Dung Brothers Kit not working... Please help!!!!
    #308458 - 05/03/01 01:37 PM (17 years, 7 months ago)

OK, the scoop:

Inoculated a single bag of rye grain (the other contaminated with wet spot- badly). Took about 2 weeks to fully colonize. Mixed it in with the compost from the kit, took about a week or so to colonize. Well, that was almost 2 weeks ago.

Now the kit is just sitting there doing nothing. I've lowered the temps to about 68 F and still nothing. I have given the kit fresh air a few times a day (not fanning per se) and still nothing. There is a thick layer of water "dew" on the top of the compost, and water regularly pours down the sides of the container, soaking the mycelium on the sides. I highly doubt that pinning can commence in such conditions. I don't see how this kit is supposed to work as is.

I have followed the instructions carefully, and the kit seems to be doing nothing. The holes are all uncovered, and it's very dry in the room the kit is in.

Should I case this shit so that at least there isn't a 5 inch pool of water (exaggeration) sitting on top of the compost? Should I scratch the top?

Anyone with any advice? Ryche....?

Just give it time and don't mess with it.
