z strain on tenn studd and straw, too wet?!?
    #4092051 - 04/24/05 05:34 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I recently ordered some Tennessee stud substrate and mixed it with finely chopped oat straw to a 50% ratio, the mixture was then pasteurized in a hot water bath at 170 for an hour. I used 2 quarts of z strain colonized millet to spawn the mixture in Rubbermaid-like containers the substrate is about 4.5 inches deep. I am afraid that i didn't let the substrate drain enough before spawning it, check the pictures out, there are some droplets of water visible on the bottom of the container and the mycelium appears to be growing slower at the bottom than the top, is that too wet and if so how should i take care of this? Also, i don't have any ventilation in the tubs right now, should i be fanning them at this point or leave the lid cracked open a little?

good to hear! how about fanning? Should i just let that container sit with the lid sealed or should i have some kind of ventilation?

Foil with a couple holes in it would be best. You dont want it sealed, but you dont want fresh air exchange either.
