Fastest straw colonization times?
    #2281739 - 01/28/04 08:49 PM (14 years, 25 days ago)

I just recently (Jan 24) spawned 5 inches (chopped, pasteurized, compressed) worth of straw in a 125L rubbermaid container with 2L of popcorn mycelium. I covered it (and tucked it in) with plastic sheeting with holes poked in it and compressed it with some books which I have moved every couple of days.

It is now Jan 28, about the same time of day I initiated the spawn run, and I've seen rampant colonization of the straw, especially where it was compressed (The books cover roughly 75% of the surface area). In those areas, you can just barely see any straw on the top.

I was under the impression that this would take a little longer to occur, since most times i have seen indicate it takes about 8 days (or so) for colonization of this sort. Am I just mistaken? Or is this a rather quick colonization rate so far?

I'm not in any particular rush, so I'll likely leave it until the 12 days anyway, but I was just curious as to how fast other people had seen colonization occur in similar conditions.
