What's wrong? The mid section of the bin isn't colonizing

Recommended Posts

Second attempt growing,  I didn't have this problem the first time and I'm using the same substrate as I did before. It's been running for 2 and a half weeks now and the center has not colonized anymore,  the mycelium has stopped dead in its tracks around the center. I had tin foil on top of the bin for the duration that they've been in there and I didn't look at it once, it doesn't appear to have any mold or contamination. Any advise?

I just started and have learned alot. Mine stalled a bit. Temperature fluxs between say 72 to 80 farenheit will stall it out, how many times you exposed it to air, light. Also if your moisture content was off that might stall it. Contaminated areas would do that too. If it doesnt show signs of picking back up in a day or two. Put it in fruiting conditions and keep them optimal. You'll get shrooms and if your careful and sterile you might get a few flushes before it contams. Unfully colonized subs run a higher risk of contamination.  Mycelium need co2 to colonize and FAE to fruit.

      I've got mine fruiting next to my GTs hopefully they come just as beautiful!! How long did it take you to see pins on the albino? I've had mine in fruiting conditions for 3 days got some hyphal knots going but no pins yet! Good job on yours! You are now the object of my envy haha

      Hmmm... that makes sense. Wishful thinking I guess lol

      No. By breeding homozygous penis envy x homozygous penis envy would result in 100% homozygous penis envy. By breeding homozygous penis envy x  anything else would result in 100% heterozygous penis envy and 100% anything else, as long as anything else was dominant. If it was homozygous co-dominant or homozygous recessive then it would be 100% heterozygous penis envy and 100% heterozygous anything else. You would not see the mutation again until you produce more homozygous penis envy. Breeding them back to each other to strengthen it is not a real thing in genetics.

      See? I was thinking the same thing. If you could somehow breed or grow the genetics back to each other to where they both have it then take a baby from them wouldnt it no longer be recessive in the offspring? It should by logic strengthen it and cause it to become common. Then couldn't you take that gene and make it stronger until it becomes dominant?

      Any homozygous mutation is still a mutation. I’m not sure how to answer your second question.
