Any way to slow the substrate colinization?
    #1534909 - 05/09/03 04:29 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I will be leaving on a month long trip to thailand (are there lots of good shrooms there?) right when my substrate will be fully colinized... Is there any way I can let it sit for a month then when I get back I can just plant it into my compose and it will work?

thailand (are there lots of good shrooms there?)

Ahh thailand, home of many thai strains like Lipa Yai and Koh Samui, and many others.  Just ask John Allen, he's the one who found them.  :wink:

how long will they be good for in the fridge? Will they last a month+?

I don't see why it wouldn't last a month, but then again I haven't left it for that long. I would clean the fridge first and probably put some tin foil or something on them (if you are talking jars) and put them on the top shelf. They will grow a bit but very slowly.

Your biggest problem will probably be drying out, but if you are casing it I don't see why that would be a problem. I probably wouldn't use it as spawn for bulk, though.... if it's in a filter-patch bag it might be ok but the temperature shock might switch it out of vegetative mode which will slow down colonization time, making contamination more likely.

Again, I haven't ever left mycelium for that long in the fridge, but that's my opinion on the matter.

i had a friend that left some cakes he forgot about in his old house when he moved out, it was a shitty house, my girlfriends dad bought it and slowly fixed it up over the winter where they sat with no heat, when we move in in like feb. they were like at least 3 months old, were bright white and fully colonized and had no pins, moral of the story, ur shit should be fine in the fidge fo a month
