New Cheap Substrate Idea!!
    #4685543 - 09/20/05 11:12 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

the only place that sells rye berries is 40 miles from my house.... and i drive a nice 10speed bicycle, so naturally i decided to try something new for the next round of spawning ( i used rye berries in 20 qt jars with only 2 contams). I was debating between the wild birdseed, popcorn, and cracked corn. i went to the feed store and after the usual "what do you need it for" ... "um, uh, these aren't the droids you're looking for" they showed me their Chicken Scratch. i paid $5 for a 25lb bag. it consists of cracked corn, milo, and wheat. basically its WBS with cracked cord instead of millet. i just wanted some feed back on this, I'm going to PC today and clone tomorrow... i guess ill have to let you know how it works out. any tips before i start? Ive never used either, and i hear cracked corn can be tricky.
thanks

sounds like it should work just fine.. i never used cracked corn but i do use popcorn.. i dont see why there would be any diff.. i would say just soak 24 hrs, simmer 1 hr, pc 45 min @ 15psi.  but thats just me.. :smile: gl!!

I've used it successfully. Well, by "it" I mean the scratch I get locally. In the end I decided I like the heavy millet % I can get from a local generic WBS. But the scratch did colonize, and I usually had less trouble with busted kernels and stuff from all that milo.

Good luck.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.
