longest colonization period, EVER.
    #934350 - 10/05/02 11:16 AM (21 years, 7 months ago)

Hey everyone,

I have 5 jars of PF and Indian strains colonizing for the past 5-6 weeks now. They havent even gotten halfway done. There are HUGE white areas in the jars, but they have either slowed to unnoticable growth, or they have stopped all together. I read thru the faq about temps and why they might be slowed/stopped. but im not sure that i have foudn the answer. Is 74/75 too low a temp for them? I used a very smalll amt when innoculating.... like 1 cc per jar hole. For the longest time they didnt show any growth, then they started colonizing, and well.. now they arent.

Maybe I should crumble/case? If so, might someone explain the tek to me? or point me in the right direction?

thx

well....have you tried raising the temp a tad? maybe to the low 80's....also have you tried flipping your cakes?

Actually, I just moved one of the cakes to the top of my computer, and flipped it upside down. I will leave it for a few days and monitor its growth.

thx... any other ideas?

Make sure moiture content is good, and allow for air exchange. if the mycelium can't get air, it cant grow

I do have masking tape over my jar holes... You think that might have caused a depletion of oxygen and slowed mycellium growth?

I will make sure to remove the tape when i get home and flip the cakes over.

any other suggestions?



thx

Yes, masking tape with inhibit the growth. If there is masking tape on the holes then the jars cant get rid of enough Co2. Also, I noticed wth one of my jars once that too much moisture will stop growth for sure.

I wouldnt think that 1cc per jar hole is to little.
Ive used 1cc per jar, and had colonization take only 2 weeks.

:confused:

1 cc of solution per hole is a HUGE amount in my opinion (but I'm sure it would work fine). When I am trying to conserve solution, I use just a drop or two per hole; just enough to confirm there is indeed a drop of moisture coming from the syringe. I am able to do approximately 30 4-holed jars with this method, and I would say 97% percent of sites innoculated form mycelium in 3-4 days. These are clear syringes purchased from a vendor as well; no spores visible to the naked eye.

However, if I have solution to spare, I will use more per site to speed colinization time.
