need help
    #2171802 - 12/12/03 12:55 AM (13 years, 1 day ago)

i did a seedling tray of straw and when it was fully colonized i threw some moist verm on it and birthed it. my problem is i tried to even out the colonization coming thru the verm as much as i could but it didnt really colonize that much just a few real small spots now i have 2 pins for the whole casing. if my first flush suxs for this casing do u think the second flush will show better signs? and is there anything i could do about this i learned now i have to put it back in the incubater befor birthing. the reason i didnt do it is i was making pf jars and when they were colonized i would birth 5 of them into a bread pan and throw moist verm on them and it would colonize the verm fine and pin really nice. y dosent the straw do the same thing?

Your straw or vermeculite could have been too wet or dry.

There are a few things you must check.

Did you let it incubate long enough so that the straw was 100% colonized before casing?

For the next flush, I would just recommend you keep the temperature in the high 70's, hoping for some more colonization before the fruiting begins.

the temps for them now are around 72 i was hoping it would colonize a lil more i have a humidifire in there it runs 3 times a day 30 min each time i think it could be a lil to wet thats a posabilty how do u figure i fix this?
and yes when i put the verm on the straw it was 100 colonized
also do you think if i take a fully colonized straw casing and birth it with out a casing layer (Verm ontop) how can do this and avoid overlay? i know ppl have done it befor but i dont want to waste a whole casing i have a ton of humidity dso im not to worried bout that.

Not to be rude, but it's called an FAQ.

You don't need a casing if you have it in an incubator with >95% rH. People have even just left it covered and fruited it that way, but I don't reccomend it.

The straw was flat? If so, and the vermiculite was the right moisture content you might have more pins under the casing layer that you can't see -- just wait a bit. If the straw wasn't flat or the casing was uneven, though, or the wrong moisture you might have a problem....
