half pint jars and verm question
    #4709429 - 09/25/05 01:31 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

i have 12 half pint jars with bottom layer of verm and then corn and then a top layer of verm... i inoculated the jars with golden teacher strain this past thursday... i have them at 82.5 degrees. i just checked the jars and see no mycelium yet. but what im asking is when i inoculated i kept puncturing into corn kernels while trying to put the needle against the glass i did manage to squirt some of the spores into the jar but im not sure if i had gotten pass the top layer of verm. im pretty sure i did. but if the spore solution got in the verm would the jars not colonize? also, should i see something within a week...

If they didn't get past the verm, they will likely not colonize. You said you "punctured" the corn kernels? Then you should have gotten SOME spores on the corn. You should see some growth within a week.

Also, corn is better as a spawn then to use as a cake if you did intend to fruit the jars as cakes.

yes i am ... im using a fish tank heater with two tubs... i just cant stop thinking that either the verm soaked up the spores cause i didnt go deep enough .. i cannot remember how far down i went with the needle .. i mean my verm layer wasnt that thick maybe 1/2 inch the most ...
