Fully Colonized Jar
    #3579678 - 01/04/05 03:53 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I have 2 jars that are completely 100% colonized. How long am i able to wait having them be fully colonized before i should worry about them going bad or drying out in the jars?

Thanks.

I think two weeks and they start to dry out.

Covered well with tin foil in the fridge...at least 1-2 months..I wouldnt go longer then 6. Cool dark place with tin foil....at least a month..maybe more but I wouldnt go longer then 4 weeks. They'll last 1-2 weeks in the incubator uncovered though.

Actually if your talking PF Tek those may last longer then grains without drying out with all the verm (especially in tin foil), I only have experience with grains.

The SOONER you use them, the safer off you are. Scat is right about how long they can last under differing conditions.

Best long term storage is IMPLUSE SEAL in AUTOCLAVE BAG (w/air squeezed out)& place in cardboard box (taped shut) & place in FRIDGE around 36 to 38F.

Put cardboard in moist warm environment=contam central

Keep cardboard cold and dry=no problem
