Bulk Sub Colonizing Q's with Pics

Recommended Posts


Today I took my first peek at my bulk spawn, need some imput please. 

Bulk: 33% field hpoo- properly aged,33% course verm, 33% coir ( 10% gypsum and lime as needed) 

60qt tubs, 6 -1 3/4" holes,( 4 sub level, 2 up top on ends), all holes sealed with packing tape, and bulk covered with foil, 8-10 small holes in foil with micropore tape. Lids on, but not latched, fair good fitting lid, Kept at a constant 78, with rye jars. These are my first 2 tubs, first and only time I have peeked. Tubs will be cased, then put directly into fruiting. 

Photo 1: Treasure Coast, been bulk spawning for 10 days. Very little myc on top. Moisture seems good, visually.  No visible contam, but seems very slow. Should any patch work be done? Thoughts or advice? Overall the Treasure Coast was slower colonizing the rye jars, perhaps a week longer then all my other current strains. Perhaps it's inheritantly slow? 

Photo 2: Golden Teacher, spawning bulk for 7 days, much more advanced then the 10 day tub, photo 1. No visible signs of contams, moisture looks good, sealed tub as well. Overall, I'm pleased by the looks. Thoughts, any immediate steps? 


Only difference in prep is tub 1, the slow one, sub was pastuerized, second tub sterilized. Wanted to test before I picked one method. Going with sub sterilization, just easier over all, and seems like faster spawn rate.

      Bullshit. One of your questions was,  "Does spores have magic in them also which makes them stronger?" Not to mention your inability to comprehend many replies.

      Lmao i will do that! The other tub is cased.. Just waiting for it to fruit!!! I got a huge ass mono that is almost colonized, im gonna put wax paper on top of the sub so i dont get plastic and what not and use a hot can and melt some holes and use tyvek double maybe triple tyvek unless i can get time n get polyfill or you guys think i can just leave the lid ofd centered and gapped? I can mist and fan if i have to... I will keep y'all posted lmk wat ya think  They do look bare without a casing.... Oh well

      Serious about what? I just wondered why they were stronger before the veil breaks. Trying to put things together. I guess it was a stupid question. Sorry

      And I stand corrected on the generic Tyvek too Bro ! Lol Forgive the dumb question that I have to ask. You do have a one-hole lid, rubber side down, underneath those Tyvek lids right ?
