more likely they need air. untape the holes and flip the jars.

52 half pints? damn...

get a pressure cooker, and move up to grain.

yea, go with grain

My first attempt was with 12 1/2pint brf/verm cakes. I innoculated in mid december, and about 8 were ready about mid february. I still have 3 jars only 50% colonized.

On the 7th of this month, I innoculated 5 pint jars full of rye. Today, it's the 17th, and they're all at about 95-100% colonized. 10 days beats a 2 months in my books.

It sounds like the guy is looking at larger scale, considering he made 52 jars. Tell him to shell out a few bucks on a PC, get some rye or other grain (my popcorn experiment seems to be working great as well), and get cookin'! Cakes are great for the first time grower, as they give one some experience in the basics of mushroom growing, but to really get anywhere, cased grain seems to be the way to go (of course, it's only the next step. Once I get my hands on some poo, the real fun's gonna start :] )

Oh yea, mushmaster's right. When I flipped my cake jars, and loosened the lids, the growth rate seemed to speed up on them. I think it's best to only do this with jars that are near full colonization, as it does open up a possibility for contamination. Although, this is speculation on my part (mixed with what I've read on the subject), as I have yet to have a contam so far (which, if you saw my place, seems like a bloody miracle).
