Did I just kill my spores?
    #2975568 - 08/07/04 04:01 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Ok, I used the oven tek to inoc. my WBS jars, the oven was at around 370F (to hot I know), but after I did my inoculations, I left the jars sitting on the pulled out rack for about 10-15 min. When I got back the jars were wayyyy to hot to even pick up. Did I just kill my freshly innoculated spores??

if the jars were too hot to even pick up then your spores are probably cooked.

Ok.....the jars were RE-innculated, hopefully 4cc's per Qt. Didn't fuck up the moisture content. God damnit, these better go! :thumbup:

I thought that I may have done the same thing when I "oven-tek"'d my most recent jars. They were sitting on the oven door however, so they were a little farther from the heating element. They sat there only as long as it took me to innoculate, and luckily, this last batch of spawn has been very successful. Sorry about your jars bro...

thermal death for shroom is about 104-106 F. This applies to the mycelium. but spores probably die to

Spores die at a higher temperature..thats kinda the point of the spores, then endo spores and even higher temp (I know these are producing endospores, just saying) but if to hot to pick up may have killed or stunted the growth. I did 8 Cambodians and they are still colonizing when I did some Brazlians at the same time which were cased days ago and almost ready to fruit. Plus one cambo never germinated anything. I thought they were all dead because it took a long time for any growth to show (about a week and a half using grains as opposed to about 3 days for other strains I did). Well anyway the point was that those were the first jars I did and the very first is the one that didnt go. It was only about an hour after being out of the PC and I could touch them but not pick them up for more then a few seconds. Hopefully adding more spores will help you out but dont just throw them away if you dont see immediate growth because I think this is what happened to me. It could just be the strain but I've heard from everyone that Cambos are very quick colonizers so...well anyway yeah back to more bong rips...
