Anyone have better success with GT on popcorn than on rye?
    #3442963 - 12/03/04 06:13 PM (13 years, 17 days ago)

I read somewhere that popcorn was actually a faster colonizer than was rye. This is not my case at all. My popcorn growth is moving along very slowly and got started late. Do spores have trouble germinating on popcorn? Just wondering if it's worth it to give it another shot, as it was much cleaner and easier.

I wonder, and it has been confirmed, that if a certain isolated strain is grown on a certain substrate for generation after generation, that it gets used to that substrate.
Making it also harder to grow on a "new" substrate.

Any other veterans can comment this?

Also I heard that corn lacks B vitamins (BRF has), which influenses potency, but thats other story.

Well my old friend swore off popcorn said it wasn't worth a flip. He only uses WBS now and has had no problems. Responded to wrong post sorry MF.

Everyone Ive ever talked to says popcorn colonizes slow. I like it. Because it don't smell near as bad as birdseed when it is soaking.


Simmer it for an hour to get those popcorn seeds major water logged, and even boil a little and try to get 1/3 of the kernels to crack open. In my experience I get the very first signs of growth on the cracks of the cracked kernels, the mycel seems to love the nutritious white junk in the middle and will thrive super well in these spots.

O spliff my popcorn jar colonized faster then my current rye.
But not very scientific cause different strain.

I was adviced just PC the popcorn 50 minutes. Then drain and rinse a bit.
Put in jars and PC again 45 minutes.... Ok I got contams today but I think it was from transfer from jar to casing.

I never PC for less than 90 mins.

And that is most recommended by anyone.

PF jars only need 30 mins.

90 minutes is not at all needed for all jars. And not recomended by everyone at all. Check the popular rye tek of Magash for exampel or WBS tek of doc34. 60 minutes PC dude.

Btw my jar was a 3/4 pinter. Did only one.



Good luck then,
MF
