I received a Agrocybe Aegerita kit form sporeworks a little over a month ago. I inoculate it with about 2cc's of spore solution. I was incubating it on the main floor of my home for a while, before the temperatures started to rise significantly after winter. After it being there for about 3 weeks, there was still no sign of colonization whatsoever. So, I moved it into my basement where it is quite cool. Still, about a week later there is no growth at all. I am keeping the bag in a container that should be light tight.
The container is a rubbermaid type container but not solid, so light could get in. I covered the sides with aluminum foil and put a towel within it. So now, it should be light tight. I drape a towel over top of it and set the lid on top of the towel for as much air exhange as possible without letting in light. Any idea as to why it is not doing anything or some suggestions as to what I could do?
