H/poo spawning question
    #4199508 - 05/20/05 02:57 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Hi guys,
I spawned my PF cake to tennstud mix 9 days ago, and I could barely see any growth on the top. I can't see the inner growth since I used a foil pan.
My question is, is it possible for me to pack the mix to tight in the foil pan. I did pack it down a bit, but not too much. I unplug the heater on my TiT with room temperature around 70 F.

Also after mixing the poo with my crumbled cake I decided to put more poo on top just to fill the pan a bit. Is this ok? I think this might be why I haven't seen much growth on top.

any input would be appreciated......... K+++++

how many pf cakes did you spawn into the poo?

how much poo did you use?

you don't want to pack horse poo in tight...it should be loose and airy!~

you need to incubate the substrate...turn your TIT back on to 81 degrees F.

roadkill,
I use three of foil pans that are about a size of a meatloaf pan. For each pan I used three 1/2quart cakes, and fill the rest with h/poo mix (i filled it up close to the brim). For three meatloaf pans I used almost a whole bag of 5lb tenstud mix. I can't remember exactly the dimension of the pan, but approx its about a foot long, 5in wide and 3.5in deep.
I thought I supose to unplug the tit for h/poo since h/poo generate it's own heat, but I trust you anyway... I can't get to my site for a couple days, is it ok to leave it in room temp for couple more days? How long is too long for h/poo if I don't see any growth on the top?
Roadkill, it's awesome to have someone highly experienced like you help newb like me... Thaks much.....

so you used a total of 9 pf cakes to 5 lbs of poo?
that sounds pretty good.

you really need to bump the temp up to 81 degrees F...asp
your colonization will suffer if you don't.

I hope you mixed the jars into the poo really well!~

you should see signs of growth in a few days...after you bump the heat up.

:blush: <--your gonna make me!~

so i better bump the temp asap huh... what about tomorrow? Tomorrow would be the 10th day since they were spawned to h/poo. I hope they're ok...
I actually had the tit on for the first 3 or 4 days after I spawned the cake, but then I read a forum saying that it's better to unplug the tit when using h/poo... grrr... I should've asked someone experienced instead of listening to some wanna be expert...
I'd love to post some pics, but everytime I go to the grow site I always forgot my camera... :confused: maybe I'll remember next time.

the longer the colonization takes...the more chances of contams taking over.

I'd go over today...if I was you.

shit..... I can't really go there today. How big is the chance of contamination. The grow site is pretty clean overall, and I always lysol the air and wash my hand with alcohol whenever I open the foil to check any growth.
:sad: now I'm really worry.... thanks a lot roadkill  :cool:
Today is quite a bit warmer than the last few days, and I'm sure the room temp will pick up to at least 75F.
So how long is too long for h/poo before its fully colonised? Any other suggestion for me to speed up h/poo colonisation time?

poboy,

I should've save some spawn for the top. Can I lightly try to dig and mix the top layer with clean fork? or that's just asking for trouble?
