Condensation inside jar
    #2594218 - 04/23/04 11:13 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

All of my jars are colonizing wonderfully, except one. Yesterday, I got a magic marker and traced the myc growth so I could make that they weren't stalled. Today, that one jar has barely grown. There's no sign of contam and the substrate has always looked dry to slightly moist. Now, it's shruken considerably more than the others and it's all wet! There's a helluva lot of condensation in there. What's going on in that damned jar? What's up with that?

I'm no expert, but if it has shrunk way more than the other jars I would say that it is too dry, and the condensation might be the water that was in the cake. I think the cake is smaller due to more water loss.

is that particular cake sitting extremely close to your heat source?

no, it's not sitting close to the heat source. That kinda crossed my mind too. I don't know what the hell's going on. Psy-borg has a good point though . . . maybe that's it. If all else fails, I'll break out the cranberry juice! A lil' myc-soup ain't never hurt anybody!

I'll make it a case of ****curiosity killed the cake*****

well the cakes shrink due to the myc consuming the nutrients.

Take your jar, tip it upside down, and shake it up and down a couple times. Get it unstuck from the bottom and keep shaking it a few more times. That will get some new oxygen inside. Keep it upside down and keep doing this every day. My jars stalled for almost a week, and after I did this, they are growing like crazy again.




and don't be alarmed when the colonized part bruises blue after shaking it. That's normal.

Thanks guys, I shook 'em up yesterday and they're already growing faster. I'm looking forward to at least 6 birthdays on Monday!!

(I'm way too anxious for this shit! My patience is going to improve leaps and bounds.)

Yep. I'm finding out about this patience. It's killing me softly. I'll probably be okay after I get those damn cakes out of those 1/2 pint glass prisons.
