is there a faster way to colonize besides using jars. what about taking spores and squirting them into a jar w/ liquid malt extract.? i think i have read that somewhere.

malt extract tek is used to innoculate jars for faster growth of the mycelium or to save spores

i didnt mean to write that about squirting teh liquid into jars. thnx for clearign up waht the malt extract is used for though. i m still curious about if there is another faster way to colonize if i m going to be using the straw tek other than colinizing in jars.

It seems to me after reading posts on here, that if you have some kind of "food", for lack of a better word, for the mycelium it will colonize faster. Things you can use-malt extract, honey, even brown rice(flour, or grain) seems to have a lot of nutrients in it. The only prob is these things could possibly open your substrate to having contamination problems.-Will
