Yes, this is my very first grow and I owe my success (so far) to this site and it's members.  If you remember, I'm the one that had the problems with the jars not fully colonizing.  During that stage, I posted pics of all 6 jars and was told by some to discard them if they did not continue to colonize.  However, I chose to take matters into my own hands :smile:

I took all of the jars, sterilized my hands and whatnot, then forced those puppies out of the jars.  I then removed as much of the excess substrate I could with my hands, crumbled 3 bags of 2 cakes each, then cased in 3 containers with verm/coir.

I then had an issue thinking my casings were contamed since they were somewhat of a blue tint.  Again, some told me to discard them, but I waited it out and here I am now :smile:  YEE-HAWWWWWWWW!!! :smile:  Keeping my fingers crossed!!

Oh...and one more question I do have. I have read conflicting issues with some people saying that misting the casings at this stage would cause them to abort. I also read where Anno said that was not true.

SO, which is it?? I have been misting/fanning about 4-5 times throughout the day and night and been giving them plenty of sunlight. Should I only mist the chamber now and not disturb the casings?? Thanks again!!

Cool, so this is a casing of not fully colonized cakes? And its pinning with no contams so far? Never cased a not fully colonized cake before, but i hear its contam prone....GJ keepin it clean!

I remember your old post now....when my jars would stop growing, id pull the tape and flip them...and smack them lightley to dislodge the cake...now i use tyvek...

Did you use tyvek,tape, or what on the jars?

I'm not sure what happened.  I know I was SUPER CLEAN in every process during the whole beginning to colonization stages, but for some reason my jars just didn't want to fully colonize.  Not to say it wasn't colonized that much, but just not fully.

I removed the tape as I put them into my incubator initially.  Later, I did flip them and the bottoms colonized completely, but just portions on the side didn't.  I think it was mainly due to too much moisture and also spaces where substrate didn't fill up the entire jar (I left some space).

When I did pull the out with my hands and all, they smelled like good mushrooms would...no stinky sour or sweet smell.  So, I really don't know how I did it, but I took a shot and I'm ASSUMING things are working out lol :smile:

Misting per say isn't a problem, it's excessive misting that causes aborts. Problems arise if water droplets form on the hyphal knots or on the pins, but a sensible misting program is fine. If visible water droplets form on the casing, ease up a little. It's just common sense really.
