Myco bag to compost question
    #1398058 - 03/21/03 11:16 AM (15 years, 5 days ago)

I got a myco bag with rye berries and I innoculated it a month and half ago. Within a week it started to grow mycelium, but the berries dried out and the mycelium stoped growing and kind of shriveled up. So i put a little bit of water in a plastic tub and set the bag in it, and put the tub on a heating pad. Water formed on the sides of the bag, and ran down and rehydrated the berries on the side. The mycelium started growing again and was really thriving. The problem is only the berries on the side of the bag got the moisture. There for the mycelium only grew on the side of the bag. It was obvious that it was not gonna spread anywhere else in the bag, so i was wondering if i can open the bag up and take out the mycelium that had grown, and plant that in the compost, then throw away all the other rye berries that were all dried up. I guess what im asking is how much mycelium do i need to plant it in the compost and have it work. A friend of mine said you only really need one berry covered in mycelium for it to case the compost. Only about 20% of the berries were colonated. I hope hes right because if not i fucked up my little project.

i,d think you,d need more than one berry,i,ve use,d 1/2 pint jar in a small casing layer say 1 foot x1 foot but you don,t get that much fruit.
