PF jars? Dont pack in the substrate too tight and don't let it get too wet. Or use more spores.

Grain/WBS jars? You can shake about every 3 days or so after you inoculate. My friend shook just after inoculation and once at 3 days, and the quart jars colonized fully in 11 days (faster than his 1/2 pint PF jars, still colonizing after 18 days).

These tips are of course among a million other variables that you can work with.

I know people that sometimes put just a sprinkle of dry vermiculite in the bottom of the jar to allow the underside of the cake to colonize faster. I haven't tried it but it sounds feasible. As houshroom said there are a million other variables you can work with.

Make sure you have a good theromometer... a FOAF had an old one and found it was 7 degrees off (too Hot)....when he replacced it (digital).....the growth was amazing...
Before 1/3 colonized over 14-18 days.....Temp 87-90 degrees F
After 90- 95% over the next 14 days.....80-82 degrees F
