not ready yet!!!
    #1791791 - 08/08/03 12:45 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Hi all, things are looking great!!!!! The only problem is what do I do with the jars that are ready but my chamber isn't?? When I first received my mycelium (mail order)I put part of it directly into a grow chamber and the rest of it I used to start some new jars. My little guys are just now ready to pick for the first time and I want to try to get another flush or two. How long can I keep the jars that are colonized? Or should I be setting up another grow chamber right away? Thanks for your help, Foxy

Pinning Invitro is an option! That might give you a little time. Some say you can put them in the fridge and slow the growth but I don't know much about it.

If you have a tall plastic container, some perlite and saran wrap you should be all set. You'll just have to mist (the sides of the plastic) and fan each day.

The fridge will work, too, and so will pinning invitro.

I don't know if you'd even need to mist if you're using perlite, my friend never had to and had holes in the top of his terrarium and maintained 99%, just do whatever works I guess, improvise.

You don't need to but it can lose water over time. If you use a shitload pf perlite, though, you don't need to worry about it, at all.

you can keep the jars that are colonized by putting them on a clean shelf in the fridge this will slow growth down almost to a stand still.This should by you up to a few weeks time

I used the perlite method and still had to mist every other day. This is my first grow and I made some mistakes w/ me B+ like too much patch casing. I just got pins on the sides (Damn it!) and only 1 is poking through. I had to lightly scratch off the excess casing probably shocking the top of my mycelium and messing up my first flush (all I want is a viable spore print and enough to trip, though).
Just goes to show you follow the TEK and don't mess with anything until you know what you are doing. The perlite TEK does work, I'm the only problematic factor in the equation!
