Jars never made it ...?
    #1304889 - 02/13/03 08:01 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hey folks, I'm hoping someone here could help this guy Bob I know from rehab.
He's trying to grow Tapalpa, and has 5 jars started. Everything was going well until about 4 weeks ago when all the jars just up and stopped growing. All but one of the jars are almost finished and Bob thought they were going to finish just fine, but all of the sudden "Poof" no new growth in all these weeks sence.
The jars have been going for about 2 months, at 80 degrees F. (It's amazing what a stranger from rehab will tell you :tongue:)

Any ideas as to what Bob's problem is? As far as Bob knows, he did everything right. Can anything be salvaged? :confused:

Well ask Bob if he has his jars closed up tight, if so tell bob to take the tape off the holes he used to inject to allow gas exchange. The verm will keep out contams, but you can put a coffee filter over the jar with a rubberband.

Consider as a possibility, the jars could have ran out of water. I have heard that if not enough water was added or if in sterilization, the jars lost some of their water, the mycelium will stop growing when it has no more to use.
I don't know your addicted friend's situation, but have him consider it as a possibility.
(i don't even know why i look this information up, it is useless since it is illegal to grow here and i don't grow. oh yeah, i'm going to Europe soon, and i'll grow there, so i am just studying now. that's it.)

Yo Bob hehe

If the jars seem a little dry add some honey water, Just enough to moisten it up.

HOT water n add the honey, mix, cover and let cool. Then inject into jars with a clean syringe.

If still moist in there do the air exchange thing. Loosen the lids, take off the tape covering holes off. Also could try turning the jars upside down.

I use filters under the lids of my jars. 4 holes in the lid and one taped that was used for injection. Works great.

Cool. Bob says thanks for the feedback.....

BTW, Bob asks, "Do you sterilize the filters in anyway, or do you just put them on right out of the box?"
