Water build up on straw
    #1329092 - 02/23/03 04:23 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Hey I have a small 12x12x3.5'' pan of straw that i covered with foil.

It was colonizing nicely then I opened it today and it had little pools of watre everywhere.

So I took an old syringe, lit the tip, and managed to suck up as much water as i could.

Then I poked a few holes in the tin foil and put it back into the incubator. What do you guys think?

think you did pretty much what you could.at least after the fact. if it starts up again you could use some dry heat. I'd use exactly the same process as b4 & see what happens. If this extra moisture is a result of your technique or just a "reject". Id guess we'd all need to know what you did before hand, huh? also dry sterile vermiculite/perlite can absorb for you of you're following everything to the letter and still experiencing the same problem. find out how many days before you get this excessive moisture and add one -2 days ahead of time if all other methods prove futile. what a cool word... futile
