Yet another Poo Question..
    #4244557 - 06/01/05 04:57 PM (13 years, 24 days ago)

Would 1 pint of WBS be enough to spawn 5 lbs of poo? If not, why?

5 lbs im not sure I usually go by volume. If its lower then 15% volume the pint jar to the 5lbs u might run into trouble. I personally shoot for 20%

1 pint sounds very low. I use around 2 quarts WBS to 5 LBS. and it colonizes in < 1 week, but I wouldn't want to go much less than that.

1 pint is enough to get the job done, but over a very long period of time.

The delays in substrate colonization may induce pinning in some areas while the other areas colonize. You will also expose the substrate to contaminates for prolonged periods of time and increase the chances of failure.

I would use that one pint jar to do a grain to grain transfer with some quart jars. You want to have between 2-3 quart jars for 5-8 pounds of horse manure. 1 quart may even do the job.

How about 3 pints spawned into 2.5 lbs of poo that had 10% verm added?

What would the trouble be? Length of time for colonization leaving room for contams?

Its enough but not recomended. You should use more. You want bulk substrates to colonize as quickly as possible. More spawn=faster substrate colonization. Most Bulk subs are pasterized, not sterilized so you want mycelium to get a foot hold before contams get a foot hold. Get it, got it?

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

i tried to get my reply in right after divers but people cut in, so i was talkig to kalix. I not sure what exact ratio would be best but 1 part spawn to 10 parts bulk sub should be good
