I innoculated these bitches AUGUST 11th! Out of 6 jars I saw absolutely no growth whatsoever but i decided to hold on to them anyway, i happened to notice a patch on one of them out of the corner of my eye today and it surprised the hell out of me. Only 2 of the 6 have any growth. I thought the spores i bought were garbage, i was ready to re-inject them with a different strain. Shows that patience pays off.

the black is marker i would imagine...but those cakes look EXTREMLY wet, which would account for slower colonization.

yes i think that's your problem man too wet you could try to suck some water with a sterile syringe but this could be risky about contams

yes that is marker. They didn't seem too wet to me, the mixture had only a little water on the bottom of the bowl. In the jars there's no visible water on the bottom or anything. But you guys probably know better than i do, this was my first attempt at PF. Will they fully colonize do you think? maybe in another month or so?

My last batch of PF looked about like that. If you feel that the water was right on then it could be that you packed it in the jar to tight. That's what happened to me. It has taken 4 times the time for colonization.

You should not have any water in the bottom of your bowl when you mix.
Did you follow the recipe ? 60 ml of water per jar.

The mix should not 'stick' to the jar's glass like it does.
There should be some space between the glass and the mix.

I don't think it will colonize completely.
You can wait but I suggest you throw them and you begin a new batch with less water.

yeah...and no packing, you want the mixture as fluffy as possible to allow for air exchange and easy colonization of substrate by the mycellium.

I used 1/4 cup of water per jar, same as what the calculator says. I think i did pack it down too much, i tapped the jars on my hand after each scoop of mixture. If they do fully colonize wouldn't they have more fruiting potential with all the mycelium building up in there? If they don't fully colonize i might just case them or something. It kinda sucks because i did all these jars before i moved out of my old house and the place im living now is pretty dirty, its hard to keep contams out of everything, including my food. I recently did another batch of PF and they all contamed...

hmm maybe just slow spores cause I usually shake after every couple of scoops I put in a jar so theres no air pockets which is similar to what you did

there is way too much water in the jars take that alluminum foil off and take the tape off if you haven't already. 2 cups verm 1 cups bron rice flour one cup water makes 4 1/2 pints:) don't get discouraged try it again.

Yeah those jars look like they're filled with mud. If you really don't want to get rid of them flip them over so they can drain like another guy said. It will take along time to colonize though that mix is so wet. Remember: 1 part BRF, 1 part water. 2 parts verm.
