How often do you check your JARS?
    #2132227 - 11/24/03 12:41 PM (14 years, 21 days ago)

I find myself giving into temptation and checking them every 2 days. Is this going to slow down colonization? Does anyone else fall victim to this lack of will power?

my friend checks his about the same, sometimes even more, not really checking but opening the incubator the get something else out. I don't know what effets this has on the jars, although it can let contams in easier. peace

i shouldn't but i check mine ike every day.the more you check them the more you increase you risk of contams,i.e. light, the new air going in, your hands, stuff like that

checking your jars shouldn't raise the risk of contams as there should be some type of filter between your substrate and the outside world.

When I first started I went crazy I if I didn't look at my jars at least twice a day. Now I let them go a week at a time without looking.

use a tyvek filter, this will help with any contams that could get in your jars when you are looking at them.

In the excitement of my first grow I completely forgot about the 11 one-pint jars I had inoculated a little over a week before. It was a great feeling opening up my incubator and having 11 fully colonized jars the very first time I checked.

Im still interested in weather or not light would effect the speed of growth. I think an experiment is in order here. There are a lot of variables but Ill let you know the results

I am an erratic checker... I must stress the importance that you DO NOT let the jars know when you're gonna check 'em---if they figure out your schedule your fucked... contams for sure. The myc will just give up. They'll be like.. "aww shit it's been 2 days.. motherfucker's gonna be peakin in again... I quit... I can't take the stress... all this light...staring and examining every fucking 2 days... fuck this--i'm out yo... hey green mold.. yeah you takeover dawg" and then you're all like.."shit."

i haven't had a jar not go green for awhile!!!!! why!!! everytime i think its gonna go good.. BAM! green. one time i checked my jar and it was clean of green.. 2 days after that, huge patch! why! i had to BUY msuhroms ahwile ago, but i even made use of that, i saved my baggies, and grew some myc in honey jars.. then put that into PF jars, they were going so good, i was stoked cause i thought i would have grown some unknown mushroom strain from an empty baggy! but they went green one by one...

I'd have to agree with littlejohn -- of course the more you fuck with them the higher risk for contamination. Spontaneous generation was proven wrong way back in the days of Pasteur -- we now know organisms come from somewhere. The idea is to leave them alone as much as you can.

It's still important to check them, though, so you aren't breeding contaminants, but when dealing with jars I like to keep it to like once a week or once every 5 days.

I don't care about checking bags because they're sterile -- nothing can get in and nothing can get out, if they're sealed properly.
