Birthing when not fully colonized?
    #669921 - 06/09/02 01:22 PM (15 years, 22 days ago)

Hey,

This is my first cultivation attempt. I have 4 jars, one of them seems almost ready, may be 90% colonized, while the others are 70-80%. My problem is that I would like to have some shrooms ready in 7-8 days, I think this is barely the time it will take to fruit so I'd need to birth them, or at least one of them, right now.

Give me your advices, do you think I have a chance to have some shrooms ready in a week or should I give them the time to fully colonize and fruit?

I think everyone would like their shrooms to grow faster so they can eat them quicker. But I think that you should wait. First of all they may have trouble pinning and even if they do the shrooms may not be as large because of the lack of mycelium and its weak network. Also, you will probably only get one flush before your cakes get contams....there will be plenty of uncolonized substrate for them to grow on.

Sometimes a cake will not fully colo0nize because there may be a wet spot at the bottom. Those you can birth right away.

But if your cake is fine, then I suggest you let it fully colonize.

Patience young Jedi, patience.
