Slow growth
    #1307269 - 02/14/03 06:28 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

I've got a couple of jars that I innoculated a few weeks back and they are about 85% colonized and dont seem to be growing anymore. Can someone help me?

Well, first question would be: Is your incubator up in the mid 80's?

You really didn't give us any information on your setup :smile:

Sorry for the lack of info. I have 2 rubbermaids stacked with water in the bottom and a fish tank heater. Temperature is stable at 83 degrees. They grew real fast until about 85% and then stopped.

I'd have to say it's the old air exchange problem. My suggestion is to remove the tape on the jars, if you put any on. If you don't have tape, and your inoculation holes are not obstructed, I would suggest flipping the jars upside down; this allows the CO2 buildup to escape from the bottom of the jars. Hope I helped you out!!
