how to slow down colonization?
    #373670 - 08/17/01 01:39 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

I've inoculated rye grain jars one week ago and there's some mycelium starting to grow, but I'm going away for a week. can I somehow slow down the colonization of the jars or doesn't it really matter if the jar gets fully colonized and stays in the jar for a few more days?

It doesn't matter. You might return home and still find the jars aren't 100% colonized. Besides, some people prefer to leave them in their jars until pins start forming... So in other words, don't worry about it.

If you were going on vacation for, say a month, then you could slow down colonization by keeping them in a cold temperature. Not freezing cold, but somewhere in the 60's would be my guess.

hey stefan.... you should be fine, chances are taht it will be almost but not quite fully colonized when you get home, so don't worry about it. If you are desperate to slow it down, stick the jars in some bags and shcuk them in the fridge... it would be optimal to just put them somewhere dark and cold (NOT freezing), but in August anywhere in the house is probably pretty fucking hot. If you are trying to be discreet about hiding them, stick them in a dark corner in teh basement..... the basement should be relatively cool.

Just because you are paranoid, don't mean they're not after you...

I agree with Shiz, anywhere under 60 is good because they go into a dormant phase in under 60 temps. But like the other 2 said it probably won't colonize fully in the time you're gone.

thanks guys, I'll leave the jars just where they are and case them when I come back. I was just worried that they could be 'overcolonized' or something. These are gonna be my first home grown mushies!!!!!!

No, they won't get "overgrown." Keep them as they are and good luck with your first venture with cultivating mushrooms!
