cake q
    #3223277 - 10/06/04 05:21 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

ok, this is my first grow, and i innoculated about 2 weeks ago. the jars look white on the outside. today i discovered a contamination on one of my jars, so i decided to take it out and disect the cake. on the outside of the cake it was totally white, but when i cut it in half, almost none of the inside was white. does the whole thing need to be white to birth the cake? or will the insides never get fully white and be the color of my original verm/brf mix?

thanks

The whole thing should be colonized before moving on. Once the jar looks 100% from the outside, just give it a few more days just to be sure it's realy 100%.

Sounds like maybe your substrate was too packed?

I innoculated one of my jars in a single place, and the mycelium has broken through on the opposite side that I innoculated. I presume that means it has colonized the middle, since mycelium can't jump. :wink:

well, the one i just disected looked fully colonized on the outside, but inside it wasnt even close... how do you tell when the inside is colonized?

You can't tell if the middle is colonized until you take it out. Yeah, maybe your substrate was to compacted. Did you shake your jar at all?

When the outside is done you give it a extra week for the center to finish. If a cake gets a contam it really isn't worth trying to save esp if it is still in the incubation stage.
