Bulk substrate question.
    #4168080 - 05/12/05 09:35 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Is it common for the substrate to colonize in the middle, on the bottom last?? I've got about 10-15% more to go on the bottom and it's going a wee bit slow... I'm a wee bit worried too. lol. It's been about 12 days and counting.

If not spawned correct. People seem to pour everything in the middle in a pile first, and spread it out...this compacts the pile. Everything needs to be fluffed up and mixed fully and evenly, including the bottom. It takes some practice to get perfect...

Oh no, dont toss it...it'll colonize just fine most likly (I cant see it, so just guessing) it just takes longer when you dont keep everything fluffed out evenly. Just wait. Pictures would help too.

It could also happen if you heat it to much..the center of poo is warmer (it generates a good amount of heat itself) so if your heating it from the bottom, it could take a bit longer. Poo only needs to be 75-80 to colonize...to hot is worse for it.

yeah, i unplugged the TiT it was in and it's colonizing a lil faster now. Thanks for all your help scat.... you're a continuous help to me!

5 shrooms for u!

I just thought it might be a bit wet or dry.. but it looks just like it did out of the bag (High Mountain Compost). I drew with a magic marker around the uncolonized spot, and today...2 days later it's got a lil progress.

What's the longest youd wait for YOUR bulk substrate to colonize???? How long is too long??

You guys rawk the mawk.

Shouldnt go longer then 2 weeks. And if all was properly done, shouldnt be longer then 5-10 days.

I have gotten into the habit of mixing a good amount of vermicilute with my bulk substrates just to soak up that water and keep them aerated.
