How long will my colonized High Mountain Compost last?
    #2598817 - 04/24/04 09:18 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

How yall doin? Well there's these 2 5-pound trays of High Mountain Compost, both colonized with Aussie cube mycelia. They've been ready to be fruited for a good 2 weeks or so, but some crackhead roommates let the electricity bill go unpaid and there is no power for the air pumps or light for the fruting chamber. A new location will be available in around 2 weeks. There is no casing layer on the compost yet but there is some mycelium starting to grow on the top of it. A picture would be provided but the digicam battery is without a charger for the moment. There appear to be no signs of contamination. Should I stick a Coco/verm casing layer on top for the time being or just wait until I'm ready to fruit? The trays have lids on the top and are in a rubbermaid so they are not being left exposed to contams. Help is of course appreciated.

id have to say that if you left it colonized it should be good.. Im under the impression that you can go uncased with compost. so that makes me think that if you leave it in the dark it should stay for that two weeks fine..


im by no means no expert and might be totaly wrong... im just now going to give compost a shot so.

That's not pretty cool.

They should be fine. Your only worry is pre-pinning before you have your setup ready. Just make sure they have minimal air exchange once colonized, and you do not open the container and allow light in (even for a split second). If possible, try to keep them cool once colonized also.

Once you are ready, apply your casing layer (if you intend to use one).
