What do I do now?
    #4073101 - 04/19/05 04:35 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I cased four cases with Verm and Coir on top of spawned straw from rye with Equators.

I was told that I should cover with plastic wrap wait 2-4 days and when I see the mycelium growth on top I should put in the fruiting chamber.

It's been 4 days now and as expected no growth on top of the casing material, now do I continue to keep it covered with plastic wrap or should I puncture a few holes and allow some air exchange.

I ALWAYS have contam problems and I don't know if it is due to air exchange or not. What do the pros's suggest??

If you have it completely sealed with the plastic wrap, you need to poke some holes in it with a needle.  Then cover that loosely with alum. foil.  Also, I suspect the straw is going to be the culprit as far as your problem with contams.  Are you sterilizing or pasteurizing your straw?  What method are you using to sterilize/pasteurize?  Are you spawning to 100% straw?...

I'm cooking the straw for 2 hours at 170o (straw is finely chopped) and then I spawn the straw within a plastic bag, 2 weeks later i take that straw case it then add the coir and verm layer. The straw was looking fine at that point, the casing layer is now and it's been a few days, so far nothing.
