Has Anyone Standardized a messurement for blood meal???
    #4700626 - 09/23/05 03:15 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I have searched the forum and only returned 3 out of 58 posts that contain blood meal were kinda what I was looking for. I have been reading a lot about blood meal lately so i bought some, I was wondering if anyone has a measurement or ratio of substrate to blood meal that increases potency but won't kill the mycelium. any input would be greatly appreciated.

id say 1-2 tablespoons per pound of dry substrate. I think thats the typical measurement but it could be teaspoon. I've never personally done it but from what i understand you really don't want to over do it.

I've been looking up putting blood meal into the 50/50 casing layer, unfortunately I haven't found any posts on that. Maybe that much nitrogen at that point would be disastrous.

You haven't found any posts on that because your casing layer shouldn't contain nutes.

you should aim for a 2.5%N level of wet substrate.
Problems are:
The grain already has nitrogen in it.
Most levels of N given are of dry grain.
Added blood will be concentrated on the outside of the grain rather than the inside, so the outside may be too rich and burn the myc (BRF would be a good idea since the mixture of blood/BRF/verm will be more homogenous)

I grew Orissa India on eight cups of h poo to which I added 1 heaping tsp of blood meal. I had the best pin set yet. Previously I had added 1/4 cup of blood meal to about twice that amount of h poo, and all strains on that mixture stalled. Here are the OI pics:




Total yield was over 300 grams on the first flush. The second flush was over 200 grams. I'm still waiting on the third flush, and my first B+ just started pinning on the same mixture.

I'm growing all strains on rye then spawning in pasteurized h poo. The casing layer is 60/40 vermiculite/coco coir.
