Colonization with Rye time
    #3327111 - 11/06/04 11:00 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hey guys.

I know this is very premature but Im nervous like everyone else. I followed the grain tek from Magash using quart sized jars. I built my incubator TiT and placed the jars in on weds. Its only saturday now but I expected to see some growth by now, assuming that claims of full colonization in 7-12 days is true. When I first placed the jars in I noticed the heater kept floating to the bottom surface of the inner tub and may have possibly added alot more heat to the jars. Since then Ive bought a digital Hygrothermometer and placed the external sensor in the incubator to test temperatures, at its highest since then, Ive seen it upwards of 88 degrees F. It is likely its been hotter in the prior days.

Do you think I may have killed the spores? What temps render spores ineffective? Also is 3 days too early to see growth? Even just a little? Even Pf Teks start a little colonization quickly.

Also I used a syringe to inoculate so I am aware germination may take some time.

Any input would be great. I hope Im not a screw up here.

You should start seeing growth any day now. Usually takes a little longer when using vendor syringes usually 14 days or near there.

As far as the temps it depends on how far over 86f they got.

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?

yeah i agree with Magash (of course) but yeah grain jars colonize so much faster than pf tek i wish i never even messed with that stuff

good luck man and i hope everything works out for you

I second phantasm. I tried cakes once. I tried popcorn and it colonized in a week and a half compared to over a month for the cakes.
