colonization speed
    #358513 - 07/21/01 10:40 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

I've got 2 batches in jars, each started 2 1/2 weeks ago.
5 1 pint jars of rye+verm+water
5 1 pint jars of rice+verm+water
All show some white goodies crawling, but some not much!
I used the shroom wizard's recipe to get started.
The best looks like 15%, the worst 5%.
Is this too slow? I have let them be at room temp (72-79) but now have an aquarium heater and am thinking up of upping the temp. I wonder if that will make a big difference.
I look at them all the time. This is fascinating. Does the movement slow things?
My clock is looking at me funny. I have to go now to clean my rifles. Please consult with me

He has been extremely helpful with advice via email, whatever the effectiveness of his technique is.
Has anyone else tried this? Results?

Hey
I started my 1 pint jars 30 days ago and using the same mixture as you. My jars were roughly 10% complete. My temp would also fluctuate a lot so on friday i got myself a aquarium heater and put my jars the heater in a container with water. I checked them this morning and i could not believe that they are all roughly 25-35% complete. So i would say thet you should use the heater.

Sometimes the mycelium just grows slow. You should use the fish tank heater to up the temp to 80-85F. That should help the speed.

Yes definitely raise the temp. I did pint jars with rice/verm and it did better when room temps where in high 80's early 90's. It'll still take at least a month before full colonization. When the jars are 50% full turn them upside down this helps with the other 50%. Good Luck..


Tell me something good then I might agree with you..
