2 ?'s on popcorn
    #1945978 - 09/23/03 10:30 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

in a slight spot of confusion here and would like some info if you folks have the time.

i shot up a bunch of 1/2 pint and pint jars full of popcorn with liquid myc. had everything go well no cantams, nice myc growth in a couple of days, etc.

my mistake was that i used tyvek filters for the lids, i put no actual lid on, just screwed the band down over the tyvek. seemed like a good idea at the time. but now i have the tops of my jars dried out.

the jar is 3/4's completely colonized and the part that is looks wonderful. its just the top 1/4 that shows no growth and is dry. my ? is can i just dump off the dry corn on top and proceed to casing.

2nd ? is how abouts do i make a casing with just straight popcorn. i plan on using just popcorn and then casing with straight verm. i tried the search but am unsure on how deep to make both the popcorn layer and the verm casing layer.

thanks so much for any help.

is the bottom wet? Have you shaken the jars to mix around the mycelium?

make the popcorn layer 2 to 4 inchs thicker being much better and keep the casing layer about 3/4 to 1 1/4 inches thick. If the popcorn wont shake up in the jars then you can just scrape off the uncolonzied popcorn and case whats left

thank you spoon!

and yes i did shake early in the colonizing period. it was just that the kernals that were consumed by myc and ended up at the top dried up. the bottom 3/4 looks great and the top looks as though it will just pour off. they are not clinging to anything.

thanks for the help.
