More is better?
    #4707243 - 09/24/05 11:31 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Just ordered 20lbs of poo. Planning to dump it all in a rubbermaid container with dimensions approximately = 36"L X 15"W X 15"H. My question is how many quarts of spawn would you normally use and if I doubled that number, would colonization be faster, shrooms be bigger, ect? Thanks. :mushroom2:


p.s. used search already. =)

I don't think the shrooms would be bigger just from adding more spawn, but I it would speed up colonization. Also if you put all that poo in that one container and the poo is thicker then like 4-6 inches then you are just waisting your poo and if it gets a contam then your deff screwed.

too much poo depth (6+ inches i believe) causes excess heat in the poo's core or something along those lines.

Keep your substrate depth around 4" or so. and use 2 quarts for ever 5lb of mushroom you use.

Enjoy the grow! and take pictures!

Yea I was reading and I came to the conclusion that separating all that into seperate tubs would yield more. Also, basically no amount of spawn is overkill if you like super duper fast colonization. :grin:

p.s. I'll definately take pictures for you guys.

It's not so much heat as it is lack of oxygen. And it's more like 14-18 inches.

But I do agree that much more than 4" is not the most efficient use of substrate.
