Colonization to incubation to harvesting questions
    #4219461 - 05/25/05 07:28 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

hey,

as of now im going to follow this tek,
http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/26177

now what im confused about is this. what is the point of incubation and what does it achieve. and next question, is there any other way to case besides the one shown here? the one shown seems a little more complicated with the multiple containers. thanks

same question i had? why use the tub in a tub method instead of keeping the temp up using a heating blanket? but what incubation does is keep it at the right temperature so the mycelium grows over the cake

The way I understand it, re-incubating the substrate lets it colonize even further, establishing a strong network under/in your casing layer. Guys, am I right? After all, you just broke it up from the jars you took it out of. I think there is more than one way to case. You don't have to use multiple containers, you can use only one if you wish.

What is the advantage of using multiple as opposed to 1 large one.

if you use multiple you don't put all your eggs in one basket. if one contams you still have the others.

you can also play with different casing mixtures if you were interested in experimenting

Incubating ur mycelium makes it grow faster.

Leaving ur mycelium at say.. 72 degrees, it will grow probably twice as slow, if not slower, than if u had it at 84 degrees (F) constantly.

To sterilize the containers, stick them in a PC for 30 minutes or so, OR just wipe them with alcohol. It should work fine. As for the size, it really doesn't matter, but your casing layer should be 1/4 the size of the substrate layer.
