Spawning to COIR - "Treasure Coast" -.-.-.-.-.-FIRST FLUSH

BED-A-BEAST brand coir

no sterilization , no pasteurization.... just added hot water.
Each brick is about $5.
Individually wrapped. and will hold 1 gal. of hot water.
Each brick will make 2 casings. This stuff is great!

nothing added to the coir... learned from an old hand that coir is all you need, and is a substitute to poo

lined inside of trays with foil (extra long heavy duty)
spawned 1 qt. per tray, and placed 1/2 qt on top to colonize the top layer first. (to aid as a contam barrier)

Look at the dates... these jars were only 11 days old during spawning.


Time for the spawn run... actually made 8

these were made July 25-27

it's now 7-30 and here's the growth thus far.
here is what they all look like with the foil on top. MicroPore tape over the holes.

the coir is very aggressive... but we'll wait and see what happens when pinning is triggered. these will sit for a while longer before they are cased.

props to Oatman for his stunning demonstration of
the effectiveness of rez-effect tek with grain spawn.
of course coir is now known to be a better choice than
vermiculite for growth but a mix of both could be used
if overlay is a big problem.

I love Coir!!! Great job Hip, and nice watch. So did you just pasteurize the coir?

he [oatman] did not pasteurize nor sterilize his coir ,
just hydrated with hot water.
he did lose 3 out of 8 that way
so pasteurizing might still be prudent.
but if you're in a hurry
skip it.

I wonder if you could just microwave the dry coir brick after you break it up a little bit.
Coir is pretty clean, this might kill off any of the bad guys. Then just hydrate, and use.
I know dry heat isn't ideal, but in this situation it could work I would think.

Oatman does do some impressive stuff :)

i would guess that 'waving dry coir is a fire hazard
besides 'waving heats up water, and dry is dry.

i always hot water pastuerize my coir but I use a 50/50 mix of cowpoo and coir. Coir/cpoo has got to be one of the most contam resistant subs of all time.

so a substrate mixed with coir (or verm) is called ' rez-effect ' ? Then (for best results) that mixture is cased with straight coir or verm? My walmart stocks 'BlackCow' brand manure (it might be called cow manure compost too- i cant remeember) is this ordinary store bought brand cow manure adequate for use in a coir/cow poo mix? Also, after reading a ton of threads i noticed a trend of people using horse manure instead of cow manure, is there really that big a difference?

I recently bought some 'Naturebed Natural Reptile Bedding' by 'Four Paws' .. Supposedly its 100% Natural Coconut Fiber.. Ive heard some brands have some undesirable additives mixed in.. I hope im ok.. im REALLY REALLY EXCITED about the possibility of seeing my first casing in full flush. Sorry about all the questions :) I cant help it, I have a million things going through my mind.

you pretty much have it all correctly.
technically the rez-effect tek is mixing
spawn with coir and/or vermiculite .
one tip using bagged cow manure
it's often high in urine content
so best to leach [rinse thru] out with
running water then drain.

as for horse versus cow-
horses tend to eat more grass,
cows eat alot of grain [to fatten them for eating, milk production, etc.]
so horse poo is a more fibrous fluffy mix.
donkey poo even more so, imho.
