got a ? about my bud's jars. got 7 total(1 control). Been incubating @ or near 85 for 5 says now and all are showing nice mycelium growth - except the control, obviously  :cool:

anyway, some are colonizing stronger than others and that could be due to a few factors, but what he is seeing is that on of his wetter jars (crammed a bit more substrate in there as it was left over) is probably the slowest. He took a piece of tape of one of the inoc. holes tonight to see if that would help dissipate some moisture and speed up the growth. Good assumption on his part?

He has read on numerous posts the ideas of leaving the tape completely off after inoculation and opposing ideas of waiting until jars are 20%-30% colonized, etc.

Ultimately, faster colonization of his jars would be ideal but he would just like to keep them all around the same pace and he is a bit concerned about loosing that wet one.

TIA

Yeah, taking the tape off was smooth.

You shouldn't need the tape -- just incubate the jars in somewhat clean, still air with the dry vermiculite top. Wetter substrate will colonize more slowly, but it's a good idea to have a good amount of water in there if you're growing cakes. Just stay within the recipe.

my bud appreciates the coments. he used the calculator on the one and only shroomery.org to mix the substrate and it seemed a bit too dry IHHO, so he added a touch more H20 (he can't leave well enough alone). Other than that the PF tek was followed to the "T".

He's a virgin to this so removing the tape from all his jars worries him a bit... contams and all...even with the dry verm layer.

oh, thanks for not siccing the search Nazi's on my bud!  :lol:
