Why isn't this working?
    #1484578 - 04/23/03 12:42 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Im not a very experienced grower, but this goes against all ration within my database of shroom grow logic. i grew a whole pile of shrooms off of a tupperware of pasteurized straw innoculated with a pf cake. Then, instead of throwing out the fruited straw, I innoculated more straw with it, using a 1/10 ratio. The bags of straw have been sitting for a month with no growth. Why? They still smell okay though, almost mushroomy, so i havent had the heart the throw them out.

A month is a while for straw to catch. Maybe try fresher mycelium to innoculate it

In theory, (at least mine), it should work... I tried this exact same thing with poo, and the only time i could get it to spawn into new substrate, (more poo), was in an outdoor patch. Many many failed casings came out of my trials with spent casing mycelium. I dont know why it happens, maybe someone more experienced can detail the specifics....  Anyway, good luck in the future... And if you figure out how to revitalize the mycelium, please, let me know.  :grin:

straw is tricky...

Isn't it true that you'll get degenerated mycelium when you go from mycelium to mycelium?

after the straw was spent, the mycelium was pretty weak - to get it going again, it needed more nutrients that straight straw again could easily offer, imo. second spawnings are notoriously worse than the first one, and 1:10 is pretty mean.

if it's doing nothing after a month, i'd start over, or chuck it outside with some poo, in a hole. just my opinion, though!

good luck  :grin: shirl
