Straw Tek
    #558273 - 02/21/02 09:56 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

First of all I have read the teks and archives. I also read this Forum every day for the last 3 months (excellent).
I was growing 3 quart jars of "Psilocybe cubensis "Mazatapec". I lost 2 jars to a bright yellow mold (almost orange). Will 1 jar (3/4 full of colonized rye) be enough to inoculate wheat straw? I have a rubbermaid container that is 1.5' by 3' bottom area.
As always, Thanks.

Maybe, but it would be pushing it about as far as is possible. I would highly discourage it. Perhaps you could do a smaller tub, more like only a square foot or two, but I wouldn't recomend more than that.

Your other option would be to do a grain to peroxidated grain transfer. This is what I would suggest. I would make 4-8 more quart jars just as you would normally prepare them, maybe a little on the dry side. After sterilization, let them cool as you would normally before innoculation. Before innoculating, inject about 10 cc's of 3% hydrogen peroxide and shake the jar. Then innoculate with equal parts of the already colonized jar and shake again. Colonization should be done within a week and you can innoculate the tub of straw.
best wishes

my utmost pleasure. Report your results so that others may learn from your success, or hopefully not, your failure.
