3N1 Help Needed Quick!
    #962811 - 10/15/02 01:47 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Alright - I spawned 2 1/2 pints with 3n1 on the 6th. I was reading the 3n1 bag and all it contained was the following :
peat moss, composted forest products, perlite, vermiculite, limestone, and some other random insignificant ingediants. my question is that this pretty much is just a casing mixture similar to a 50/50+.....so am I wasting my time using this as a bulk substrate and should I just initiate pinning now instead of waiting for 100% colonization and then adding a 50/50+ casing with is pretty much what the spawn is already mixed with? It is about 40% colonized.
Also, the mycelium coming up looks really crystalized....maybe too much moisture in there and water droplets are forming all over the mycelium? How can I stop this if its bad, is it? Thanks.

In reply to:

In my experience, it has cow manure in it as well.

In reply to:

I feel that 3n1 makes for a poor bulk substrate, but since you're this far along, go ahead and wait for it to get to 100% and then case it with 50/50+.
