Hmm..

I think you will lose moisture from the top layer but under it things will stay quite wet and inevitably get a bacterial infection. With consistency like that you are too wet.

I am not sure what you should do, your best bet may be to re-mix the poo with some dry vermiculite and try to get the moisture into that. It is going to be hard to recover though because you can't exactly heat, fan etc the substrate. Increasing the amount of spawn may help also. Just because any increase in overall mass of your spawning will level out the water content.

ya contams waiting to happen man.Id put some drain holes in the bottom,an put it where there is warm air but no humidity so it has a chance to dry a little.Maybe try to add some verm,but really i dont know what to tell you.
sorry man but it doesnt sound to good.If you saw that it was to wet,why did you still add your spawn?
