What ???? I have GRASS growing !!!!! ??????????????????????
    #2340927 - 02/16/04 02:05 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hey !
I never saw anything like that before !
There is GRASS growing in my friend Straw/dung !!
I was completely astonished !! I saw a lot of different contaminants in the past, but never grass !! It is crazy !!
And i began to think about it and i figured out i need a little help !

1: How is it possible that grass is growing ??
I though grass needed light to grow, and there is absolutely no light in the room ! Almost no light i just realized. There is an humidifier which produces a tiny bit of light (the screen light).. Is that enough for some grass to grow ? I don't think so, especially because the Straw/dung is under a black plastic and the humifier isn't obviously under the plastic ..

2: What does that means ???
Does it means there is too much humidity in the straw/dung which could be possible because it happens in the container he misted the more because it was a little dry at the beggining, now it's a little too wet. ??
Or does that means he needs to pasteurise more his straw so the straw spores (hehe! it's called pollen, but i prefer the word "spores"!! haha!) ??

3: But anyway, is it gonna screw up all the thing ?? Is there gonna have grass growing all over the place and stealing all the substrate to the mycelium ? What should he do, how to fix it ??
He picked all the grass he saw like you remove weed (removed the root)on your lawn but he doesn't know what else to do ??


You should know too that the Straw/dung looks like 80% dung and 20% straw and the mycelium as been growing for a week before we saw the grass.. the grass grew in a day..


Thanks !!

A few things to add

1: He just told me he forgot the light on for a whole night five days ago.. He opens the light rougly 3 minutes every day to inspect, fan and mist.. But as i said it is under a black plastic ..

Morever, the air temperature is around 69F .. I know it is a little cold for mycelium growing but he can heat it to 75F yet because he doesn't have a heater or something like that .. Is it a temperature problem ??

Thanks !

How much grass is growing?

The only reason grass seed should survive is from inadequate pasteurization. The grass seed can germinate and grow to a certain point without very much light. If left in the same conditions, I would expect the grass to die out.

I had a plant germinate in some worm castings I used once.

He found 10 "pieces" of grass in a 2' x 2' container ..
It's not much but enough to get alarmed ..

I got the same thing happen too !

I made a " For the hell of it " casing, no pasteurization at all. just mixed straw. poop and grain, water and let it go.. no light..

The seed will sprout in absense of light, but won't grow very well, no light, no photosynthesis * spellin.g. ) but ..

I'm going to let it grow.. i figure why not ! it is a test casing after all !

fyi.

Just to chime in, seeds only need water to start out - that's why you'll see people start weed between two paper towels, and also why most seeds are planted in the dirt, not sewn on top of it.
