How long for spawn colonization?
    #1427329 - 04/04/03 12:29 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I spawned a 12x13 tray a week ago. The tray had four inches of straw/compost mix. I used 4 half pint ground cakes as spawn. the temp is at 85 and after 4 days the whole top was almost colonized. How much longer should I wait to case?
thank you.

The entire top layer is covered in mycelium..everything you can see is white... then case now.

But the top is white because I sprinkled some spawn on the top layer along with two layers more of spawn and substrate. I think I should give it a little more time?

If you think the top colonized faster..then maybe wait a day or two to be safe..but chances are if it's colonized at the top it's the same inside. It's your call..use your judgement

Wait til the top is fully colonized then wait a few extra days to make sure that the rest inside is fully colonized.

good luck!
