Put in PMP and Myc. Still Forming?
    #4525971 - 08/12/05 11:51 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Could you guys help me out? I think it may be a lack of humidity the temps I got close enough (they kinda fluctuate) but never get too high or too low. But i see no condensation inside of my PMP. This is how my setup looks.

I couldn't afford the air wands (Talk about Poor mans pod) so i used some tubing that I poked a shitload of holes in with a sterile pin.

The lid I have doesn't exactly fit the tub (these were things I had laying around) But I cut the middle out of the lid and siliconed some plexi on it so they could get light. Then I duct taped the lid on i did find a spot this morning that air/moisture could be escaping from, ill fix that when i get off work.

I plan on misting in there with some warm water (I've already dunked my cake but didn't roll do you think this will hurt the cake?) to hopefully raise humidity.

The pump is a dual outlet, don't know the name but it was the best they had it was $23 so I don't think this is the issue.

When i birthed this cake 2 days ago there was still a very small section that had not colonized all the way but would not colonize in the jar so when I initially saw the myc. spread I thought this would be a good thing but it hasn't stopped its getting a bit bulkier bad? good? I don't know.

Please let me know what you guys think temps range from 73 - 78 (roughly) but I think its the humidity and again its only day 2 in PMP but the pros would know best.

I found some info during a search here, they say myc. will still grow if temps are too high as well as humidity.

Well i dont think temps are too high and see no humidity in the pod but i will move it just in case. Will sunlight through a window be good enough for light?

Im also gonna splurge (although i feel my starter in my car is goin to hell) and get one of those digital hygrometer/thermometers so i know for sure how to correct my problem.
