Experimenting with nonsterile technique
    #3786667 - 02/16/05 12:49 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Recently a friend of a friend of a pal of a buddy of mine had several cakes where the growth stopped completely at around 70%. He had success with popcorn jars that were sterilized but left open in the kitchen for 2+ hours, and they colonized extremely fast.

Since this person's cakes were made of perlite, instead of normal vermiculite, due to his impatience over a shipping error, they had less water storage potential than vermiculite.

As such, he decided it was time to give his jars a kick start.

Having had success with the popcorn in the same kitchen, he added about 4ml of liquid h2o from the tap to each of the jars which were about 80% colonized. The growth in the jars was already rizomorphic to an extent such that myc was attached to the jar lids as he removed them.

I'll ask him how it goes in a couple of days. He tells me he is hopeful.

Probably just luck. Unsterile = contaminates. Just too risky.

Regardless, keep us posted. :thumbup:

thats what most people say. but i like what you are doing, pal. keep it up. without experimenters nothing new would ever be created. We can always use a quicker and just as efficent way to do things!
