Myco bag taking forever!?!?
    #684778 - 06/17/02 06:54 PM (21 years, 8 months ago)

i have 4 myco bags(sporeworks) with peurto rican that have been colonizing for the last 40 days at 80F degrees. Each bag is only about 1/3 colonized and has changed very slowly every week... what can I do to speed things up?? and/or any tips on what to do would be greatly appreciated... is anyone else having this problem with myco bags??

Temperature is usually a big issue but 80 degress is pretty ideal. Air Exchange can positivitly affect growth but dont myco-bags have filter patches allready on them? Avaiable moisture and nutrients is a factor but the bags should allready have that. Sorry, cant think of much!

did you already knead it and mix the bag up? isn't that the technique? i haven't done it myself, but what i've read sounds like people bust it up once the mycelium starts growing so as to get it started in all areas of the bag.

don't take my word 'cause i haven't done it, myself. maybe someone else will speak up...

take care! good luck...

I would have to agree with UHID on mixing up the bag. I have had sucess with the mycobags in the past, they did move slowly at first, but once i mixed em up, they took off!

isn't it to late to mix it up?? the bags are like 25-45% colonized.... wont it hurt the mycelium network if I mix it now or would it help??? by the way I did mix up one bag about 20 days ago and that one looks them same as the others that i didnt mix... I did mix them all at the beggining after innoculation and then after about a week from innoc. ... should i mix them all now except the one i mixed 20 days ago?

well, think of it this way: you break up cakes to make casings without hurting the mycelium. in fact, i've heard that it grows back together stronger with more connections (hearsay).

when you mixed it "about a week from innoc," did you see any growth at that time (that is, did you actually break up some patches of mycelium and spread it throughout the bag)?

take care...

Are the bags drying out? If they are in too dry of an environment or on direct heat like a heating pad, they will lose moisture and will slow growth and reduce fruiting. You can usually tell by the bags feeling lighter and noticeable shrinking and bluing of the mycelium.

You can mix at any stage with no harm as long as there isn't mushrooms present. Go ahead and mix them up and check on the humidity. 40 days at 80F is too long.

Well he hasn't fruited yet and mycobags are pretty contained, I don't think they would be drying out.
