Stalled, casing won't colonize?!
    #3544013 - 12/26/04 01:22 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hey, the other day my buddy tried to case some colonized jar substrate (Mazatec), he broke it up and put it under a couple inchs of pasturized dung/straw after about week and a half he saw no growth emerging so decided to see how far the mycelium had made it, as he spooned cow shit out of his yet uncased casing he got to the bottom to find no growth had occured, the broken up pieces of colonized grain were still there but they had not colonized anymore... Why could this be? THe temps were right and the moisture of the substrate was also thought to be right. So he left a little cow shit barely covering the chunks of substrate, some even poking through, and waited a couple days to see if that would at least colonize. 2 days later, absolutely nothing. Any ideas?

Well moisture content can effect growth and knowing the correct moisture content can be difficult sometimes. You should be able to squeeze out a couple drops of water thats perfect IMO. Also I like using a straw rich formula which creates better aeration of the substrate. What is the temp you have it at BTW? There should still be some growth. I recommend pasturizing screened dung, then moisten it, cover it and pasteurizes it in the oven. Then mix that with pasteurized straw and inoculate it with the colonized grain not layering but mixing in throughly. Keep it covered for the most part and uncover once or twice a day for a brief period of time. GL
