Leaving Mycobags in Incubation til 100% Colonization
    #2077306 - 11/06/03 04:05 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I have a friend that has three mycobags but two were innoculated at different times then the other one. Is it alright to wait for all of them to be 100% colonized before letting light in? So if one bag is 100% colonized, can he wait longer for the others to catch up?

Thanks.

theoretically, yes. but it could depend on how long. if you wait long enough it will start pinning before you want it to but i am not sure as to how long this could take. wait until an expert answers this question....

It is very difficult to get bags to colonize and fruit at the same rate if you used spores to inoculate them.

If you only have three bags, why not move the clonized bag out of the incubator?

It is better to let nature do its thing than it is to try to play God... on the other hand, most people would be asking if they could fruit their uncolonized bags prematurely right now.

Cudos for showng patience.

Don't worry about light. I've seen bags colonize in light with little to no adverse effect. The beauty of bags is they are sterile. You can watch 'em as they grow invitro. Bags tend to pin only after they run out of substrate to colonize. What's the worst that could happen? You'd get mushrooms.

The problem of taking the bags out of the incubation chamber is there really is no other place in his house with the appropriate environment...plus he has little room to work with due to parental units.

So you believe it would be alright to expose all the bags, even if some are not completely colonized, to direct flourescent light to initiate pinning on another or two other bags?

Parental units provide poor nutrients for substrate. I would suggest moving your bags to a non-parental unit. Cold, hot, light or dark... they will grow bigger, healthier, and better.

Nature's weird that way.

Thank you, come again.
