incubation in dark or light?
    #4534628 - 08/14/05 07:00 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Alright. Totally confused.

When incubating to make BRF cakes, after inoculation, do you put the cakes in indirect light or complete darkness to colonize. I have seen it both ways in both teks and the message boards.

For example: PF-Tek "Place the jars in a safe place out of direct sunlight. Indirect light is all that is required. "

I know you do that for fruiting....but for incubation?

Help! :smile:

Thanks

I did mine in complete darkness...

cause I didn't want them pinning inside the jars.

Yeah, darkness is the best choice.

You want to incubate in darkness. I have heard of horror stories of guys doing it in direct light ....and by the time you jars are done colonizing they already have pins rotting allover....Kinda blows your 3 week investment away especially if you wanted to further spawn the cakes to dung.....

I put mine in a big tub with lid, in the closet in total darkness.
