why wont it grow there???
    #937796 - 10/06/02 11:10 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

ok all of my cakes are pretty much fully colonized except for one. one cake has fully colonized on one side of the jar but not the other, i had left it for around 4 days or so and checked it again today and there still dosnt seem to be any mycelium growing in this one area. theres no discoloration on it or anything so i doubt its anything to do with contam...just wondering why this is happening and if i should just toss the cake or just keep on letting it colonize?
thanks.

It might not be growing because it was over-cooked there (or under cooked?) It might work if you just cut out that section of the cake and case it... Hope everything works out for you!

Although you do not see any signs of contams, they may still be present. I have had this happen where a jar colonised half-way down the jar and then just stalled for about a week, then I started seeing little white dots about a centimeter in diameter, that grew and turned, Ta Da, green. Booooooo. So my guess is that you have an unseen contam. I think you should seperate that jar from the rest and see what happens.

It could be a dryness problem. If your going to case it, it's ok if it's not complete colonized, it will colonize when it's cased. If you are going to grow the mushrooms off the cakes, you can take it out early, but it'll take longer for the dry cake to produce shrooms because it has to colonize first.

If you take an uncolonised cake out of the jar and put it in the terrarium without scraping off the uncolonised part, you will grow green before you grow shrooms 9 out of 10 times, and I'm almost certain it be 10 out of 10.

ok well i dont really know what to do now, i was about to isolate the jar but when i looked at it the mycelium seemed to be growing around the area where it hadnt been growing, so i guess ill just leave it a bit longer and be sure to check it a bit more often just to make sure it dosnt get contam'ed.

Be sure you have some air exchange (loosen lid if necessary) and flip jar if you haven't already. This has helped me speed up slow sides before. No guarantees, but sometimes it works.

Issolate the cake from the others , it may be contaminated . It may also be you birthed way to soon , but why chance spoliing the others .
Issolation .............or to the curb !
Good Luck
