what should i do with this?
    #1291421 - 02/08/03 05:19 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

i had some extra Verm/BRF so i put i crumbled it into a 5X9 tupperware, and innoculated it with Cambodian. here's what it looks like now:





i've been shaking it once a day, which has made the mycelium grow super-fast. should i just leave it like this and see what happens? should i put a layer of verm on top of it? will mush grow off of it if i leave it like this? any suggestions are welcome!

Hmmmmmmmmm. Maybe let it colonize completely then cover it with some casing mixture. 50/50, etc. That thing may take awhile to colonize completely.

some of the chunks are completely colonized, growing "hair". i've got a glove box...should i remove the colonized chunks and try to case them?

you mean remove the colonized chunks and place all of them in a separate container and case? not necessarily a bad idea. you may get a better yield by waiting or you may lose it all to contam (not too likely). persoanlly, I'd wait it out unless I was desperate to get fruits NOW.

well, my reasoning for that is the places that have mycelium have had it for a week or so, and its getting whiter and more hairy. all of the other chunks are showing no sign of growth. i was thinking that if i removed the colonized chunks i would A. get fruits faster (who doesnt want this?! lol) and B. minimize the risk of contams from the uncolonized chunks of vermBRF. because the uncolonized isnt looking too promising.
