Dr. Bluethumb's Compost
    #548723 - 02/12/02 08:54 AM (22 years, 2 months ago)

I have a few questions about using compost:

About how many lbs of compost should be used for 3-4 1/4 pints of spawn?
How deep of a layer should I go with the compost/spawn?
Once the spawn and compost is all mixed up, should you only be able to see the compost, or will there be spawn on top as well mixed in? Or should you bury the spawn in the compost?
Once I mix it all, should I mist it well?
Once its mixed, should I cover it with saran wrap and incubate - what temps,RH?
Should Ikeep air exchange limited during incubation, or should I have air exchange, and just keep it in darkness?
Do I need to add a casing layer after it has fully colonized?
thanks.

--How ever many you want to the more spawn the less time it takes to colonize.

How deep of a layer should I go with the compost/spawn?
--I use 3 inches

Once the spawn and compost is all mixed up, should you only be able to see the compost, or will there be spawn on top as well mixed in?

--You will see some pieces of your spawn litle white pieces

Once I mix it all, should I mist it well?
--Depends on how dry it is.

Once its mixed, should I cover it with saran wrap and incubate - what temps,RH?
--it's up to you.

Should Ikeep air exchange limited during incubation, or should I have air exchange, and just keep it in darkness?
--A little air exchange is fine in the dark is good.

Do I need to add a casing layer after it has fully colonized?
--If you know when to birth and how to avoid overlay then no casing layer is needed
