Hello guys and gals, how are these looking to you?
    #27289543 - 05/01/21 09:34 PM (5 days, 11 hours ago)

Hello Fellow Mycologists! I used Evil666's BRF Jar tek. This was my first go around and didn't use a PC. It's also moving ungodly slow. These were inoculated on 4/6 and still haven't completely reached around the entire jars. I live in the north and my house does get cold at night (not below 60F), I was wondering if that could be the cause of some of the slowness.  All I had available were these diamond cut tall half pint jars, so it's a bit hard to tell what's in there. No bad smells coming from any of them. Any insight would be appreciated. If you'd like any other information, please let me know.  Thanks in advance!













I picked up some spores from another vendor in the meantime as well as a PC. I have some what I think is mycelium in the new batch at around 6 days which is a week quicker than my last batch.

Your jars are looking good to me. The mycelium is  progressing well and no visible signs of contamination.

Cool temps will slow the growth. Increasing the temp a few degrees should speed things up a bit. Have patience. Good job so far on your first grow!

Welcome to Shroomery! :mushroom2:

They look good to me, so signs of contamination so far.

Taking out cakes from those jars is going to be challenging. It's recommended to use wide mouth jars for this reason.

The optimal temperature in the room should be between 21C-24C. Slower temperatures(<20C) are going to slow down colonization and thus increasing the risk of contamination. Higher temperatures(>27C) favors the growth of bacteria.

Time seems fine for that size type jar and how much its spreaded. Keep us posted! :thumbup: There's always some variance in them  though its only natural.

Hello and thank you for the reply! Yes I totally understand what you're saying in terms of jars- I know it's going to be a hassle trying to get them out. I actually used part of that link you sent me during my process but I appreciate your input. Thanks again!

Thank you! I was a bit worried about the time it's been taking for these things to fully colonize. I'm guessing when it's all said and done I'm going to be looking at around 6 to 7 weeks total before it hits the fruiting chamber. You're thinking this is okay though? Thanks again for the response!

Np, started pints around the same time as you, and ours look similar. You'll be fine, 4 more weeks tops for full colonization.
