Gas Exchange
    #2016039 - 10/16/03 09:26 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I read a post earlier about gas exchange, im in the stage of colonizing and its about a third way done, but its sorta stopped colonizing.


this is what it looks like

my question is: should i open it up to allow gas exchange and do i have to practice sterilization techniques before i open?

Looks a lil dry. If you open it up spore carrying air will get in.

What are those dark spots? Maybe you should just barely crack the lid. You would just have to make sure the air is very clean and have it in a sterile environment. You're inviting contams as it is with the lid being open so yes you would need to practice sterlization techniques when opening the lid. Filter discs rule. Check into them. good luck

ya its birdseed.

the birdseed is very dry/stale, maybe that is the reason. i transferred it from another container because it wasnt growing well.

im noticing some growth that resembles 'cobweb mold' but its not as big as in these pictures http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23418

is that normal?

That there is some cobweb mold. I would salvage a piece of mycelium, dip it in h202 3%, and then do a g2g inoculation.

h2o2 is hydrogen peroxide, 3% is it's concentration. G2G inoculation is Grain to Grain, basically perpare your jars like normal, but instead of inoculating them with spores, you use the already colonized grain for inoculation.

Does h2o2 kill off the cobweb, but the the myc OK??? Do you dip it full flavor, or dilute it?

1)definately add water
2)I dont think that is cobweb, it grows alot higher up off of the substrate and isnt as thick. I think you have mycelium and i think ur substrate is healthy. oh wait, i just looked at ur pic again, ahhh, that grey growth may very well be cobweb. Mycelium is also grey in its beginning stages, then turns to a bright white. hope that helps,~M

:shake: never open a jar until you're about to birth it. i'll let Fat Freddy explain:



all the messing you're talking about doing is a waste of time, imo. once it's got the lurgey still in the jar, forget salvage.
