different strain characteristics

i've searched for stalled jars and found what i needed but I'd also like to know if anyone knows much about the colonizing characteristics of B+, Lipa Yai, Eq, and Koh Samui's? 6 of my B+ and 2 LY colonized completely in only 2 weeks or so and a few seemed to have stalled. any info from personal experience is great, thanks

Ly's and b+ are great colonizers, Ly's on poo especially run through it like hell, all your strain choices are top notch, great contam resistance and colonization speed, all pretty much the same ime.

Hi there.

I know this is an old post, so I am only posting this for future searches on this topic.

I have done some testing with B+ 1pt jars. All the jars I tested, I used the same ingredients: Vermiculite, freshly ground brown rice and water(Cleansui Filtered Water). I varied the water and flour amounts and colonizing temperatures to find out which one stalls the growth the most.


The ingredients mattered the least and the temperatures mattered the most. I found that B+ will fully colonize in 14 days at a constant temperature of 29deg C. If the temperature drops more than 8 deg C in  12 hours, the cake stalls in week 2 of fruiting(give or take a few days). 

I have designed a thermostat controlled colonizing box that is made from polystyrene (20mm thick all the way round with a 20 mm thick lid). The base has a 240 Volt 22Watt wire element 6 meters long that has been inlayed on the underside(heat rises). The box is covered with thick cardboard to help maintain the internal temperature. Once the thermostat is set to 29 deg C (monitored with a thermometer), the lowest temperature is 28 deg C and the highest is 29.8 deg C. Having the environment this controlled has eliminated any stalling. 

NOTE: All test were done in a fully automated terrarium.

Best of luck!
