Noccing With Agar.

41 posts in this topic

I'm making some no fail grain jars. I have some nice cloned myc on agar. I wanna try noccing a jar with it. How do i do it considering the berm in the bottom? How do I disperse the agar?

it doesnt matter what tek you use this is how you do it. tilt the jar until the grain falls to the side at an angle towards the top. put the wedge at the bottom of the slope and allow the grain spawn to fall back over it, pushing the wedge up against the glass under the spawn.

 

wait for it to colonize a quarter of the jar before shaking.

Awesome! So I shouldn't cut up the whole agar dish in little squares and put it all in? It's a first gen clone from a big fruit. Very rhizomorphic. It's something for me to do while I wait for me spores. Figured I'd make a dub and just see what happens. It was a huge fruit in a cluster with a small one and a couple aborts. Does that count as a cluster? I'm only doing one dub to see what happens.

no. just one decent sized wedge is more than enough inoculant for a quart jar.

What I don't understand is doing that, or g2g with the no-fail jars. How do you disperse it without disturbing the verm?

Why oxygen injection? Isn't co2 what you want? Faster growth, bigger fruits?

Makes sense to me. Get that fat pinset then cut it off. Cool!

i don't use verm in my jars.  while verm works really to help with moisture control in grain, you really should learn how to properly hydrate you grain, saves a lot of time and opens extra options for ya.  Good luck my friend

I wanna do that. How do you do it. I understand the hydrated, dry on the outside stuff. I know how it should come out. But how do you do it? What are the steps, if you don't mind.

When my jars are at 30% and I shake em, the verm is bone dry. Pure dry powder. I don't think it's hydrating my stuff. Probably drying it out. It's however I'm doing it. I've made real nice jars with no verm before, but it was a shit ton of work and time. I lost allot of wbs by over doing it. When I get it right, it's awesome. When I get it wrong, I shitcan 20 qts of wbs.

you can shake up the no fail jar if you are doing g2g. it colonizes much faster than ms.

 

i dont use verm in my wbs jars anymore either. same tek, just dont use the verm. I let them sit in the strain for about 10-20 min extra.

 

the spawn is properly hydrated if it colonizes. so what mt means is you should learn how to properly dry the grain, since it is hydrated from the 90 min soak.

 

MT also does not use wbs. different strokes different folks.

are you using strobes tek where he says to lay the spawn out and let it dry before adding to the jars? if so this is your issue. DO NOT lay the wbs out and let it dry.

I soak wbs for 24hour bring to a rageing boil for 20 mins then drain and wash it one last time to get any starches off the grain to prevent sticking together then I let drain for a hour jar it up pc for 90min gopd to go that what works for mei usualy stop boiling when it smells likeyou just cooked a huge batch of cream of wheat but about 20 mins if you look at seed some should be split open 40 % id say

ok so let it strain out longer, no verm. No laying it out on s fan and drying it. That was a real pain. Next time I'm gonna do the 90 min soak, strain for like 45-60, then load em up and pc. Cool!

      Went hiking with a old friend and found like 20 typles of different mushys in the forests.  I will also give my first cost a Rica print to who can name each type in the pictures according to my field guide.

      I suppose that ahoud be done in very sterile condition,right??? I now sclerotia is relatively easy to grow but getting the fruits is not so much. Poslano sa mog SM-A300FU koristeći Tapatalk

      Your vermiculite has to be field capacity before you add the grain spawn to it.  You can not just add x amount of water.  You need to add water...test it in your hand, then either add more water or more vermiculite until it is perfect.  The whole process pretty much hinges on having perfect field capacity.  The more off you are in either direction, wet or dry, the more complications you may have with your grow.   In this tek, under the substrate video, you will learn how to get field capacity.  This specificly starts around 3:50 in the video. After you put the foil on you leave the lid on the container.  DO NOT OPEN for 10 days under any circumstances.  You are trying to trap the Carbon Dioxide in to promote your spawn to run the substrate.  Fresh Oxygen at this stage will cause problems.  Once the time is up you remove the foil and then move it into fruiting conditions.
