Am I just paranoid?
    #2327083 - 02/12/04 03:46 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Well, it's been 6 days since innoculation and i'm seeing nothing. I know that this is a slow process, but i'm using an apparent "super strain" (P.C. Thai Koh Samui Super Strain, http://www.thehawkseye.com/) and i thought that after 5 days i would at least see something, even if it was contamination. Am i just being paranoid about this? Another thing, i've gotten conflicting reports about what temperature i should be putting the jars at. One tek says 70 is optimal, and another says it's 80 or above for this stage. If anyone has worked with this strain, or I guess Cubensis in general, any help would be appreciated. :mushroom2:

temps in the low 80's is nice but thay will grow in the low 70's just a little slower and the time to see the fisrt growth is alot longer. is this your first time because some times at 6 days the growth is so small it will blend into the rice so well it takes a trained eye to find it. in your jars their shold be a tunnel made by the syringe, look directly at the bottom of this tunnel, examine it under good light and see if theirs a small inconspicuous collony there. the hawks eye is great so i dont thinks the spores were bad.

I wouldn't panic yet dude. Lets run a quick check list....

Where your spores fresh?
Did you let your jars completely cool before injecting them?
Have they been in total darkness?

The temp you want for growth in the jars is between 80-86 degrees F.
After you birth your jars, drop the temp to 70-75 F.

If you've been keeping the temps low in your incubator (below 80 F.), the jars growth slows way down till things warm up. Likewise, don't let the temps get over 86 degrees F. or growth will also slow quite a bit.
