dead mycelium?
    #3690176 - 01/27/05 09:08 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I have a few uncontaminated jars from my last attempt, using the PF tek, on which colonization seems to have halted completely, with the most developed at around 50%, with inoculation in early december. The myc is still bright white, but not growing, period. I've tried flipping them, and the holes on top are covered with bandaids, so I assume there should be enough airflow. So, my question is, if my myc just died for some reason, who knows what, would it still look fairly normal? I have a grain crop going now that seems to be moving nicely, but I'd rather not write off the few jars I have left from the first grow.

Is your heat high enough? What strain are they? Someone more knowledgable about strains can probably help you or a link on the Shroomery

I second that...TAKE THE BANDAIDS OFF! Your not allowing any gas exchange keeping them on. You might also want to turn the lids a 1/4 turn.

you can use stallled pf jars for a casing but you must make dam sure to remove all uncolonized matter as leaving it there will harbour contams. I don't recommend this however, it seems to develop a uneven pinset everytime. an example of the contam factor is... I have had 4 casings contam since i started. 1 was due to a dirty casing pan the other 3 were from partally colonized pf cakes. those 3 contamed partial PFs out of 6 in total. my ratio for other casings thus far 1 out of about 50 contam
