Shaking the jars during incubation.
    #4557354 - 08/20/05 01:54 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Im posting this because around the 4th day after inoc, I shook 1 jar out of 2. Now around the 6th day, I noticed that 1 of the jars has 50% more colonization than the other, and I cant remember which I shook. So my question is, will shaking a jar speed up colonization? BTW, It is a birdseed based substrate.

"The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."

Yes, it will speed up colonization when you using a shakeable substrate like WBS or Rye. This works by mixing up the bits of mycelium throughout the jar to uncolonized portions. So the mycelium does not have to creep its way over to those areas.

This does not work with BRF since it is a cake.

I've also found this to work well too. Make sure you don't shake it anymore than that second shake or you'll stall colonization.
