6 weeks is a long time. Does it look like the myc. growth has stopped or just growing slowly?

wow thats really slow. But it is no big deal once they hit a true 100 percent wait about 5 days then birth. It shouldnt hurt yields or fruiting actully I think it helps. Your slowness could have been caused by many factors like temp or air exchange. I leave jar lids tight the whole time and take tape off after 2 weeks, did you do this? Also what has caused me slow growth and im sure some other people too is packing your mix too tight or using the fine smaller type verm that many Lowes sell. That leaves little room for the myc to move and breath. But its no big deal it just makes the final product that much more .......... special!

so can I just wait for them to colonize fully or should I birth them even if there some what not colonized say around 85 to 90%. IT is myc its white to light brown and smells like fresh mushrooms. all so I packed the jars tight as instructed in the pf teck. I've done this before and never took this long? All so should I wait for pineing to start in the jar or go ahead and birth when there 100% colonized thanks for the help!!!

well if they are taking that long to colonize, I would dunk/cold shock(after 100% colonized) them before you start pinning the cakes you should see signs with in a few days.

Go to www.fungifun.org and use that TEK. I would be willing to put money on packing substrate/incorrect water content in your jars. If you do a PF jar right you can get it to colonize in 12 days using Anno's TEK at www.fungifun.org =). I can't quite get 12 days, but I have a jar that is maybe 40% at about 6 days from innoculation.
