2 questions for me an others?
    #3395377 - 11/22/04 09:48 PM (12 years, 19 days ago)

I have 2 questions:

1)Is dunking the cakes in a ratio of coffee and water worth a shit?
and
2)What would happen if one jar is inoculated with 2 seperate strains?

Dunno about the coffe dunk, but I did accidentally mix jars of colonized substrate into a casing once. They grew just fine. Check it out.


B+ on the left, *i think* PRs on the right, but don't quote me on that.

go over to the advanced growing and they have a whole write up on coffee. i could see the 2 strains in a casing but from my understanding if their is 2 strains during colonization they will fight one another untill one winns and it slows your time.

...no

two differnt strains of the same species will just grow together as two differnt colonies of the same strain, they will trade genetic's where they meet, and you get a hybrid. like myc doesnt fight like myc. and it wont slow anything down. mixing them together is bad because if one is contaminated, now both are contaminated, whereas if u keep them on their seperate sides, the side without contams has a better chance of fighting off the nasties long enough to fruit, so u dont lose the whole kit and kaboodle.

Don't dunk it in coffee.  The nutes in the coffee that are sitting out on top of your colonized substrate will bring you contams most definately.

You need to use a 50% water/50% coffee ratio when you are preparing your substrate. :thumbup:

That way it will have time to colonize in the jar before being exposed to open air that has potential contams in it.  Leave a cup of coffee out for two or three days, you'll see what I mean.

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?
