Jars look like they suddenly stopped growing
    #3048707 - 08/25/04 03:21 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

My 2 jars were started like 9 days ago, the one has mold only growing on the top and it looks like its gettin hard makin like lil white sticks, my other one has mold growin throughout it all, but it looks as if it suddenly stopped the past 2 days, i have them in a cardboard box with a heating pad underneath, its like 80-82 degrees, should i turn the heating pad off?

If you got anykind of contam get rid of them.

YES turn off the heating pad.

I hate contam's. Now that I'm useing tivek and pollyfill I belive the contam's for the most part comes from hands.Always wash hands before handling jars.

Good Luck

Are your jars getting enough air?  Many times they'll slow before complete because of a lack of air exchange, you simply loosen the ring at the top of the jar a quarter turn and this should help.  Tyvek is good because you can poke a hole in the lid before pcing and the tyvek will allow it to breath. 

Does the jar look extra wet?  This can be a sign of or lead to bacteria.

As far as the heating pad, i would leave it on because optimum growth temp for cubes is 86f deg and the closest you come to optimum temps the better chance the mycelium has.  I have a karo jar in a corner of my snakes tank sitting over the heating pad and i have growth 3 days later.

  Plus altering parameters will cause slow down itself as the mycelium will need to readjust.  Consistency in environmental parameters really helps.  Good luck
