Slow Colonization
    #3391187 - 11/21/04 12:27 AM (12 years, 21 days ago)

Okay, I'm sorry if this a newb question or has been asked before (I was unable to find another thread about slow colonization)

My PF cakes have been incubating for 16 days at roughly 86 degrees now which I have read to be long enough for cakes to fully colonize. I am using a heating pad. The strain is puerto rican.
On a few of the jars there are patches of very white myc that seemed to appear overnight and havn't grown since.
And then there is sort of a grayish white myc that is spread almost evenly throughout each jar that has been growing thicker as time has gone on. However, that is nothing compared to those fluffy patches. The entire jar must appear as the fluffy bright white to be considered fully colonized, correct? Will the grayish myc eventually become like the fluffy ass white myc?
Perhaps I am just being impatient but it's just that I havn't heard of colonization taking longer than 2 weeks under ideal conditions.
Also, I know I don't have cobweb so that is not a possibility.
Thank you for reading! Also if a pic is nesessary I can get one.

It's hard to tell without pictures but it sounds like you have cobweb mold(the lighter wispier stuff). Also, heatin pads are a poor source for heating.

as its been told to me it can take up to 2 weeks to be half colonized. 3-6 days for spore germination 5-7 days to be half colonized. and in my short experience it seems the last half takes soooooooo long (could just be me being impatient). how are you sure its not cobweb? do you have tape on your holes? did you pack down the substrate?

I use tape on the holes when im out of foil and no difference in colonization time, but the packed substrate on the other hand i have whitnessed slowing down a jar. and on the other hand it could just be the mycelium taking its time, ive seen many people post how there jars are taking forever and they get worried and then the jars finally finish and they find out they were worried about nothing, so as long as you know its not cob web then just wait it out.

are your jars packed tight? if they are the myc takes a while to get through it, and will appear much whispier and fainter, eventauly it takes over though.. i know thats what i did with my first grow and i'm still waiting on them :o (in a TiT jars done on the 1st... so i guess its not _THAT_ long)

you can try shaking up your jars to get the substrate loose.

I didn't pack the jars to the best of my ability. Also, you can even see large loose areas in parts of the jars. From what I have seen of cobweb this is not it. It does not look like cobweb, it is too thick and pure white. The other stuff doesn't look like it either IMO.
Sorry about the crappy quality (shitty ass webcam)
And I really did search 'slow colonization'. Maybe I did something wrong.. I'll try again.

Yeah, I'll probably move on to those. I just figured I start with the basics.
