Using spent horse poo to spawn?
    #4514687 - 08/09/05 04:22 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I was wondering something. When my h/poo is spent and has stopped flushing, could I crumble it and mix it in with some freshly pasturized poo? I mean, if the spent poo is 100% colonized and contaminant free, wouldn't it colonize the fresh poo? Has anyone tried this with success? If anyone has any pros/cons they think would be associated with doing this, please let me know.

You could once or twice, but remember, just because there are no contams growing on it, doesnt mean there arent any contaminant spores that the mycelium just wont let germinate, or that theres no nutrients to germinate. Even if theres a few spores, dung should be able to fight it off..but its a slight more risk that the casing wont work because of it then if you used fresh spawn.

Besides that, you'll tire out the mycelium after a while. Its the same mycelium colonizing the new poo, that originally colonized the jar..you have to think of their cells as replicating, and after so much replication, break downs occur. The spawn will get slower and fruit poorer, and if you did it a few times it could stall out before finishing. The more spawn you use to and the less new poo you use the better though, since each generation it has to work less.

It only take 2 weeks to create new jars of spawn though, and it takes a casing at least 3 or 4 to fruit, so its so easy to create new stuff..

Good points. I was wondering why I had never heard about anyone doing this. You always hear about G2G transfers, but never P2P. Thanks for the tips and I guess I'll just let my myc rest :smirk:

You know, I got a really old casing, that I already broke up after 3 flushes (2 casings into one thicker one) and its given me quite a bit more...I also happen to have alot of extra horse poo that is wet and needs to be used now..I think I'm gonna give it a shot and make a really big friggen casing out of it with some old poo...just to see what happens. The casings are on their 6th flush now..and I was gonna have to toss the poo, couldnt figure out what to d with it..thanks for reminding me this idea can occasionally serve a purpose though.
