Yet Another Question!
    #506590 - 01/01/02 03:41 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Hi guys, HappyNewYear&Stuff...
I've some PF tek jars but my problem is that the mycelium starts growing at the top of the jars and wouldn't spread. I tried shaking it but still doesn't work - it just stays in 2-3 small 'balls'. Any ideas?

what good would shaking a PF jar do? its a cake and shaking it will only mess up the verm layer, right? I just couldnt imagine shaking my jars. With a jar of spawn i could understand shaking it. can someone clarify this for me?

First make sure your incubation temps are right. If that's ok and your set up is realtivly contam free then take the tap off of the holes. You may want to try that a few holes at a time and then let that go for a while. If it seems good take it off more holes.

Leave lids kinda lose and turn upside down. your problem is CO2 buildup in the jar bottom.LOOSEN AND FLIP.

Take in mind that I use only seeds (rice+millet+wheat) and no vermiculite. That's why shaking must help but still the mycaleum stays in those small 'balls'. I'll try turning them upside down. Any other ideas?

That's not PF TeK like you said on your 1st post, that's why people got confused when you said you shoke the jars.

Peace,

this is just plain bad advice.
shaking pf jars isn't going to help one bit, as the mycellia is firmly anchored to the cake and will not be moved by any amount of shaking.
that's for jars half-filled with grain, not pf cakes.
further more, the verm. at the top is meant to serve as a barrier/air filter. you should avoid moving/disturbing it until colonization is finished, least contams enter thru the needle holes and penetrate the verm. barrier, ruining your cakes.

you should only shake grain jars after the mycellia has spread quite a bit first, colonizing about 1/4 of the jar. that way, there are more colonized grains and it breaks up better, and spreads faster. you only need to shake them once or twice that way.
