How does mycelium colonize substrate?
    #735545 - 07/10/02 05:27 AM (20 years, 1 month ago)

Hey all,

I was wondering, how does mycelium colonize on BFR/verm cakes? Does it colonize each little piece of verm or does it just colonize inbetween the pieces? When mixing the substrate you have to make sure to never press it down into the jar so the mycelium would have air and space to grow, does that mean it grows inbetween the verm?

Thanks again all,
Fd

Verm itself has no nutritional value. When you mix BRF,Verm, and water, you're coating the verm with the BRF. The mycelium uses the BRF as food. Since the Verm is totaly encompassed by BRF, you want the mycelium to use the entire surface of the verm to get it's food. The tighter it's packed, the harder it is for the mycelium to colonize the BRF/verm......I think.

Yeah something like that... Verm is used to retain moisture, the BRF is the food. You want as much surface area as possible for the mycelium to colonize(i think?). If it's packed down the mycelium will not be able to colonize the middle of the jars as good, and it may stall. But if its loose then the mycelium can get in between everything...
If im wrong someone please correct me...

Im not asking if i should pack it down or not, i know im not supposed to.

I was wonderin if mycelium only colonizes the outside of each little piece of verm or does it colonize the inside too?

Thanks
Fd
