Karo problem...
    #3347261 - 11/11/04 04:53 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I made 4 karo jars on October 20th, 2 each Cambodian and Ecuador.

The two Cambodian jars took off right away and now have large balls of mycelium in them.

The Ecuador jars haven't really changed at all in the last week. I can see the clumps of spores in them, and some of the clumps have thrown off very slight wispy strands of mycelium, but it's nothing compared to my Cambodian jars, barely visable.

Ideas??? :confused:

give em some time, and keep the temp optimal just like incubating jars, i just started using this tek and i have a jar of malabar that has more in it in two days then my b+ i started two weeks ago. so strains can act different sometimes

Jars are incubating at ~83-86?F.

It's pretty bizarre.

I mean, I knew that the Ecuador would be slower than the Cambodian, but this makes me think something is wrong..

I wonder if I did something braindead like forgetting to put the karo into the water, LOL. Nah, I remember swirling each jar around for 5 minutes trying to get it to dissolve.. Dunno. I'll give them more time of course, just kinda disconcerning.

Maybe I'll try another jar and this time I'll scrape a gob of spores from a print into it.
