A few double tub questions
    #4315370 - 06/20/05 12:04 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Alright... first things first, thanks for the help! :smile:

So... quart-wise, how much straw do you use per tub (shredded)?  And how much spawn per tub (quart-wise)?  Is it ok to just pasturize the straw instead of sterilizing it (I know on eatyualives post, he talks about sterilizing it instead... hmm)? And finally, what does "screening" worm castings do for you?  I can't get any h/poo up here and gotta go with the worm stuff... and was wondering if that screening thing was really necessary.

Many thanks again :smile:

shredd the straw with a blender if you can but I have no idea how much straw or spawn u should use it depends on the size of your tubs...theres no reason to sterilize straw...stick with pasteurization

Ok will do... What sort of ratio should I be looking at?  40verm / 40castings / 20 straw?

I'm using 70 quart tubs... I figure 1.5 quarts spawn should be enough for each? Sound good? :laugh:

I don't use straw, but 1.5 quarts doesn't sound adequate for spawning in a 70 quart tub. If you use a 70 quart tub and have a recommended substrate depth of 3-4 inches, you'll eat up at least 3-4 weeks waiting for 1.5 quarts to colonize that much substrate.

How deep will your substrate be? Am I missing something?

Crazychemist used about 4.5 inches of compated straw w/ his 70L sterlite tupp. With great results.

Psilocybe cubensisi "Ecuador" on straw

I wasn't questioning the size of the tub, just the amount of spawn to substrate. Crazychemist used 4.5 quarts of spawn, which is a little more in line than 1.5.
