Switching from PF Tek to poo spawn
    #4611576 - 09/02/05 05:55 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Afoaf is in the middle of their first grow and currently have 9 pint jars at around 33% colonization. There were originally 13, but 4 were contamed due to improper inoculation (syringe was sterilized but then left out for about 10 minutes before inoculation). His plan was to birth the cakes onto a wire mesh hovering slightly above the terrarnium floor. He was reluctant to start with one of the more advanced teks, but after a ton of reading up he feels he can handle the challenge. Would you guys recommend that he continue with the PF Tek and try spawning to poo next time? Also, the terranium just barely has enough room for the 9 cakes (about 12" x 24"), would he even have enough room for all of the pans?

Steps would usually be
pf jars
pf jars crumbled and cased
grains cased
bulk substrate spawned with grain and cased.

I went straight from pf jars to grains spawned 50/50 with straw and cased.
Now I just case straight grains, I find it easier than pf jars.
