i shot up 72 jars on september 29. its 13 days later and only 27 out of the 72 jars have shown progress. and the progress on most of them is pretty significant. a few of the jars will be done in the next day or 2.

but im sitting here with 45 fucking jars that arent doing. they arent contaminated. i sterilized the needle before inoculating every jar. i shook the syringe frequently.... but nothing has popped up on these jars!!! dammit!!!

what the hell should i do? what if i tried shooting them up again? it would kind of be nice to get them out of the way if they arent going to do anything.

I normally wait 30 days minimum before I open a PF jars that I believe to be improperly sporulated, or just not starting. The reason for this is I have had jars start anywhere from day 27 to day 32.

If I have a bad feeling I will keep a close eye on them from day 12 on, and then finally open them on day 30. Maybe even sooner if any contam shows up in a jar that has not started to show signs of mycelium growth. But that's why you keep a closer eye on the jars that have yet to start.

Your jumping the gun.

I'd knock them up again... cant hurt anything as long as your sterile. The longer you wait, the more your cakes will dry out.
