2 quick questions about colonizing
    #2010413 - 10/15/03 02:53 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

this will be quick:

I innoculated about 32 jars bout 4 days ago, and am wondering just now if:

1) should i tape the holes on the jars?

2) At one point, the temps in my cardboard incubation box got up to maybe 100, 105 degrees F, but only for an hour at most, and doubtfully the whole box was that hot, the thermometer was at the top near the heat source. Did this fry my spores?

Thanks

Welcome to the Shroomery!

1) Yes, if you have a filter on the jar.
2) That shouldn't be a problem IMO.

I wish you that no contaminants entered your jars trough the holes. Good luck.

i never use tape and never have problems...it's a matter of choice,i belive that they colonise quicker without tape.

thanks for the help so promptly. I actually checked and posted on the shroomery religiously about 3 years ago, then stopped for a while. My old handle I don't even remember. I just forgot alot of the details, so i just needed a refresher.

How long should I wait before getting concerned if I don't see any mycelium growth?
