LC question
    #4633211 - 09/08/05 10:33 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

About 2-3 weeks ago I started my first LC using Karo water.It's been incubating,mostly in the dark and getting regular stirrings. After all this time I've only seen a myriad of small floaty bits,until 2 days ago. I have a very small,maybe 5 mm, of strand. If nothing else looks bad,is it just a slow starter? and when it's time to draw some up should i use a needle or just the syrnge? If it's heavily colonized like the pics I've seen will all that goopy myc be drawn up by a needle?

History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of men...GO GO GODZILLA!

well, 2-3 weeks is kinda long to just start showing growth. I usually start to see the small bits of growth like you are talking about in 4-7 days. What temp to you have it at? That could play a big part in it.

As far as pulling the material into the syringe, next time, add a marble or something to that effect to the jar. Once you are ready to put some LC into a syringe, you will shake up the jar and the marble will help to break up the mycelium. They you will have some free strands in the syringe instead of a giant wad of mycelium.
