Quick Casing Question
    #1228597 - 01/18/03 10:54 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Approx. 3 days ago I cased an 80% colonised pint jar. I looked in on it today for the first time. Now the only pictures I can find I can't see detail on this stage of growth. Thus my question when looking in it appears the myc. is breaking through the soil, the odd thing is that it has slighly pronounced thick white strands amongst the star shapped like patterns. Is this normal, the strain is Ec.
Thank you for your help, I appreciate it :smile:

why birth at 80%?
what's wrong with 100% - you're on death row, and are dying in one week?

The tek I am using states to case at 50% So I thought I would wait a bit longer.

I've read it 100's of times, and here is direct quote:
"When it has grown to a point that the mycelium has colonized at least 50% of the jar it is alright to go ahead and case the jars in the fruiting trays, which forces the mycelium to grow shrooms. Waiting for your jars to colonize 100% is recommended, but it takes longer and can be bypassed (I know how anxious you are to see the fruits of your labor). "

So quit flaming me and answer the question if you know everything.

if you think i was flaming, stick around: some people are downright offensive, unnecessarily.
i may have a joke at your expense, but it's good humoured. i was trying to suggest that i thought the concept was wrong.

your tek says 'recommended' - i bet the majority here would think that's an understatement

no problem. in future, i suggest waiting until 100% colonisation - you will greatly decrease contams.

if you have rhizo growth now, that is a good sign. you have probaly done well and are imminently about to see pins. i love being proved wrong - but the tek you suggest will almost certainly contam more than waiting to 100%.

This is a tek I had not seen before - thanks for the education.  :laugh:  Shirley is right; waiting for 100% colonization will drastically reduce your contam rate.

pitdawg.. that's an old tek.  Did you scrape off the uncolonized portions?  I cant even remember that tek completely :smile:  Where you find it? :smile: 

If you scraped of the uncolonized and you are just seeing strong rhizos then ecuador is famous for that...

If you didnt scrape off the uncolonized portion.... heh.. we wont talk about that..

About scrapping.
Is there any articles or text about scrapping?
Never found any here. It must be my fault, but do you know?

Michaz,

Not off the top of my head.. but it just makes sense as whatever is uncolonized is really what gives you chances of contams... Mycelium can hold its own pretty well when firmly ensconced.. within reason :smile:
