Cracked Jars
    #1852083 - 08/26/03 06:32 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Hi,

Five days ago i innoculated 10 jars witht eh treasure coast strain. The previous night I had prepared the jars with the standard brown rice flour and vermiculite recipee found in the pf tek. I boiled the jars in a large bot for an hour and 15 minutes and then let them cool for about 6-7 hours overnight. In the morning I took the foil off (and subsequently left it off) that was protecting the innoculation holes from getting water in them, and injected each jar with about 1cc of spore solution. Temperature in the cabinet is 75f (I know its a bit low, but from what I read it should still work). So far I haven't noticed any mycelium growth at all, and today I noticed that the bottoms of my jars were all cracked.

My questions are these:
How in the hell did my jars get cracked on the bottom, I thought maybe while I steamed/boiled them but I realize now that they weren't when I pulled them out.

Will this cracks affect the growth of the mycelium? Is this why I haven't seen any growth so far, or is that because my temperature are a bit on the low side? (I read that I should see growth after three days)

I hope I'm just being paranoid, but this is my first shroom grow and I really hope I really don't want to fuck it up.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Peace.

I would think as long as the cracks don't let contamination through you can still be fine. Just don't pick them up so they won't fall apart. Get a tube of superglue and run a bead along the crack while rotating the jar slowly. Let dry for a few minutes, and they should hold together until they can colonize.

Don't know if it will work, but you have nothing to loose. It sure beats having to throw them away!!

well about the crack try putting a cloth on the bottom of the jars, so they dont directly touch the pot. im on my second attempt at growing and ive learned alot more.its getting alot easier. good luck next time.

Oh yea im not sayin you did this but, never take the hot jars and place em in a cool place. always let them cool in room temp.

NEVER USE CRACKED JARS

if they have cracks in them toss them out

Thanks for the tips.

Um I did boil them for an hour and 15....as my first post says....

So am I just being realy paranoid about the lack of growth thus far?
