JARS!!...TO FLIP or NOT TO FLIP?? * PIC *
    #2373679 - 02/23/04 11:22 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Ok...I just have a quick question regarding my first growth since my patience is wearing a bit thin...lol!! This is a pic of the best of my six jars that I innoculated just a bit over 3 weeks ago. I've read different ways to make the jars colonize faster, for instance turning the jars upside down. I've shaken them up on a couple of occassions, but I wanted to ask with regards to flipping.

I have my jars in a tub-in-tub incubation system, heated to about 83F. The lids are a bit loose and the holes are exposed underneath one layer of tin foil. Would it be wise to flip these suckers over or just wait it out?? Thanks for all of the help!!

Im not sure if flipping will help it any, but it wouldnt hurt. Flip it, then give the bottom a hard tap to loosen the substrate on the bottom of the jar. Also, next time you make jars dont put that much substrate in each jar. From the pic it looks like it is kind of packed in there. Leave like 3/4 of an inch of room from the lid of the jar so you can really shake the jars next time you innoc them. B

id remove the tin foil and yes, flip them. i recently flipped mine and colonization rocketed. if the cake doesnt slide down when you turn it over knock it around a few times. i think that space is critical to flipping.

I do have my jars within a bin that is covered with the top that came along with it. So, with that said, taking off the tin foil shouldn't be too much of a problem since I would think there wouldn't be any contams in the bin. Is that a feasible thought? Thanks!!

Your jars need air exchange!

Take the tin foil off... it should have been off right before innoculation. Make sure there is no tape covering those holes. Yes turn the jars upside down. You want more Co2 to excape and more oxygen to go in. Thats what turning the jars over does. The whole reason that your jars have only gotton that far in 3 weeks is because they didnt have enough O2.

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.

Fuck...alright, well I guess I took the wrong advice leaving the tin foil on. Anyhow, I just went into my incubator, beat the shit out of the jars to loosen up the substrate, took off the tin foil, and flipped them upside down. We'll see what happens...thanks for the advice!!

Nah, the foil doesn't hurt a thing. It's not airtight.
Flippin' 'em will help, with or without the foil.
