Waiting after full colonization

Recommended Posts

PickledPiper

I have waited 7-10 days after full colonization was noticed when doing cakes as this is what the Teks suggest. Is this required when colonizing WBS? I have 5 quarts going, after the shake they exploded and colonized fast then I would have ever imagined. 5 days after the shake they are 100%. Should I wait another 7-10 days like with cakes or are they ready to spawn to bulk Now? Is there any benefit or draw back to either waiting or spawning now? Few photos of the progression, before the shake, a day after the shake and now.

I don't wait extra time for grain. With cakes, you should wait the extra time so the myc can colonize the center of the substrate. With grain jars, you're supposed to shake the jars at 20%. The shake spreads colonized grains all throughout the jar, guaranteeing that the entire jar is colonized as well as the grain against the jar is.

Did you shake those jars?

I did shake them, It was incredible the way they took off and finished colonizing the jar in less then half the time they took to get to the 20/30% mark. Thanks for the quick responses. I will spawn them then. I am a bit nervous as this is my first attempt with bulk and really do not want to mess this up. I have 10- 6quart tubs I plan to do dub tubs. I am still unsure of the sub I am going to use. I will do some more reading tonight and make a decision. I might try a couple different Teks and see what I can do. I have bought several different ingredients to chose from. Just no hpoo, it has been to wet and cold to go get some from the neighbors. I will take notes and photos and attempt to put together a grow log. I can't say it enough. Thank you guys and everyone on this site for the free exchange of knowledge, and the words or wisdom and encouragemt I see everyday. It is really amazing the community that exists here. More to come

How did your cakes do?   I know just how you feel about staring bulk.   I want to but feel I need for cake experience for now.   Good luck.

The cakes did pretty good. Just finished the 2nd flush. Dunked and rolled again to see if they have anything left. I am into the bulk grow now and am starting to see pins on all 5 tubs. I plan on putting together a log if all goes well.

Please put a log together!   I'll learn from you in real time!   I may go 6 qt tubs this weekend after reading this.
