Some Basic Casing/Jar/Humidification Questions
    #2823497 - 06/24/04 10:05 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hey Shroomery,

Three quarts of popcorn and three quarts of rye berries are colonizing. Tyvek is being used for gas exchange, however, instead of puncturing a hole in the metal lid, the lid disc has been removed completely, and a Tyvek disc that is larger than the opening of the jar has been put in place with the screw on part of the lid. The grain seems to be drier now than when it left the PC, is it possible that moisture is being lost because the gas exchange area is so large? Also, would it be practical to inject several CC's of cooled-down, boiled water to the jars to add moisture?

The colonizing mycelium seems light and kind of whispy, not strong at all, which may be from the lack of moisture.

Now for the casing/humidification question. If there are four quart sized casings in a terrarium without much space being left over, would the moisture escaping from the casings be enough for humidification purposes for P.cubensis?

thanks in advance.

Yes, that is going to be a problem for sure.

You may not have a choice soon.

In most cases yes. In this link it shows how to use tyvek grain tek that shows lids

Thanks a ton Magash, your method for the preparation of rye was being used for the rye jars. The only thing that was not followed was the puncturing of the lid. Next time I'll have to fix up the lids the right way to eliminate the problem.

I'm going to go prepare several water syringes for re hydration of the grain. I'll post about what happens if something does happen.

It took almost a week before I saw growth in the popcorn and the rye jars were only innoculated on the 16th, so no growth on rye yet.

I have boiled water and pulled up 10cc per syringe in 3 cleaned syringes and after they cooled down to room temp I shot up the 3 popcorn jars with them since the rye did not seem too dry upon closer inspection. I also covered the Tyvek disc area with a piece of tape to lower the gas exchange, the portion of tyvek uncovered by the tape is about the size of Magash's lid holes.

Thanks Magash, if all goes well I will update again.
