ok, i used 50-50 with 3 jars of corn and i left 2 damp h202-h20 towels on top of the 50-50 mix to get even mycelium growth,2 days later and i have good growth and no contam. I just want to know is this a good idea or bad from all you shroomy know it alls.

the mycellium will colonize the paper towel.

but I don't see how leaving those paper
towels over the top is going to do anything
to ensure even colonization...

no.

they'll still likely pin from within the casing layer
and just break through the damp towel.

if the towel was above the casing layer, agressive
mycellium will simply try to grow across it.

Well considering i have done it ill share the results....Basicly the mycelium grew evenly on the upper layer above the peatmoss. when i removed it from the casing i did not find any mycelium "stuck" in the paper towel. i did it more for contamination purposes, It was soaked in a h202-h20 solution and then pressed till damp, and i wanted to make sure the first few days contams did not get the foothold over the shocked birthed mycelium.
