No mycelium growing in jars
    #2271797 - 01/25/04 03:59 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I started 12 PF-TEK jars back on January 13th and no signs of growth are showing, but I think there may be some problems...heres what I did...I took 12 jars and mixed the vermiculite,brf, and water all together and then put it in the jars(1/2 pint)...After that I took a pan and put 2 inches of water in it and waited for it to boil, then I put the jars in there and stacked them for 1 hour...After that I took them out and made 2 holes on the jar lids and after I had injected the cc's into the jar I put a coffee filter over the jar and used a rubberband to secure them.. At first they were in a area that was too cold(60-65 degrees tops) for a week, I then put them in a drawer which the room is 72 degrees and added a towel around it(i know this doesnt do a temp difference, but it was for the darkness) and it has been in that drawer and I just checked them today and No signs yet...First grow so I am just scared, but I guess it hasn't been that long either(kinda impatient at first, I think you guys understand that heh), but hopefully the mycelium will grow eventually....im limited to options due to parents, but any advice would be appreciated....thanks everyone

Maybe many many things...

1) what was the % of BRF / verm / water? Maybe you've been putting
not that much BRF (nutriment) and the mycelium is making a hard work
to grow; or maybe you put too much water, either;
2)where did you get the syringe? A good source is almost needed :wink:
3) 60 / 65 degrees?? Too low... either with 72 ? the jars will take
a long long time to get fully colonized... Organize your-self to
make an incubator or something.

As there are no signs of colonization, I would not say that the
problem shouldn't be a contam. Reflect about these points:
SUBSTRATE - SYRINGE - TEMPERATURE

and good luck :smile:
