    My first attempt at making spawn I just took a grow kit from Amazon, broke it up between layers of wet card board, and once it was completely colonized I gave it light and misting to fruit.

    Can I use the spent cardboard to make more spawn and keep the process going?

    As a beginner should I follow this process of using spawn to make spawn or should I get spore syringes and inoculate substrate using those? Is there any specific reasons why I would do one or the other?

    At this point the meconium is going to be pretty weak a d will prolly contain are pretty quick. I wojld nkt waste your time and effort in it... Start fresh. It's pretty easy if you spend a day or two reading and askjng a few questions here. Good luck

    Eventually it becomes weak and subject to contams.

    Search out.info on.dishes, slants and liquid culture.
    A still air box and a pressure cooker is a great way to start.
