How long will it take..
    #4328322 - 06/23/05 01:40 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Hi, I have a quick question. How long will it take for 2 quarts of colonized wbs Cubensis to run through a quarter bale of pasteurized straw at optimal 86 degree temps? No poo.

The bales I'm talking about are the small ones commonly available at arts and craft stores. The total size of the partially compressed substrate mass is slightly less than the size of a basketball.

Thanks in advance!

You're saying that because you don't know the answer or what? I think it ought to be relatively easy for a seasoned cultivator to provide me with a rough estimate in days.

No, I'm saying that because it depends on to many factors...exact percentage of water in the straw, how much you chopped it, the exact amount of pressure you used to compact it, the exact amount you fill your quarts of WBS up, the moisture content of the WBS, how well you break up the WBS, how well you mix the WBS, the humidity of your incubation chamber, temperature fluctuations, ect ect ect...not only would you need to know the answers to all of these but somone would need to know exactly the amount of time each individual variable effects things..

I can tell you anywhere from 3-14 days I guess....I've had straw anywhere in that range depending on how well everything was done.

alright thanks. 2 quarts is a lot of spawn for that much straw I think it should take no more than around 5 days but I wanted to see what some of you think.

Id say that 5 days is a good expectation only if everything is optimal.
