In a slump... need some feedback
    #3316216 - 11/03/04 08:08 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

A good friend, we'll call him G has hit a brick wall it seems. The past few attempts with WBS and corn have failed. Not because of contams, but rather dry substrate - barely any colonization.

Theories:
A.) Stove up too high while PC'ing
B.) TYVEK (yes, he seems to think that switching to tyvek from
polyfil allows for too much evaporation)
C.) All of the above

The answer is always 'C', I know :smile:

G has had the same problem with the WBS in the past and he has had plenty of success with corn - only thing that was changed was the tyvek, so what gives?

Another batch of both are in the soak now, so he says...

yep, i've been hearing this a lot, tyvek can cause the jars to dry out. after i read your post i went and covered all of mine with foil. not sure if squirting some water in would be wise, but i'm thinking about it....

G dumped the WBS jars and most of the corn ones. If he had a syringe, he would have injected a few cc's worth of sterile h2O...

...the foil should slow down the rate of evaporation on the jars. GL
