Newbie spawn question...
    #6261920 - 11/08/06 04:05 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I've decided use my fully colonized rye to spawn to poo for my first grow attempt, then case in 50/50+  My question is, if I spawn the jar into two containers (half in one tub half in the other) with a 1:10 ratio (half quart rye to 10 quarts poo/vermic. mixture) will I get a better yield than if I spawn the whole jar into one tub with a 1:10 ratio (1 quart rye to 10 quarts poo/vermic. mixture)    :confused:
Assume that I have good sterile procedures and I don't get any contams either way.
This seems logical, I just need a sounding board to confirm.

Using a higher spawn to sub ratio won't necessarily increase your yields, but it will allow the sub to colonlize more rapidly thus reducing the window for contamination.

I like to use a high ratio, about 1 to 5 or so.

Waiting on things to colonize can really suck. I'm waiting on 2 monotubs to colonize and I spawned with BRF cakes of all things. It's doing well, but taking forever.

If you have the spawn to spare I think you should be liberal with it.

But as said, it'll work out at any ratio.

I'd agree go higher spawn rate as high as you can. 1:3 to 1:5, especially for yer first go.

what'd you spawn to bigswang?

One to ten is the ratio to use with straw, not manure.
I wouldn't go over one to four with manure or compost. One to three is better. Remember, the rye is a major player in the finished substrate, not just the method of inoculation.

I always seem to have way more spawn than stuff to spawn too,I don't even know the last time I saw a horse in person and I'm about to embark on a coir grow because at least I can find that,anyway I often have more spawn than I need so I just toss it in with another casing and the ones with more spawn usually do grow nicer
