Air exchange during incubation quest.
    #495664 - 12/19/01 05:07 AM (22 years, 2 months ago)

I've read many opinions about this issue, some say air exchange is only needed after aprox. 75% of colonization, others say earlier and others say is not needed at all. I would like to read some of your thoughts.
Also, are this air exchanges afecting the relative growth of mycellium strain dependent ? Do diferent strains need diferent amount of air exchange ?

Ok my friend hers what I think: As different strains grow at different rates one can only assume that there is no neccesity for a linear increase in both 1) Percentage of substrate colonized and 2)Amount of oxygen used

Summary of this thesis - I theorise that different strains would have different rates of air usage .

Also the amount of oxygen that is available to the substrate in the first place would most probably vary alot as people pack down their substrate differently and have different ratios of indredients too .

My Elephant is currently growing Psilocybe Cubensis cambodia strain mycelium PF style and experienced a complete stop of growth at around 20% colonization he then took off the sticky tape from the top of the jars which covered the injection holes and they began to grow again causing him to beleive that oxygen depravation was the cause of the halt in growth .

I hope that helped to answer your questions .
