Cakes Looking colonized but no pins
    #1157834 - 12/20/02 12:28 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Well, i'm growing weary of cobweb and impatient w/ these pins. I'm using the method i think is called invitro pinning where u wait till you see pins in the jars, is there anything i can do to speed this up? At the moment they are on a hot rock for a reptile but its not that hot for several years of use. Anyways, i think its mycellum because it started at the 4 innoc points all the way down where the suspension was injected. I hear cold shocking will encourage pinning, but when should i resort to this? I am using pf tek for the simple mind. One more question, one of my 4 jars is compacted and i dont know how, but its really hindering the mycellum and in some areas there is a brownish yellow looking stuff, contam and i should throw away? Or is it something that happens to cakes that are too compacted? Thanks for taking the time to read my post even tho its probably all stupid questions, someday i'll learn.

When the mycelium is stressed, or too hot, it can secrete what we call "mycelium piss" its a yellowish liquid. Could be caused by your compact substrate. Try just putting the jars in the fridge overnight, or exposing to more light.

We are talking about south americans here and as far as how colonized they are: The jars are completely white except for some faint areas where i can see a bit of the verm still, which is very small. Smaller than that of a dime, and the top brim right below the lid isnt fully colonized but i'm not sure where it turns into just dry verm layer to block airborn nasties. The hot rock is slightly warm, covered with a towel that was folded over twice. So its 2 layers that it has to go thru and they are barely warm by the touch when my hands arent cold.

Do you have thermometer, because whenever I feel my jars they feel pretty warm and the heatpad fluctuates between 77-81.
