Help!!!
    #4415644 - 07/17/05 06:26 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Sorry, I'm new at growing so these might be some dumb questions to the more experienced but anyway

1.I have one jar that is fully colonized and the rest are almost there can I start casing with just one 1/2 pint jar?

2. I only put two holes in the mason jar lid when inoculating but only one side of the jar looks contaminated can I split the cake in half and save the good side?

3. Can you use the contaminated jars over again?

4. When inoculating should you use one whole spore syringe for one jar?

5. On only one side of my jar is healthy mycelium growing the other side has nothing (I forgot to inoculate the other side) so when should I start casing do I have to wait till the jar is fully colonized?

Thanks for the help

Yes, but you should wait till you have more. The more spawn the better.

2. I only put two holes in the mason jar lid when inoculating but only one side of the jar looks contaminated can I split the cake in half and save the good side?

You really should'nt. Is it worth dying over a stupid cake?

3. Can you use the contaminated jars over again?

If cleaned REALLY good with bleach water.

4. When inoculating should you use one whole spore syringe for one jar?

No, 2-3cc's per 1/2 pint jar should do the trick.

5. On only one side of my jar is healthy mycelium growing the other side has nothing (I forgot to inoculate the other side) so when should I start casing do I have to wait till the jar is fully colonized?

Yes, otherwise you are most likley doomed to get contams!

Thanks for the help

A piece of advice before we part:
Don't knock of Death's door. Instead ring Deaths doorbell and run away, Death really hates that!

1. More substrate=more shrooms. The amount of cakes you use will help determine the size of your flushes.

2. Stupid idea IMO. Other people will tell you all kinds of tricks to save it. Why? It's just 1 cake.

3. If the jars are washed out good. You will be sterilizing them again anyway.

4. 1cc per jar, more than that is a waste IMO and you may get contams for having too much water in the substrate.

5. Waiting for 100% colonization is HIGHLY recommended.

Except for question #4, we seem to be in agreement :smile:
