Cake Question with Pictures
    #1900032 - 09/09/03 10:22 PM (14 years, 18 days ago)

I have 10 Brown Rice Flower cakes that grew EXTREMELY fast, they colonized like 70-95% in less than 2 weeks! NOW all but one have stopped growing in certain places! Seriously absolutely NO growth. It's been almost a week and they just won't continue to grow. I took tape off, flipped so they could get some clean oxygen and NOTHING. Strain is Huatla, self made syringe with TONS of spores, very sterile, NO contamination, just spots of no growth and "cloudy" mycelium. Should I keep waiting and try cakes, or just fuck it and break them up and do casing? I'd like to do cakes this time because my casing didn't do too well and I think I'd have better success with doing cakes right now. What do you guys think I should do?

Just wait a little bit more if you want to birth them as cakes IMO.... It sometimes take too long for myc. to fully colonize a cake... But it will.... some day... :grin: If you prefer casing them, they're ready for that.... 


The word truth...... doesn't make any sense..... As if the word sense...... which isn't the truth.........

yeah or you could just dump each on into a plastic bag, break them up let them colonise that way and then case them. make sure its a new ziploc, mist the inside of it with a slight h202 solution
