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)?

Do it! (the grow, not sure about lime.)

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
