Almost a month, nothing yet...
    #2478351 - 03/27/04 05:18 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)


I started my first attempt at the pf-tek on the 1st March, 6 jars with Matias Romero spores. I followed the pf-tek as best I could using a standard kitchen pan instead of a pressure cooker for sterilization. In the FAQ it says "Give it at least a week before you worry, and at least 2 weeks before you panic." So as you can imagine at close to 4 weeks I've just about given up hope! The jars are in the dark at approx 68 degrees and 52 humidity apparently. They look quite dry, any chance they're TOO dry?? I know this has probably been covered, my apologies if it has for my inability to find it on the boards here.

Any thoughts??

they need to be incubated at 82-85F. 68F is much to cold.

yes even at 68 degrees they woulda started by now. Like you said you prolly didnt use enough water and/or weak spore solution or you forgot to shake the syringe before hand. All possibilities

If you followed the pftek as close as you could, then you shouldn't have a problem with the moisture contant, shaking the syringe before is not too important in my opinion, I dont think thats the problem here.

Just give it another shot and incubate at at least 80F.

randomly you can get bunk spores, depends on how the spores were stored, etc.

You sterilized in a pan?? Or do you mean a pot with a lid?
