Lil guys are takin f.o.r.e.v.e.r
    #3187521 - 09/27/04 07:26 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hey guys, rather than searching for answers as to why my lil shrooms are taking so long, I'd just like to get opinions from you. It's been about 6 weeks and my jars are 75% colonized. I don't see any pins! What should I do to speed this up, or do you think they are contamed? They've been in sealed jars on my closet shelf. I just remembered they were there when I was looking for something, I totally forgot I still had them. Well, thanks for your input, Steph

If they are 75% I would take off the tape. And maybe flip them over. What strain? You sound like you're gonna be fine.

Incubating will spead it. Flippings good advice and so is taking off tape, if they have no room to breathe they wont grow. There shouldnt be any pins until fully colonized and removed from the jars. If they are contamed you can tell. If they look healthy then they probably are. To wet and sloppy is a way to spot bacterial contams and if it was mold it wouldnt be white.

2 look ok out of the 3, but one has water droplets all over the inside walls of the jar. Is that good or bad, I'm new at this, as you can tell. Thanks for the help.

Water drops is different from bacterial contams. Bacterial is sloppy and blah. Water condensation should be "ok" might take a little longer to colonize when wet (could be also part of your problem). Not much can be done about it though.

What should I do if my lids don't have holes and I want to give the cakes air before birthing them?

unscrew the lid slightly... that gives more air with a two-piece, IMO.

If your worried about contams you can put it in a ziplock that you lysoled down and unscrew the lid a bit from within there. Also with the water drops in there you may notice the water turning a yellow color. That is normal, don't panic and toss the jars unless it smells funny.
