Innoculation troubles
    #2139581 - 11/27/03 04:33 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

This is my first attempt at growing mushrooms and I'm having some trouble. It has been 8 days since I innoculated and there are no signs of mycelium. I suspect the substrate is too moist. Is there any way to remedy excess moisture in substrate that has already been innoculated? Also, how little heat is required to kill spores? I fear I was also a little hasty during the cooling step.

Can anyone vouch for the integrity of the Mt. Elphie Sporelab? and what under what conditions may a spore syringe become unviable?

simply tryin to determine the problem here. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I think I was told if it feels warm to the touch it's too hot. I did that the first time I tried. Now I always let things cool overnight.
