What to do?
    #2386766 - 02/28/04 04:20 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Im on my 4th day since Innoculation and have seen no progress on any jars. I have tape over my innoc holes and someone said to take it off. However, I have no dry layer of vermic above the substrate, its all one thing. When inspecting my jars, I saw one had white and red markings around the innoc holes on the tape. What should I do, leave the tape on, or take it off.
Thanks,
P2K1 :mushroom2:

keep it on for now...when you start to see healty white growth you may want to loosen the lids, but till then they should be fine. Keep the incubator temp around 84-86, just give them time. do you have any pics of the red markings?

Hey,
Just an idea....I agree that you should be patient and let the mycelium start to grow, but after growth starts, maybe try and put some cotton in the holes of the jar to allow some air exchange while reducing the chance of contams. I've never tried this, just an idea. Does anyone else have any ideas, or reasons why this would or would not work?

You could take the tape off and then put aluminum foil over the lids of the jars. That always worked well for me.

Ill see if I can get some pics on the digicam in a bit. For the temperature, the jars are inside the original box, covered with newspaper, inside a rubbermaid, inside my closet. The jars are still cold to the touch. My room is leaning closer to the warm side then the cold right now. Is that good enough temperature?

The best temperature for ps. cubensis is 80-85 degrees Farenheit.  If your room were that warm, it wouldn't be warm, it would be very hot.  The benefits of having the ideal temperature all stem from the main effect, germination takes place quicker from spores, and mycelia grows faster.  This lowers the time before your little fruits pop up, lowers your contamination rate, and increases your odds :smile:  It's worth it to rig something up to keep them 80-85F

Im angry. First the metal lids were reflecting the camera, then the micro wasn?t working, and then finally I couldn?t get any focus. The pictures were just a big blur. Out of anger I opened 1 of the 2 jars with the red at the top. Zero development. Nadda. Bubcus. The red was a bubble in the needle hole. Im quite certain now that it was the spores, a friend of mine also got the same spores from the same store and his jars have shown nothing after 3 weeks. Im very angry because the syringes were $30 canadian and ive been wasting my time. Also, my karo tek from the remaining 3ccs of that syringe show no development either. What should I do now?

Hmm, might want to contact the vendor about that. What temps are the things at?
