wbs, the adventure continues...

my friends birdseed experiments in pint jars are starting off nicely with an initial burst of healthy growth. the problem is, after a few days the growth slows and then finally stops. dead.

is she perhaps suffocating the mycelia by twisting the polyfill too tight before stuffing it into the 3/8" hole? does she perhaps need a bigger hole?

she does not think water content is an issue and there are no signs of contamination.

????

you don't mean to imply that the hole should be smaller, do you? it could be too tightly wadded polyfill reducing air exchange but imho you certainly don't want the hole smaller.

At what temperature are you incubating them?

This guy I know named Jimmy incubated at 78 degrees F for 2 weeks and very little happened, then changed it at 84 degrees F and a week later they're almost all at 100%, including the Quart jar.

i've had problems with over-stuffing the poly-fil on my wbs jars, but it could be the incubation temperature as well. good luck

That's all my friend had to see. She's been incubating at 83F so she's 98% convinced that the problem is too tightly wadded polyfill.

Thanks all.
