birdseed is not spawning growth.
    #4617993 - 09/04/05 12:48 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I did the PF tek and have some good results so far on BRF and Verm.. Due to low budget i make some with birdseedbut dosent seem to be sprouting. dose birdseed take longer to spawn then Verm? its been only 3 days but thats all it took on my other jars. I also used the 1 spoonful coffee, 1 spoonful sugar, and one squirt corn syrup and boiled it in a liter of tapwater, then used it to hydrate my soil instead of just tapwater. But its working fine for my BRF and Verm Jars. Please can someone explain this?

My 1st WBS casing went way slow too. I do agree with Alounacara you may be getting too technical. If your using nuts to water your casing then your casing layer becomes like food as well.... as i understand it you dont want the casing layer to have any nutrients at all.
One thing i had to do is a cold shock, well kinda a cold shock. I took my casing and while it was in its FC i took ice and laied it all around the tray .... 24hrs later i had pinns.

there is now a little growth but all around the bottom ring edge, like all the spores went to the bottom.

My birdseed took off after about 2 days. If you have some at the bottom give them a good shake and see if that helps spread it out.

expect a mean green infection soon... your casing should consist of vermiculite
and coco coir or peat/sphagnum moss... adding all the nutrients, using birdseed
as a casing layer is dooming your project from te start
