Questions on flipped casing and odd color...
    #1547510 - 05/14/03 08:30 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

OK. I cased 6 pint jars of rye grain with plain potting soil 1 month ago and placed in the incubator set at 83F. It took forever for the myc. to grow through the soil. I think that it didn't actually colonize the soil just grew "around" it. Basically I was then lazy and didn't have enough time to properly water and fan it when I birthed it. The end result was a bad case of overlay and a slight tan color to the myc. that was exposed. I knew that I wouldn't have enough time to properly care for it if I deep scratched and recased. So I procured a large rubbermaid container, perlite, and a small aquarium pump. Perlite was hydrated and placed in container with a glass of peroxidated water with o2 pumping into it. The cased myc was flipped onto a piece of aluminum foil after the casing layer was saturated with water. Since the myc. is so old there are many spots with the yellowish waste on the bottom(now top) of the myc. block. The container walls were sprayed down with peroxidated water and it was left to try and rehydrate the myc. block. 24 hrs later it was checked up on and I noticed 1 pin about 1cm long growing on the (now) top of the block. I'm not sure if this has grown since I flipped the casing or if happens to be an invitro growth that survived.

Now finally the questions.

1. Is the tan-ish color just a result of drying out/too much co2? (It doesn't stink at all)

2. Should I try another way to rehydrate the myc. block like dunking? Any links to decent dunk teks for cased substrates?

3. Besides my laziness does it appear, from the limited info I posted above, that things are going to be ok?

Any input, criticism or other words would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx, Dcyfr.

If this needs to be moved to another forum I apologize. If you can't tell I'm quite the Noob:)
