Did you take the tape off of the holes in the jar? And why did the others not make it... contams, stalled, etc?

kramer says that your water content could be off or your dry verm layer is not applied correctly or just bad inoculation

A week is not long be happy and wait longer but if you are really screwed then........The few times I had failure to that degree. It was a baterial problem

Bateria isn't easly seen. except the subsrtate will be greasy looking. And when you open the jar to clean it out it smells very bad.

It is going to hard to say wha has happened to your jars.

spores are from a well known vendor i dont think that is a problem and the tape is off the tops and they arent stalled they just havnt started i worked my ass off doin 30 fuckin jars it wasent fun or easy very time consuming,also i think the water ratio might have been fucked up i was stoned and lost count i figurd better little then to much

Yup you probley got to little water in them then. let me ask you this?? How long did you PC them for?? A longer Pc time combined with low water content spells faliure.

It is possiable to add sterial water into jars once you see myc. growing

Yes I hear all the time on how well boilng works But I have tried it a few times just to find out and I think it's all bull shit. I had 50% or better contm. rates by just boiling jars. And I took it seriously. My conclustion is if you are tring to grow shrooms in any real volume then a PC is a must

Although I did not re boil them 2-3 times over 2-3 days. That is supposed to really make a big difference. :blush:
