It just stops growing...damn it! HELP!
    #4677288 - 09/18/05 12:49 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

When I inject spores into my substrate it starts to grow and then (about the size of a quarter) it just stops!

My mix:

6 cups coarse vermiculite
3 cups brf
3 cups Spring Water

Mixed - loosely dropped into 1/2-pint wide mouth jar.
Fill to the line (leaving about 1/2 from the top)
Fill the rest of the way with dried fine vermiculite.
(2-4 holes in the lid for needle).
cover holes with Breathable table (from First Aid isle Wal-mart).

When it does grow it takes like...6-8 weeks to colonize!

I have it at about 81-84f (water incubator).

Can someone help me?!?!?!

is that all the holes you have in your lid is the ones for your needle to go into.. i only did cakes once before i whent to grain, but with grain i have a 1/4" hole in the middle of all my lids to allow for better air exchange and either fill it with poly-fill or ptu a tyvek filter over the lid.. mabye try something like that..

Water incubator is just 2 storage totes (same size) with a submersible heater in one (with water) and the 2nd dry tub is on top. The heater heats the water to 82-86f therefor heats the content in the dried tub (my substrate jars).

Take everything off the lid? Do you leave the lid on?
Another words (since I am not using foil) just take the tape off?

Yes willmafingerdo...just the 2-4 holes that I have for the needle. I have read quite a few simple teqs (I believe this is PF TEQ) and I did not see any info. about more holes for the 1/2-pint jars.

umm let me just get something straight.....you are STERLIZING the jars correct? i mean im assuming you do, but you just didnt say this here in the forum.

also refering to water incubator is more easier to just say T.I.T Incubator, people will understand a lot more. (Tub in Tub)

6-8 weeks is ridicolous. if i dont see 90% colonization in 2.5 weeks, i chuck them out. what strain are you using? However i dont think that trully matters, it more the less the enviorment and the way the subtrate is made. I do 2/3 cup of verm, 1/4 cup of BRF, and 2/3 cup of water for every 1/2 pint and my shit always turns out good.

Good air exchange is actually really good for the growth of myc during colonization, also as mentioned above - do not leave tape over the holes.


--------------------
No matter what I say and no matter what I write here.

I'm sick of always looking at this page with a blank stare.

ShroomArtist84...do you have a mix to do 1 doz. jars at a time?
TIT....got it!
Yes...sterilized for 65 minutes (or so) at 15 psi.
Spores are good spores...this I know.

How many holes do you have in your jars?
Do you have tape on the jars during sterilization?
Are you putting vermiculite as a top layer of the substrate before sterilization?
