Brf + Wormcastings substrate
    #598171 - 04/04/02 02:19 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I am thinking about replacing half of the BRF in a PF cake with worm castings to see if there is a decrease in the colonization time and if it helps speep up the process of acclimating the cakes to a worm casting based bulk TEK.
Has anyone tried this or does anyone have any comments or suggestions to help me out with this?

I get the theory, kinda like when you mix soil from your yard and mix it with the soil you use to start plants so they will grow into it easier, sounds feasible and pretty damn thoughtful, good thinkin'

I decided to try out growing with 50/50 BRF/Worm Castings on April 3rd. I just checked them last night (April 13th) and this is what I found:

I used worm castings along with BRF in 10 PF jars and innoculates 5 with Eq and 5 with B+ and did 10 normal BRF jars (5 Eq, 5B+) to use as a control on the colonization speed

I lost 1 B+ BRF jar to cobweb mold and lost 1 B+ wormcasting/Brf jar to green mold so far.

3 0f the Eq wormcasting/BRF jars are fully colonized with the other 2 not far behind
The most fully colonized Eq BRF jar is at about 60% with the least colonized at about 10-15%

2 of the B+ wormcasting/Brf jars are fully colonized with another close behind and the last remaining one at about 75%
The most fully colonized B+ BRF jar is at about 50% with the least colonized at about 5-15%

All the jars have been kept in the same incubator at between 80 and 84 degrees. The addition of wormcastings to the PF jars seems to have sped up the colonization to almost twice as fast

I'm going to do another 20 jars to see if it works out the same way again and I'll post my results from them as well
