When should I see mycelium growth?
Furthermore, how long does it take to see mycelium growth?
It takes around 3 to 4 days to see the first hairs of mycelium forming as white spots and 3 to 5 weeks to let the fungus get to a 100% foothold in all the substrate, depending on temperature conditions.
Likewise, how long does it take B+ to colonize? From a multispore innoculation, it can colonize in as little as 19-20 days. On the average it takes about a month. If you have an incubator keeping the grow at about 80 degrees F, things will happen faster. B+ is a nice strain, lots of big fruits.
Regarding this, how long after inoculation should I see mycelium?
2 to 4 weeks
Does mycelium need light?
Light. A commonly held belief among growers is that mycelium will grow faster in total darkness. There is no data to support this premise; however, significant exposure to direct UV light from the sun can be detrimental. Light is a secondary trigger for initiating fruiting bodies.
