dung/straw substrate for jars
    #623923 - 05/01/02 11:54 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Does anyone know a good dung/straw subtrate mix for use in pint or quart jars? I've looked around for a good recipe but I've only found straw teks for bulk production.

Good bye.

I don't think you are going to find anything covering this. Straw and dung are used for bulk production because they are cheap. I would stick with BRF, rye berries or other whole grains, or birdseed if I were using jars.

Just another spore in the wind.

why is that? is straw a worser substrate for some reason?

i was thinking about it, and i dont understand why people use so much the PFtek?
i mean, for a couple of few times its fine and safe, but making spawn and colonizing straw looks much more count prodactive.
a few days ago when i was gathering some straw for experimenting and i realized that i can just spawn 1 time with a cake and then every time i want to spawn some new straw i'll take a piece of the 1st straw ball and use it the spawn the new batch. something wrong with my thought?

If you're using bulk substrates, there's no need for jars.

Spawning from used substrate will likely have contamination eventually, but people have done what you're talking about.

If you want to make straw cakes have a look at this thread:
