massive condensation on mycelium
    #4485344 - 08/02/05 02:52 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

These pictures are of 6 pints of wbs spawned to 30 pints of horse poo about 4 days ago. The strain is PE. Incubation temps are about 82 deg. I am using a 20" X 12" sterlite single tub. I am getting massive condensation on my mycelium and am concerned as to whether this will injure my mycelium or not? Also some of the condensation on the walls of the tub are running down the sides and occasionally forms a small little pool near the sides. I soaked the little pools up with a little TP. Any ideas on how to slow the condensation? I am afraid that I had too much water in my poo, although I did let it drain by hanging the pillowcase over the tub for about 4 hours wringing occassionally. I also squeeze tested the poo and got one or two drops. So far everything has gone really well with this attempt and I would hate to have it all go south because I missed something so any help would be appreciated. :smile:

phew, thanks. Should I continue to suck up the little pools that form from the condensation dripping down the walls or just let that go also? :cool:

if you're gonna worry about it and feel like you should it probably wont hurt, but the water probably wont hurt either. I would be more worried about checking on it all the time and possibly introducing contams

Can you explain your setup a little more? Depending on how your terrarium is setup the condensation would drip right on your casing. Put an angled piece of plexiglass to let the condensation drip down to a safe place.

Single tub, sterlite tub 8 holes stuffed with polyfil 4 at substrate level 4 at lid level. The cover is just laying on top. Its not cased yet, this is the spawn run so its in incubation.

It looks beautiful and that extra moisture will be absorbed once you put the casing on. The myc is colonizing nicely, so it should be able to fight off contams pretty well. I would just leave it alone until you are ready to case to avoid the possibility of introducing contams.
