Groth rate, and jar question
    #1018288 - 11/03/02 02:00 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Hello all this is my first post but not my first time at the site, i have read many FAQ'a on cultivation. And i have read that it takes up to 2 weeks before any sighns of groth, I have resenntly inaculated 2 jars anbout 10 days ago. I folloed all prep. work for the substrate to the last letter. There are no sighns of contamination, or is it looking to dry. My question is i see NO change what so ever in eather jars. There are some clumps of substrate that appear to have a whiteish coving on them, but the rest of the jar shows nothing. The temp in witch they are stored is 80 to 83. Could a high water consentration be stunting the groth???

and now part 2. Me not being a good long term planer relized AFTER i had injected the spores in the the jars that 2 of them were not wide mouth, there for i can not slide the cakes out when they finish. Can i transplant the substrate to different jars, or is it to late. and how am i going to get the cakes out when they are finished.


Thank you in advance,

ME

No offence but if you read it can take 14 days to show any sign and its 10 days gone and youre seeing some mycelia, what are you worrying about? Probably just very slow germinating, I would start to worry in a week or so if you see no sign, the whitish stuff is a good sign, temp seems about right, are you keeping it in the dark? How big is the patch? About the jar, youre probably going to have to crack it open when its colonized or something.

You could use the two small mouth jars in a casing. Just spoon them out when they are fully colonized, and case.

The growth will start from wherever your innoculation points were and you squirted the spores.

Do you have any idea how long that sucka is gonna take to colonize (assuming it germinates) I had a quart jar, PF style, and it took like 2 months.

I HAVE JSUT FOUND SOME GROUTH, IM BEAMING WITH JOY!!!! and i was thinking about the timethatit is going to take to colonize. is it posable to take some of it out and place it in anothe jar???? like ifi build a HEPA box or something to that?? or i could always wait. and i do have other NORMAL sized jars that are already showing sighns of groth .... OHHHH and i read the PF tek and it was talking about a lose or tight lid acording to mostiureee content. 2 parter if the lid is lose cant bacteria or other contam. get in. and if it is tight there can be no gas change. what should i do??

I usually just leave the inoculation holes un taped. I put a coffee filter on my jars just for added protection (don't know how much it actually helps, but it doesn't hurt, so why not?) As for transfering substrate, thats a negative ghostrider. I mean its possible, but just make some new substrate in smaller jars. Take the big jar and put it in a warm dark place and forget about it.

watch the growth.
Something that big, if not kept in proper conditions can contam rather easily.
So keep them eyes opened.

It can be hard to distiguish between a contam and mycelium in the early stages of growth. A while back I had some BRF cakes inoculated with cambos, when it first started showing growth I though for sure every one of my jars had cobweb. I was so pissed, I was gonna email Hawk and bitch him out, but then over time, it became less "cloudy" and more mycelium-like. So I'd say wait it out. If it starts to form "veins" then its mycelium.
