If you shake the jar after consolidating for a week it will look weak. Don't worry about it. Spawn it.

The goal is to make the choir up just before you are ready to get it in the tub and mix the spawn in. As for your question you can leave it sealed in the bucket as long as you want but two things will happen. You will open the door for contamination and you will throw the moisture content off. The way I see it, is you have put all this work and waiting into the grow to get to this point, why take any chances by getting lazy and foolish now. Im just saying.

So I whipped up a brick of coir w/ 4 quarts of boiling water and 2 quarts of vermiculite according to Damion5050's tek.

I was just about prepared to spawn and after shaking the jars they didn't look as strong as I hopped even after consolidating for a week.


My question is how long will the coir last if I keep it sealed in the bucket?




you dont wait a week to consolidate when your spawning to bulk, once your spawn is ready. Use it. The consolidation period is for when you are going to fruit. Once mycelium has fully colinised it will start preparing to fruit by consuming the substrate.

When spawning to more substrate, you want yoiur mycelium to keep growing by introducing it into new substrate.


Your grian is going to look like all the mycelium disapeared when you shake to break it up, this is normal. spawn now

after i pasturized my coir i had some left over and let it sit... then about a month later i pasturized it again and used it with success... no mold, no nothing. but i didnt use the bucket tek, so ... i think it would still be good though..
strong or not; how ever your spawn looks, as long as every grain is colonized, its ready to be used.
now that i think about it , it was over a month that i used it again.
