot for pea sized chunks when you break up the BRF. As for the casing question, you can use all 3 of those.

For casing, you can use all three. I would not recommend using 10% oyster shell and 90% coir. If you are going to use coir, you should combine it with verm. Around 60% verm. 40% coir. Coir by itself will dry out real quick. Since coir has the proper ph range to start, you don't really need the oyster shell, but it will help out on the ph with future flushes. Good Luck.

yes...as long as they are the same strain.

You can use a cheese grater or a mini food processor to break up the cakes.
I use this...




shot of ground up BRF/Verm cake being spawned into horse poo.


60% vermiculite / 40% coir...works for me.

Hey Road, using a cheese grater or food processor doesn't hurt them to much? Do they need any time to recover? or do you just grate them and case immediately?

hi sisi,

doesn't hurt the cakes at all...makes more inoculation points to start colonizing the horse poo.

doesn't take any time to recover...you will see the poo start to colonize in 24 to 48 hours.

I only do this to spawn to poo.

Thanks Road. I have three cakes of Maz. I'm wanting to spawn to poo. Can you use a coffee grinder? Hope all are well.

If your coffee grinder is anything like mine, it'll take a while to grind even one cake in there.  Theres not much room, so you'd have to grind it up in chunks.  Also, I think it just might pulverize them a little too much.  You don't want mycelium powder lol... GL HC :stoned:

Yea you've got a little more room than me, but the blade itself seems identical.  Maybe try it out, but be careful about chopping it up too finely... GL chicky :stoned:

BTW, I always put "GL bro" at the end of my posts, what the hell do I put for a female??? lol :confused: :bongload:

I can push the on button for just a second, see what it does. Just grind it up a little until I get the desired consistency.

Thats what I was thinking, but I'd use just a small amount at first.  I'm afraid if you put too much in there, it'll just grind the bottom and leave a chunk at the top.  I'm thinking you'd have to grind it for a long period of time to get the whole thing.  Then you'd end up with powder.  Give it a try, let us know how it goes... GL uhhh yea :stoned:

I really wouldn't use a coffee grinder.

use a cheese grater...the large hole kind.

I have an extra mini food processor if you want it sisi.
I picked it up at a yard sale for $4.00 still in the box...like new.
Let me know..if you want it.
