wierd growth
    #3583644 - 01/05/05 12:35 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

So I had a first batch of jars that took a long ass time to colonize. I finally have two in a perlite terrarium. THey have been in there a week with no pinning. That is my first concern. I have humidity high (90 on my cheap-o humid gauge, I mist and there are droplets all over the walls and lid). Why aren't they pinning?

My big concern is a wierd brown growth on one of my cakes. it looked like it could have been a shroom. Looked like a retarded shroom cap. I picked it off today, it was hard and ball like. THe cakes didn't show any sign of contam. They were a little dry when they came out, and the brown of the substrate showed through at the bottom of the cake where it had dried out a bit. Someone please tell me what it might be. Also how can i shrink picture filesize so that i could have uploaded a picture? what do you guys use?

Did you dunk them puppies? If not, dunking will help with the dehydration and the cold from being in the fridge will cold shock them to get them started.

If it bleeds for a week...dont trust it

You can use Microsoft Paint to resize your images. After you open the picture in paint just click "Image" in the toolbar then select the option for "stretch/skew" and enter a percent value in the top two input boxes. So if you wanted the pics to be half the size they are now, just enter 50% as the value in both boxes and click "Ok".

if they took a long time to colonise and pin, my first question would be what temperature are you holding them at? Cooler temps will lead to situations like you describe.

Also, a week and no pins is not uncommon, even at the right temperature. Substrains that take a long time to colonise will often not fruit or take a long time to fruit...

I'm curious, how long is a long time? Jars can colonise in as little as 9 days and might take up to two months in extreme cases. The ones that take two months never yield anything great.

We got Nothing!
we're no longer selling jars.  :laugh:
