When is karo done?
    #4601922 - 08/31/05 02:19 AM (12 years, 27 days ago)

The karo has globs of mycellium in it. does the water without visible globs still contain enough mycelium to start up a jar? it would be tough to try and suck up only the globs into the syringe.

Depending on what and how much you started the karo with, there should be small fragments of mycelium in the clear water. Also, you can vigorously shake the jar to break up those globs, and you should. It is rare that the globs really won't break up small enough to fit in a syringe unless you have really let the jar incubate way too long. (usually if it's gone too far you will have a mat floating on top of the surface).

You should be able to search and see pictures of what liquid cultures look like when they are ready. A somewhat recent thread in advanced comes to mind where agar and blue helix compared pictures. I think it was started by bluehelix and was either one where he was having troubles with a casing, or the thread where he reported on how he resolved the issue. I think it was in the last month.

IME, liquid media is ready in 5-14 days depending on temps and what and how much you inoculated it with. Even 600 cc jars started with only 1cc of spore solution are usually ready by day 11-14.

Shake the hell out of the jar, then let us know what you think about the dispersal of mycelia fragments. (let the foam settle, then swirl to get an idea of how much myc. there is).

Yep, shake well, it aerates it too, leading to faster growth. You can put bits of glass or a marble in the jar to help cut it up. If I have too many be clouds I partially suck them up with a syringe and spray them out quickly, this cuts them up a bit.

roadkill, is that before or after shaking it? the ones im talking about are 1/2 a pint with maybe a 3rd of the volume of the jar being myc. the growth doesnt seem to be growing much faster after a week. perhaps the teaspoon of karo is exhausted.
