Colonization Question
    #433204 - 10/22/01 01:31 PM (17 years, 1 month ago)

FOAF has 3 PF/PF race cakes that were innoculated 4 weeks ago. They are about 90% colonized. They are still growing, but we all know this is a long time. They are inverted w/ no tape. Also, they are in some direct & indirect light. Beside the time, there are no other problems. Is this okay, and can fruiting still be expected?

Yes, and, yes.

Is it possible that PF's colonization time frame of 2-3 weeks is a bit idealized? I've usually seen it take 4 or 5, even if everything was seemingly perfect. If not, what can speed colonization?

Yes, indeed. As you have discovered, individual results will vary. I'm big on home ground brown rice, a good moisture content and a vigorous spore syringe. Add to that, a humidified incubator at 85 degrees, and you've acheived your ideal.
