Corn Tek Question???
    #3246818 - 10/12/04 12:43 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I have 10 one-quart jars with corn in them. I let the corn soak for a day, drained for a half hour and then pc'd for an hour and fifteen minutes. I inoculated all but one with 1ml of spores, the other with 2ml. My questions are: Should I have inoculated them all with 2ml? and When I pc'd them I put tape on the holes. Should I remove the tape now that they are incubating for some gas exchange? I think I might remove the tape on two of them now just to see what happens. But any input would be greatly appriciated. Thanks

didn't the tek call for the whole syringe per 1/2 gallon? 1/2 gallon is 2 quarts... so it would've been 5ml per jar by the tek.

But it shouldn't matter. It'll just take a day or two more to colonize. I wouldn't take additional risk with contam by taking the tape off. But then, I'm a nOOb.

Good luck.

I checked today and found growth in one of the jars. At least now I know they got enough spores for initial growth. I'll check in a day or two to see if any others grow from such little amount of spores.

Dude did you use tyvek under the lids??

If not then If you take the tape off your jars will fail.

What type of lid set up do you have?

I just had the jar lid with one hole. Then I put masking tape on top of the hole after innoculating. Did I mess up with that? And if so can I save them. I did notice that there was myc. growth in one jar. Does this mean that I won't have proper gas exchange. Ahhh! Well, I can always re-do them.

No, don't redo them. Get some tyvek or even a couple of coffee filters should work in the meantime. take the tape off quickly and put the tyvek disk/coffee filter on. Should be OK.

IMO, never use masking tape. Not very good against pressure/moisture/stuff... It was designed to peel off easy and cleanly.

Also, I've read quite a few stories about straight corn Tek. I kept hearing it's good for spawning, but the shrooms, if you grow shrooms on corn alone, gives you a more artificial feel. I just made a quart of corn jars too, since I ended up with 2 more terrarium. I'll let you know how that feels in about a month or two.
