avg. spore germination time
    #1458643 - 04/14/03 11:35 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I inncoulated one 1/2pt jar that had BRF/Verm/water on 4-10-03, and was wondering whats the avg time it takes for the spores to germinate an to see any signs of mycelium growth in the jars. I have not checked it in two days but im really not wanting to bother it, after all i have the Tempeture perfect now after changing the aqurium heater settings two different times and finnaly got it to 84F in the incubater, the first day and half i had it around 88F, 90F. So i know that didn't help any. Also one other question, lets say that the spores where already contaminated would that possible stop them from germinating and being able to feed off the BRF and grow?

Peace, dp

2 - 5 days is "average" time under optimal conditions.

You know what has got me thinking and some what worried is that when i sterilized the jar with the substrate in it of course, i set it in a pot of water and not in a basket to steam it instead, off the bottom of the pot. I boiled the water and then turned it on low set the jar down in the pot and steamed it for over an hour.

Hope that didn't vaporate out most of the water content in the substrate, i have read that teknek does work though, so im just setting on edge.
