Problem with water in incubating jars
    #1063129 - 11/18/02 05:09 PM (16 years, 24 days ago)

I'm on my 3rd attempt of growing shrooms. The first 2 were a success, just not much yield. I'm having a re-occuring problem with water in my jars.

My incubator is the 2 rubbermaid tub method using water and a sumersable fish tank heater covered with a few towels. When my jars (1/2 pint widemouth) are about %75 colonized, I flip them lid side down. After a few days the jars have a ton of large water droplets formed on the inside. They're not ready to be flipped as the cake isn't fully colonized, yet I don't want more water to accumilate. What can I do here?

try loosening the jar tops that should release some moisture.

Or just use less water next time.

Yeah use less water, but for this batch loosen the lids.

Do not worry to much , this is common towards the end of colonization . In time the droplets may even get a faint yellow coloring , this is waste products of the myc . Only worry if big puddles are forming that do damage to myc .

Isn't the water from condensation though? I though my humidity was too high in the incubator....
