Drying out
    #679630 - 06/15/02 06:48 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

I'm attempting to grow mushrooms for the first time. I made the substrate with correct ingredients and put it into 1/2 pint jars. However, by the time that was done it was 3 am so I waited to sterilize the next day. I used a pretty fine grade of verm and I was wondering if the jars might dry out overnight, and if so, what does that mean. Any help is appreciated.

they shouldnt dry out over night. if your paranoid put the aluminum foil on to prevent even further air exchange.

No thats ok if you kept the lids on. I've done that before with no problems.

It's way too early to tell. I made the substrates on Friday(14) and only sterilized and innoculated on Saturday(15). I'll probably upload pics in the picture section so people can watch its growth and point out goods/bads.

you should see colonization in a few days after inculation. i normally sterlize my jars, then wait and inculate the day after to let them site. i would imagine it wouldnt dry out, 1 time i had some jars i inculated with a dud syringe, it never colonized, but keep much water in them for weeks. and they smelled like shit too!
peace
