I picked up a bag of cracked corn.I soaked over night,rinced,and filled the jars like normal.After pressure cooking and cooling it clumped up.I tried gypsum but it did'nt help.Next i used some paper litter to break the clumps up.That worked so i saw how fast the mycelium coloinized the cracked corn,much faster then rye,millet,wheat.The next thing i tried was replacing the paper litter with popcorn.The popcorn worked just as good at breaking up the clumps,plus it has nutrients the paper does'nt.The last thing i tried was after rincing for hours i put the corn in a pillow case and hung it up like straw.After hanging for 24hours,or until the pillow case looked dry.I broke the clumps up with my hand then filled the jars.After pressure cooking and cooling the jars shook like normal grain.The point is that the corn needs to be washed a shitload and then left to dry for 24hours.Smaller jars break up on their own,but quarts needed to be mixed with something like popcorn to keep it from sticking.

i'd say both left jars show signs of excessively slow growth, note how thick the mycellia has become, how it's pilling up at the edges. that's a sure sign that it's not spredding like it should. my guess is that cracked corn proly releases a bit more starch than one really wants and it's the starchy residue on the grains that is slowing growth. they really should be fully colonized at 2 weeks or very close to it.

Well one really needs to take great care when straining the corn until all that residue is gone.

I wouldnt call 2 weeks extremely slow. Maybe not optimal but Id say 2 weeks to full colonization is pretty damn good for a first time.
You dont really get perfect jars till the 2nd - 3rd time.
