jars at a standstill
    #1623075 - 06/10/03 06:35 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Using full pint jars w/Birdseed, innoculated with Pink Buffalo spores, my jars have exhibited no further growth in the past week.
They were innoculated 3 weeks ago and I've already lost 4 out of the 6 to the green stuff.
One jar is about 85% and the other about 40%. Should I try to birth them and cut away the uncolonized part of the cake?
This was my first attempt - I sure have learned a lot!

Flip them. They've probably run out of air, and flipping them lets the heavier CO2 get out from the bottom. You can also try making the holes bigger (if they're small now). After you've done this, if they still don't show any new growth in a few days, birth them an cut out uncolonized substrate.

i think u need to be a bit more experienced to do so.

if there is no bad smelling and nothing else to be seen inside apart from healthy mycelium and still-left-to-be-eaten substrate, then there is a chance
that by flipping the jars u can force continuation of the process. sometimes myc just stops like that. zillions of reasons why this could happen, but one thing is for sure. something is not quite right. perhaps the myc is at the moment fighting with some kind of contaminant, probably the same one that stroke your other jars.

uh i hope everything will turn out to be cool - good luck! :smile:

Thanks to both of you for the responses. The jars are so packed that I don't see hardly any room on the top. I don't think they'll get any air.
Yes, it's been disappointing, but I've learned so much throughout the process that I feel confident that the next batch will be successful.
The next batch will follow the PK method, BRF in 1/2 pints made by yours truly instead of ordered.
Thanks for the encouragement and wisdom!

i have had the same problem, 2 of my jars stopped growing. I have losened the foil on top and added a poor mans humidifier ( container with hot water in it, placed into the draw with my jars) i think the mycellium is on the move again.
