Couldn't get a straight answer. So here it is.

 

I've heard corn doesn't have enough nutrients and it sucks.

I've heard corn is just fine.

I've been told to add supplements.

 

This is my first strong clone with sectors. So naturally, I couldn't handle this corntridiction of information. So I did literally everything.

 

Day 2 after transfer to grain.

 

Agar, B+ Gen 1, transfer 3.

 

WBS as control.

Regular corn.

Corn with calcium sulfate and calcium carbonate added and coffee added to balance ph.

Nice this is quite interesting. I've used corn for oysters before.

 

Will you report the yield of each flush and total yield of each variable?

Not for this one. My main aim is checking the viability of certain grain spawns. I'm not quite at that level yet.

Popcorn? It works fine. Some people swear by it.

popcorn works fine... I don't know that it contains significantly less nutrients than other grains but I do think that it is less dense than other grains which is why it would be less nutritious by volume. It colonizes more quickly than some grains because there is less surface area to cover with the larger grains, IMO...

 

The main issue that there seems to be with any type of corn is the amount of starches released when hydrating. You have to find a method that allows your to pour off a lot of those starches so they don't make it into your spawn jars... Too many starches in the jars can lead to slow colonization or to sections that never colonize at all.
