why use light immediately when using invitro?
    #3517054 - 12/18/04 02:08 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

i know that light initiates pinning and you want them to pin in the jars but i have read on numerous post that using light right away on the jars makes for better results and im wondering why? my thought is that if you used light right away that a couple pins may form and fruit but then say if you wanted to harvest them the rest of the cake is still uncolonized and you may create a disaster by removing it from the jar.....at least thats what i have read concerning light exposure using the normal pf tek and this is just the same thing but leaving them in the jars so i dont see the benefit.
any input is appreciated ...thanks!

I have no basis for my response but my hypothesis is that it will typically take just as long for pins to form as it would for the jar to colonize fully.

Correct....pins take a LONG time to form invitro since your missing a VERY important trigger (fresh air exchange). Also mycelium that isnt fullyestablished won't start pinning so its not ike as soon as you see little spots of white and they see light they think they should start pinning..they'll still stay in vegitative growth until they deveop a nice network...soon after the jars should be colonized..long before shrooms are ready. They also will take longer to grow due to lack of fresh air.

Thanks you just reminded me of some straw jars tucked away that started growing invitro..I should check on them :smile:
