Hi Folks those of you with a good memory would remember a few weeks ago I inoculated some grain (wheat) with Phoenix oyster mycelium - last night I transferred the grain onto some sugar cane bagasse which went through the hydrated lime preparation (Stamets - GGMM) I packed the sugarcane and grain into plastic oven bags. I'm just wondering ... if I should poke holes in the bag now or wait until the sugar cane has colonized the bag??
I'm pretty sure I should pierce the bags but thought I better check..?
yeah they are great -- but would they be better if I sliced a few good cuts into the bag to allow the substrate to breath... My dilemma is the mycelium prefers higher CO2 levels while its spreading through the substrate - but then I read nasty contams also like the high CO2 levels - so far I have left the bags sealed - I will cut some air holes when the bag is fully colonized to hopefully reduce CO2 levels and increase fresh air to bring on fruiting... right??
