Spawn in soaked dung?!
    #1362443 - 03/10/03 09:38 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I mixed the totally colonized corn with the pastuerized dung in three 2-litre boxes, totally 6 litres of dung.

But I forgot one important thing and that was pressing all the water out of the dung, so it was farely soaked. I did let it hang for a while outsid in a plastic bag with holes poked in the bottom, but I never managed to really PRESS the dung as the plastic bag would have broken. Will the spawn fail now or what?

Can I take it out again and pick out every colonized corn, press the shit, and then mix it again?

Thanx in advance.

uuuh! so, what the heck, what to do what to do?! my poor mushies ...

I opened the lids of the three containers, and as the temperature is about 32-35 degrees (celsius, uhm... what could it be in Fahrenheit... ehm... uh.. you know? 90+ F maybe) the excess humidity perhaps evaporates?

...perhaps even before the colonized corns even start to spread it?s myceliatentacles into it?s food?

if not, what will be the killing factor? Rotting mycelia? contams? Or will the mycelia in the corn be alive but just not capable of colonizing the soaked dung?

ps Anno, thanx for the help... =) .... and... isn?t that girl just TOO cute?! ds...

The killing factor will most likely be the temperature combined with lack of oxygen -> the bacteria will thrive!

What you should do:
Press the (inoculated) dung out gently as good as possible,so that much water comes out, then fluff it up and put it in a container to colonize.
Get down with that temperature, 25?C is more than enough when colonizing bulk substrates.

Ok, I checked the boxes and in all of them there is at least one corn visible through the dung and it is now the double size and white and hairy-like - It?s growing! Who hoo!! I jumped and danced a bit in pure happieness; my first shroomieculture is alive and growing!!!

The temperature is shifting between 20-28?C

I have loosened the lids, so that the air can be exchanged and excess moist evaporates. The containers sit on top of the waterheater in the bathroom. I?ve put a black plastic bag around them to protect them a little from the light, but I don?t know if it?s sufficient.

Is it very important to keep the containers in absolut darkness?

Any tips how to increase the odds for the colonizing?
