Slow colonisation with Rye....should I start again?
    #4450229 - 07/25/05 01:26 PM (12 years, 2 days ago)

Ok, its been 8 days now and I have less mycilal growth than the picture in the tek at 3 days. I followed the instructions exactly, so whats going on?

I had great success with popcorn in terms of fast colonisation (Done in about 9 days) but fruits were small.

The only two explanations that I have are that I didnt squirt enough spore solution into the jars........I used 1ml/1cc per jar, or that the spores are a little old, were begining to clump together in the syringe. However, they were fine for my popcorn 3 weeks previous. (I only used 1ml/1cc then also)

I am becomming so frustrated with this hobby.....it is like 1 step foward two steps back all the time.

Any ideas folks...........and should I start again?

I am thinking about returning to the popcorn..........but people keep saying that Rye rocks..........so WTF???

Are you using it as a substrate or as spawn?

I am using both the popcorn and rye as a substrate at the mo.

I want to try a poo tek soon, but I am waiting for my freshly aquired poo to dry out.

Why is my rye so slow to colonize????
