Good or bad?
    #1460219 - 04/15/03 02:12 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I have one jar in particular that's acting really fishy, it has over 80% coverage of the jar with the mycelium, but i have two questions regarding this jar, 1: is it normal to see pins starting when the jar is only at 80%? and 2: Is it good or bad that two of the inoculation holes have mycelium growing out of them? I couldn't find any information to the second problem on the FAQ, so sorry if the first was covered (it probably was). Thank you for any help you may provide.

You could have pins.. but i'd be suprised.... what are the jars made of? wbs, brf, etc...

Mycelium out of the innoc holes???? never heard that before. 1/2 pint.. or bigger jars??? how are they being incubated.. or are they?

more info pls.

Lets assume that he is using BRF cakes.

1. Are you exposing your jars to light?
How old are the jars?

2. I have had GT cakes where the mycelium came out all 4 inoculation holes.
Those were some of my best cakes I ever had.
Not a problem...IME

they're half pint jars with brf substrate, i have them in a fruiting chamber i was going to use, but decided it was too small (it has a little bit of space for light, but the light in the room is usually off (or the bin is covered to avoid light getting in there.) If i can find a digital camera i'll have some pics up.

PS The jars are about 4 weeks old (i inoculated them about 4 weeks ago). The spores i used were kind of old (about a year) and I don't know if that would have anything to do with it.

Sounds like they dried out or the substrate has an area that has been contaminated. I'd birth, remove uncolonized substrate, and soak in a peroxide/distilled water solution.

hows the myc growth? if it looks really rhizomorphic (which it does it they're coming throught he innoc holes) and free of contams then they should be good, actually, they should be great.

I had mycelium coming out of my inoculation holes, and I have cased after that. Everything seems fine to me.

Peace and Elbow Love!
