First grow big question
    #11301546 - 10/22/09 08:15 PM (8 years, 4 months ago)

Need ADVICE:

This is my first grow. I followed the PF tek, but made one mistake. I followed an older tek which said to use 3.5 : 1 verm to brf ratio, instead of 2 : 1 ratio.

So I mixed .9 cups verm with water to field consistensy, then added 1/4 brf, mixed it up, filled the jars, and added a 1 inch dry verm barrier. The mixture was wet looking but water was not pooling at the bottom.`

The jars were put into the incubator at 80F on Sept 22. After 3 weeks the jars looked fully colonized to me, so I've left the jars for another 10 days and it is now Oct 22 and although I've seen no pinning inside the jars they look more than completely colonized.

So I get all ready to birth the cakes. I open the first jar and it wasn't what I expected. I expected to have a dry verm barrier to shake off, but instead, I see the healthy mycilium strands growing throughout the wet "dry" verm barrier. So I quickly close the jar to avoid contaminating.

What should I do?? Should I birth the cakes and trim off the dry verm barrier that is now wet and somewhat colonized or should these jars incubate for more days??

please any advice is helpful thanks

scrape the verm off until you reach the solid part of the cake
dunk for 24 hours then roll in dry verm

put in your FC

Your signature is wrong on colonization temps!

GOOD JUDGMENT COMES FROM EXPERIENCE
EXPERIENCE COMES FROM BAD JUDGMENT

ROOM TEMP 70-75 IS BEST FOR COLONIZATION
Thank you mycochef

can you get better pics? if in fact its mycelium then just go ahead as planned but it could be some kind of mold but hopefully its just the myc so better pics would most definitely help

clean the cake, take the barrier off and submerge them in water for 24 hours or overnight. Then roll the cakes in dry verm and put on foil coaster in a fruiting chamber FC. Fan often more than 4 times a day and mist when they need it.
