Straw colonization stall
    #6498738 - 01/26/07 12:27 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Some guy that my friend met is growing using the straw tek. He is using WBS spawned to straw, however its been 4 days and no growth is spotted. His straw is full of moisture so he doesn't think that is the problem. He told my friend he thinks it could either be that his colonized jars were around 3 months old or because it dips into the 60s every night. Anyone know what might be happening?

Old spawn is useless. Within a week or two of full colonization, the mycelium loses much of its original vigor. Your temperatures are fine. I've seen straw logs produce up to 20F above ambient due to thermogenesis.

One thing to remember though, you say 'straw tek'. There's dozens of 'straw teks' so it helps to know which one you're using.
