2 questions about pf tek*still need answer on aluminum foil*
    #1761672 - 07/30/03 03:02 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Ok, first thing, I PCed 6 jars today but found out I'm not getting syringe for another week, so I covered the sides tape really tightly, will this be good enough to hold off contams?

Also, my jars are about 40% covered in aluminum foil, will this affect fruiting?

I would prepare new jars when the syringe arrives. Chances to get contamination are growing with each hour after sterilization.

yes if they are sealed good and sterilized good they will keeps for awhile not to worry :smile:

you lost me,will you be fruiting them "in-Vitro tek"?

You take the cakes out the jars when you go to fruit them so the tin foil won't bother anything if that is what you are asking?

ya if ur guna try invitro id also suggest that the cakes be fresh, for invitro fruits take a while so ur best shot is to keep the sterile time ur time to colonize. just do the jars over ull be glad u didnt waste ur spores
brf is so cheap

Thanks, and what about the aluminum foil thing, once the cakes are fully colonized should I remove all the foil and put on only a tiny bit?

the foil is generally only used during pcing/boiling to keep water out of the holes, when u r done sterilizing and go to innoculate u remove the foil, just to other day u were so worried bout ur cakes being able to breath u were gonna poke a hole in the lids with a hot screwdriver, and now ur talking bout keeping them wrapped in aluminum foil?

Perhaps I was unclear, they are in glass cups, with foil on them following the pf tek method

Now my concern is, the foil is covering a large portion of the glass cup, thus preventing light to the(soon to be)mycelia. I'm going for invitro growth and I've heard that light tells the mycelia to start producing mushrooms, so my question is, shall I remove some of the foil or will leaving it on be good enough?

Have you wrapped the foil like here?



Then you should have no problems with pinning invitro.

the mycelium is a network...even if just an inch is exposed to light it will trigger the whole network to pin...but the more surface area you cover with light the faster the message to pin spreads...however a dark cycle is beneficial too so don't keep the light on 24/7...

so, if that is true, then why would people cover the borrom of their casings to make them opaque? i thought it pinned where the light come in? i don't mean to bust your chops, but i thought the light will directly effect where it will pin.

i propose that the part that comes in contact with the light will pin first but also tells the rest of mycelium network to switch to fruiting mode...
