Is it worth it...
    #4102912 - 04/27/05 03:55 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

For a bulk grow, is spawning worth the effort, or would i be cool with just doing a simple casing? advantages/disadvatages?

Advantages- bulk projects can be done requiring very little work/time. They sustain their own heat and humidity once spawned. They yield exponentially more than cakes.

Disadvantages- take up more space. Require more spawning material. May require pasteurisation of substrates.

Casings are REAL easy, if you have a pressure cooker, a terrarium, and time to spend on the project. Bulk projects are SUPER easy once you've perfected generating spawn.

I'm trying not to use poo because i have roommates, so would it not be worth it then?

IF you get prepasturized stuff (like that from High Mountain or Tennstud) it does not smell.  Really, at WORST it smells like fresh dirt.  I kinda like it  :grin:  earthy...

Poo doesnt smell at all...you can buy the dry stuff and pasteurize it yourself, or just buy a couple bags of pre pastuerized straight h-poo from tn stud. Spawn that stuff to a tub and you wont be displeased.

Sure. Any Rye/WBS tek to start. Say, 2 Quart jars, or 4 pint jars. When those are done (I personally recommend a TIT incubator, works wonders) break 'em up, spawn them to a bag of Tennstud 50/50 or straight poo (prepasturized.) Lay down plastic on top, incubate, case, and fruit.

Do a bit of RTFM, it's not hard stuff.

Yeah, learn how to do WBS in quart jars and spawn it to poo.  You won't look back my friend, life only goes only forwards from there.  Your first manure harvests will make your day like nothing else.  Keep studying  :mushroom2: :smile:

If you don't have a pressure cooker, and PF cakes are your substrate, then yes, GO BULK. You can spawn Pasteurized mnaure with PF cakes.

If you have a PRessure cooker. Grains will out yield or yield the same as manure on a per cup basis, but they require more space to fruit the same amount of substrate.

Big fruits make great pictures and increase your popularity at the shroomery, but they don't mean your yields have increased. I have never gotten better yields per cup of substrate with BULK, it is the same or worse.
