Dumb question about light exposure and myc growth
    #2825257 - 06/24/04 09:27 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

AFOAF has his jars all knocked up and is wondering if light exposure hinders myc growth in any way. He's not worried about premature pinning, because he'll have a proper incubation chamber in a short time, but right now he's got a few jars that're showing no growth, and is wondering if it's because they're just sitting out in his room.

Best temp for myc growth 86f.
Tub in tub is the way to go.
I don't think light will hinder, just premature pinning.
:goodluck:

Light is a bad idea,IMO,during inccubation. You want the myc to concentrate completely on the vegetative growth cycle to achieve 100%colonization as quickly as possible. The light,being a fruiting signal,will just confuse the myc and be a bad thing.

a lil light is not gonna hurt anything....I've seen 100% colonized pf jars pin in vitro but never grain...imo due to the fact that grain does not hold very much water(especially millet) so once its colonized its used up most of the water thats in the grain(which is why if you case straight grain its a must imo to do it rez style so the mycelium gets the water it needs to produce a healthy flush)

so if your doing pf jars I would keep them outta the light if they are 100% colonized but before that they shouldn't pin and if grain I wouldn't worry at all about it
