mid-colonization dunk with caffein?
    #2456896 - 03/21/04 11:52 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

This guy at the mall wants to take his partially colonized 5 week old pf cakes and dunk them in caffein water with h2o2... good idea? They seem to be totally stalling out and it seems that h2o2 and caffein will help them out...

Would dunking a partially colonized cake just make it fall to pieces though?

Do not open a partially-colonized PF jar, ever. At five weeks that's definetly taking longer than it probably should... I'd turn the jar upside down, and if that doesn't work you might consider injecting some sterilized water through an inoculation hole.

Anyone know why caffeine seems to jump start mycelial growth or done any controlled experiments with it? It's a curious phenomenon.

Heh, and don't tell me it's because caffeine is a 'stimulant' because I know mushies don't have neurotransmitters for it to act upon :P

the jars were flipped and un-capped over a week ago. I say 5 weeks old cuz i'm not quite sure, but it COULD be longer. 3 jars are 15-20% colonized, the rest have a couple splotches... this is extremely pathetic growth. At this rate I could make new jars using caffein and have them in the fruiting chamber before any of these are done.

I'm asking this mostly because i pretty much give up on these doing well. If i oven-tekd I wouldn't have to worry about extra contams, and if they are going into a h2o2+caffein dunk, it might fend off any contams that are in there and help the myc out. Maybe i should throw caution to the wind and test it out as a possible cake-saver.
