Slow myc. growth in bags....question??
    #1350048 - 03/04/03 02:20 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

My neighbor has 4 spawn bags with 1.5 quarts each.... going for 9 days. Birdseed was soaked 14 hrs then PCed for 1 hr, innoculated with 12cc spore syringe per bag, mainly for moisture. been at 85-86 degrees since day 1.

All are only 10% colonized. My neighbor thinks its one of two things: CO2 or Moisture. The filter patch bags arent inflating like He's been told they are supposed to. He found a post saying he should lay them pancake style with filter on the top and pull the top up off the grain to maximize air exchange....just did this. I think the more likely problem is the moisture content....the bags have been inflating a little with moisture collecting inside the bag above the substrate, but the bottom has rather dry seed rolling around.

Gonna make 12cc sterile water syringes tonight....How much should he add?????
Any thoughts anyone??????

thanks, majik

They are finished and waiting for me to find some wheat straw. They finished colonizing in about 15 days total. moisture content was a bit low, but my screwing with the bags probably had more to do with the slow growth than anything else. Thanks for asking.
