SPEEEDING COLONIZATIO N
    #1469890 - 04/18/03 12:08 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

High
My jars are about 80% colonized, but this took more than 1 month !
Other peoples jars get colonized much faster, what should I improve ?
I placed my jars in a shelf where its totally dark ( where are the alcohol bottles ). Its enough hot there ( probably 25 C ) . Peace, Thanks in advance :laugh:

strain, temperature, air and water content of the substrate are the variables here.

if you want fast colonization of PF jars, get an aggressive strain, make a nice airy substrate with proper water levels, and incubate at optimum temps (83-86 degrees F).

  My friend had a huge problem with slow growth in pf's for a long time. H :smile:e finally realized that the verm he was using was way to fine and had to find a different supplier for more course verm . Wich totally sucked because he had a 25 pound bag of the wrong shit! I dont know if thats your problem but its something to be considered.

you might be packing your substrate too tight. you should just let it fall in(not in chunks) and do not press it down.

hehe.........JunoCycle started six jars of F+ at the same time...2 of them were colonized in about two and half weeks to colonize. The otheres took a montha and a half. They were alll kept in the same conditions.. go figure... Also, JunoCycle has come to the conclusion that smaller jars(amount of substrate) has nothing to do with the colonization period...Juno used 4 oz jars instead of 8oz jars once... and it took over a month for those to colonize as well.

Volume of substrate definately has something to do with colonization time.
