I am cleaning out my jars and tubs after another year hiatus. I’ve got some LC that has been sitting in a cold dark closet for a year. It is still clear and the mycelium are still suspended. What do y’all think, good to go? Starting a thread bc I will undoubtably have more questions as the grow continues. Thanks all.

Clear and no off colors I'd think it could work.

I see no visual reason why you shouldn't at least try. In a recent post I got great results from a very old LC that had much less growth.

Go for it! And good luck, too!

I would suggest trying to put a drop on some agar, before jumping to jars. Stir it up and take up like a ml or 2.  See how it grows ?

 

Can't wait to see if "IT'S ALIIIVE!!" :)

 

Do you know which cube it is ?

A couple CCs is enough. If your grain is on the dry side you can go really heavy, though. I like using about 5 or 6cc and shake the crap out of the jar to distribute. Unlike spore solution, more LC does equal faster colonization, to a point.

However, put too much so the grain can't absorb the extra moisture, it will get soggy and go bacterial.

Should I add a bit of pickling lime to my substrate (1:1 coir and manure)?

Yes, add 3/8 tsp. of lime to each quart of CCM

I’ve been recently using LC’s I made in Sept. 2017, and they are colonizing grains and substrates and fruiting just fine

If you do not mind me asking, what did you do to prep such a liquid culture? Considering it seems to hold up well, it would be awesome to know how the lc was prepared and try to replicate it myself. Been trying to decide on a recipe.

Of course I don't mind you asking. I will have to look up the specifics.. Boil potatoes and strain using coffee filters to get the starchy water and add corn syrup. PC for 30 min ! Easy

Seems like a pretty normal prep haha, I guess you've just got the blue thumb. What was it inoculated with if you remember?

That tub is  came from Mazatapec spores to LC! I used wharfs coffee tek for the sub :) 

 

The other two tubs I have are a little slower. Those are B+ with a simple coir/manure sub

Are they the same composition? Mine ate usually somewhere between those. Two. Assuming they're the same, and healthy, I bet the one on the left pins first. The one on the right I'd scrape and case, but that's just me, not necessarily good advice.
