3 weeks and..is it contam'ed? (pics)
    #4532137 - 08/14/05 02:20 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

thanks for looking at this, it's been three weeks and it was growing pretty good for the first 2, but then it slowed down dramatically and turned from brilliant white to this dingy off-white in spots... is it lack of moisture? or is it mold? dunk ? thanks for the help

It looks fine, but if your worried just seperate it from the rest and within a week or two if its contam it will let you know :smile: contam's arnt shy.

Oh and just looking at your inoculation point, it looks like you dont angle the needle towards the glass, if you do it squirts spores all down the glass and the mycelium has a larger start off point and colonizes faster, especially the bottom will take ages if all the points are like the one in that picture

ya... i didn't inoculate against the glass (doh), i kinda just had one inoculation point in the center of the jar pretty much and let 5 cc's come out. Thanks for your help, and ...if it takes ages for this one to colonize, should i add water or anything, will it dry out?

Ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaa!. Why am I laughing you may wonder? Because apparently Im not the only one that used 5cc's instead of the called 1cc. I just inoculated mine yesterday, and found out I used 5x the ammount I should have. So, If u used 5cc's, DEFINATELY dont add any water. There is tooooooo much as it is.

When sterilizing your jars, if theres no holes in the lid (not covered by silicone)and the lids on tight, firstly it can explode :smile: but if it doesnt blow, it creates a massive vacuum :smile: and when i pierced the silicone i didnt even press the plundger and it sucked about 5cc into one point in the jar .... i was fuming

and other jars which i used half cc per hole (with 4 holes)are birthed and the one with 5cc into one hole is still colonizing. So more cc into the hole doesnt mean quicker colonization. and yea dont add any more water, worst case sinario if it dries up it slows colonisation... worst case sinario if theres too much water or if you add water is contam ... id rather slow colonisation :smile:

First image, you got a brownish spot just bellow the mycelium. Is its texture similar to the rest of the substrate, is it the pic, or its it something growing there ?

Besides, the central inoculation must be considered as an extra inoculation point, if you ever decide to make it.  Mycelar growth will be faster if you make 4 small 0.25cc shots against the glass than one central 5cc inoculation.
Dispersion=faster growth

Besides, from where does the mushrooms grow, the inside or the outside ? :wink:

thanks for all of your opinions, and MAIA, i think it was just the glass or something cuz it looks like mix shining through the myc. growth;

and i suppose the mushroom could grow on the inside... if i took the cake out in a while and dissected the remaining mix off of the cake, and just used that?
can i do that? cuz...this may take a while for the whole thing to cake up...

jasus maia ... i thought u said 4 0.25cc points then a 5 cc in the center :smile: was going to ask you how many syringes you waste a day :smile: but guessing you ment 4 0.25cc points rather then one 5cc in the middle :smile:

hehe ! That's it. But you also can make en extra 0.25cc on the center, it won't mess the water content that much.

Uhm... ok so now the myc pulled away from the glass about 1/4 of an inch, and pulled the vermiculite with it... is it like part of the cake forming buy contracting like that? its not drying up is it?

Like I said before, my plan is to take it out scrape whatever vermiculite is on outside of the cake (cake i am assuming is in the center cuz that is where i shot it), take it out and let it fruit...

is this sensible?

thnx
