quick mycenial grow question
    #2853808 - 07/03/04 01:20 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I set up my jars a week ago. They have been in a warm dark container ever since. Can I open it up and look at them? Should I sterilize my hands before doing so? Does light hurt them?

thanks...

You can look at them, if your in a clean enviroment its not a big deal, no need to steralize  :smile: about the light not to sure, I'm just following the PTek so its recommnded to store them in a dark area, but dont really know if it hurts them or not, I'm some what new to this my self.

yea, i got my jar sitting on a stool next to a window in my closet. the window has blinds on it, so it doesnt get to bright in there, but during the day its got enough light. it says Indirect sunlight is fine, so i figure eh, good enough place as any

You do not want premature pinning.
Could lead to comtans

:goodluck:

Light exposure during incubation is not as bad as many people like to believe. It can take days of full light exposure to cause pre-mature pinning in a paritally or even fully colonized jar. Usually pinning will not even occur regardless of light exposure until the mycelium has expanded to the boundries of availalbe nutrient substance (ie is fully colonized).

You can take your jars out and check them every day if you wish, you aren't going to hurt anything. For shits and giggles try leaving one out just so you can see how "bad" light is for colonizing substrate jars. Incubation in the dark is good, but not as critical as some people think.
