Long Germination
    #1291490 - 02/08/03 06:17 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

i have about 12 1/2 pint that have germinated *Booya* and about 30 that havent, the temp is in the 80s, its been i think 2 weeks, and i was wondering, if i hadn't injected near the edge of the jar would they still germinate? I think i injected about 1 cm inwards instead of on the glass, will it just take longer to see?

that's a possibility...but my jars are usually almost 100% colonized by two weeks. if there is no sign of contams i would reinoculate. i've done this on jars that didn't germ. and everything worked out ok. if you used up all your spore solution then take a chunk of myc. from a colonizing cake and put it in a sterilized blender with sterile water and use that for your go juice.

yeah, just inject more spores. don't need to resterilize. although some people will tell you it's a good idea to, i recommend the lazy route...i think you can get away with it

If I were you I would just start over with the jars that didn't colonize yet. It could be a number of reasons why they didn't colonize. Moisture could be the problem. If it is, then it wouldn't matter if you innoculated them again or not. you still wouldn't have healthy growth due to the lack of moisture in the substrate. Just start over and resterilize everything. Thats what I would do.
