OK..so i cooked up some karo water last night...took it out the PC and it looked clear...good sign...so this morning..i put some B+ spores into the jar...how long does it usually take before i start to see mycelium..i read a couple tek's about karo..but they dont seem like they are all that accurate...

im basically looking for personal experience on this one...thanks

ill be keeping the jars in my incubator..stirring up the water a little bit every day to keep the top water fresh.. thanks

It'll probably take like a week to grow -- you should see signs of germination in like 5 days or so, if you look carefully -- it should be fully grown in like 7-10.

If you inoculate with mycelium it should be done in about 5 days.

2.5-5 days for me are the min and max times in my experience...I put broken glass in the jar before pc'ing and swirl it to chop up myc in order to "draw it up" more readily.

You should be shaking the jars every day to dissolve air into the media.

I get germination in 2-5 days and by 2 weeks it cover the bottm of the jar and 1/3 way up the jar. thats when I put em in the fridge for use. and make sure to add like .1-.5cc's of h202 AFTER all the spore germinates. this really makes em take off.
