Upside-down jars in incubator colonize faster???
    #722870 - 07/04/02 04:29 PM (21 years, 9 months ago)

Hey everybody!

I have 3 jars that are having alot of trouble colonizing the very bottom. I have heard that if you place the jars upside-down inthe incubator it speeds/helps the botton colonize, is this true? What else can be done to speed bottom colonization?

I've heard about that also. But mycelium will colonize everything possible if given enought time, you know?

Remove the tape from the holes to get some air exchange and then flip your jars. It increases your chance of contamination, sucking in dirty air, but its worth the risk I guess.

As froz said, If you flip the jar over the co2 will fall to the bottom and out the holes creating a vacum that will suck in new air, Pros: brings in new o2 which will help in colinization Cons: New air can bring in contams. All depends on your situation, if you have only been waiting 1 or 2 weeks wait another over 3 go for it just make sure to be clean Drac

I'm done with drugs and growing mushrooms forever, or at least until the current drug laws change, its not worth the risk to me. Thank you for your information that you have provided me shroomery, but I will not be using it. Thanks Moe for deleting my posts, Good bye all, and have great lives. -merk227

The dry layer will HELP keep contaims out, but it's not 100%. Depends on how risky you want to be.
