Jars Ready To Birth?
    #1390162 - 03/19/03 06:10 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Here's a question some hobo wnated me to ask... I'll copy and paste what he said....

-----------

So I've got 4 jars colonizing with Mycelium... One of them has been fully covered for about 3-4 days now, while the other 3 are catching up...

Now how "thick" should the mycelium be before I birth it into the terranium? I can still sorta see through it a little bit, but I have a feeling that does not matter? I just don't want to leave it open to contamination...

And another question I had was this... Once my first four jars started colonizing, I started a second batch of four (this is my first time so I wanted my first shot to work before I wasted the entire syringe). Now for the second batch I wanted to try casing it. Now because I've noticed jars colonize at different speeds, how do you get it so your cakes are ready to be transferred onto a casing all at the same time?

Also, all the casing teks are pretty easy to understand, but here's one thing I find they never answer: How many cakes are needed for a casing? They give you all the measurements for the casing recipe, but just say "Break the cakes onto the casing"... but they don't say how many... does it matter? is it a personal choice?

As to your birthing question I'm not sure, so I won't give you a "maybe" answer...

however...

The tek for casings that I read said make a layer of broken up cakes about 1.5" to 2" deep so break up as many as you want until you've filled that 1.5"-2" layer with crumbled cake.

I've read about people doing 1 cake casings, 2, 3, 4, etc....it also depends on the size of your casing container I believe. Good luck, I hope I helped.

Do either two or four per casing. It depends on what size containers you can find. If you know math, fuck it i'll do it for you, one cake per every 7" of casing/container surface area should give you a substrate depth of about 2 inches. So four cakes would be good for a 7" by 4" conatiner, or a round container 6" across.

As for them not colonizing at the same time, don't worry. Unless they aren't innoculated evenly, they should all finish within 10 days of each other. As long as they aren't in a really dry place it won't hurt to let them sit for a week while the other ones catch up.

Thanks for the info....

As for the jars that are ready now, which will be done a la PF style, do I have to wait until primordia show up before birthing the cake, or is a cake that is completely covered do?
