growth on compost stopped
    #1109239 - 12/04/02 08:15 AM (18 years, 7 months ago)

A friend spawned some Scotts 3-1 a while back and it still is not fully colonized. It has been more than a week and a half. The compost is still moist. it is about 4 inches deep 12inX12in. I think his temp was too high. the temp was lowered, but the mycelia looks like it isn't growing much anymore. Did it die or what's going on? Anyone have experience with this? What should i tell him?

could be too moist, or a contam could have gotten hold of it.

Sounds like contamination, most likely bacterial.
