MYCELIUM!!! OMG
    #2217463 - 01/03/04 11:13 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Took me 6 days to start seeing that magical white stuff.. I used to PF Tek for simple minds and I used the 3 layers of tin foil over my jars and it seems all the mycellium is only growing on the top of the jars..

however i accidently ripped a hole in the 3rd layer of foil on 1 of the jars which exposed 2 of my innoculation points and that jar is colonizing twice as fast as the others.. was i supposed to leave the top layers of foil on and this is just a coincidence?

Anyways, Im gonna leave em on cause Im pretty sure that is what the tek said... If your wondering why Im not just checking the tek I'm getting a page cannot be displayed error..

Thanks in advance..
-Mike

If you have the verm barrier it's pretty safe to take the foil wrap off unless there's a draft in the area or something. Congrats. Now stow em away and don't check on them for a week, you'll thank me later.

I do have the verm barrier but should I take the top layer off or should i be safer and leave it on.. will it take longer?

Thanks for the info btw

since you have more jars, try out an experiment, analize your own results. the more exposed the jar's inside is, the more rapid the myc growth is... but there's a downside, the contam probability is increased by doing so...

so...the choice is yours...

I would try to remove the foil from on of them, puch holes in other one, and so on...

peace:)

Here, I along with countless others have done this experiment for you, MHS...

Can you guess which jars had unrestricted airways?



And here is a link to a really smooth thread.

Congrats on the success so far!

well done,seeing your first ever mycelium is a great feeling,it also tells you that so far you've done everything right.it boosts confidance in what your doing.
as for the foil lids,remove them all,colonisation will be quicker.
remember to flip your jars over when there about 50% done.
also it helps to give the jars a knock at this stage to break the cake away from the jar,just hold the jars upside down in one hand and hit the back of that hand down onto the open palm of your other hand.

Cool thanks for all the info guys. I'm gonna take the 3rd layer of foil without the holes in it off of every jar. So each jar will have 2 layers of tin foil over it with 4 toothpick sized holes at each corner of the square jars. I'll try to take some pictures that I can post..

Thanks again everyone
