My jars exposed to light
    #11177327 - 10/03/09 10:48 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

My jars are 5 days old of inoculation, mycelium already appeared and seems to expand,but not the whole jar yet, I know you should not expose it to light but today I forgot and turn on my fluorescent light and the jars exposed to it for 30 minutes, will I get stall growth or other bad stuff from doing so?
The fluorescent light I have doesn't have a cover, so I guess it's pretty strong light.

Total darkness isn't required for colonization.

Actually, light has absolutely no effect on colonizing mycelium, either good or bad. There is no need to keep colonizing quart jars in the dark. I have not incubated in the dark in years.

Don't worry about it.

Man, those jars are boned. Better send them to me overnight express, I'll see if I can salvage them for you.
