Quick question about jar colonization
    #3466365 - 12/08/04 07:57 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hi everyone...I inoculated 6 half-pint jars using the pf tek brf substrate on thanksgiving day, but forgot to consider the fact that ill be out of town for 3 weeks starting 12/18. The jars are about 50-60% colonized, and i was wondering if i could lower the temp to slow the myc growth, so by the time i get back they will be ready. Would i be risking the jars drying out? Should I completely seal them to prevent co2 exchange and invitro pinning? (i keep the syringe holes uncovered during incubation and let the top layer of verm protect the substrate) Any advice would be helpful, i know someones probably been in this position before. THanks!

Alright, i think i'll keep the temps around 85 and hopefully it will finish colonizing by the 18th, at which point i'll put it in the fridge. Should it be airtight?
