Air needed?
    #1614353 - 06/06/03 12:07 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

in a birdseed casing? well i have this casing that is in incubation and has been for a week and day now and theres nothing growing. i had an air tight lid on the container so then today i didn't seal it, just placed the lid lightly on the casing. could this be why nothing happened?

this is my first time ever working with birdseed

Grains do need air exchange, but you should see growth progress really slow without fresh air. IMO, that seems like a long time to see no growth. Watch for a bad smell.

Then the only thing left to do is keep an eye on em. You could leave the lid loose, or try and poke some holes to help. Perhaps your casing layer was too moist, causing slow progression. Time will tell.
