water floating in the jars during colonization
    #959249 - 10/14/02 09:05 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Hey,

I have a question about my pf jars. I checked this morning and the colonization is nearing the end, but now there is (what appears to be) a good amount of water moving about between the jar and the mycellium. Is this going to be a problem? I know that I will end up dunking the fuckers in water before birthing, but I wanted to make sure this wont foul the finishing touches of colonization.

thx
jfi

Water droplets between glass and cake is normal , especially towards the end of colonization , but if "SWIMMING" you got to much water in mix , play with recipe get a better balance of wet/dry . Excessive water could lead to contams , loosen lids(not open) a little this may help release some moisture .
Good Luck

I was exagerrating a bit when i said "floating"

what i meant is that between the cakes and the glass, the water droplets have joined to create a sheet of water that travels around the jar as i inspect it... understand?

I guess its not that its soaked, just excessive sweating or something.

thx

It is okay if just droplets , and they are not yellow . :cool:
A sheet of water could be a bit excessive , play with water to dry ratios next time ( a tad bit less next time ) .  :wink:

A little water as you described is not uncommon, at the end of the cycle some
times waste is discreted and may appear yellowish. However try to keep excess
water to minimum as it will increase your % for contams. Hope this was helpful. :grin:

its probably okee, dont worry :smile:

just think: if the mycelium is eatin' the substrate, it must have some products of this dinner, dont you think? lets say its a kind of piss and it may look yellowish but dont think of it as a nasty thing. its normal. thats life. a cycle. a wood is being burnt and smoke comes out. you cant help it :wink:

if there is much of that "water" then probably either your substrate was too moist or your mycelium was very hungry :wink:

cool. good luck my friend!

Thanks too all who replied.

Makes me feel a bit better :P

I had no clue that mycellia, though, secreted a urine or something similar.. although now that i think of it, it makes perfect sense. :smile: thanks for that tidbit of knowledge.

By the way... I have been reading on the dunking tek...my question is...is it good to dunk before birthing the cakes?  And should i wait for pinners to show before dunking?

:wink:
