Is no one growing on cased wheat straw?
    #733372 - 07/09/02 11:06 AM (16 years, 3 months ago)

I have been growing for sometime now and going to step it up a notch. Something to around 40 sqf on cased wheat straw. My question is who has tryed this large of a growing room and procedure? I'm using 20 trays with 2sqf of growing area for each tray. I plan on compacting the hell out of it to get a depth of 8 inches with a 1 1/2 casing. Rye will be my spawn run and mixed after straw pasturization, I'm also going to use McMagic. Thers a question who's tried this stuff it's from www.MushroomMagic.Com. Anyway I've converted a entire room into a grow chamber complete with air lock and all. If you want I'll post some pics it's cost me a small fortune but I must say I'm quite proud of it. Anyway I'm rambleing what I'm looking for is a PRO with growing on bulk substrates and large room enviromental control. Just PM would be great just want some of your opninions and triumphs and failers. Plus I have had really good luck with my past growing so I have incorprated some of my own Ideas into this room.

Ahh what the hell am I talking about? I just like to make up stories. In short, I'm full of Sh$t!!!!!!

my neighbor's cat, (pudetat) in addition to the ususal order for tunafish, recently demanded that i provide her with pasturised straw, for tray culture. she uses PF style cakes that are crumbled using a cheese grater as spawn.

recently she showed me some failures that seem to be mostly due to under-innoculation, and or too deep, and too large a tray.

her subsequent attempts with more innoculant, are reported to be doing very well. in addition, she reports that it seems to work better if the substrate is shallow at the edges, and mounded toward the middle. as the mycelium grows, the whole mass tends to pull away from the edges of the tray, which tends to invite contams to sneek past the casing onto exposed uncollonized straw below. also when the mass is fully colonized, apparantly sufficient light gets down there to make pins start at the edge of the tray, which makes harvesting messy. also note, that as size and depth of the tray and substrate increase, so do difficulties and contams, so the trays you describe are in the neighborhood of as big as most of us would want to go.

i don't know who else she's sharing them with, but i know she'll do anything for a tuna-fix.

in conclusion
1. don't bite off more than you can chew.
2. mound the tray
3. use lots of innoculant, and cover all exposed straw with innoculant and then case.
