PF TEK please RATE my PROGRESS, any suggestions?
    #1071326 - 11/20/02 06:44 PM (21 years, 3 months ago)

This is my first time growing, ive used the pf tek method with brown rice vermiculate and half pint containers instructions perfectly and i used mazatapec mexican strain of p cubensis. Its been 10 days exactly the last 2 days 2 jars showed sign of white growth. 1 jar has a dime size circle of it where it was injected the other jar has a clear ghost like white film over 75% of the jar im keeping the temp 80 to 84 are things going normal? WHY IS THERE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN THE JARS GROWTH RATE? ANY SUGGESTION IS A Good Suggestion?

maybe your substrate wasn't mixed thoroughly.

if it's clear, it might be bacteria...
does it have any odors?

if the ghost like growth is slightly grey and wispy, you most likely have cobweb mold.
The rest sound cool.

I had a jar with that ghost like growth. It turned out to be a pink contam. I'd say that one is a lost cause. Keep an eye on it.

If that jar is that questionable, you could open and smell it, anything other than pleasant mushromy odor means it's contaminated. It's not uncommon for the jars to colonize at somewhat different rates, such that some will reach their birthday a few days or more ahead of others (at least that's my experience so far).

Take a journey through the contamination forum. You'll learn a lot in there.

Is the temperature uniform throughout your incubator? If there are cold spots, the jars in those areas would grow more slowly. The jar with the "ghost like white film" sounds like contamination.  :frown:
