Straw Colonization Question??
    #3093084 - 09/04/04 11:37 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Has anyone ever had a little section of straw that didn't colonize when doing a tray? I flipped over a 8"x10"x3" colonized tray of WBS, POO, and Straw to inspect the bottom and there was a small 1"x2" section of straw that was uncolonized. The rest of the tray was seemed to be fully colonized. I didn't want to wait to see if it would colonize or not, thinking that I'm in a race with the contams, so I removed it and cased away. Just curious if anyone had experience with this?? Thanks for any input.

Yes ive had this happen,its possable that that spot was a little drier,or perhaps the myc in that section was not as vigerous(assuming you innoculated with multispore originally),or perhaps you just werent patient enough.Regardless if you took it out,and noticed no contams or bacterial infections and patch cased it,your set.
Good luck

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

best thing to do with straw is add a verm/spawn layer on top....it holds the moisture better and you have less chance of contams since most straw contams start on top...you also can get contams from casing straw without a spawn or spawn/verm layer....I believe what happens is...the contam is using the nutes off the straw to grow in the casing material

should the verm you're using in this top layer be moist or dry?

"best thing to do with straw is add a verm/spawn layer on top"

So are you saying if you have a colonized WBS, Poo, & Straw tray - to case it with colonized WBS and verm? I've been casing with verm/coir.
