Need a little help with popcorn tek question
    #3309401 - 11/02/04 03:51 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

After my popcorn tek jars are fully colonized I have a problem. I was pretty messed up when I set everything up and I didn't use the widemouth jars. I know, I know, I'm a dumbass. How will I get the myc out of the jars? And how should I get them to fruit? Could I just cut them up in the jars and case them, or what should I do?

Popcorn breaks up really easy compared to a lot of substrates.

If you are casing it, just put it in your glove box and use a sterile knife to cut it apart a bit. It should crumble right up and allow casing with relative ease.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Thanks a lot. I was really worried there for a second. I don't have a glove box though. Anything I can do about that? How about if I'm just really sterile?

It is possible that if you were extremely sterile.

What you may want to do is open a ziplock bag, hold the jar upside down in the bag and then beat the bottom of the jar until the popcorn substrate falls into the bags.  Try to hold the bag around the jar as tight as possible just to reduce the risk of contams hitting your substrate.

Ziplocks are generally sterile right out of the box.  :thumbup:

That won't damage the myc? Should I just case it right from the bag then?
