Dry bags
    #26674180 - 05/16/20 07:21 AM (15 days, 16 hours ago)

Inoculated a batch of rye berry spawn bags 18 days ago and have little in the way of colonization to show for it. About half the bags look to be dry with only a pea sized ball of mycelium.

Is it possible add moisture by injecting a few cc's of water?
Or a few cc's of liquid culture?
Or toss them out and be pissed about it?

The bags with colonization appear to be too wet. Each bag got 1.4-2.0 cc's - which should not be the cause of too much liquid. No sign of contamination so far.

The grain bags were purchased from a sponsor of this site and inoculated right after received with spore syringes from a source I've had previous success with.

No filter patch for gas exchange? The moisture in the bag is normal but it looks excessive, idk why you would want to inject more water! To me it looks like yeast in the one bag but I cant be sure. Give them some more time, be patient and hopefully it'll work itself out! IMOE Mycelium from MS is slow AF.

you might be able to break it up to spread the colonies around but id wait for a sound or third opinion. I know you can at like 90% colonization. can you with a stalled bag? grow kits suck I guess and have little success every single post I've seen on this site including myself about grow bags are nothing but trouble. I got screwed by Midwest, lesson learned. You want a job done right do it yourself.

I was going to try out Mid West, but just bought a pressure cooker instead.
Got fucked hard by Shroom Supply on my last set of bags. Out of 17 rye berry spawn bags: 5 too wet; 7 too dry; 5 properly hydrated. And now the too wet bags are being over run by green mold. Super bummer.
Here's what we got:

Just to update:
Shroom Supply delivered replacement bags for the ones that were too wet/dry. Received bags in two days without any push back.
