Is there a way to spread myc in a pf jar?
    #2454956 - 03/20/04 06:01 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

My jars have been incubating for like a month and a half now... this is just too bloody long. Some jars are nearly a third colonized, most of them have a few spots. None of them smell and they seem to have a good moisture level. They are upside down with open holes and the pf verm layer, and they are sitting on a grill so there IS gas exchange.

With grain you can shake the jar to spread the myc and help it out, is there a similar way to spread myc in a pf jar? Opening these things in my house is just ASKING for contam.

just make sure your not packing in the brf/verm and that you have mid 80's incubating temp...it makes a world of a difference.

What temperature are you incubating at, and what strain are you using?

B+, not totally sure of temp, but it feels like low-mid 80's (don't hate me cuz i'm cheap).

The substrate is not packed.

And just so you know anything that I say i'm doing right is just a judgement call cuz i've never done this before.

No way of mixin this stuff up, eh?

You should get a cheap thermometer, you can get a good one for around a buck.  That way you can keep a steady desirable temp.  86 is awesome :smile:

There should be holes on your jar as well that are NOT covered. Your shit needs O2, so that could be the problem if the wholes on your jars are covered. A month and a half is a very long time.

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.

From your posts, I gather your temps are in the low 80s, and your jars have open injection holes for O2 exchange.

"hmmm" Well, from your description they should be growing in fine. Here's a couple ideas...

Was the BFF amd verm mix well? That's kinda a silly question, but I thought I would throw that out there.

Does it seem like the fuzz has gaps in the growth? Were the myc grew around an area in the jar, but left an unfinished patch? If so, you might have a bacterial contam.

Well it doesn't really help now, but next time you might try this...

the myc is all growing concentrically from where it started. There are no gaps in any jar's myc. When turned over and the holes opened up it began growing for a couple days, then stopped, or at least slowed rediculously.

Would it be stupid to try the oven tek and simply open it and mix it up gently with a sterile knife or something? I wouldn't want to simply destroy it, but if it keeps going at this rate, it may fail anyway.
