grass growing in my substrate!
    #1469633 - 04/18/03 09:46 AM (14 years, 8 days ago)

I went to look at my bins yesterday and I saw that I have some grass growing in my 18 gallon container filled with 6 inches of 98% colonized starw. It is in a room that is at 80 degrees and 50% humidity.

I would not think the grass would afftect things, but should I pull it out?

AFOAF had this problem twice. She noticed a difference with only having 1 maybe 2 good flushes. But besides that the grass caused no problems.

nutrients.

Grass, like mushrooms, needs food :smile:  In the wild there's an abundance of it, in your cased tray there's only so much to go around.

Plants don't use the food that fungi do. Plants use reduced inorganic molecules for photosynthesis (photolithotrophic autotrophy). Fungi use organic molecules for their energy and carbon source (Chemoorganotrophic heterotrophy).

They will definately not be competing for food.
