Fisrt straw spawn stalled?
« on: November 02, 2008, 05:02:28 PM »

This photo is almost a month after spawning WBS onto straw.  I have noticed no new growth for almost a week.  any ideas as to why , and what i should do.

The bulging white spot don't like to good,as if it wants to start overlay.
Straw is not a casing material.
You could still get fruit off it but it looks more like a bulk grow going on than a fruiting thing.

You may be able to get away with putting a straight Verm layer on it.
1 month you should be seeing fruit.
Guess you know not to use straw as a casing material next time huh? :)

should i add the verm now?  it dosent seem to be 100% colonized on the straw.  my goal was semi bulk project.  I was just experimenting.  I followed an artical i read on the shroomery

http://www.shroomery.org/8392/Straw-as-a-Substrate   

i think the screw up in it is that the straw is not kept close enough togeather, providing to large of gaps between pieces.  next time i think i will try a straw log or somthing along those lines.  to keep the straw substrate in close confinement with itself.

You could have made straw logs, all I know you could do is try and fruit as is.
