1st grow progress..(pics)
    #2457739 - 03/21/04 05:50 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

someone suggested in my earlier thread that i change my incubator heater in my cooler...now i have a gallon jug with the heater fitting right through the cap...is this better off? not much air can escape through the top...but there is a larger body of water....will this heat better? or should i cut the gallon jug in half to get larger direct water surface contact



well I was changing my incubator heater today when i finally took a look at my pf jars...to my surprise it looks like there is some mycellium growth! i thought this batch might get contamed...that?s why i only made 4...here are pics





it looks like the growth is near the top/center of the jar...how will this effect my cake? when i innoculated the jars i noticed the syringe liquid would not flow to the bottom of the jar...it just absorbed quickly

the mycellium will spread...but doesn't it mean that all my mushrooms and pins will show up in the middle or bottom of cakes? would this be a problem?

also to note...i innoculated these jars with too much solution being my first time...nearly 6 cc of solution for just these 4 jars


yeah i thought about grow journal but it wouldn't be too entertaining since there are just 4 jars  :tongue:

the pins form off of myc. so if you get 100% colonization they will form on the outside of the cake.

THe mushrooms seem to like to grow from wherever the most moisture is from what I can see. It doesn't have any relationship to where it germinated at. The mycellium will spread all over the jar, and the strands of it will cross with the other strands, and then once it is exposed to light, knots will form wherever it is opportuned to form, usually around the base of the cake, and the top of the cake. There will be some on the sides too, but most of them will be hugging the verm layer below and on top if you DEC that is...

At least thats the way I understand it.

so innoculating in different spots is just for speeding up mycellium growth? i mean if you innoculated in just one area and you get to 100% colonization wouldn't you only get shrooms growing from the area you innoculated?

Multiple spots = faster colonization.  More points for it to start at.

It has nothing to do with innoc point.  Thats just where it starts, and it spreads from there to consume the whole cake.  Then when you go to fruit it it will get fuzzy bumps on it then little knots show up all over the place and the mushrooms grow.  If they only grew from innoc points, people wouldnt have mushrooms growing from the base of their cakes, as that is what was the top of the jar, and the needle goes in farther than that.  You'll be fine :smile:.
