Nope
I'll let Anno explain this one...he's much better at it than me.

I did a test...I left 4 jars out...not sterilized.
Within 2 to 3 days they got contaminated.

Do what you want!
I wouldn't do it!

load up the jars minus the water.. just add the water before you sterilize.

Why didn't you just wait till you had a day to do it all at once? That makes a lot more sense to me. The best thing you can do is be patient and take your time when cultivating mushrooms. Don't rush or half-ass anything. The whole process already takes a good amount of time. Why set yourself back with a mistake when you can just do it the right way the first time? I always take my time and I am yet to have a contamination problem.

"I did a test...I left 4 jars out...not sterilized.

i would have thought if you left them in a cold place they shouldnt go bad in 2-3 days. were they hot? were there very obvious signs of mould.

>I'll let Anno explain this one...he's much better at it than me.

Hmmm...

The best method is to prepare the jars, and PC right away.

If you leave the substrate non.sterilized, it will eventually contaminate.

The time until it actually visibly  and smellibly :wink: contaminates will depend on many, many factors: the temperature, the kind of substrate, the amoount of contaminats in your room, grain, vermiculite, tools, the kind of those cpontaminats....

It can take 3 days, but it can take only 12 hours, depends.

A sterilization(as we perform it) is never complete.
There is always a certain percentage of contaminants that survives.

The more contaminants there are initially, the more will survive the sterilization process.


The second reason why this is bad, is that the contaminants produce all sorts of potentially hazardous substances. Even if you PC the jars and manage to kill the contaminants completely, the substances will still remain in the substrate and might eventually end up in your shrooms.

this would be especially important when growing sclerotia
