I was about to go loco on Sporeworks since it was taking sooooo damn long for my jars to colonize. I went out of town for about 5 days and when I came back, I could see some whiteness starting to protrude out from the center of the jar. This happened after 2 weeks of waiting!! And they are still not near complete. How long does it usually take once they begin to colonize?? Also, should I shake them or do anything to speed up the process now that it has started?? Thanks gang!!

As you know from reading im sure there are many causes for this. From the substrate is packed to tightly to there is to much water in the mix. There is a plethora of things that could have caused this, was this your first grow? Youre situation is not that unusual, try searching for more reasons for this to happen.

Your temperature could be too hot or too cold. If spores are viable, it shouldn't matter which vendor you used.

First time growers usually take longer to cultivate their first batch than any other grow thereafter.

The only things you can do to speed them up are make sure they are at the proper incubating temp. To cold is better than too hot. You can also, flip them on their lids. The jars can breathe can't they?
