Mycobag isn't colonizing
    #1271499 - 02/02/03 05:07 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I've been trying to grow in a mycobag, and I have yet to see the substrate colonize. This is my first grow and I'm a bit confused as to why it doesn't seem to be doing anything.

On Jan 10th, I inoculated for the first time. I followed the instructions given; two ccs inserted at two points in the bag. When I innoculated the bag, I shot the solution toward the center. I sterilized the needle before inserting it with alchohol, as per instructions, and also wiped down the innoculation spot with alchohol before and after.

After ten days, on the 20th, I figured if it should've colonized by then and followed instructions I got off of the board (from that guy who grew like 300g of treasure coast) for how to reinnoculate. I innoculated 4ccs toward the outside of the bag (as in, I could see the needle when innoculating)  and all around, thinking surely this would colonize it. The needle was flame-sterilized, I sprayed lysol and wiped down with 78% alchohol.

Now, it's thirteen days later and I'm wondering why this thing still hasn't done anything. I've got 2ccs left, but I'm saving those for FungiFun's PF Tek in 1/2 pt jars. I squeezed the bag a little to aerate the rye grain.

The temperature varies from 72?F to 89?F, with an average temp of about 80-82. I'm working on an incubator for the jars. It was my impression that lower temperatures were okay, and that it would just take longer to colonize, but higher temperatures weren't good to use. Whenever it has gotten too hot in there, I've attempted to keep the temperature down.. I doubt that it has suffered heat damage.

I'm not really holding my breath for this thing to do anything, and putting most of my efforts into getting some jars ready (just need a coffee grinder for the BRF, lol). Any help is appreciated, and .. I know I should've just gone with pftek to start out with, but... Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien :wink:

89 outside = 100 inside? That's not what I heard... First of all, it wasn't 89 constantly. Every time it got that hot I would move the bag to another place, and around here it didn't get that hot often. I heard that for fungifun's incubator, you were supposed to set the temperature to 27C/80F because the mycos generate heat themselves, but it's only 2-4 degrees.

89 IS WAY TO HOT,, ITS A BAG, HEAT IS STORED INSTIDE THE BAG,, AS A MATTER OF FACT USE A FUCKING HEATER THATS A GOOD DISTANCE AWAY AND HEAT THE WHOLE ROOM,, DONT USE DIRECT HEAT UNLESS ITS THE HYDROFARM SEEDLING HEAT MAT WITH THE ADJUSTABLE THERMOSTATE AND PROB,, THATS THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW YOUR CONSTANT TEMP, ITS NOT GOOD FOR TEMPS TO FLUXUATE EITHER, KEEP THEM CONSTANT, TRUST ME ON THIS DIRECT HEAT CAN RUIN ALOT OF PROJECTS ...

1. The temp was too high. Room temp is fine. I don't know why people think higher temps help speed up growth.
2. Bags suck use jars. I always read about people having stalled growth in bags.
3. Was it premade (i.e. you bought it preped off a website)...if so that was most likely your fatal error. Premade anything blows.
