Fucking stupid mycobag...help
    #2352807 - 02/19/04 01:00 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Hey, I put 10cc's of GT into a grain based myco almost 2 weeks ago, and have been mashing the bag around as suggested every few days, anyways...I see NO sign of growth what so ever, what the FUCK is the deal?!

Well, to start, you only mash ONCE after inoculation... until you see growth (Mash at 20% COLONIZATION and again at 70-80% COLONIZATION... NOT EVERY FEW DAYS... who told you that?).

Next, you inoculate between the substrate and the plastic of the bag... not in the middle of the bag.

Then, you make sure your temperature is lower that 106 degreees f (80-86 is best)

Finally, you should ONLY USE 2.5cc PER BAG... 10cc is too much (bet you wish you still had spores)... :tongue:

Now, what exactly did you do wrong?

Well, I did wait 4-5 days before the first "mashing" and I did innoculate between bag an sub. as you said along with inside the sub., why should I only be using 2.5cc's? To much moisture?

Dude, 1cc would be fine. There are thousands upon thousands of spores even if you can't see them in the syringe. If you thought 10cc's would colonize it faster, I'd suggest using 1cc and do a karo tek and watch liquid mycelium eat your bags alive in a few days.

Adding so much spore solution could fuck up moisture content, too.

I'd say now it *probably* contaminated if it's been two weeks and you see absolutely nothing. You could be over-mashing the bag and damage the mycelium, which need a day or two to recover every time you break up the networks. This is why you only do it a few times.

Does it smell?

Are you keeping it at ~84 degrees?

The main reason to use 2.5cc per bag is simple... you save spores so you can try again. If the bag has no odor or smells like potting soil (smell the filter patch), you could try reinoculating the bag... between the substrate and the plastic. It might work.
