i can see the myc growing in there, they look good and normal so far. yes you want the needle to get below the verm barier so it gets to the sub not get the verm wet as a dry barrier is what keeps the contaminations out. good luck.

Swim's jars are about 60% colonized now and will post some pics soon.

Once fully colonized he plans on removing the verm barrier and flipping upside down and using some sort of spacer. He will probabably just roll some aluminum foil into a ball for the spacer after he has cleaned it with bleach water.

How does this sound to you guys?
Any tips on the spacer?

He is open for any suggestions and thanks you:bow:

So here are a few pics of the beauty growing oh so quickly. This is day 7 and it looks like they are about 60-70% colonized. I missed a hole on 2 of the jars so they are running a little behind, but all jars are coming along nicely.

Does anyone have any advice on the spacers once verm barrier is removed? I was thinking of having my FOAF lower the temperature once they fully colonize and are flipped to around 72 F. What do you all think? :heart::bow:

for spacers, i think i read that someone was using pop bottle tops and the invitro tek said that they were using a piece of pvc pipe sawed to the right depth. looking good though.

Day 10: 100% in three of the six jars. They are going invitro so Swim will be removing the dry vermiculite tomorrow and flipping onto their lids. The other three are 80% and should be fully colonized in 2 to 3 days. They have been growing very fast. The jars seem plenty moist, so he doesn't think he will dunk til after the first flush.

Couple of questions for you guys:

1. Should he just remove verm and flip all of the jars or wait on the last three?

2. How does 72F sound for fruiting invitro?

3. How "clean" does Swim need to be when removing the vermiculite, any extra precautions to note? (I don't have a glove box)

4. Is a dunk in order?

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

:bow::bow::bow:


Pics 1-3 are of fully colinized jars. Pic 4 is of a jar that is 80% (I missed 1 innoculation hole) It has the largest uncolonized spot of all of the jars, but at this pace should be colonized in 2-3 days.

just be as clean as possible, wash hands ect. the temps sound fine. i dont know about dunking, you could. looking back on how my first cakes turned out i probably would dunk. even with the misting and dec they were pretty dry near the end.

Once all your cakes are finished I'd go ahead and dunk for 12-24 hours - the extra moisture and cold shock should help initiate pinning and give you some fat fruits. I'd recommend waiting for all of your cakes to finish before proceeding.
