newb question about jar ratios
    #4291011 - 06/13/05 01:41 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

This is my 3rd grow, I have 2 successful grows under my belt. Over the last couple of days I have prepared 38 1/2 pint jars PF-tek style, but I think that I may have made the stoner mistake of getting the ratios wrong. IIRC, the ratio I used was 4:1:1 verm:brf:water instead of the 2:1:1 that is reccomended. I was "sure" that the ratio I was using was correct, but obviously I was mistaken. So should I toss the jars and redo everything?(not happy about all that wasted effort). Or just shoot them up and see what happens? Or should I just say screw BRF and redo them with popcorn?(which I have been eyeing lately, I like the fast colonization)

thanks

I'd save your spores and try it again

dont waste spores on these jars. you need to redo all of them with a 2:1:1 ration verm/brf/water. For better yields, faster colonization, and more fruiting substitute dark rye flour for brf and inoculate with LC.

I said screw it and picked up some SBP(store bought poo) that I will be spawning with WBS.... hopefully my first experiment with SBP will be as good as many that I have read about...

i agree the vermiculite will do nothing but soak up the water thus keeping nutrients from your mycelium.
