Is it time to take the plastic wrap off yet?
    #2668399 - 05/12/04 02:01 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Okay,well I spawned my WBS to my pasturized compost about 4-5days ago.
The top layer is very thick with mycelium except for one little section,and it is mainly cow manure,but I can see the mycelium working it way over to that spot.
I have the wrap half on half off right now so they can breathe a little,also my little generic terranium Ive got them in is in indirect sunlight.I coldshocked them(in the fridge)for about 45-60minutes yesterday,I guess what I am asking is,do I need to be doing anything different like leaving the plastic wrap totally off?Not keeping them in indirect light all the time?
Thanks for your time,
Peace,
PF~

Leave it on until you get 100% to cut down on a contamination getting the manure spot. BTW, why did you initiate fruiting before 100%? Cover, block the light and wait till you see 100% then initiate fruiting. The network is still forming.

Domey is correct. Here is a link for more reading.

But you are not using a non-nutritive layer so it needs to be 100%. Thus, still need a non-nutritive casing layer such as such as peat, vermiculite or coco coir.
