Am I too late? mycelium not showin much
    #2268113 - 01/24/04 01:45 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I have had my PF-tek half pint jars for more than a month now and there is only about a 1" by 1" patch of myxelium (the white fuzzy stuff) and it hasnt improved for weeks.

I didnt make an incubator because I thought it wouldnt need one because it would be warm enough.

So can I save them? for instantce build an incubator right now or something else? 

My jars have looked like this for about 3 weeks now with no improvements........what should I do? :confused:

it may be growing on the inside and u dont get to see it. i would build an incubator just because they are great and speed everything up tremendously.

keep it in a warm spot that isnt >88F or build an incubator. it may just be growing extremely slow because its cold. but not enough moisture would stop it, along with a ton of other reasons. good luck

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

Your jars should be ok with out an incubator, but it is very helpfull in speeding colonization. try searching for "tub in tub" it's a good design. Or put em on your hot water heater or some place warm.

I would expect this if the temp was below 75F. Even with a small spore load this should have expanded further. However this has also slowed any contamination.

Can your jars breathe? Are there holes in the lid, or is the lid just sealed?

i have the metal lids w/ 4 holes poked in it, with tinfoil over it.

I am only growin 2 1/2 pints right now, so I can get the feel before i use the rest of my shrooms.

one is a puerto rican, it is the one still goin. the other is/was a hammond, it got contaminated.

well, where should i put them until i get an incubator? moist/dry place? dark/light?

currently the jar is in my desk drawer. occasionally i shine a desk lamp directly on it

Didnt you read anything about this hobby before starting it?

Put your jars in a dark place at temps in the mid 80's.

And I would suggest you do some reading before going any further or your last jar will be going down the same path as did your first.
