Case @ 100% Wheat/Poo Colonization?
    #1010537 - 10/31/02 04:45 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

I have a 60/40 wheat/poo mixture, it's about 60% colonized--- Should I wait till all of the straw and surface area is covered with mycellium and then case, or can I case now since I am seeing lots of patches of mycellium?

How does the water content seem? Usually casing isn't needed with poo/compost, it holds water very well. Maybe for later flushes if it dries out a bit.

Of course, if you have 60% straw, that may change things a bit as straw usually dries out and needs casing. Thats why I prefer poo/compost over straw.

There is a tremendous amount of condensation on the saran warp.. Looks like I should have dried everything out a bit more ... oh well.

the moisture won't hurt anything, i've always got a lot too, the only prob with it is it can get contaminated easier, just make sure you keep it in a semi-sterile environment and it should be fine...let it colonize 100% though or it will get contaminated...once 100% is achieved mycel has great power to fight off contams..

:tongue:
