Wet Rice Jars?
    #1784836 - 08/06/03 01:50 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I have rice cake in the jar and the mycelium is growing fine. But it kind of slowed down and stoped growing. I notice that inside the jar and the rice was kind of moist(overly moist). Would this effect it or would it be better for the mycelium?
And if the would effect it, which is the best way to let the moisture out of the jar with out comtaminating it?

If the mycelia has stopped growing chances are they have soured. kinda looks like too much water in the jars. If you want to try and save them, you could loosen the jars lids more. But it sounds like they have soured.

Is condensation inside the incubating jars harmful?
------------------------------------------------------------------------

To some extent water vapor condensing to small drops inside the jar is normal. As long as the condensation isn't so strong that the water begins to accumulate at the bottom of the jar, there's nothing to worry.
If you experience excessive condensation, the incubation temperature might be to high, also try to use a tad less water with the recipe.

How come my jars started growing mycelia, but for some reason have stopped?
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mycelia can stop or slow to a halt for various reasons. Some can include: drying of the substrate, an overly wet substrate, internal temperatures in and out of the recommended ranges, substrate that may have been "cooked" by direct heat during the sterilization process, etc. Generally, the bottoms of jars colonize much more slowly than the tops. So if you have slowed growth around the bottom/bottom sides of the jar, an easy method to help kick -start the mycelia is to "flip" jars. Simply place them on their lids, resting on the dry vermiculite layer. This should act as a vacuum, forcing CO2out and fresh O2in the jar (as CO2can build up in jars). The cake will slide down, forcing air out and, by the laws of physics, drawing it back in as well. (Can't have a negative space of air, the jar itself is not sealed). Other factors that are not so easily "cured" are the ones listed prior. Generally, you cannot add materials to colonizing substrate without risking contamination by opening the jar/breaching the vermiculite layer. Avoid these possibilities by mixing your substrate as evenly as possible (to avoid over -/under - water content), keeping the jars incubating in a not too dry environment, keeping the jars stored in a warm area (not hot, not cold), and also making sure water does NOT splash on your jars if you elect to boil to sterilize. Water splashing into the jars can make them too wet for the mycelia to colonize.


you could drop the humidity in the incubator to draw some water out...
