Growth
    #4238076 - 05/30/05 10:46 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Ok heres the situation, jars have been kept at a constant 75 to 80 degrees, in a tupperware container. I first injected one pint jar with a whole 10cc of fluid on wbs mixture. This one took about 1.5 weeks just to start to grow mycelium. And once it did it was ropey looking. The whole jar is covered with white but i can still see that its like its wet because the whites are slightly different. You can also see small pieces of substrate, just like flakes and stuff. What should i do with this one, just give it more time to grow mycelium and let it dry out. I have the holes convered with micro filter cap between the the detachable lid. I know i used way to much syringe fluid so no need on bringing that up, lol.

Anther one of the jars I didnt inject so much fluid about 2 cc this one i real while but in certain places you can still see brown stuff (not big areas) just like grains of sand, its worse on the bottom. I am thinking maybe the mycelium growth just didnt pick up those loose ends. The reason I am asking these questions is because it is app. 4 weeks since i injected and from what i have read around here is it takes 2 -3 weeks. Just any suggestions would be helpful. I will be casing these when and hopefully they finish, so would i be jumping the gun by going ahead and casing them?

Yes.

What kind of lid set-up do you have?

Slowed growth can be due to Excessive Moisture:smirk:

Or to much co2 build up...

Anwser my Q ^ and i'll see if I can help you...better...lol

Ok I am using the two part lid. I unscrewed top part and laid the patch on then just returned the top part on. C02 buildup, could that be because i keep the jars enclosed 24 hours a day in the tupperware box. It cant be that much of an air tight container, its just a bin with a lid really. Thanks for your response and if you need any more info, pls ask.

Could be that 10 CC you shot in that one jar. May have messed up your water content.

Yep I should of read more before starting. Man have I ever read since, lol. Well looking at the jars once more the one i hit with 10 cc, is forming water drops on the inside of the jar. I know its not contaminated, but it sort of looks like the mycelium is clear because it all forms at pattern and you can see little clear strands mixed in with the rest of the growth. Its not a brilliant white color because of this.

I forgot also i have another jar that i injected at the same time, this jar has a very light colored mycelium growth all in the jar. I was thinking it was contaminated because it kind of looked like cobweb mold. I grabbed today and began looking at it. And theres these little black bumps sticking up. Could that be it pinning possible. This jar i used normal amount of fluid when injecting, and its pesa. thanks ahead of time

I think you may have to take the micro filter off, doesn't water just bead up on it?

The top layer of verm will take care of the water I believe. I mean its not like running water, there was like little droplets forming on the sides. The only thing i am worried about is contams. Out of 12 jars, (from three different vendors) only three have survived without getting hit with the damn green mold. I even staged the times i injected, different site, and everything. Still the green comes. I sure hope when i go to case it does not pop up there, but hell if it pops up in a pre sterilized jar (from three different venfdors of both jars and spores) then i dont know, lol. I never thought my house was dirty, brand new at that. But thanks for the response.

You ARE pressure cooking your jars, right?
