Pinning too fast- not enough colonization
    #3487135 - 12/12/04 07:00 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I've got several Fantaticus cakes and at least (4) need to colonize the bottom areas of the nutri. I attribute this slow attitutde toward cooler temps in the 70s and an oversaturated substrate mix. Nevertheless, most are doing fine and majority are knotting /pinning. What to do about the larger abhorts, pins and sequentially mushrooms that are still apart of this uncolonized cake.  Note: bottoms will probably not ever fully colonize within time constraints so this is more of a salvage of expected loss of these cakes; however this is only contained at the bottom of the cake whereas the rest [sides] are fine - pooling in the bottom is the culprit.  Do i let these things grow, or trash the cake. also, how suspect is contam to the uncolonized area. Maybe a graft or something- hell i don't know.

Flip the jars over. This will help displace the CO2 and help colonize the bottom.

Only problem is that they've been flipped for about 8 days, see i've had a rather lengthy colo time due to the lowered temps. And there seems to be significant water log damage to the bottoms- hence the discolored guk at the bottom rather than fluff colonized by myc. This is why it worries me that im being surrounded by pins with 80% colo on some of them. Any comment would be nice.

Just chop off the uncolonized parts, chances are they will never colonize if there is too much water, I've had the same problem.
