equador wont colonize on the bottom!
    #3939135 - 03/19/05 10:08 AM (12 years, 7 days ago)

ok so i have 12 mycobags in the TiT and they have been there for about 4 weeks now, and what ive read it never takes that long, it seems its taking longer than usual, and the bottoms usually start to colonize at the beginning, but they havn't colonized at all on the bottom, the sides and top are rock hard, but all those little seeds and shit are at the bottom and wont colonize...what do i do? can i just drop the temp and fruit now? will they colonize while fruiting? or is it even bad to have them uncolonized on the bottom? thanks for any info...

peace,
Alex :mushroom2:

Im assuming your using WBS, did you shake or break up the substrate at any point to spread the mycellium through the substrate??

i used a small grain mycobag, and its not really that hard, i mean its hard because of the myc, but its not dryed out by any means..its just not colonizing fast...its starting to creep on the edges to where you can see it from the bottom but its not really on the bottom fully yet..is 4 weeks that long? could i do like i was asking and just drop the temps and fruit in the bag whats on it since i dont think the mushrooms would grow off the bottom  :confused: any ideas?

Flip the bag so the uncolonize parts up top. Often moisture sinks to the bottom as things colonize and the last parts/bottoms finish up slow. Flipping helps move the moisture away from it.

You could also just break up the bag a bit. Dont squish it and mash it all around but mix it up a bit. In a day or two it should recover, reform, and colonize that last bit.

If your not cutting open the bag and fruiting in the bag, you can start exposing it to light and drop the temps. If your cutting open the bag, I'd get that last bit done.
