turning compost
    #1661857 - 06/25/03 05:46 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

i have some compost colonizing in some walmart garden compost(not the manure based compost).
it is colonizing somewhat slow and my question is, would it be a good idea to turn over the
compost and mycelium to spread things around a bit? thanks.

Turning the compost may have reverse effects. It is true that turning the compost should decrease colonization time, but it could also slow colonization time by damaging the mycelium.

If it is colonizing slow, check your temperatures, humidity and compost moisture. The slowing cause is likely there.

i see what you're saying ainasko..
this may sound stupid, but could it also possibly help? kinda like shaking grain in a jar? move the innoculation points around a bit?

It will increase the innoculation points, but again, it may also damage mycelium. You just have to decide if it's an acceptable risk. Either way, the risk is minimal. If the mycelium is injured, it should heal well. It just may take longer.
