how many times can spawn be run?
    #4228235 - 05/27/05 11:29 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

If I took one coloniced 1/2 pt pfTek cake and mixed it with 4 uncolonised cakes in a plastic bad (Magashes method) and then alowed it to colonise. When it was fully colonised I broke it into 5 pieces and mixed each of those 5 with 4 uncolonised cakes each. How many times can I repeat this process?

I have read conflicting answers to this. SOme say 3 some say a lot because it doesn't really matter for the home cultivator.

And some say indefinate if you switch substrates.

so.....what then? I'd imagine it could go for a while since there is more food for the mycelium...anyone else have any idea?

switch substrates? Like if I have been using BRF and I switch to WBS? Can I then go back to BRF after WBS and back and so on?

though it is with cakes, it is still considered a g2g.

a "spawn run" is the amount of time it takes for spawn to colonize a bulk substrate

yes, the amount of time it takes for it to colonize.
the amount of time it takes for the myc to colonize your casing layer is the "casing run."

If you keep adding nutrients, and the mycelium does not switch its life cycle (start to fruit), I wouldn't see why you could not keep up the G2G for more than 3 cycles. But i would not really recommend this.

I'm on a 4th G2G with EQ and I have noticed that the mycelium is not as aggressive.
