Fruiting to early. Any help is much appreciated!
    #11176107 - 10/03/09 06:33 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

yeah so. im spawning to bulk for the first time with rye grain to a coir/verm 50/50 sub and thought of it like how a casing works. Which with a casing you can throw it straight in the FC after noticing mycelium on the top. Then I found out you have to let it colonize 100% and then consolidating is recommended  for best results. I had my tray in a fruiting chamber uncovered for about a half a day maybe more with a few hours of light. Did I just ruin that tray?? Or should I just take it out and recover it and let it finish!?1?

I'm sure you're fine. Cover it with tinfoil, poke some holes, and let sit for 4 or 5 days, then check on it. Throw into FC when colonized.

Allow for 100% colonization plus one week for best results.  This applies to mushroom substrates.  It matters not whether cakes or bulk.

This doesn't mean your project will fail if you don't.  It simply means that fruiting will rarely occur before that week anyway, so why not leave it sealed up to preserve moisture and let the mycelium digest a bit more food before exposing to fruiting conditions?  I find it odd that so many people around here are stuck with what is 'good enough' and 'the way it was done ten years ago' when better ways have been found.  The commercial farms always let the substrates sit for a week to a month after full colonization.  Why?  Because fruiting room real estate is at a premium, but colonization space is cheap and easy to maintain.  By allowing for consolidation of the substrate, the eventual flush is faster, larger, and more even.

The astute grower will use the consolidation time to start more projects so that when the first one comes out of fruiting conditions, he has more ready to go in.

So you think it will continue to colonize. I thought light and humidity initiated fruiting.

Yeah, I think it'll continue to colonize. When fully ready, mine still take about 1 - 1.5 weeks to fruit.
