Quick Questions
    #1315129 - 02/17/03 07:20 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

So my friend started his jars 36 of them,...and after a week of being innoculated he turned them upside down and the next night he noticed some growth. Should he keep them upside down or return them back to their normal side up? Thanks for any info.

well at this point I don't think it really matters. If he wants to flip, that's fine, if not, that's fine too. I usually turn my jars upside down only when the fungal growth reaches the bottom of the jar. Some of my friends like to flip the jars every few days or so. Also remember that handling the jars to often may cause premature pinning.

Return them to being right side up til the mycelium reaches the bottom then flip them.

are you using polyfill on 1/2 pint jars?

what size jars are you using?

and what kind of substrate are you using?

well im using pint size jars, which are full to the brim! (Tazmanians on Rye Growlog). The substrate is rye, and they are maybe 1/4 colonized.

you wouldn't flip them.

you should have left enough room in the jar to shake them.

does it really matter if not? Or should it just take longer without shaking?
