Pf tek Colonizacion Question
    #1968828 - 10/01/03 08:48 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Uhm , right now apart from the casings and some colonizing rye jars i have 3 pf BRF jars, now mi problem is that they are nearly colonised completely, exept for the lower part wich would be abouta cm long , im thinking that its cause they get no light in that area , could it be posssible that i turn over the jars so that part get more light and completes the colonising?

you aint supposed to get light while colonising though ive read a little won't hurt while checking for growth,turn em over and keep dark and warm is what ive read, will speed up the last stages before birth.

mycelium doesnt need light, they need time, and sometimes air, flip the jars over so the bottom of the jar (now the top) sucks some oxygen up, if you give them light they might pin in the jar too soon.

I've had a little bit of trouble getting my jars to finish off also. I ran across this old thread by Anno that lead me to removing the tape from one of the holes in the jar, and placing a coffee filter between the lid and the ring. It worked GREAT! Before I added the filter, the jar in question didn't grow at all for like a week and a half, but after removing the tape, and adding the filter (for gas exchange) I expect the jar to finish in a week. :thumbup:

BTW, I wrap all my jars in foil to keep out all light they maybe be exposed to by the heater. Good luck.
