Possible overheating due to substrate depth?
    #4083862 - 04/22/05 04:28 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Well I had something interesting happen. I mixed 3 qts of spawn to about 15 lbs of horse poo and placed this in a container which was placed in a small cabinet. Container size about 16 by 13 inches with a substrate depth of about 6 inches. The horse poo was pasteurized the day before and allowed to cool. Average temperatures of the house were around 75 to 78.

Any ways after a few days, I checked on the tub and saw that the mycelium was only growing on the substrate near the sides of the container. There was no mycelium growth in the middle of the container. A few more days later the container is starting to smell bad so I toss it. While digging through the substrate, I found that the only mycelium growing was near the sides of the container.

I never took the temperature of the substrate but it is my guess is that the horse poo created too much heat. Does this sound reasonable or do you think something else could have done it?

bacteria produces' heat so if it seemed warm thats why but thats 100% bacteria probably smelled stale or foul also.

I'd say that it was due to the compaction of the middle of the substrate. You should let your poo drain some more, or mix vermiculite with your substrate. That always works to get rhizo's and you can get your moisture level perfect.

When composting I found that it can get hot as Fuck, especially the middle....

I have a poo/compost going on right now, it gets reallllll hot...

Maybe your situation was that you got a "bit" of heat...which would be kinda bad when you have that much stuff to colonize....Myc. can take over contams quickly if given enough time...

Perhaps you had to much shit for it to colonize :smirk: lol

Like Magash said, give it another go, maybe change something up, :thumbup:
