noob in need of help

alright, heres my problem:

exactly two weeks ago i innoculated an envirobag and a rye bag, both premade, with cambodian spores. I used a liberal amount of solution, and the spores came from a shroomery sponsor. its been two weeks and i see zero visible growth on either bag.

out of curiousity i sort of tilted the rye bag over to take a look more in the center of the bag to see if i could see anything, yet again zero growth.

now i know growbags take longer than jars, but shouldnt there be some growth by now? or am i just being impatient?

I had the same problem with my rye bags. The problem was solved (for two of them at least, the other two I had contamed) by shaking/squishing the bags, to distribute the spores and what little mycelial growth there actually was, and then keeping them at the closest i could get to optimal incubation temperatures.
So try the shaking/squishing, and also keep them at the right temperatures. If they still don't show any healthy mycelial growth they are probably cotamed in some form or other.
Hope this helps.

Place the bags where they get a steady temp of 82-84 degrees 24/7, that may kick it in the ass a bit. :wink:

yo frylock,
i had some wierdness also using the bags i found my problem seemed to be that i innoculated deep into the rye instead of injecting close to the plastic, that means in between the rye and the plastic, when i did this shallow type of innoculation i got ten out of ten bags 100% colonized, before it was more like 40/60.
could be a factor, also it could just take another couple of days.??
good luck :grin:
