Colonization/Speeding Colonization HELP
    #25897315 - 03/26/19 05:05 AM (2 months, 23 days ago)

Hey, so i've been trying out shroom growing since i got my first syringe (koh samui super) last november. Completely fucked it up, twelve quart jars with all contams. Tried it out again and used up my syringe with no success. Got a Huautla syringe from the same place (little shroomery) and just had my first mycelium colonization (two chicken soup cans filled with a box of Rice and Vermicili dinner and Pistachio shells, sterilized with isopropyl and dish soap, steam sterilized in a pot for an hour and a half, put in sealed bags of bleached clothes from a lice outbreak at home). They were fully colonized at two weeks, so I bought a seedling heating pad from amazon and two small plastic containers to put them in. Bought one of those pressurized squares of coco coir from amazon and a bag of medium grade vermiculite, made two fruiting chambers. Ones a ratio of 1:2 - Mycelium, vermiculite & coco coir, and ones a 1:2:2 - mycelium, vermiculite & coco coir, sterilized spent coffee and white rice (test for nutritional value). Since the two cans worked, I've got about 8 more cans and 2 big salsa jars colonizing(a couple normal rice vermicili pistachio shells, some rice and vermicili and coffee, some rice and vermiculite). The method I'm using is just sterilizing, and putting them in the cans with somewhat loose saran wrap covering it. Is there a way I can speed up colonization? My fruiting chambers have no FAE holes, but the tops have two small latching points on the sides (I'm certain there's enough room at the length of it to provide some FAE, but is it enough?) and they're on day five with about 30% colonization, is there a way to speed this up also? I leave my spawn grain and substrate a little wetter so there's a considerable amount of condensation and humidity, I don't think it's too much but it's a considerable amount, i'd say the tops of the FCs have condensation constantly in a small amount covering the lid and the cans have constant condensation of a couple drops on the saran wrap. Any tips or tricks for speeding up colonization of my fruiting chambers or spawn grain? Oh, and the fruiting chambers have a 12/12 light cycle provided by two of the small LED portable light switches you get from Dollar General, one in the middle on each side of the fruiting chambers.

Lordy lord. It's ok to break your text into paragraphs, you know. That's also the weirdest grow I have ever read.

To answer one of your questions asked a few times: No, there isn't a way to speed up colonization. Assuming you are growing them at room temp (low 20s), then you just need patience.

To many things wrong with your grow. Your not using a PC which isn't the end of the world I guess, but making say 12 jars and only 2 making it through is a waste of money and time.

Your not using proper jars with seals,and filters and such

You make no mention of using a SAB or GB so I'm assuming your doing everything in an open non sterile environment.

Might want to edit out your vendor name. It's a no-no.

Wow, that was a hard read. Maybe getting some proper jars and work on your sterile procedures, might/probably increase your success rate. But I'm not any kind of expert.

  Wish you luck!

Temp in my house is always around 70 degrees, and the closets a hot spot, put em in bags of clothes for extra heat. Seedling heat mat is put under the fruiting chambers keeping them around 80 degrees at all times
