How often is too often?
    #2321834 - 02/10/04 09:44 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I ussually check my colonizing jars at least 3 times a day, is this ok or too much?

I just dont want to get any contams, this is my first grow so im hoping it will be a good one!

Leave em in there for 1 week and don't check them at all. At 1 week, remove contaminated jars, leave for another week. Then, check again, remove any other contaminated jars, and see how far along they are. Likely you should wait one more week, at which point they will likely be ready if you have them at a good temperature (85 degrees no more).

Patience! If you handle them too much your chance of contams will go up greatly.

It's hard work to just leave 'em alone, but you'll get the hang of it.

I check once a day as a habit. I look in in a dim lit place about 20ft from lighting, closer if i see possible contams (none yet out of 3 jars + one casing. But the jars are WBS so i need to shake every few days. I guess i only need to check them out every 3 days or so but i like seeing progress. Man.. i think i have a problem... im going to cut back a bit and only look at them every other day from now on. :sweats: :P

Nah, if it's a problem, it's a pretty common one. Everyone starts out that way. It's pretty exciting stuff, afer all. But it'll wear off after a while.

It's actually good to guage the rate of growth you can expect with your particular setup, and then you'll know how often you need to look in on 'em.

It really is best not to handle 'em too much, though. And do so with clean hands when you must.

Don't be afraid to check 'em in the light either. It won't hurt anything.

Was it that crazy giant shroom growing sideways along the perlite floor?

wonder if it would be possible to setup some kind of camera to watch them constantly. i realize you cant have light but maybe some other type like an infrared or nightvision camera... that would be pretty cool.... could do like a sped up shot to show the whole colonization.

probably pretty expensive though for a camera capable of something like that :/

Anno did something similar. He recorded a fruiting tray from the start of pins to the end of the flush and then speeded it up. It must be somewhere here at the shroomery. I guess you could do a search in the grow log forum.
