Spawn to bulk day 2 help please...
    #11343632 - 10/29/09 07:57 AM (8 years, 21 days ago)

I added my spawn to a bulk substrate of hpoo, coir, coffee 2 days ago.

I just checked it and there are what look like balls of mycelium ontop of the bulk sub.

Any ideas what it is or what to do?

Peace.

Yeah, just wait. That is all there is to do right now. Hopefully you got your pasteurization correctly and if so. Check on it in a couple of days.

Pics would be good...

How did you mix the spawn into the bulk?, could it not be a piece of spawn thats starting to fluff up and colonize?

I fail to see how you could think there is a problem here. You are trying to grow mushrooms, not carrots - the formation of additional mycelium is the entire idea behind spawning to bulk. If you see carrots popping up from the bulk sub, THEN you've got a problem.

As long as you don't see anything growing in there that isn't mycelium, then you're fine.

What you should do now is wait. Wait until the entire thing is covered in mycelium, and then case it, and then introduce it into fruiting conditions.

...and don't check on it ten times a day, a watched pot never boils :p

My motto is this... if it is white, then it's alright!

Any color other then WHITE is a problem. White "balls" could be hyphal knots? Without pictures its hard to say. But if they are the size of a pin head then your almost ready to put it in the FC.

Relax brotha man, all is well

I put my colonized jar contents into a bag with the bulk sub and just mixed it all together. Then i just tipped it out into the tubs. Put the tubs back into black bags and back where they were to colonize.

Iv Heard about Cobweb, i just wondered if there was anything i should be watching for so i knew everyting is ok. But its all white, so i guessing its alright!

Ill get some photos.

Peace

Pics would be good. Those "balls" could be mycelium, if you leave some grain kernels on the surface of the substrate, the tendency is to form those "balls".

yep cobweb is hard to confuse imo... It's more gray then white. And it seems more "whispy" if that makes sense.

Mycelium looks stronger and more solid then cobweb. You'll know when you have cobweb because it grows so fucking fast. And if you ever do get it, Make sure you wipe EVERYTHING down that has been near the container that got it. Because that shit will infect future grows. I speak from experience on that! LoL

Nah just leave it as it is, there's no harm. Leave them be, forget about it for the next couple of days.

Cubensis does not require casing layer, they say it only adds an useless aditional step for contaminants take advantage of.

I had the same "casing dilema" too, so i made a good research and decided not to use one.

But in the end, is always up to you. Everyone got a different point of view. Stick to the basics and you'll be fine! :wink:

no no no no, everyone got it completely wrong.  Fluffly , grayish , balls of mycelium are FINE ... I believe RR said that this means that you put the grow in casing mode too early.  I got them in all of my grows so far.


BUT, if that mycelium is not fluffly, grayish, but rather solid looking, and completely white then you might have a contaminant on your hand..
