whats with popcorn??
    #2070174 - 11/04/03 05:32 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

wtf someone mixed up some brf/rye flour and verm. then they added the 'prepared' popcorn to have a multi-substrate. the popcorn was soaked in warm (turned room temp after a while obviously) water for 7 hours. then was simmered for about 35 minutes until they could bite into one and it wouldnt crunch, not mushy but enough so that one could bite it in half. then it was drained for 10-15 min and mixed in with the flour/verm mixture.

this mix was enough to fill 11 jars (someone underestimated a lil) and the 12th jar was just thrown together and not measured, approximated a lil brf/rye flour and verm and water ONLY. no corn. so after 4 days now the ONLY JAR that has germinated is teh one with no popcorn. do the kernels need to be super saturated and moist or what??? maybe one should soak for 12 hours and simmer for 45 minutes??? please let this person know, they are frustrated. seems that many ppl post about fast colonization of corn and this person has none.

blasted.

thats prolly the problem right there.. mixing cake like substrate and grain substrate. Why exactly did you add whole popcorn to your cake anyways?

however i did find all popcorn jars i did to be slower than Parakeet seed. But the rye was slower than both. except for the jar i inoculated with EQ on popcorn which colonized fastest out of all 15 jars.

None of the popcorn was soft to the touch either. I just soaked it and then PCd it.

I soak my popcorn four 24 hours and than i rinse and drain for a 1/2. after that i pc.it has been kinda slow to colonize but is comming along. also my popcorn was still hard because when i shake the jar i can here it. the fastest jar i got right now is a grain pop corn mixture......it's kicking ass and will be ready to fruit in the next couple of days.

From what it sounds like things may be dry. You added the right of moisture for the popcorn alone but then added the brf and that soaks up quiet a bit of moisture.

yeah but the vermiculite and BRF was mixed up in proportion to PF/MMGG whatever in 2:1:1 verm:water:flour. o well maybe another 12 jars will be purchased and done conventially and 11 old ones can be experimented with graduating moisture contents. payday is 2 days away yay!!
