BRF Spawn->Dung&straw colonizing fails...why?!?
    #619660 - 04/26/02 05:04 PM (21 years, 10 months ago)

A friend attempts this method :

Four pints are colonized with a pure clone. After full colonization, they are spawned on to a fully pasturized mix of 1 part dung 3 parts wheat straw.

After approximately 36 hours, no signs of colonization. The crumbled up spawn looks like lttle pebbles of white rock in the dung. No strings of mycelium.

Is this person checking too soon? This is his guess.

What other problems may have occured to make a spawn tek a failure? Temperature is around 75-80 deg F. It has a good environment to work with.

well..........yes proably, your crumbled parts will take a little while to puff up like little cotton balls and then it will spread out, it sounds like you should change your ratio a little bit in the future to have more dung than straw, closer to 75% dung and 25% straw, or at least more dung than straw, its supposed to be a little better

What is your(directed to everybody out there) sucess rate of spawning colonized brown rice flour jars on to pasturized wheat straw?

Just wanted to know if there had been any problems with spawning from your experience.

I've been spawning flour cakes & grains into pasteurized wheat straw for the last couple months, and having great success. Big, meaty, healthy looking fruits. Haven't gotten many flushes - usually contams after 3 - hope to get better at keeping them sterile as I move along. I put my flour cakes in big ziplock type bags when I pull them out of the jars and bust them into bits. Then I leave the bag in a closet for a day or two and use it to spawn my wheat. I haven't run side-by-side flour/grain tests, but I can tell you that both type of spawn have fruited well for me, with several cub varieties so far.

>After approximately 36 hours
Be patient...in my experience, mycelium take bout 24 hours to recover and 24-48 hours to start colonizing the substrate.(from an observer point of view)
The most common error i can think of is making the substrate too wet, making colonisation impossible or not complete.
Otherwise, if pasteurisation has been well done, it should work like a charm.
