mixing spawn to poo question
    #4143510 - 05/06/05 07:52 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

im getting my poo soon and my spawn is ready. unfortunately im using 6 half pint jars for 5lbs instead of 8 half pints. but my question is how do i mix the spawn in? my plan is to put a crumpled half pint in the container and then add about a pound on top. then mix that. then add another pint and then another pund and mix all of that. etc. is this a good method?
also the spawn was completely colonized 1 week ago, it took 2 weeks. but theyve been sitting around for the last week, making it 3 weeks since inoculation. should i dunk those cakes or not? someone once mentioned not dunking but breaking them up in a ziplock the night before. why do that?

When spawning to poopoo, a FOAF likes to mix about 60-70% of the spawn sub in with the poo and put the other 30-40% on top to protect against contams. You can layer it or just mix it right in, different strokes for different folks.

You could dunk the cakes, but if you're using them to spawn it won't really matter. The reason you would break them up in a ziplock is that you will be giving your crumbled mycelium a head start...It will start to rebuild in there and will be more aggressive when u spawn it to the bulk sub.

Good luck hope this helps

You might want to consider grating your cakes with a cheese grater instead of crumbling. Especially if you are only using six. Grating will create many more inoculating points. If you don't use enough spawn, your colonization will take longer and possibly allow contams to get a foothold. Don't short yourself on the spawn ratio. It should be between 25%-30% spawn.
Good Luck.

is it bad if it's more than 30% spawn? or just an inefficient use?

Yes, that's me from time to time. And thank you. When you grate, make sure to use the larger holes. Good Luck.

Weren't looking in the right place. Next time look in the cliffs of Brighton outside Negril Jamaica. Trekkin across the island eating Miss Brown's mushys on a Marley fed tempest. Some friends who came to visit.



Sharing a cootchie and brewing some tea with my friend Redman, smoothest pipe I ever used. Fire never hits the smoke.



One of the tea bags,



His back yard,



The ceiling of his home,



Nothing like starting the day with a cup of Miss Brown's tea. A visit to Redmans for more tea, then off to Hedonism, the swingers resort,



For some swinging of course.



Great times,
Great peeps,

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

This is actually something that I was going to do.

Not as large scale though. I wanted to take like 4 1/2 pint jars, break em up, maybe try that cheese grater tek. And then mix with some pasturized horse poo... not sure if I should mix some vermiculite in with the poo or not.

Since I'm only goin with 2 pints of spawn, keeping it 25%... Ill add only 6 pints of horse poo, mix it up real good and let it colonize. Then case with some 50/50 mix.



Sound alright?

in princilpe it should work gatorade. but as far as my situation is my containers have stalled. too wet. mixing with some verm would probably have been a good idea.
