first time grower needing help
    #1367641 - 03/12/03 03:10 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

It has been about 3.5 wks. now, and i used the brown rice flour/vermiculite method and i am growing the B+ strain. I have about 60 pint jars that have been colonizing during this period of 3 wks. and they are only about 15 % colonized. I live in northern VA where the temperature is very cold, could this be a cause? ive been using a heating pad for a day or two now along with blankets but no change (although its only been a few days) my friend said after i inoculated the jars i put tape over the holes, which didnt give enough air to my jars, so i replaced them yesterday by taking off the tape and putting a coffee filter on top of the lid. Of the 60 jars, 50 of them only have one hole, and inoculated one spot only, the other 10 jars are 1/2 cc of sprores in 2 holes. Is there any way i can speed this process up because i think they should be done by now? please help, thanks

Low temperature, big jars , bad air exchange and lack of inoculate(only 1 inoculation point) contibute to the slow speed.

The only thing you can really change now is to get the temperature to 80?Fto 85?F.

Next time use smaller jars, 4 holes and an incubator from the start.

Get a thermometer and achieve those temperatures.
Btw, why did you decide to inoculate only in one spot, where did you read it ?
