My bulk spawn too dry??
    #11306219 - 10/23/09 03:26 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Ok, so this is my first time spawning to Coir. I had popcorn colonized and mixed in with coir/verm. I've done bulk grows before but never with coir. So I looked today at my trays and they seem a bit dry.
Please correct me if I am wrong. They are covered w/ a foil lid with holes in them covered in micropore tape. There is condesation on the container and inside foil.

So, does this look dry to you? (please only answer if you know, not "think" lol)

Impossible to tell how wet/dry those are by the pics.

I DO know that every time you open them, they are getting dryer, as well as opening the door for contamination.

My advice is: Close them up. Forget they exist for at least ten days. To determine if they are ready for fruiting, look at them THROUGH the walls of the tubs. Do not open until Christmas!

(christmas = fruiting chamber :wink:)

:goodluck:

no one can know if its dry without being there.  but I do know you shouldnt have opened it untill it was fully colonized, now you have exposed it to possible contams landing on your uncolonized substrate.  contams grow faster than shroom myc.

also giving it fresh air too early will give you uneven and sparce pinsets. instead of several flushes you will get 1 long flush with a few mushies growing at a time instead of being covered with mushies and harvesting all at once and dunking for flush #2 and so on.

just by the pics it looks fine but dont open it any more, use clear plastic cling wrap to cover it next time so you can see/check it with out all of the exposure.

I open them in a room thats sprayed with oust. So I'm not worried about contams. But I normally dont open them. But I just wanted to see from above b/c from the sides it looked wonky
