How many times do you look at your jars?
    #1672554 - 06/30/03 12:16 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Ok, so now that my kitten has some colonization going on, (the PR's are kicking ass over the South Africans for some reason)  she is wondering if she is harming the mycelium by peeking in her incubator and picking up the jars 1-2 times a day.  She knows that she would be better off just leaving them alone...but wants to check up on every tiny bit of progress. 

So how often does everyone check up on their incubating jars?  Every few days?  Every day?  Three times a day?  :grin:

Like atleast once a day but ive moved them from on top of the computer monitor to a non-air conditooned room inside of a sub box...Is full conolonization possible after only 2 weeks? Does everybody let them sit inside a lil longer even if there all white?

Take a marker and outline where it has grown, so you can see the progress :smile:

Looking directly at half colonized jars can make you go blind.

Yeah. Use the marker trick, but you should try to get involved in some other stuff. A watched pot never boils, that is a truism for all time and is especially applicable to mushroom cultivation. You should pick up playing guitar so that you have something to do.

You're not harming them per se...but each time you open your incubator you're allow more contams to get in and possibly get after your cakes.  You should always make a habit of spraying with Lysol over/around the incubator before opening it...I would also spray lightly over the incubator before closing it.  You really only need to check up on the jars every few days...if your cakes stall or you want to flip the jars...do so only when necessary.

I know it's exciting during the beginning and you want to "witness" the creation...but the less you open your incubator...the better off you are and the happier the mycellium will be.  :smile:

Love & Light,

Boppity
