Ambitious first time grower using rye seed

Recommended Posts

Sneeves

I purchased Scott's Turf Rye Seed (can't remember the exact full name), however, when I opened the bag I noticed the seeds coated in blue.  I figured I made a mistake by not purchasing all natural seeds.  But I thought I would rinse them out good, soak for 24 hrs, boil, and PC them.  I just inoculated a couple minutes ago.

Does anyone foresee these jars being a high contamination probability in regards to the blue coating even with the Pressure Cooker working it's magic??

I've read a couple posts of members using the same brand, but I'm not sure if I got a peculiar kind.  Thanks for any input.

Do you still have the bag? Find out what's coating those seeds. Look on the internet if the bag isn't marked. I know the blue is fertilizer, but if there is fungicide on them..... that's not good.

Woah wait...you can't grow fungus if there's fungicide? Dafuq? ;)

Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed - Perennial Ryegrass Mix

"Contains Watersmart Plus coating to absorb x2 amount of water than uncoated seed."

I've looked at a couple of the jars at there's drops of moisture on the sides of the jar which weren't there after I PC'ed them :(
Is this a fuck up batch?

Maybe I should have started with cakes instead of seeds.

I live in the midwest, so I'm sure there's a feed store nearby.  I can search for one.  Why do you ask @MushFlush?

I need to step back and rethink the method I want to implement to grow.  I believe I simply got too excited after watching a couple YouTube videos on growing, then went out and bought supplies soon after.  I just discovered this wonderful forum a couple days ago.

Is Mushzombie's 6qt dubtub tek recommended to follow for a first timer?

I got a little to hasty and over confident with a bulk rye seed mono tub tek.  What was I thinking?!?! :blink:

Bulk is just as easy, you just got the wrong shit to work with.

You can get several good grains to work with at a feed store. Oats, millet, wild bird seed, etc. What I would do is follow the 6qt tek, using wbs. Many a newcomer has had success with that tek the first time. Many more still use it for every grow. It's a solid tek.

Thank you @MushFlush and @mushmouth.  I'll gather myself together, take it slow and follow the 6qt tek.  I'll keep you updated on these jars however.

Two sides to 2 jars I inoculated.  I have 4 more that look similar.  Thoughts?  Should I shake soonish?

20 to 30% so you probably could have shaken that first jar a bit earlier.

I have 3 tubs in the spawn run stage, however, there isn't any sort of incubation.  I keep my apartment around 72-75 degrees.  Is this fine?  Will I have to prolong the usual wait time of 7 days since the temp is lower?

I'm following the 6 quart dub tub tek.  Thanks!

I would think those temps would slow u down but not to much .i run 75 to 78 are so.so I'd just go on the long side of the spawn recommendations wich is 7 to 11 days if I remember right might want to check the tec.

I'm going to implement the casing/fruiting stage tomorrow.  How long before I should expect to harvest?  Thanks for the information.

I'm moving to Cali from the Midwest in 6 weeks.  Don't want the move to mess things up.
