Incubation
    #1379880 - 03/16/03 06:10 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I'm a rather big fan of alphabits cereal, and today they formed a 2 complete paragraphs. Due to its context I decided to post it here.

Quoth the cereal: "First off my myco bags have been going rather well, but one of them, after shaking, is no longer splotches of growth but is now just a grey/brown color all over and shows little signs of growth, the other I am leaving with its scattered areas of thick mycelia. Any input if anyone here is familiar with this sort of thing would be welcome.
Also, I am planning on starting some pf tek jars but need an incubator (not warm enough and no more space where the bags are) I have a large bucket with water and a submersible aquarium heater that is a stable 80 degrees. I was thinking about adding some H2O2 to this and placing it in a large sealed tupperware along with my jars. With the search option down and all the information on incubators of this sort being rather sketchy any predictions of whether or not this would work would be very useful."

Weird, huh?.... perhaps I should switch to oatmeal....

The grey in the myco bags does not sound encouraging.

80F is a bit cooler than optimum but it will work. Insulating the incubator with a blanket or something will help.

No, I'm not english, and in accordance to what my dog told me

"It's as if the mycelia has grown around the substrate and forced it into clumps. Each clump is coated by the growth, but it's so thin the subsrate shows through."
