Colonization Speeds
    #4502269 - 08/06/05 01:42 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I posted awhile back that I had been planning my first attempt at growing. Now I have a few questions since I've been at it. I've had 6 cakes colonizing at about an average temp. of 75-80. It's been almost 3 weeks and that jars are almost fully colonized. Is that an abnormal colonization speed for Taz on birdseed or is it just me. Also, I think I have a contamination in one jar but I'm not sure. There is a dime size black patch surrounded by the mycelium. Was thinking about throwing it out soon, just gonna check on it in a few days.

colonization was probably slow due to poor temp conditions. Should be btwn 82-86. Sounds like you're doing qt jars too, i think the more substrate there is to colonize, the longer it takes.

I agree that the temps are a bit low for optimal colonization. Did you shake the jars? I usually get full colonization of grain in a week or less, but I've only used rye berries soaked and cooked in h poo tea. When they are 20% colonized I shake the jars, then again in a couple of days when there is obviously more growth. Shaking seems to speed things up quite a bit. What kind of air exchange do you have. How big are the jars.

PF jars have taken several weeks for me to colonize, usually, I believe when there was too little air exchange or they have been packed too tightly.

Im pretty new at this but... 86 seems to high since the jars retain about 5 deg of heat. Also my grain jars colonize in about a week as well as my pf jars. Ive never had a jar in the incubator for more then 11 days
