oh noes.....mycelium quandries.
    #4139281 - 05/05/05 09:14 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Ok so im definatley first time and using the PF tek. I inoculated 10 jars 4 days ago and i am not seeing ANY signs of mycelium at all. Not even a speck, on any of the jars.

Im using vermiculite, brown rice flour, etc. Lysolled my kitchen, boiled them using two layers of tin foil for an hour and a half, inoculated them 2 1/2 hours later (too SOON!?!?) with gloves, duskmask and all, and placed them in my little styrofoam cooler incubator, keeping the temp around 80 degrees. Im so scared i have dead babies. I was really paranoid about contamination so i heated the needle after every 3 jars. It made a popping noise when i did it -- bad? Eugh.

If this fails i still have 3 cc's left, i was thinking about doing the method with perlite in a tub, but i cant find it anymore...

Could have been too soon. I know 2 1/2 hours after PC'ing would kiil them. Keep hoping.

I took a nap after steaming, when I woke up I innoc'd my jars where warm to the touch, and when I broke the tape w/the needle, I heard popping. Within 3 days I had heavy mycelial growth. Good luck, have patience...

bah! if it isnt that, could it be that i packed the vermiculite too tightly? it seems to be fine grained as well. I would fill the half pint jars to the top with the mixture then pack it down a half an inch and fill the rest with dry vermiculite

I didn't pack my verm @ all... I think loose is better for air circulation. This is my 1st attempt tho, so I'm not sure.
