First Time Growing Worries
    #1410659 - 03/26/03 07:55 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

It's my first time growing shrooms, and i'm growing Puerto Rican strain in 4 of those pre sterilized growing bags. (The ones with the foam disc, rye grain, and the white filter patch.)

I know that i'm probably paranoid, but after injecting 2 cc's into each bag, nothing has happened in about a week. I dont expect it to show any signs of growth for about another 2 weeks, but i'm just getting anxious that i somehow messed it up. (Seeing as how the spores plus those bags are damned expensive.)

Could someone tell me the general timeframe for when i should first see a sign of colonization?

You may have gotten bad spores :frown:

Don't be so sure that he's doomed.
The first time i grew i thought that my spores were dead (i injected spores without letting the jars cool and then didnt see growth for 2 weeks), but i waited (a bit more than 2 weeks) and eventually one germinated and totally colonized.
I got a nice 30 gram mutant shroom from that cake....

could be the temperature you're incubating at, poorly mixed substrate, lack of moisture...Lots of things can slow down germination, but you'll probably still get SOMETHING eventually.
