couple questions:compost colinization
    #3227907 - 10/07/04 03:47 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Homie has some pasterized compost in the incubator that is colonizing way slow. It's been in there for over two weeks and not much progress. It was spawned using rye, he has some straw that is about 90% complete and its been in for a little over one week. I did some serches but could not find any answers to this question. Temp is at a constant 82 and thier is constant air exchange.

-Is their anything I can do to speed up the process?

-I was thinking about mixing it up a little bit to see if that would help what is the general consensus on doing that?

Thanks in advance to any help.

I would imagine compost would be thicker and therefore take longer then straw. Perhaps just use more spawn next time? Can you mix compost with straw like you can do with poo? Thats part of whats done to make poo colonize quicker I think.

Sorry I'm not of more help, perhaps some bulk growers will hit this.

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
Anyone looking to start bulk tubs/mono tubs/shotgun hybrids? Good tubs to use..

Thanks for advice scatmanrav.
Well homie has 2 13 quart rubbermaids gowing so maybe he will try mixing one and leaving the other alone.
