Whole corn makes a good source of nutrient and is a suitable substitute when rye is unavailable.
Corn also has a larger surface area than rye so it covers more room grain per grain.
Corn has been enriched with a house blend of vitamins and calcium for added nutrition.
All you have to do is inject through the rubber injector site with your favorite spores.
For a 1 lb bag only 2-4 ccs is recommended for use. Any more will alter moisture content too much and invites bacteria growth.
Colonizes EXTREMELY fast!
Whole grain corn cannot be used to fruit directly from, therefore it is recommended to be used by the slightly more advanced cultivator. Any of our pre-sterilized casing soils work well with whole corn.
The colonized corn can also be transfered into more grain bags to multiply spawn (mycelium) very quickly before then transfering to bulk substrate like our casing soils or it can also be cased using a classic mushroom casing technique.
Doing grain to grain transfers saves a lot of time and spores (or culture) due to the fact that mycelium is already strong and multiplying at a very fast rate, so at the point of transfering colonization can be expected within days instead of weeks. We always recommend an optimal ratio of 1 part mycelium (spawn) to 3 parts bulk substrate (additional grain, casing soil or compost). This is specially true when transfering to a casing mix. Of course more mycelium is always better and faster, so if you want to use more that is ok.
