Karo help--my myc will not fluffify itself
    #3273543 - 10/25/04 12:38 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

  So I've tried several karo jars, and all seem to colonize slowly.  I've heard one shouldn't use karo jars if they're old as they are prone to contams.  Most of my karo jars have grown out the myc as sort of a collection of white stuff that settles to the bottom of the jar.  When I swirl it, the myc floats around, but it is nothing like some pics I've seen with that bloom-cloud of myc sitting at the bottom of the jar.  The one jar I have that looks like his is something like 2 or 3 months old; it's contamed, too, but I just wanted to keep it around to see what happened to it.  Here is a pic:



Recently, I used  a vendor syringe to innoc. some grain jars with PES Hawaiian.  I also used this syringe on two karo jars.  The grain jars colonized very slowly, and the karo jars I used this syringe with are not doing terribly well, either. 

Any ideas?  Currently, I'm seeing some growth in the karo jars, but not like I had hoped.  The myc isn't looking robust, or cloudy.  It's mostly just bits here and there that settle to the bottom, though if I swirl these newer karo jars, I will get some "snow flakes" of myc floating around. 

How long, in incubation temps (and is 80 correct for karo?), would a karo jar be viable if no contams appear, it is kept at incubation temps, and the myc is just growing slowly? 

Any ideas?  Thanks very much!  :grin:

Incubation temp should be 85 just like any normal colonization, thats prolly why it's going so slow.

Might even want to try some honey water or agar instead, I have had extremely good results with honey water and Ecuador.

why is your kyro jar so brown?
or is that honey?
if you used light kyro your jar should be clear

That pic is of an old jar. It was just to show that the myc would get into a cloud, but that is a contammed jar. The others are pretty clear.
