slow growth
    #2416411 - 03/10/04 08:29 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hello all,
I am currently on my second grow and this grow is taking longer for the 1/2 pint jars to fully colonize. I stated this grow on feb. 4th and the jars are only about 3/4 of the way done. The strain is Koh Samui and are in a cooler with a heater keeping it at about 82. Should this be taking this long? My first grow was done in about a month and then put into the terriaum. Any suggestion on what I could do to speed this up?
Thank You!!

Shake your jars! also try raising the heat up a lil bit to 86, perhaps turning them upside down will help? Do have any type of a filter on the lids or are do you just have a couple holes punched in?

Don't tough the jars yet.....raise the heat and see what happens.

The bus came by and I got on that's when it all began!

try loosening the lids a bit if they've stalled and don't look too dry... shaking might up your chances of contaming if you're doing pf, since you're disturbing the atrophic zone of vermiculite
