Nearly Complete: Good To Go?
    #3571466 - 01/02/05 05:21 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hello Shroomery.  This is the only cake that has survived my first cultivation (because I opened jars and scraped in spores in a non-sterile environment hehe) but every piece of the cake has been colonized except for these two places which are gradually filling up.  I have a few questions.  First, does the cake appear un-contaminated and able to fruit once colonization is complete?  Second, about how long would "guess" it will take for the rest of the cake to colonize, I have been waiting on these little spaces for a few days now.  Finally,  with my previous cakes that I have thrown out due to contamination, I have found that my cakes will not come out of the pint jars without sticking a knife or another object and fucking the whole cake up.  Is there maybe another technique to use in order to get the cake out, or should I just tear the hell outta my cake and , in a way, case the cake somewhat like the crumple casing tech?  Thank you very much for your help, I couldnt have made it this far without yall.  Chronic.

Put that cake back in the dark and incubate it some more. Another week at least. Don't peek in on it, just let it go. If After it gets fully colonized it will shrink away from the sides of the jar a little bit and you can bump the bottom of the jar and it will slide right out. You may have packed you substrate too tightly into the jar. This could cause it to take a bit longer to colonize as well.

^^^ what he said.

anothe week at least. those are big jars, and a crappy shape for mush cult. turn em upside down, and if you must birth them, slam em on your thigh to loosen them. anything uncolonised at birth is a danger, so you could brand those areas with hot metal if you're superconcerned. i reckon all is well and you're gonna get fruits in a fortnight or so, though  :laugh: :thumbup:

Thanks for the responses. So I still have a couple of weeks? Is that because they have slowed way down in growth? A final question, When I begin fruiting, how far should I keep a 20 watt flourescent lamp from the cake? Also, how long can dunking be used to extend the life of a cake? if you keep rehydrating a cake by dunking, can it be used continuosly? Thanks, Chronic

Dude, you guys are great.  I slammed down the jar to loosen the cake two days ago, now there is about a tiny size area of uncolonized substrate.  HAH.  Also, I started some new jars Dec. 24th and check this shit out.  Is this normal?  Sorta spiral like growths everywhere?

Same Jar From Before



New Jar



Thanks for the help.  Im almost to my first fruit :smile:  Chronic
