Case + birdseed Question......
    #934975 - 10/05/02 07:02 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Right, so ive got about 30 BRF PF-tek jars coming along nicely.....
5 birthed a few days and growing nice and fuzzy....
and i was thinking about my next step....
these pf-cakes are fun and all, but they seem to be a bit of a pain in the ass....
id like to step up to birdseed and caseings....

but there are still a few points i need clarified...

first off....
grain to grain innoculation.....
so lets say i get a quart jar of birdseed fully colonized.....
instead of makeing spore prints i can just take a few grains from this quart jar and toss them into a bunch of prepaired grain jars, shake the fuckers up, and let them colonize right? (in a glovebox of course)
that seems so much easier than going through all the trouble of making prints/syringes.

2nd caseings humidity levels.....
ive read the faq a couple of times, and ive read people's posts, and i cant seem to get a definitive answer
saying im gonna use coir and verm......should i sterlize them first?
well anyways i wet them to field capacaty, case my birdseed, then place foil over and poke holes... (should this be done in my glovebox, or is that not nessicary?)
let them incubate, checking every few days and misting the caseing keeping it nice and moist.....

once its ready put it into my terrarium.... now what exactly should the humidity level be? ive read 70%-90%...... should i use perlite? cool-mist? handspraying? i have all 3..... id like the setup to be as automated as possible.... fresh air being supplied by a coolmist on a timer....

if im keeping my terrarium humid and the 02 fresh, how many times a day will i have to be there to mist the caseing?

thanks for your help....

to answer your questions. i have a better success rate with birdseed using pints rather than quarts. i split 1 colonized jar into 6 steralized jars via grain to grain in a glovebox. it usually takes about 10 days to fully colonize.
i pc my casing mix in mycobags befor applying. i do that in the open air, not in a glovebox. just make sure to clean and spray your room before doing it. i dont worry about the humidity. the casing takes care of that. just mist your casing whenever it looks dry.
hope that helps.

I've been trying to get my birdseed to colonize.....no luck...and no pressure cooker...you think thats why?? i steamed them for 3 hours, was real sanitary. I only made 2, but neither of them made it.

laterzzzz

I just use cottonballs, and I have had no problems. It provides air exchange,which helps jars colonize faster.
