Mycelium death?
    #3420240 - 11/28/04 08:38 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Is it possible for mycelium to die while in the jars?

I have a couple jars that have shown no sign of growth in at least 2 weeks. Not really sure what I should do at this point, if anything.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

it is possible, but that would involve some serious abuse on your part.
give a few more details like are the holes in the lids taped over
and your incubation temps and that will help us diagnose the problem
a little better

The holes are taped over and tub-in-tub incubator. The temperature remains b/w 82 - 85.

Most of my jars have all colonized pretty well. But I have a couple that had a little wet rot(browning) and it doesn't appear the mycelium is growing anymore(at least on the outside of the cake)

the ones with the wetspot will most likely not finish colonizing, untape the holes
on all of them, and with the wet ones, flip them over and allow them to keep going
and they may finish the proscess, if the others seem to have stalled, then flip
them as well and that should get them going again.

I have flipped the jars, loosened the lids, and removed some of the tape over holes in order to release CO2 and moisture.

As for the ones with the wetspots, if they won't colonized, can I use the portion that IS colonized for a casing? Or is the mycelium dead, therefore incapable of producing shrooms?

thats questionable, it may have a bacterial contam, you can try removing the uncolonized portions but it will leave only a little to play with, if you do try
it make sure you fruit them away from the healthy cakes or you are probably
going to have a problem with all of them, trich sets in fast and spreads easily.

I use contaminated cakes for experimentation, dont treat them lightly because
there are some serious nasties that can affect your health.

Well I guess it can't hurt to try. I will just keep it isolated as you suggested.

Prolly gonna give it another week or so for a little extra assurance that the mycelium isn't still growing.

Thanks
