Not enough air?
    #1634620 - 06/15/03 07:43 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hi there,

I've got my birthed cakes and icubating jars in the same rubbermaid tub (for warmth). Because the birthed cakes need light, and the incubating jars need darkness, I wrapped the jars with aluminium foil to prevent the light getting in. Problem is, none of them have shown any mycelium growth. Maybe it hasn't been long enough - only 4 or 5 days - but maybe they're not getting enough air or something...? What do you guys reckon?

In the past, I've had jars before that show mycelial growth the day after inoculation...

sounds like a recipe for trouble: ideal veg. growth is 10F higher than ideal fruiting growth, and jars will introduce contams to the terrarium. they can probably breathe okay, and 5 days is too soon, but i think you should move those jars outta there before it all goes green. at any rate, be superclean. i wouldn't want to be sticking my hands into my grow chambers.

good luck! :smile:

Thanks for the advice.

Maybe I'm naturally super clean or something, I dunno, I just don't seem to have  problems with contams. To me it all seems so hyped up. Sure, I wash my hands before I touch anything etc., but I never bother with Lysol sprays and shit, and I've never got contams early in fruiting before. Even my jars only ever contam about 1 in 20 times, and I don't even use a pressure cooker, only 45 mins of steam.

Anyhoo, maybe it's because I use a strong peroxide/water mix to keep the chamber humid that keeps other contams at bay, dunno, but it's not a problem for me anyway...

Thanks anyhoo! :wink:
