Innoculating a few jars, need some direction
    #4109407 - 04/29/05 02:10 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I'm working with cracked corn, just had it soaking in a covered pot under a bit of water for 24 hours. Some of the kernels appear to have "popped", but most of them are still ok, should I try soaking a new batch for only 12 horus and throw this stuff out, or just keep working with it?

If it's still fine, there's some of the water that the kernels were soaking in, at the bottom the jar pictured, about 4mm of it, is that alright or should I drain that out?

Also, I heard to ask for polyfill or "pillow stuffing" at Wal Mart, there aren't any around me.. so would the stuff inside this pillow be fine?

Also, since I soaked the cracked corn, do I need to add water to the jars before I PC them... if so, how much?

Well... going by the logic that water cooks corn, and I don't want to have a jar full of corn mush, I'm going to PC them without any water in it. If it doesn't work I've still got enough corn for 7 more jars.



Also, I'm going to be using the perlite humidification method in my TIT setup, from here

Anyone any experience with this?

Polyfil isn't Polyester....:rolleyes:

Polyeyster will hold water like a bitch and contam....

If you live in the states...PM me and i'll see if I can hook you up with some tyvek, fuck polyfil :thumbup: lol

Polyfil can be found at wally-world and just about any place that utilizes things for pillows...:shrug:

Gl either way

Cracked corn is fine, but it doesn't fruit well on it's own...

Might want to get some straw and h/poo...use your corn as spawn and mix with what i just said...add some verm. in there as well...That way you'll be packed with nutes and water...:thumbup:

Thanks for the reply, but there aren't too many places around here where I could get straw.. and I'm guessing h/poo is horse manure, there's not much of that around here either.

But I could order some vermaculite on the internet, could I use coco coir and vermaculite instead?

Verm. = No nutirents
Coco-coir = Read right above this...

Cracked corn WILL fruit....but just not very well on it's own...

I probably would have mixed in a bit of verm. with that corn to help hold moisture....Grains don't hold water very well...

My last grain grow was WBS, i didnt add verm, i had a Nice flush, like an Agar flush , Beautiful...then after they got at about 2-3 inches, they all popped their veils and stopped growing...it blew ass, they stopped b/c the sub. ran out of water, verm. would have given me the water i needed and it just didnt have it :thumbdown:
