Mycellium has stopped growing.
    #1615753 - 06/06/03 11:48 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I am only a beginner, have yet to have a successful batch. However, one of my jars has what looks to be healthy mycellium, and no contams, but it has stopped growing and it is only about 65-70% colonised, it hasnt grown for a while now. Why is this? could it be the cooler weather affecting it.

And also, i had a jar that didnt do anything for atleast 6 weeks, then all of a sudden it started to colonise. Any explanations?

You'll need to provide more information for a definitive answer, such as the tek you used, your incubation situation, air exchange etc. etc..

The best advice I can offer with what you gave is remove the tape from your inoculation holes and/or loosen the lid a tad.

I used the PF tek. And the jars have been sitting under my drawers, nice and dark place. The temperature where i live has also dropped a fair bit from when they were first innoculated. Going to try lossening the tape on the holes, see what that does.

my guess is humidity, there should be visible humidity on the sides of your fruiting chamber.

during incubation the jars should be kept in 80-84 degrees

only thing i can think of is possibly flipping the jars and tapping the cake down off the bottom..

or flipping them upside down for a bit.. (co2 release/air exchange)

then again, you may be doing this already and i not knowing it

in my dogs experience, a styro cooler works at even fairly drafty room temperatures (70-75), the jars will eventually colonize fully

and once again in my dogs experience, he can suspend (and possibly kill?) mycellium growth with complete lack of o2 to substate/sealed jar)

I agree with dysphoria on the flipping idea. Afoaf always does this at about 60% and it seems to help compared to before he flipped.
