How I spawn to poo
    #4512088 - 08/08/05 11:21 PM (12 years, 10 days ago)

A lot of people ask about spawning to poo, and what is involved.  Here is what I do, and hopefully it will help some of you.

If starting from dried horse poo, take the extra time to crumble the poo thoroughly prior to hydrating.  Or do it while hydrating, doesn't matter.  Ensuring that your substrate is airy and fibrous will pay off BIG TIME in colonization speeds.  I see a lot of people with large chunks in their substrate.  Properly hydrated and broken down, should look like this:



Remove fresh spawn from your jars into the poo, and crumble until you have as many inoculation points as possible.  Mix the entire substrate well, you don't want uncolonized spots on the bottom.



After crumbling well, and before mixing into poo:



Once mixed well, make sure you get the top layer as even as possible.  This is going to be a major factor when it comes to an even pinset later on.  Mountains and valleys = bad.  Level as you can possibly get it, and don't compact the poo at all.



Cover with perforated lid, and incubate at 70-75F.



That's pretty much how I spawn.  Just to cover the two things I mentioned again:  1) get the texture as even as possible, get out all the balls and chunks.  2)  make sure your top layer is level.

Get these things down paired with good casing techniques, and a reward awaits you. :mushroom2:

what is your ratio of spawn to poo diver? maybe add in why you incubate at 70-75, some peeps will wonder i am sure.
poo creates heat during colonization so there is no need to incubate it like jars.
looks good bro
peace

ok, so is the layering technique just a preference then? Im planning on spawning to poo next run i do and i seem to see some people say layer and some people say just mix it. Kind of confused as to whats best.

i would guess mixing it is the most common method.

Check their website for the prices. :rolleyes:


Good post Diver.  The pics tell a thousand words.

I would like to request more, like pics that show the progress all the way through until it is ready for casing, and maybe even up until fruiting time.

breaking the colonized grain up with a food processor and mixing it throughout the poo will create the most inoculation points.
