Myc growth question/problem
    #4562383 - 08/21/05 01:33 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Ok so last time i knocked up my jars they all went to shit(Contam'd or just nothing at all after 2weeks+) I accepted what i was doing wrong such as not enough water, jars packs slightly, hepa fan blowing over jars ect. So did 5 jars, knocked up with half syringe ect ect all else normal and all following tek exactly. Well its 8 days later and i gots nothing...again! I shook the syringe till i thought i lost enough juice lol so i dont know what the problem is. Anyways is Golden Teacher suposed to have long times? I am runnin a constant 85 temp so i mean these things should be growin up to giants and killin me in the night but instead they do nothing! Also when they grow i remember my last ones that myc it was kinda a "lighter" myc growth, as in it wasnt like hardcore "ice" lookin shards of growth, it was like a general coverage or something i dont know how to explain...but yea if you guys could comment me some info that would be grand!

can you see anything in the syringes pre innoc (not that it would make a diff)? are the syringes from a reputable source?
what is your mix in the jars, ratios?
peace

If it helps I have waited close to two weeks before. At least they are not contaminated. I would not throw them out yet. Do you have a thermometer in the incubator that is telling you 85F or are you reading that from a fish tank heater? Sometimes the two are not the same, you can get a therm+humidity meter from a petstore.

I do not grow anything illegal.
I do not sell anything.
I am, however, a very curious individual.
I also try to be helpful.

The two different kinds of growth you are talking about sound like they could be three different things. Normal mycelium grows two different ways, cottony growth and then rhizomorphic. rhizomorphic means "ropy shape" and its the better kind of cube myc growth. The other thing it could be is cobweb mold which looks kinda like myc but grows much faster and that is the way you tell the difference.

i suggest researching on Liquid Culture, which will quicken your colonization and give you much more liquid to innoc with.

also maybe try to get ahold of some Tyvek, to place under the seal of your jar, which will help prevent contams while allowing air exchange.

just some suggestions...  :tongue:

Contams in the jars eh? back before I had a pressure cooker (now with a PC I have even less of a problem) I never had that problem, I only ever had to worry about contams after I've birthed them. Are you sterelizing your needle? What kind of flame are you using on it? Are you steaming your jars or PC? If you are steaming how are you going about it?
