Making Jars ahead of time.
    #1550566 - 05/15/03 11:37 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Hey, i have a question for all you guys. Does anyone ever make their jars a few weeks before they innoculate them with solution? If you think about it.... if there aren't any problems involved in this then it would be a good idea, because you would know if a jar was going to contaminate. The contaminants would probably bloom in a week or two, so if your jars were all set in a nice dark place for two weeks before inoculation, you could avoid wasting your spore syringes on a jar that would contam.

This sounds like it gives extra security. It depends on how many spores you have though. If one were to have an endless supply, say, from fresh mushrooms, then why waste the 3 weeks it takes to colonize? And sometimes, the mycelium will be strong enough to just eat through the bad parts. Good idea in theory though.

As long as you P.C. them first before sitting it's fine, as long as you don't wait so long they dry out. They certainly shouldn't dry out in one or two weeks if you are adding enough water.

Yeah thats true. What my friend was thinking, is to get into a cyclic growing pattern. If you constantly are making new jars ahead of time, constantly innoculating jars that you made a week ago or so, and then are constantly fruiting it becomes many times more efficient than if you just do one set of jars to completion.

If you dont PC like micro said, before letting them sit, you WILL get contam growth. Example "The rainbow Jar". I knocked up several jars, but accidently made one more than I had spores for. It sat for several days, not PC or steamed. 7 days later, "rainbow" jar. Fully colonized, by various molds, red, white, green, yellow, blue... Injected with bleach and let it sit for a few days before opening it. Paranoid? Probably, but I'd rather not spread any spores they had released making any further grow attempts less likely to succeed.

My point: PC or steaming is totaly needed to let them sit. I tried letting one sit, that had been steamed for an hour. It sat for 3 weeks with no contams (this was before I got spores.)
