Fruitng Concern
    #3228948 - 10/07/04 06:19 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

So my farmer friend is having a bit of an issue. He has two bins of straw cased with straight soil. The one bin is doing great, but the other is doing nothing. The temp is fine, air exchange is good, and they are gettin adequate light. They have been fruiting for about five days. Should he coldshock (put them on the balcony overnight at about 6 degrees), reincubate, or just be more patient?

-shouldn't have used soil to case. there are better casing mixtures to be used.

best thing i can think of is to throw it back to incubating for a day or two until you see first signs of mycelium poking through. the casing should not be allowed air exchange when you do this because high co2 levels promote mycelium growth instead of fruiting. after you get that, put it back into fruiting mode.

wait for better advice or an "ok" on my advice from someone, i got myself in a bit of trouble earlier with "soil" related advice (*wink*wink* hyphae and scatmanrav)

Soil? like dirt? I don't think that is a good casing material. Is the mycelium growing through the soil? You might try removing some of it and casing with a verm/coir mix.

The myc is growing just fine. It is actually peat, not soil, my bad. He has used it a few times before and never had a problem, so he knows that isn't the cause of the problem. He usually cases straight up, and then before the second flush adds calcium carbonate to neutralize pH. The casing surface has almost colonized completely, but there doesn't appear to be any hyphal knotting at all. Thanks for the hand guys, much appreciated.

That could very well be the problem, thanks. I'm just using some indirect sunlight, I'll try giving them a little more light.
