Do you have access to some horse or cow manure? Kangaroo? Koala?
I never cared for the rez-effect stuff too much. IMO, if you're going to prepare a substrate for a bulk grow, why not use something nutritious?
On the other hand, if you can't get those things but still want to practice, you could do a bulk grow with verm or coir...
IMO use a 1:1 spawn:substrate ratio with the verm/coir. Use a fresh bag of verm, or sterilize it before use. If using coir, hydrate with boiling water and you're good to go!
Just make sure your bulk substrate is hydrated to field capacity before you spawn to it. This means that you can only squeeze a drop or two of water out of it.
Oh yeah, and welcome back!

If they're getting light already, they will probably start pinning invitro soon after colonization, maybe less than a week.
If they're kept in the dark the whole time you can probably keep them from pinning until you get back, though they'll be drying out gradually and you'll want to dunk before the first flush. I like to dunk before the first flush anyway...
How long will you be gone?

I have multispore noced a few brf jars with Texans. After they fully colonize I am not sure what way i will go with them. Considering fruiting them or Spawning to trays. This will be my first real grow and curious as to some noob stage experiences to help my decision. If I do go to trays what would be the best tek for a fairly uneventful grow?
Check my various strains I developed from cubes around the globe, mostly Southeast Asian strains. See in Terrariums, aquariums, open trays and the Amsterdam 20,000 kilograms grown a week in dozxens of cells, with six tiers in each cell and they grow so thick they ooze out of the bottom of the tiers composted areas.
Cubes, Copes and Pan Subbs from Three farms plus sclerotia of P. mexicana and P. tampanensis from Amsterdam farms, plus some strains that grew 100 days straingth with 7-10 flushes.

You can also read the Psilocybian Cultivation: A Brief Hostory with more than 300 photos of the greatest grows ever, however there are about 20 new photos I need to add to the master book on my site., The cult book is also found on the http://www.mushroomj...org/species.htm and look for the book URL near the species cult section on that page.
