oyster spawn question
    #4215900 - 05/24/05 09:15 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

OK so doing this spawn in bags.. looks like its growing out great.. my question, how much should i inoculate? how much does a bale of straw weigh? i read somewhere that you could take one 6.5lb bag of spawn and inoc 3 bales of straw... i think thats just a 10% rate though, so id at least do double, 2 bags for 3 bales... any thoughts/experience? thanks

The bales available around our farm weigh 40-50lbs. Are you going to do hanging columns of the straw? I think I get about fifty 3ft logs from four or five bales. I use one quart jar to inoculate the logs. I used to use more, like three to four jars, but I found that it wasn't necessary for speed or fruiting after one jar. A five pound spawn bag is about 10 times as much spawn as a jar, so you could make about 10 3ft. logs from one spawn bag, but maybe you could do much more. That sounds more like one bag of spawn to one bale would be my amounts. I found that using a supplement of some kind greatly increases yields. I like banana leaves and worm castings as they are free as long as I collect them at our farm. Banana leaves gave us 100% increase in yields, in each flush. Total unsupplemented fresh weight was about 1250-1500 / log on average. Supplemented were 2500-2750 on average over four flushes. Each flush was higher with supplement compared to the same flush unsupplemented. Hope that helps. Well, I tried to attach pics, but it says that the file size must be less than 200KB. oh well. Sorry.

what else could you use for a supplament? I am planning on doing the same thing you are jeremy, 3' log pasturized in a trash can, have you tried wood chips? How much do you produce for each log, how big around are they?
