That's Crazy...
    #4317462 - 06/20/05 04:59 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

So how about, straw is awesome...let me explain.

A foaf wanted some straw...I had NO pillow cases or socks left...:rolleyes:..So I grabbed a Gallon ziplock bag...Stuffed it and packed it with straw...

Well...I poked some holes in it and let it sit over night...It sat there for a whole WEEK (7 days)...My friend never came and got it.

I was about to trash it b/c I never use old shit, it's not my thing...

I looked at it and smelt it and I was in shock :whoa:, It smelt like straw still and not like bacteria..Plus it had some signs of FF on it...

I took out a pf jar that colonized half way and stopped (water pooling on the bottom of it was why it stopped)..and I use another one that was half way as wel..so 1 pint to a gallon bag basically...

So I dug a hole in the middle of the "straw bag" and put some spawn in the middle...then I put a little bit on eat side...And it was hard to more the straw...It was packed remeber :smirk:

To my Amazement, it began to colonize...and Everyone said that straw contams...Guess that's not my case...ever..:rotfl:..

Anyways I had a Q acually..

Where the spawn is...it has rhizo (yes!)....And also...The Entire Bag is Covered w/ Rhizomorphic growth..BUT...it's not sourrounded by white myc.....:confused:

Can you still have Rhizo growth when the white puffy myc. is lagging behind?

I'd take pics but I can't make them high res., so you would probably just see a blob...lol

Thankx

Is it gonna go outside? If so, I would let it complete colonization outdoors, so it can get used to it's new home, if it's not for outdoors, you should let it colonize as long as you can bear to wait :wink:

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'm not sure exactly what you mean by that but rhizos can grow in the same bag as cottony myc, along side of eachother, and the rhizos will generally grow faster.

:rotfl:

Shut up! hahaha.

Fuck!

Need a GD camera.

Not what I meant exactly Scat.

I'll try and re-phrase.

Cotton myc. stops here=..........,................=This is where the rhizos go. All the way out there.

Never seen such agressive growth on straw before.

It had FF on it...:shrug:

What a dumb fucking question.

HOld on a sec. :bongload:

Ok, :grin:, better.

I had some Maz. that I spawned to straw with hominy back in the day. The straw was fairly long pieces (bout 4 inch long) and used a very small amount of spawn. Anyway... the hominy got all puffy and only spread out as very long strands of rhizo's. (never did fully colonize, It dried out) I think the lack of moisture was why the rhizos spread that way.
But yeah, I've seen it, with my own 4 eyes...

On a side note: I've found that properly pasteurized straw to be fairly contam resistant in my own experience. Never a problem getting 4 flushes with a dunk after 2nd flush. Just my experience tho....

Same here.

I've Never had it contam either.

And i'm not worried about it drying out, it's perfect, so far.

And i'm not worried at ALL about stunted growth. I'd just cut out uncolonized parts and go from there.

And I never cut my straw, lol, fuck that.

It's fairly long as well.
