Stalled Karo LC
    #4643919 - 09/10/05 11:57 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

10th day on a Karo LC. 96/4, enclosed incubator, Tyvek tops, 82F, taken out once a day and agitated. Went from no growth for 3 days to explosive in 2 with about 30% coversage, which now have seemingly stalled. Other 2 show no signs of growth and probably were dead spores(different syringe). What could be causing the stalled growth?

I would guess its not getting enough gas exchange.

Some of my LC's stall its no big deal if you had explosive growth all of a sudden then the LC is probably done, it doesnt take much mycelium in there to work, shake it up very very well and use it, as for the two that dont have any growth stick them in a dark warm place and forget about them for a while, I just colonized jars from a LC that took a month to grow.

Wouldn't the Tyvek provide the right exchange rate?

I don't quite want to use them already as there's maybe only a syringe or two's worth when it could make 10. Looking at Roadkill's info, he shows pictures of what a full colonized one should look like and these are definetly not it.

Yes tyvek provides air exchange, and thats why you shake and shake the jar some more so the mycelium breaks evenly into the liquid, like I said you dont need much mycelium in there to work, I have never had a LC colonize like RK's pics but I still get 10 syringes out of a LC and they all work.

These are both indeed billowy clouds and look very healthy. How many days should be given to assure there is no more growth to be done?

I dont know because i allways spin the jar and break it up
Its a easy thing to do if you let the mycellium get started properly first

When I do mine I provide no air exchange to them at all other than leaving almost half of the jar just full of air. I do it via the silicone injection vacuum port ala ghetto. I just shake the piss out of em every day and once there is a noticable drop in growth I toss them into the fridge until use. Shaking it every day from day 1 seems to make it easier to keep the myc in small chunks, and doesnt seem to affect the health or viability of it either.
