Well, Im at day 5 (first time with corn though) and theyre all about 30-35% colonized. Supposedly Ive heard of 10 days to fully colonize. We'll see. Good Luck.

I noc'd up 12 quart jars about ten days ago and 3 of them are done with the rest mabye 50% done. Actually, one or two are even less than 50%. They are all different strains, so mabye that has something to do with it.

my foaf's corn has taken weeks to germinate if the temps are not high enough and the moisture content is high in the corn. If your kernels look wet, try heating the jars up to at least 86 (the optimal temp) if not a little higher to dry em up a bit... if they don't contam and you don't cook the spores (somewhere around 110F) you should see growth eventually.. if not you got some bacterial/invisible contam or your spores were bad!

What prepartion methods did you use for your popcorn? There could be a number of things wrong. Moisture content, temperature etc... B+ is fine by the way and isn't the cause of your problems.

Grains benifit is that of shaking. If water content is right (can be difficult to get perfect..takes a while..if its off, slow colonization will occur). Once germinated though the time will increase GREATLY. Also remember you are colonizing 3-4 times the substrate when working with grains. A grain jar can easily take as long or longer then a PF tek jar but your talking 3-4 times the substrate then your actually talking 3-4 times as fast JUST if they finish at the same time. Grains will take off once you shake them though.

B+ has been known to be a staller and slow colonizer.

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
