shake karo jars?
    #3841365 - 02/27/05 03:17 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

any advantage to shaking liquid myc culture during growth, or should it just be left alone?

Leave it be and let it grow. Shaking will not help.

Uh I've heard it's very good to shake karo jars, if you break up the myc it is a lot easier to suck up with a syringe, plus it promotes more growth.

I've always heard that to. I've heard to shake once a day. I do for all my cultures. Works fine. Doesnt mean you have to. I dont really know if it helps. Didnt hurt me in the end though so...

i just swish mine around in a fashion that makes it spin. the myc. mat on the bottom usually makes a tornado lookin thing, then flies apart into shreds, if u reverse the fluid it gets mroe broken up. do this a few times and you will have a very wodnerful milky solution that'll be sure to hav myc. evverrryywwhheerree. also, do this before u suck it up inot the syringe,adn then before u inoculate. this will get ua good dispertion for a fast rediculous growth.

come on dogg, you know better. Shaking would help but it wouldnt be good, you want to swirl it so that the liquid doesnt hit the top and saturate whatever filter you are using.
The main advantage of this is that you will break the mycelium up and all the little chunks will grow. Its like shaking a grain jar, saying not to would be the same as not shaking a grain jar


--------------------
Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

I wouldnt SHAKE it, but slush it around like that guy above me said. I'd only do that a few times though, just to help spread the mycelium a little. I mean, it's not NECESSARY, but it'll help a little. The main thing you'll need to break it up for is to suck it into a syringe. Jumping jacks work really well to break up the mycelium.

Shaking your liquid cultures is good, but in moderation. If you keep beating your mycelium to hell enough, all growth will eventually halt.

The same applies to WBS/Rye jars; you need to minimize the amount of damage that you do to the mycelium colony. These days I don't break down the mycelium more than twice in an entire cycle of any liquid culture or grain jar, unless I absolutely have to.

I have to agree with smartass :tongue: OOPS! I mean tahoe on this one. Swirling is the best way.

This is true, or one could use broken glass or a broken up coffee mug(porcelin).

Though I prefer an Eberbach container. :thumbup:
