its in the bag..

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..?

cheers

Jim

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??

any help guys???

Cheers
Jim

wait for full colonisation. also, make x-shaped cuts (stamets uses arrowheads mounted in a grid on a board) as opposed to long slices. Each puncture will become a fruiting site.
