You could try injecting sterile water into them, but you will be taking a huge chance at introducing contams. Do your jars smell? Usually when growth stops its either from your jars drying out, over cooked substrate, or a contam.

if there is a decent amount of growth, you can cut off the uncolonized part and use that

well you could have replied to your own post. So how many % is it colonized? just give a rough estimate on how much is uncolonized. Just look on the outside.

your best bet is to birth it now and put it in a terrarium. There's going to be a big risk of a contam, but I don't think you have any other options.

Skikid or whatever your name is, this question is for you, although I'm sure someone else could also answer. I'm new, so bear with me. How are you supposed to smell your jars?!? Does this mean taking the lid off and smelling through the vermiculite layer or what?? I'm asking cause I have a possible cobweb contam.

Peace

I don't really advise smelling your jars cause it can be harmful, but if you do have a contam, sometimes it can be easily detected just by taking a few sniffs from above the inoculation holes.

Its supposed to smell like mushrooms, I know that doesn't help, but thats the only way I know how to describe it. I've heard others say it has a very subtle, earthy smell.
