When to spawn grain?
    #3918945 - 03/15/05 01:53 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

    When should one take colonizing grain out of the jar to spawn to poo?  Should one wait a few days past visible 100% colonization to make sure the myc is very robust?  Or should one spawn just as it has colonized all the visible grain so as to keep the myc "expanding"?  I thought the former was better, but for some reason I remember someone posting about not halting the mycellium's growth by letting it hang in the jar too long past visible colonization. 
    Can someone clarify?  Grassy Ass!  :grin:

My foaf usualy waits a few days past 100% colonization. Have waited longer & less. So long as content is 100% colonized - you are good to go.

I've kept jars in the fridge for months after being colonized...when spawned to bulk or more grain and incubated, sprung right back into action after a day recouping and warming up. Some have sat in my incubator for a week plus after colonizing before then going into the fridge for a few months..still fine. One jar, after going into the fridge, went back into my dark incubator and after about 4 days in the dark warmth, pinned everywhere in the jar.....

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
