Spawn Too Dry?

Recommended Posts

bluecollarirons

3rd time trying to post this.. Hope if works this time..

 

My lowdown>

 

Liquid culture colonized with south american.

 

WBS and rye cleaned and soaked in hot water for 2-3 hours. 1/16 hole in metal lid, tyvec on top of lid with high temp gasket maker on the tyvec. Pressure cooked at 15psi for 15 min.

 

My question is how dry can the spawn get? It seems dry to me but this is my first time doing this tek. I usually do verm/BRF cakes.

soaked in.. cold water or hot?

 

I dont think thats enough time for rye, and you might be better off using one or the other and following a specific grain spawn tek for that grain.

Soak 24 hours for WBS to? I always for  boil water and pour over and cover bucket for about 1. maybe 2 hours tops.

 

But we all can agree that its , PC 15 PSI for 90 mins or more.

i see a lot of contamination in your future bulk grows.

Thanks for getting back to me guys.. Soak longer, got it.. As for 90 min thats way over kill and unnecessary.  . The only contamination thats gonna affect a grow is mold and fungus. There is no mild or fungus that u would need to worry about that lives in that high of temp and pressure for more than 3 or 4 min. No household mold is an extreamaphile. These things grow outdoors where there is tons of mold and contams..People don't realize how hot those jars get and how fast. I have been doing BRF for years and have never once had a contam problem. I always go 15 min. The let cool over night. There is still pressure and heat in the pot about 2 hours after u turn the burner off. Those jars heat through and through and get more than hot enough. 90 min is a waste of time. U can run another 3 pot fulls at that point.. Just fyi

Thanks for the tips..

      The 3 Matias Romero cakes have finished their first flush and they all did great I wish I’d taken more photos Fruits are drying now in the dehydrator. Here’s one cake-

      Don’t panic. Your jars will be fine. You can actually wait till they show pins in the jar to birth them , if you have no idea when they’ve finished up.

      Those halogen lights are hot af. Are you sure it didn’t get too hot and dry out and kill the mycelium? I think anything in the mid 90’s+ can be heading for big trouble, but I’m not certain . But it still doesn’t look close to being ready to put in fruiting conditions, and has likely stalled a long time ago It shouldn’t take 3 weeks to colonize that tub though. It could be contaminated beneath the surface too. Im thinking it has just stalled out, it’s junk after almost 5 weeks, and I would start over. But maybe someone else will chime in with another idea  Sorry man, my deepest condolences.  Get a couple syringes from Source of Spores. Get some Pennington’s Wild Bird Seed from the super center,Composted cow manure and Coarse vermiculite to start , and you’re in business. Follow a tek closely,in our Bulk Grow forum for sure fire success.

      Yeah I incubated it for about 3 weeks by placing entire tub in 2 black trash bags and used halogen shop lights to maintain temp. l forgot the casing layer😬, what to do now? These are Burma strain from non-sponsor vendor, I wasted the azurescens sadly, they never even colonized the presterilized grain I paid neary 35 bucks on, they just all mushy and slimy 🤕🤧

      Wow those are awesome looking!   Blue!   Are those APE.  Had to look it up.  PE is next on my list.   What got me started on this was some Mexican but couldn't tell you if the were cubensis or cyanescens.  But it was great!   Let us know your feeling on potency comparison.
