stalled straw colonization
    #3379225 - 11/18/04 01:42 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

so a straw casing is made in a large pan and inoculated with a couple jars of spawn.. i would expect it to be finished colonizing within a week, but lo & behold, it's been a week and it has not finished, although a small amount is left over.

it seems a wee bit on the dry side, but i have no idea how to go about hydrating it without disturbing the rate of colonization.

would the lack of moisture be the reason why it's not finished?

It could very well be. How colonized is it? 50%? more? Less?

much more than 50% but it has slowed down since the past few days.

Are there any ways of rehydrating the straw while it's colonizing, or at least helping it along with the whole process?
