moisture content plays a big part in colonization times.

You can try unscrewing the jar lid, but not removing it. Just leave it loose. Seems to increase gas exchange.

Gremlins?

Without a little more info or some pics it's hard to tell.

My jars of WBS are sitting at a cool 66-68f and colonizing just fine :-D

If you want any real answers you'll need to go over your procedure in detail as well as your storage parameters.

Yeah, I think it could be a little cold in here.

I dont think its below 70degrees in here, but IDK ill get a thermometer tomorrow. I think I used enough LC. I PC'ed them.

I dk about water content, though. I soaked the seeds for 1-3 days. Boiled it first, etc..

I think the polyfill may be too tight..

I think I just need to try again..

The AT jars seem to be doing ok though.

Have you shaken them yet? If not I would do so about now.

Ive shaken them a few times.

my jars took about 3-4 days to show signs of myc growth.

Once it was growing on the sides of the tops of the jars, maybe like .5 inch spots of growth, I shook my jars in a circular motion to mix it in. When the myc was visible again I shook them again.

I just think they should be growing faster, especially since I used a LC.. I think there might be a contam in there growing where I cant see it maybe..

I already spotted green contam on all the jars I innoced with the OI syringe. So I know how to spot that.

Anyone got any extra big syringes for trade?

I think I need to start again, LoL.:facepalm:

There's your problem then.  Each time you shake them you stall out the growth for a day or two.  You only want to shake them once at around 40% colonization.

He's right, you should shake them only 2 times, once when you first put the lc in, then once it starts showing growth.

I usually shake when they look about like this:



Usually takes 5-10 days to get like that.
