too wet
    #1851888 - 08/26/03 05:35 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

hi,

i recently purchased a grow kit; the mycel came with it, the cakes in aluminium boxes; now, when i received it the mycel had not yet overgrown the whole of the substrate in the aluminium boxes (which are open on the top and placed inside the box to let the mycel grow);

the instructions required me to fill the box with water to guarantee the right humidity; the aluminium boxes with the growing mycel are floating in the water; now, while three boxes are increasingly overgrown with mycel at the top of the alu-box (B+), three others do not show any progress;

the substrate in one of the boxes that show no progress is thoroughly and completely WET; water must have come into the box somehow (as it was standing on the side of the box i suspect that condensated water that ran down on the side of the box slowly leaked into the alu-box with the substrate/mycel)

- is there any way to save the mycel in the alu-container where the substrate (and the little mycel on the bottom of the substrate) is completely wet?

- is there any way to save the mycel in the alu-containers which are partly wet and show no mycel growth since a couple of days?

- do you think (as i do) that the technique of placing mycel-aluminium boxes in water to create the right humidity in the container is a bit strange?

i would appreciate any help,
laovienax

i appreciate your replies, but unfortunately you did not help me at all;

i am aware that most grow kits are a rip-off; i have successfully grown shrooms before without a kit; but this time i just lack the time to go through the whole cycle of making jars with substrate, letting the mycel grow etc. hence i bought a kit that promised results within 2 weeks;

i'd really appreciate if someone could help me out with my questions;

thanks
laovienax
