important ?'s
    #3151648 - 09/18/04 07:21 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

is there a time frame for the amount of days i should keep the cakes in the jars after they've colonized?

Also, as i look at the jars, they colonize, but there's a milimeter or two below the lid that the mycelium hasn't reached. are you supposed to see ALL white, or is it ok that there's a little space visually below the lid. so when i take em out, will they contam?

oh yea, also....b/c of lack of space. i have 9 or ten jars that are or just about totally colonized. i'm going the sonic humidifyer route...if i put them all in ONE terranium, will that up the risk if one gets contammed, then they all will? also, if they aren't contammed now, is it possible they will after being put in their home? i noticed blueish stuff in one of the jars, so i threw it away. what other things should i look out for so all this waiting wasn't for nothing. any help to these ?'s is very much appreciated!...i don't want to fuck this up. They look good so far!

2) all white ,unless your talking dry verm layer
3)9 should be fine...but don't crowd them

wow george, you covered everything i was going to say. no wonder you're a mod!

yes, let me just emphasize that the dry vermiculite layer won't colonize, or shouldn't. sometimes you'll get wispy growth there, and that's ok. brush off the extra verm. on the top of your jar after you birth it, that's where all the contaminants got stopped... that's what the layer of dry verm. is for.

also, look around for double-ended casing. it'll help you with your cake yield.

oh, and cakes require a little more humidity than casings do, so be sure to have a your humidity plan worked out all the way. coolmist should work great.

blue is mycelium bruising, not usually a contam, like george says. that's also one of the tried and true signs you have a "magic" mushroom, but still, not all mushrooms that bruise blue are "magic" or safe to eat.

good luck on your grow! happy shrooming!
