holes?
    #797605 - 08/05/02 09:58 AM (21 years, 10 months ago)

is it a bad idea to not poke holes in the lid of bulk substrate when its colonizing? will that slow it down?

ok here it is: a friend crumbled several cakes into a mix 50/50 straw and compost. its in those family sized glad containers, filled almost completely to the top. then about 30 cakes into a big ass tub of the same mix. hes not worried about the tub b/c theres plenty of extra space for them to breath. hes just worried about the ones in the glad containers, theres not really too much air except in the tiny spaces in the straw, plus about 1/4 of a cm on the top at the most. they were done on sunday, and he wont be able to get to them again till friday or saturday to make any changes (hes out of town). this is his first attempt at bulk substrate and he thought no holes were needed. he was expecting them to be fully colonized upon his return, but now is concerned they wont colonize b/c lack of oxygen, and hes afraid that it will be giving too much time for contamination to get a foot hold. now if it is a big problem, he can make arrangements to modify things, but it will be a massive pain in the ass b/c he will have to drive back and forth and hes too busy. Will their growth stall significantly without air? (i mean to the point i would have to worry about contams, im not worried about how long it takes, i just dont want to lose them) Also, how long will straw usually last without getting colonized before contams set in?
