Azurescens, expanding spawn
    #4107278 - 04/28/05 04:17 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hello

This Q is for Anno or every other person with Azure knowledge.

Anno somewhere you mention that you can extend the Azure spawn about 10 20 times the starting amount.

I started with a half pint. So I could most make 5 liter spawn out of that.

I wonder if I can mix that again with fresh wood and put that in the spawnbed outside. Because then it gets like 30-40 times the amount I started with. And that mix I want to surround with woodchips brenches leaves, forest soil, in the spawnbed.

In autumn then maybe the half pint of spawn will then be like the equivalent of 10 liters.

I want to start my spawnbed rather soon.. :smile:

MF

yes, make sure you use a flow hood or a proven glove box, I'd sart with a
smaller amount for the initial spawn run, something like 3-4 liters

wood chips that have been aged for 2-4 months are best, I usualy use my planer
to make some from scrap lumber, i soak if for a few days and then PC it, you can
also call sawmills, custom cabinet shops and lumber companies to get all the
substrate you want.

Hey Prisoner,

I already expanded the first half pint to about 2 - 2,5 liters of spawn.

No flowhood or what so ever I just mixed the initial Azure-cake (chips, and an occasional rice kernel) with 2 liters of boiled - soaked - boiled beech chips.

Thats is colonized 100% now.

I am wondering if I can do this trick again, mix it with 2,5 liter beech chips.

Then I have about 5 liters.

Then mix that with chips and put in spawnbed, surrounded by more chips and brenches leaves and such.

In the end that would end upp like 40 times the starting quantity of a half pint. Am wondering if that is risky for mutations and such.

Thanks,

MF

PS: btw we have many trees here, and the petshops also provide me with perfect dried beech chips.
