Casing layer colonization
    #4039949 - 04/11/05 04:55 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Why does mycelia colonize a substrate that is devoid of nutrients? I assume that coir/peat provide some level of nutrition for the fungi to consume, but pure vermiculate layers are colonized as well. I wonder if a BRF Cake, minus the BRF (just wet vermiculite) would colonize from spore. Someone should try that!

it uses the nutrients within the substrate, and it grows through the verm or casing layer to find new nutriative substrate, spores will not germinate in pure verm.. maybee coir.

If you made a casing layer five feet deep over 1" of colonized substrate, would the mycelia colonize the whole casing layer? I think that they would.

basically its looking for; A, surface-light or; B, other nutrients.

and how is the mycelium to know the thickness of the verm, or that there are no further nutrients to find?... only by growing through it.

It most certainly would not. It would run out of nutrients long before that. :wink:
