Spawn to Poo ratio (?)
    #4588600 - 08/27/05 09:34 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Is there a minimum or maximum? I was thinking that 1:4 Spawn:Poo by volume is probably the right ratio. Advice?

I am, however, a very curious individual.
I also try to be helpful.

One to five, or four is good to go.  :thumbup:

5 to 1

5 parts poo to 1 part colonized substrate.

any lower and your wasting substrate.

After spawning, I cling wrap the trays.
But - make a long slit in the cling wrap & cover the slit with MICROPORE TAPE,
to provide for some gas exchange.

In place of micropore tape (yes w/scotch tape), or as a total cover?

I prefer a cover you can see through, so I would not use tyvek as a total cover.

4-5 : 1...

I'm wondering: what is the MINIMUM that someone had working for them personally? I cant imagine commercial; mushroom farms using that ratio, that would be 2T of spawn on 10T of compost to yield lessay 1T of Agaricus. And how about the musrooms in their natural habitat who do it on two spores and a prayer?
So that cant be right.

So whats the minimum amount people had working for them?

The big boys - make LOTS of spawn.

10% is the minimum I have ever used.

In the WILd - you don't see tight packed flush's - either.
