???1st time grow...need help
    #2609619 - 04/28/04 01:55 AM (14 years, 29 days ago)

this is my friend's 1st timing growing. he's got 6 jars that have been colonizing at 84-85 deg. for over 7 weeks. 2 of them have developed pins already in total darkness, without the whole substrate even colonizing. some of the pins are growing right next to where the substrate is uncolonized. he birthed them straight into a dunking container today. should he try removing the uncolonized substrate and just try fruiting from there, or just say fuck it and start an outdoor bed? any suggestions welcome... just need some help

You should have removed the uncolonized substrate prior to dunking. If they haven't been dunked long, it might be wise to remove that substrate now... hell, even if they've been dunked for a while, remove it.

Did you tape the holes on the jars? If so, you should have removed that tape. Did you flip the jars? If you didn't, you should have. Flipping the jars helps vent co2 and creates some space for oxygen in those uncolonized areas.

Best of luck

If you don't remove that uncolonized substrate those jars are done for.  :eek:
