    #3187064 - 09/27/04 05:47 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

i started some EQ on the 22nd on popcorn and some other EQ on BRF on the 23 and the BRF already has some mycelium on it...WTF i though grian was suppose to grow faster..both in the same incubator. i have my quart sized popcorn fitted with a pollyfill filter but im not sure if im suppose to take the alumin foil when i PCed on or off the jars while in the incubator??

ya,where as the PF jar you may have made it perfectly,the grain jar may not have the right moisture content,ect..you have only 1 of each so its not like you could compare one popcorn jar to another.normally popcorn is faster but like i said,it could be anything,and since there is nothing to compare it too,its hard to say.
BTW the foil can come off.As long as you have a good pollyfill plug your golden.
give it a few more days,and next time you should try at least 2.

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

Grains grow faster because you can shake them. If you didnt shake when you squirted in the spores like your supposed to then germination would start where you dont see it as opposed to BRF jars.

But really when grain is faster has nothing to do with germination but the fact that when there is 5% growth and 50% growth you should shake the jars which disperses the mycelium throughout the jar. BRF jars can stall much easier.

Then of course there is the whole water content thing if the popcorn is to wet or to dry growth could be slow but I dont think this is a real problem..
