Ready to birth? pics
    #8833212 - 08/27/08 12:11 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

My cake had stopped growing, and then I took the foil off the lid and decreased the temp (it's puerto rico, so I thought it liked higher temp but I guess not!) and it begun colonizing again.

Pics below show exactly what it looks like now. Except you can't see that it has moisture droplets all over the outside of the mycelium. The mycelium that is there looks pretty strong, though it is not complete. Should I keep waiting?

Help is greatly appreciated!

How long has it been? Ive had cakes keep going for over a month and a half before they were fully colonized. Use a thin point sharpy and outline the area where you think it has stopped growing. Let it be for a few days and then check the outline. If after 3 or 4 days you see no more growth chances are it has stalled out.

if it has, indeed, 'stalled out', is it still good to birth? or has it gone "bad" and can it not be used to grow the shrooms?

Ya you can still use it...several options. First I'd try to outline and check growth. I recently posted a thread about first grow with wbs. In there are some pics of a jar i thought stalled with an outline. Thte growth you will see came about within the last week or so.

If they are stalled birth them in an extremely clean environment. From the looks of the jar it isnt apparent whether or not you have a layer of dry verm up top. If thats the case, plus combining the fact the whole cake hasnt colonized, contams will have a field day if given the opportunity.

One choice is cut off the uncolonized substrate then dunk. Do some research, there have been several posts lately that have numerous answers to this question.

What're your temps at? ALso, you could always just cut out the uncolnized part and make a mini casing?

To answer your question, no. Do not birth yet.  Wait till everything is white except the dry verm layer, and after that wait 3-4 days then dunk and roll it, then birth.  You'll get more shrooms, faster if you wait, and it won't contaminate.
