First grow; a few mistakes, but mild success *so far*
    #11213450 - 10/09/09 08:09 AM (8 years, 11 months ago)

Say I inoculated 7 jars about 4 weeks ago, but in my careful procedure I accidentally murdered the spores by inoculating about 30 minutes after steam-sterilizing them. Out of 28 inoc points, only 4 survived, all in different jars. Say since then I'd lost two to green mold. These cakes would be taking forever to fully colonize. My question arises that one if one was about 90% colonized and the other was about 80% and the 90% one already has a pin growing down the side of the cake about an inch long, what should I do? Should I ignore this and let the process carry out until 100% in both, or pull them out, clean off the un-colonized substrate and dunk and roll?
2 cakes... weak first time.

next time wait until the jars have cooled properly, honestly whats the rush.

www.mushroomvideos.com watch the pf tek videos and follow that exactly.

If your jars have got pins before full colinisation, somethings not right. Pinning  never usually happens until the mycelium cant colinise anymore, either the substrate is too wet/compacted or colinised by something else.

the ones that are still colinising should be left, make sure your not cutting off gas exchange by leaving the foil lids tightly on (whcih are only to stop water getting in your jars during sterilisation) those foil lids can be taken of complelty so your inoc holes are exposed.

The 1 with the pin i would birth that and remove the uncolinised portion.
