Been colonizing straw for the past few weeks
    #3711252 - 02/01/05 02:16 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I have let the straw colonize in the bin for 3 weeks now, and well it never fully colonized over the top of the straw, is this okay to add substrate to? I can see the myc underneath the top layer of straw. Should i remove theun clolonzed straw frist then add the substrate?
thanks

It sounds as if the top layer may have dried out. You can try adding a casing layer now, but it is very vulnerable at this time. You can also try misting, but I do not believe that would be wise.


Sterilize a casing mix, and apply it in as clean of conditions you can provide. Water with a TINY bit of peroxide and water solution, but do not saturate. This should help the straw eventually colonize.

Yeah I'd add some sterilized casing mix and mist it down with 50/50 peroxide water. Like this:


Cased and then they came up like this:


They were patched and fruited at that point and crazy enough, came up like this:
