colonization stopped...
    #3421197 - 11/28/04 11:38 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

i have had 8 pf cakes in an incubator for almost a month now, and none of them are completely colonized. some are much further along then others.

i'm relatively sure my problem is caused by excess water in the substrate. this was my first attempt, and and put in too much water.

my question is, what should i do? i am getting some pinning on parts of the cake that are colonized. should i take the cakes out and get rid of the uncolonized substate and case the colonized part or something? or should i give it more time?

Same thing happened to me my first time. You can cut out the uncolonized parts and attempt to fruit whats colonized.

Try turning the jars upside down and take the tape or the foil covering the holes off. If that doesn't work do what kronny said.

life is one big question when your starin at the clock
