Hello, this is the first time that I am using 1LB mushroom grow bags. Should I shake the grow bag when its about 80-90% colonized? or should I let it colonize without shaking the colonized substrate , then transfer the colonized spawn to 50/50 coir-verm. Thank You in advance.

You will see all kinds of answers to this question....I, generally speaking, shake my spawn at about 50% colonized regardless of container (bag/jar/container/etc)......

 

That being said, a vigorous and healthy fungus will recover from such an event with even more vigor.....else the culture is suspect IME....

 

Hope that helps....you don't "have" to shake spawn but it doesn't hurt (uncovers bacterial and contamination issues earlier too IME) and in many cases speeds up colonization (not always though)
