colonizing straw?
    #2005998 - 10/13/03 07:39 PM (13 years, 15 days ago)

I've had some straw colonizing for like a week and a half now and it's starting to turn white in some way that's hard to get a clear view of through the plastic tub that it's in. There's a lot of air in the straw - if it was compressed more would that help? I'm not sure how long this should be taking.

(I can try to get a picture later, right now I can't find the camera.)

If it is turning white it is either colonizing or growing cobweb mold. If there is no other colors on the straw it is probably colonizing. You could compress it, that might increase colonization and could also expose it to contams. I would wait a little while longer then throw a 1/2 inch casing layer over it and compress with the casing layer weight. Then do all the proper fruiting techniques.
