Quick WBS Question
    #2054650 - 10/29/03 09:27 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

OK, just prepared four pints of WBS for the first time and one jar in particular seems to have a little bit of a problem. It's the only one of the bunch that came out of the PC with a rather large portion of the seed somewhat stuck together at the very bottom. It looks mushy and, well, mushy. I'm not to mad about it, but for the future, what caused this problem? Was it too much moisture or maybe the PC? Like I said before, it is the only one of four jars with this problem. Oh, and can I still inoculate it or will it just be a waste of spore solution and time?

Thanks!

Oh, believe me, I shook 'em all real good! They are all perfect minus the one I'm asking about.

i have had jars that turn out mushy on the bottom, some during my current grow. In my experience the jars with mushy bottoms usually had dry tops. I too shook them and it didnt seem to break anything up or mix it around. I inoculated anyways and they seemed to have evened out. waited for growth and then shook. I cased two such jars about 3 days ago.

so as long as its not overly overly mushy, i mean like gooey... being desriptive is kinda hard in text.... then it should be fine.

Alright, thanks a bunch. I decided I am just going to knock it up anyway. It couldn't hurt, and besides, if the mush part doesn't colonize, I'm just gonna chop it off.

Thanks again!

Make sure the WBS does not have cracked sunflower seeds in it. They turn to mush pretty easily.

I would have to go with both Seraph and Alounacara on this one... It could be either overcooked on the bottom, or just plain mushy. My friend has had luck with both situations, worst case it might take a bit longer to colonize.

If you have limited spores, just do four more pints. It's cheap and worth it to do it right. If you have unlimited spores to work with, give it a shot.
