Spawn/Casing Incubation Timeline
    #4113318 - 04/30/05 02:12 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Ok heres the deal. I have 3 Qt. jars of WBS fully colonized with GT strain. I just got my Tenn. Stud 50/50 mix. I'm going to be combining 5# of substrate with 1.5 qts of WBS spawn in a 15" x 13" x 6.5" dishpan to incubate.

Here is where the dilemma comes in. My dad is coming into town next weekend, Sat. May 7th - Mon. May 9th. Now he isn't gonna be staying with me thankfully but I won't have much time to be messing with my science project. So this is what I need to know:

1. With these dimensions of my bulk container, incubating at ~85 F. What is a good estimate of time until 100% colonization?

2. How long could I prolong adding the casing layer after full colonization of the substrate without jeopardizing the strength and momentum of the mycellium?

I know a lot of factors effect this scenario but I was just hoping to get a general idea.

Also a couple quick questions regarding incubating the spawned substrate/casing.

3. After adding the spawn to the substrate, do I need pinholes in the foil covering them during incubation or no?

4. Same question as above but during incubation after casing layer is added.

Thank you all in advance for any advice or help you may provide.
Shroomery is a wonderful community.

p.s. This is my first grow ever so give me your blessings. I have a felling I'm gonna need it. :1up:

Hey, what's up? I would say 7-10 days for full colonization. As far as waiting after colonization, I wouldn,t think waiting a few days could hurt. I'm sure there's still some poo left after a week. Yes you need the holes to allow for gas exchange . Both situations. Good Luck.

Thanks a bunch HippieChick. Just woke up and can't wait to spawn the substrate today. All this is so very exciting.

How long you think after adding the casing layer until its time to initiate pinning? 3-5 days would be my guess?

1.) depends on what thickness your substrate is...and if its fluffy or dense. anywhere between 5 days to 2 weeks(if it's too thick and dense).

2.) couple days is optimal for me.

3.) yes

4.) yes

Depends on what kind of casing material you are using.

If you are using 60/40 Verm and Coco Coir...might be within 24 hours if you have an aggressive strain or isolate.

I always check every 6 to 8 hours when using 60/40

Cool thanks for the input.
The substrate layer I'm estimating will be around 5".
Doing 60/40 Verm/Coir
Golden Teacher strain.
First grow...
and if I trip, will be my first trip on shrooms.
I've taken them before but have yet to trip.
Think my dosage was too small previously.
