First time grow, a few questions.
    #2905250 - 07/19/04 01:15 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Well, i used the PF TEK to do my first grow. setup was pretty basic for the average newbie, ball wide mouth jars, vermiculite, brown rice flower, spores.

procedure pretty much went good, made the substrate, put jars in a big pot with a lid, had them sit on a rack, filled about an inch with water, steamed (boiled) water for 1.5 hours. waited for jars to cool in pot (which took about 5-8 mins with lid off, stove exhaust thing on and kitchen fan on), then i had a small rotating fan blow on them to cool them down for another 5. well, i inoculated (flamed the syringe tip, made sure it was cool to the touch -withgloves- before i put in jars.)

i now have them sitting in a shoebox lid with an electric heater keeping the temp around 80-85, sometimes higher depending on the weather outside and if i dont catch it.

questions:

i did the inoc. thursday, it is now sunday, no signs of anything. when should i just toss everything if i don't see anything? like is there a # of days of no growth that basically nothing will come/will take a long time? i can't use this electric heater forever, it's very, VERY expensive to run.

also, they are exposed to *some* indirect light. should the jars be in total black/darkness?

thanks..

Total darkness to incubate and it can take up to a fortnight to start with spores. Usually 3 to 7 days.

Btw, why not make an incubator instead of that heater thing. Tub in a tub with water and a fish tank heater in the lower tub.
