two questions
    #2081198 - 11/07/03 03:49 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

firstly, the compost is about 75% colonized, there are larger portions with no growth, would it be safe and/or smart to use a sterilized spoon to remix the solution evenly?
secondly, the mycelium is growing much like the oatmeal as substrate post, rhizomorphs are growing up off the surface like fingers, is this a sign of impending overlay? would it be wise, once the compost is fully colonized, to cold shock it to help induce fruiting? i sincerely thank you for any replies.

assuming it's been less than about twelve days, i'd leave well alone. much longer than that, and i'd think further on it.... it's said that a spawning should be completed within about 14 days (with straw-based, at least) or else contams are likely to awaken from their slumber, hungry, and see unclaimed food lying around.


if it's uncased, it can't overlay - you want it solid white.

if it's bulk-spawned cubensis, no cold shock is needed. let it incubate until 100%white, then (optionally add a casing layer and let this reincubate until myc just visible and then)  change to fruiting conditions. hope i helped. sk



:kiss:
