Pint jars taking 2 Months to colonize? Help pls
    #1291600 - 02/08/03 07:05 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I Inoculated 5 pint jars on December 4th and they are still only like 50-80% done. I inoculated another 5 a few weeks later with honey water and they are also now 50-80% done. Most of the jars are about half way some are near 80% done. My temps have been high 70s low 80s my heater has a hard time keeping the incubator at 85. Is there anything I can do to speed this up this is my first grow and its not going well. I bought the jars pre made from spore haven they showed signs of growth fast but they just died out and are moving very slow if at all. Any Ideas?

My guess is that you had to much water in the jar and thats the reason for the slow germanation. I encountered the same problem my first time growing. Try turning the jars upside down to let the excess water filter down. Good luck shroomie friend

If they don't end up colonizing, I would advise you to make your own jars up next time. It always seems to work better and faster if you do it yourself.  :wink:
