Straw tends to dry rather quickly so your best bet is to case it. I prefer verm and coir but 50/50 will work. Apply a thin casing, incubate it until you can see even mycelial growth just beneath the surface of the casing, and then fruit that bad boy!

Good luck.  :thumbup:

Yeah -- you could do either. Add a casing layer or fruit it in your fruiting chamber -- it's up to you. Casing usually implies more contamination risk, but it's better, IMO -- just watch it carefully and make sure there's no uncolonized straw left when you case it (pick all uncolonized pieces that are sticking up off of it.) Just make sure to case it right, and it should be even on the top, if you packed the straw down.

If you don't have much experience casing you may want to just throw it into the fruiting chamber, but the humidity should be kept at >95% rH and, again, you need to get rid of all uncolonized straw.

Keep a very close watch for contamination -- if you catch contamination early it's pretty easy to get rid of.

No -- you should make it airy. I meant the straw should be pressed down after you mix the mycelium into it, before you spawn it.

That's so it colonizes more easily. When I'm applying peat I crumble it between my fingers to make it airy. Adding vermiculite helps this, too.
