incubation problems
    #1062079 - 11/18/02 11:34 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Its been 22 days a little over 3 weeks since innoculation, and only 4 of my 10 pf jars have shown growth. The 4 are almost ready for fruiting, and i dont know whether to throw the 7 jars out of keep ahold of them. my incu temps are around 85-90F. but these temps have only been constant for the last week. before that they where flux'ng from 60 during the day and mid 80's at night. Should i give them some more time?

I believe that your incubation temps should be more along the lines of 82-85.  Someone has also told me to take into account that the jars during colonization produce their own heat (about 2 degrees) so take that into account.  If there are no signs of contamination I would let them be for a little while longer.  Are the jars dry?  Maybe they need a little sterile water.  I have heard of this problem with myco bags a couple of times.  I'm not the most experienced, but there is my two cents. :smile:

never throw jars away unless you are completely sure they are contamed. you just need to BE PATIENT.

Thanks for your help guys...but isnt 3 weeks a little long for no signs of growth?
I will lower the temps a few degrees and see what happens. Also if all else fails can i re-innoculate the remaining 7 jars with fresh spores?

you might as well just redo everything instead of re-innoculating. good luck whatever you choose
