Popcorn colonization?
    #3260605 - 10/21/04 04:10 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hello everyone, after a long hiatus from this community I am back with a question on popcorn. I'm just wondering how long I should wait until they are fully colonized, should the jar be pure white mycellium like a PF-Tek cake? Or is it fine if there are some kernels poking out?

here is a picture of a popcorn jar

I am doing popcorn for the first time too. I think I will wait until the whole jars is covered with white and then wait another day or two. I guess the idea is to have nothing left for any contaminates to attach to. And, you'll have to wait for it to colonize either in a jar or in a case. Either way, it should take about the same time. I'll have to let you know how things go for me.

here's what i did with my popcorn and got full colonization in 11 days.

-used popcorn tek (soak 24 hrs, cook 1 hr, load & pc)
-knock em up, incubate 80-85F
-shake after 4 days
-shake 4 days later
-done in 2-4 more days.

good luck!
