Inoculate in the middle?
    #1057036 - 11/16/02 12:01 AM (18 years, 8 months ago)

I know this question have been put lots of time... Is it desireble to make another hole for inoculation in the center/middle of the jar? :smile: Would this fast colonization?

dont poke another hole, when you inoculate just angle the needle towards the middle of the cake on two opposite sides and squirt, works just as good.

my last batch i inoc'd in the middle and will continue to do so. if contams are present you will not be able to see them, obviously. interestingly, after several experiments I found that colonization speed is more influenced by the amount of inoculum used as opposed to the number of inoc sites. I have one jar that looks about 95% on day 6 where I used 17 cc's of mycelial solution in 4 inoc points for a 1/2 pint jar(I prepare the substrate with less water). i like the center hole inoc point because it can colonize from the inside out while colonizing from the outside in.
