To birth or not to birth...
    #308843 - 05/03/01 10:32 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

I have some jars which are curently colonizeing. I've already lost a few of them to the dreaded mold. I believe the reason for this is a high level of water in the jars. I was wondering if the cakes have a better chance in caseing even though they are only halfway colonized, since caseing them would cut down the water log. Any advice would be apreciated

why do you say there is a high level of water in the jars? did you follow the pf/mmgg? if you think that its condensation causing a problem- have you tried removing the tape (if you've left the tape on the holes)? or loosening the lids a bit to let the excess condensation to escape? (not removing, but if you have them on tight, you can unscrew it just a bit to let the condensation escape) it'll also help w/ air exchange, which will help speed up your colonization.

HQ hasn't birthed a cake that has not been totally colonized, so she can't help you on that question. she's always heard that it's a *bad* idea... but perhaps someone else has had luck w/ it. gluck...

I believe it to be a condensation problem as the water level was fine during and after inoculation. The tape has been removed and I just loosened the lids. Also upon closer look of the remaining good jars, I found one to be colonized by strange creatures which I have never seen before. They seem to be some type of worm, and there eating my precious mycelium. Has anyone ever heard of or seen such a thing. The jar seems to be healthy. There is just one spot where these (worms) have eaten away the growth. Any knoledge would be greatly apreciated

Those are some HIGH worms what ever they are.
As new as I am at this I would suppose the worms are no good. How could a worm survive sterilization?

Peace and good luck but I would worry about these creatures.

well if they are qorms then it's not due to the water, plus if you got colonization then water level is fine,

birthing the jars early is ok as long they are colonized all around teh jar, i mean if the jar has growth going say 30-50% down the side, make sure there are no gaps between innocl.point since this mean that they are not colonized in the center yet.
