Cakes doing well after 2nd shake no growth
    #3429660 - 11/30/04 09:52 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I was cultivation Koh Samui on popcorn and was having great results. Before the first shake (5 days after inoculation) it took a few days to start again then the second shake 5 days after that i have not seen growth pretty much at all. Any thoughts?

how much of the grain is covered with mycelium? And do you have a tyvek or poly fill filter?

I'm using an incubator made up of 2 10gallon tubs one having a heater and 4 spacers at the bottom of it, stick on thermometer on the outside of the water holding container showing 82 degrees, then have a hygrometer on the inside of the incubator where the jars are and covering the jars i have a pillow to keep heat inside then the lid on top of course.

I'm growing 3 different strainds right now expierments on different jar cultivation techniques with different strainds. Koh Samui having no tyvek or polyfill, ecuador all with poly fill, creeper nothing. Right now there are just some grains with white on them not anything compared to the growth is was doing. There are only a few kernals that have a white bond to eachother

10 days isnt very long, most of my popcorn jars are fully colonised at 20-25 (so yours should be doing a little better maybe your moisture content is less than desired?). my hominy jars however colonise fully in 10 days, because the moisture and nutrients are much more availible with hominy. but hominy sucks in every other way besides fast colonising, because it will smash up if used as spawn, and it is just difficult to work with. the only time i would use it is to spawn outdoors maybe.


next time you do popcorn, simmer it longer (i do mine 1 hour!) untill it is super water-logged, drain it 45 mins, and put a half inch dry verm in the bottom of your quart jar, add the popcorn to 3/4 full, and pressure cook as normal. the verm will absorb extra moisture.

I kno that some strains are sensitive and may slow down (looks like it stops to the naked eye) when you shake them too much or too hard. Maybe that's what happened, but I don't see why it shouldn't start back up again in a couple of days. Gl

popcorn does take a long time, but dont let that scare you off, it is very nutritious and will give you big mushrooms well into the 3rd flush.


i also like to add 2 tablespoons of popcorn flour to my jars, it shaved off allot of time, because the mycel love the nutritious inside of the kerel!
