Too much light before the mycelium is ready?
    #817071 - 08/14/02 09:35 AM (18 years, 8 months ago)

I have a couple mycobags and about 5 days after I innoculated them I would check them every other day and in the process exposing them to light. Right now the mycelium has basically halted halfway through colonizing all of the compost. Could it be that I exposed the mycelium to too much light and now it thinks it is time to start pinning?

Well, if it's only every other day I don't think the light is going to be your problem. Mycelium will slow down at some point during colonization as O2 levels and moisture decrease.

Be patient.
