Thick Mycelium
    #344543 - 06/19/01 07:42 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

My jars are still not moving past 95 % colonization. However, I noticed that The mycelium near the last part colonized is starting grow very very thick upon itself. Almost triple what it is on other parts of the jar. Is this a sign that I should birth them? Would it be ok to case them still at 95 % or should I cut off the un-colonized part

The clock is ticking...
Im a total newbie but Id tell you to be patient. Is there any
reason you can't wait? If not just let the process unfold at
it's own pace.

Assuming I understand your substrate correctly (brown rice and verm right???) or even if you might be using something slightly different....the rule of thumb is (or at least I have noticed) don't let your soon to be cakes pull away from the jar walls. That is, if it begins to shrink and pull away.....have a big phat b-day!!! These are the areas that also have water build up as well right?? I would also bet that if you birth the cake, that area which shrank the MOST will end up as a dead layer of mycelium upon the cakes..... (ie. the tripled up layer you proposed) Not in CONCRETE though....just what a practicing mycologist has noticed once or twice... At times I have just sliced the area which does not colonize off...like you said 95% huh? Well, that's a fine batting avg!! Sometimes a straight double ended technique is order for this....hope this helped a bit :) BTW=what strains you got cooking??? PM me.......

YES, I KNOW ROCKSTEADY!!!

hey, plowking, yes, case them.... just get a sterile knife, and cut the part that is not colonized, and case them! i had green mold on my cake before i cased them just recently, all i did was burn it, and cut the contam off. and cased it as if it were a 100% colonized cake. i used NO sterilization on my casing, and i now have at least 35 nice looking pins, with NO conamination!

good luck!
