90% colonization and now slowing
    #1060138 - 11/17/02 04:14 PM (14 years, 21 days ago)

At 90%, inverted jars, took off tape and incubating at 85 degrees. The cakes shrunk which I know is normal but there is a few milimeters of space in the cakes I flipped in what's now the top (previously the bottom). IS this okay? Anything else I can do?

Just wait. The last little bit always takes the longest.

how long should I expect? The average I got from everyone is about 20 days for full. Started on the 4th.

Sounds like my B+ cakes, went along well and then slowed to a snail's pace. I just cased 'em, cutting out the most notably uncolonized section of the one which was even farther behind, and then crumbled 'n cased. Actually, quite a bit of the inside was only marginally colonized, so I'm not getting my hopes up too high on this, my initial casing. Looking forward to when my pink buffs colonize completely for another casing shot (if you're a newb like me, I should mention that i probably birthed the ones that are in my terrarium too soon, and they seem to be slow to fruit, although there's some increased hyphal knot activity visible. One shroom emerged from one cake, nothing else so i dunked it overnight, but that one shroom was almost ten grams wet and gave me a nice little buzz last Thursday night).

as long as there is some mycelium on the bottom, you are good to go. if you are doing it as a cake, i suggest to put some peat moss in a bowl, and set the cake on that, and put a little peat on top of the cake. the myc. likes the peat, and it will spread like crazy.

so double casing with peat moss. do you sterilize or adjust the ph of your peat moss prior to use? does this method invite more contams than using verm? Last question, do you suggest only using peat if the cake is partially colonized or all the time? I use peat in my casings and notice that the mycelium eat through it fast, I guess why not try this with a cake or two.
