Amt. of liquid culture depends on amt of substrate

Does the amount of mycelium you get in a liquid culture (karo, honey, malt, etc) depend on the amount of substrate you put in the mix? I have a successful karo jar, but at a point the mycelium doesnt spread anymore. It appears to be as large as the karo that was added.

Will adding more Karo (say twice as much) provide twice as much mycelium colonization since the Karo is what it's growing on.

No. It will oversaturate the mixture with sugars and will probably not grow very well if at all.

Do you have it sealed up or fixed with an air filter? ie tyvek, poly-fil, etc..

Tyvek filter. When its settled on the bottom in disc form it appears to match the karo portion size. When swirling lately and breaking it up it settles to the same size without expanding any more.

i notice better mycelium growth with less sugar. I use a teaspoon per quart of water

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.
