how long to germ with popcorn?
    #2550605 - 04/12/04 10:28 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

i innoculated some popcorn jars 5 days ago and so far i cant see any signs of mycellium growth at all. i may just be a bit impatient but when i used millet i saw lots and lots of myc by this time. should i worry or is this normal for popcorn?

Yeah, germination time on popcorn can be a little slow compared to other grains IME. I wouldn't worry yet. give it at least another couple of days, and if you are shaking the jar regularly, stop until you see mycelium.

there are a lot of variables in colonization/germination times... I've had 2.5 Lbs (dry weight) popcorn fully colonized in 2 weeks and others that took 3 months... patience is the key

try using a type of gas exchange for your jars if you are not already. Tyvek envelopes are free from the Post Office. Just tape small squares of it over the injection holes in the lid. Also try inverting the jars on a towel after they are about 90% colonized. Maybe that will help.
